About us

Blue Jay Cottages is a family friendly lakefront cottage retreat situated on the shores of East Lake, south of Picton, Prince Edward County. We are ideally located within 2.5 hours of Toronto and 3.5 hours of Ottawa, offering you a quick escape from the busy, noisy and smoggy city. Just imagine yourself being awakened by bright sunlight instead of your radio alarm clock, enjoying your fresh cup of coffee while looking out onto water sparkling under the early sun. All day you take fresh breaths of air, swim and sunbathe on a private sandy beach or at the long beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park.

Sandbanks Provincial Park


You fish off a boat in the middle of a lake, watch the turtles swimming nearby, and then you return to grill your catch on a BBQ in preparation for dinner. As you cook, you watch the sunset change the sky's color from blue to orange, to red and purple. After dinner you sit by the fire, roasting marshmallows, making smores for desert while sharing great conversation with your family and/or friends and watching the stars form constellations in the dark sky. We invite you to stay with us!
All of our cottages offer superior view of the lake. Each cottage contains an indoor toilet and a kitchen equipped with a stove, fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee machine and a wide array of dishes and pots.


For your entertainment we offer outdoor movie screening, karaoke, table tennis, children's playground as well as various water sports such as canoeing and water cycling. We also offer breakfast and dinner consisting of organic food and freshly made juices (must be pre-ordered in advance). We invite you to celebrate your anniversaries with us and offer our assistance with decorating the house prior to your arrival, should you wish to throw a surprise for a dear one.
