Bill, Debbie and Lise, thank you for your warm and kid-friendly accomodations, excellent food (the granola was AMAZING - thanks for the recipe!) and relaxing atmosphere. Although this is your first year, it's like you've been doing this for a decade. Congratulations on running such a fine B+B, we'll be sharing our experience with future Picton vacationers. We hope to... More

The Bells and Whistles Family Inn is a fantastic place to stay. Here is a list from my four year old listing what we loved about it: "the pool, diving board, slide, the playhouse, sandbox, the playground, toys, roasting marshmallows, breakfast, ... and we will be back!" Our kids loved the amenities, we loved that we could put the kids... More

I wrote to tripadvisor to request they add this Inn as it wasn't listed. We stayed here without any background information because the place was too new - but I had a good feeling and I can see now that my experience is not unlike everyone else! Bells & Whistles was wonderful. Everyone was so welcoming and we had a... More

Top quality new beds with freshly ironed bedding and large white fluffy towels...located in a pretty rural setting with a great pool in the back....welcoming and friendly hosts, Lise, Debbie and Bill. Delicious, fresh homemade breakfast including homemade muffins and bread. Rooms are small but well-decorated....and have air conditioning. We would recommend this B&B to our friends.

We were a party of six that decided to share a single room: a potential for disaster for any B & B owner. However, the proprietors welcomed us without reservation, and were nothing but gracious about sharing their space with us. The breakfast we enjoyed each morning was fantastic; practically everything was made from scratch. The backyard pool was very... More

after 58 years of travelling, I must say this is one of the nicest B & Bs. Bill, Debbie & Lise were excellent and friendly and warm people. They served a wonderful breakfast and were very accomodating. I stayed 2 nights and have booked another weekend in August. I highly recommend it. It has a beautiful screened porch and a... More

Lise and her family couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. My husband and I, and our 5 week old baby had a wonderful stay at Bells and Whistles. The rooms were spacious and comfy (our suite even had a seperate sitting area, which was perfect for nursing). The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms had lux spa tubs.... More

Service was beyond our expectations. Room was comfy & clean. Pool was a god send Being able to eat breakfast on a screened in porch was a plus. Having the option to BBQ your own food on the property was a plus. The family went above & beyond to meet our needs. Food was chef quality. We loved the quiet... More

What a great place for friends to meet for a getaway, They have so much space for this type of weekend. They have an in ground pool with a large deck area that we were able to sit around with a glass of wine and just reconnect with each other. In the evening Bill would start a campfire and we... More

We have been visiting the Prince Edward County region for many years and have stayed at a lot of different B&B's. Most will not allow children and the ones that do except kids weren't very kid friendly in reality. Finally we found the Bells and Whistles Family Inn. The hosts Debbie, Lise and Bill are amazing. They were very warm... More
