Experience a well-deserved lifestyle at Shelter Cove

Shelter Cove is a year-round, waterfront community nestled on the shores of Lake Erie, adjacent to Selkirk Provincial Park. Surrounded by picturesque vistas, residents enjoy taking long walks to appreciate the magnificent views.

This area is part of the Great Carolinian Forest. Winters are less severe due to Shelter Cove‘s positioning along the shores of Lake Erie.

Close by, is a plethora of amenities surrounding Shelter Cove, including supermarkets, health care, golf courses and quaint boutiques, as well as a variety of restaurants and service clubs in nearby Simcoe and Port Dover.

Sustainable features

Privacy and security are paramount, and controlled access into this gated community provides peace of mind. For a very low maintenance fee of $112 per month, the grass is cut, the leaves are raked and the snow shovelled, providing you more time to do the things that you’ve always wanted to do.

The community produces its own drinking water sourced through reverse osmosis from an artesian well, and residents benefit from the convenience of natural gas. Shelter Cove also has its very own state-of-the-art wastewater plant, so there are no septic tanks.

Within reach

Prices here are very affordable. Bungalows, up to 2,000 square feet, are priced from $205,000 with leasehold tenure, on 65- to 110-foot lots. Many waterfront, water view and forest lots remain.

These manufactured homes are built indoors under strict quality control and are completely customizable.

With strict adherence to the Ontario Building Code, they are well insulated and come with a high-efficiency gas furnace for extended comfort all year long.

Leasehold tenure provides a financial advantage, because it saves purchasers the capital outlay of a serviced building lot, which can run as high as $150,000. Investing this money wisely has the potential of paying the annual cost of the lease, while the principal remains intact.

Destination Ontario: Port Dover

Latest News


Destination Ontario: Port Dover

Ontario’s best kept secret.

The lakeside community of Port Dover is located on the north shore of Lake Erie in Norfolk County. Only an hour’s drive from Hamilton, and approximately two hours from Toronto, this area is known for its beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery, as well as fantabulous festivals and unique experiences.

Norfolk County includes charming villages, towns and hamlets, such as La Salette (1875), Waterford (1826), Port Rowan (1825), and the county’s main town, Simcoe (1795), which boasts a vibrant downtown, a lush park system and several historic sites. Turkey Point (1793) was previously the county’s capital, and is aptly named for the rafter of turkeys that used to roam the area.

AGRI-TOURISM
Microbreweries, wineries, eco adventures and farm-related attractions are thriving in Norfolk County. Inasphere Winery is one of the newest, and features a tasting room and relaxing patio. The Hometown Brewery serves up craft beer at local restaurants and beer stores. New Limburg Brewery is housed in a re-purposed public school. Plans for expansion, as well as food service and event space, is pending. Opening soon is Charlottesville Brewery. Book a guided tour of local beer, wine and cider companies through Ride the Bine.

New Limburg Brewery

Red Apple Rides off er historical and culinary bike tours of Port Dover and Norfolk County.

FRIDAY THE 13th
Dating back to 1981, PD 13 (Port Dover 13) has become a motorcycle enthusiast’s tradition. Bikers from across North America descend upon Port Dover every Friday the 13th, making it the largest one-day motorcycle event in Canada. The most recent gathering was on the 13th of April, but gear up for another one on the 13th of July. More than 100,000 visitors and participants enjoy a festival-like atmosphere.

NATURAL ATTRIBUTES
Named one of the Top 10 Beach Weekend Escapes from Toronto (blogTO, 2017), Port Dover touts white-sand beaches and shallow waters. Glorious days can be spent walking the shores of Lake Erie.

Palm trees at The Beach House

Enjoy a cold one on the patio of The Beach House, surrounded by whimsical palm trees that are planted every year by the owner. Other Port Dover restaurants include, the 1946 Erie Beach Hotel (now run by the third generation), Urban Parisian, which features authentic, French-style bakery items, and a new seasonal patio is opening this year at Lago Trattoria.

Port Dover has an extensive boating and fishing history, and once possessed the world’s largest fresh-water fishing fleet. Commercial fishing still plays a significant role.

Shelter Cove

Waterfront community on the shores of Lake Erie

Many of us have fantasies about getting away from it all – leaving the rat race behind, and living an exciting and meaningful life. We seek a lifestyle that is close to nature, along with the beauty, peace and serenity that goes with it. Shelter Cove, a gated waterfront community on the shores of Lake Erie, makes this dream a reality.

Shelter Cove’s list of perquisites is extensive, and it’s difficult to list them all. Because Shelter Cove is a gated community, access is controlled, thus ensuring privacy and security for the residents.

Homeowners at Shelter Cove have the privileged opportunity to experience nature in all its glory. It’s customary to see a magnificent bald eagle soaring through the sky, or a flock of wild turkeys browsing the edge of the woods. Deer regularly make their rounds throughout the community.

For those who are into boating, Shelter Cove is idyllic. It’s only a short walk from your home to your dock, and you can be on the lake in a matter of minutes. The name, Shelter Cove, relates to the natural harbour that it’s on, which means that the private, on-site marina is protected from the wave action of the lake – ensuring that your watercraft is also protected.

If you like fishing, then you likely know that Lake Erie is one of Ontario’s best lakes for sport fishing, with an abundance of walleye and perch.

Shelter Cove’s on-site amenities will include a 5,000-square foot, residents-only clubhouse, which is to be completed later this year. There’s also a large outdoor swimming pool, along with planned walking trails and residents’ garden plots, as well as provisions for boat and RV storage.

Shelter Cover offers a quality lifestyle with built-in financial benefits

At Shelter Cove, chores like grass cutting, leaf raking and snow shoveling are all looked after, as these are all included in the low $100 per month maintenance fee. In addition, residents enjoy the convenience of natural gas. It’s important to note that the community produces its own drinking water, sourced through reverse osmosis from an artesian well. Shelter Cove also has its very own state-of-the-art wastewater plant, so there are no septic tanks.

Amenities surrounding Shelter Cove include supermarkets, healthcare, golf courses and a variety of restaurants, as well as quaint boutiques, and service clubs in nearby Simcoe and Port Dover.

Because Shelter Cove is situated along the shores of Lake Erie, winters here are less severe, thus allowing for the growth of trees and plants not found in Hamilton or Toronto. This area is a part of the great Carolinian Forest.

The homes at Shelter Cove are priced from as little as $173,000 with leasehold tenure.

They’re referred to as manufactured homes, which means that they are built indoors under strict quality control, safe from the elements, ensuring that the building materials are not exposed to rain and, therefore, unlikely to warp. Built to the Ontario Building Code, the homes are exceptionally well insulated and come with high-efficiency gas furnaces to ensure that you’re comfortable and cosy all year long.

Leasehold tenure comes with substantial financial advantages, because residents don’t have the capital outlay of a serviced building lot, which can run as high as $150,000. Investing this money wisely has the potential of paying the annual cost of the lease, while the principal remains intact. For instance, if you sold a home in Hamilton for $504,000 and moved to Shelter Cove, you could take out a mortgage for $184,000, and then invest the proceeds from the sale of your home and have an average annual return of just over $31,000. After paying the mortgage, leasehold fees, taxes and maintenance fee, you’d be ahead by more than $13,000 per year. Visit the Shelter Cove Sales Office for accurate facts and figures as it relates to your particular scenario.

CONTACT INFORMATION

The Shelter Cove Sales Office and Model Homes are open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, and by appointment on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
