My wife and I stayed at AWAY for two nights and wished we could have stayed longer! We were greeted by Susan and Oscar, the basset hound and immediately felt right... More

A group of us stay in Picton for a few days every summer and this year we switched from our usual accommodations to Away and were not disappointed! We were greeted by Oscar, the resident Basset Hound, and also by Glen, one of the owners. We were given a... More

We stayed with Susan & Glen (& Oscar the hound!) for four nights as our honeymoon. We stayed in the Gardener's room, which was beautiful, spacious, and private, with a gorgeous view. Breakfast each day was delicious with fresh eggs and veggies from the garden. We were impressed with the attention to the smallest details, and the helpful suggestions our... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in the Gardiners Room. It was spacious and very comfortable. All amenities were provided and many extra items like a picnic basket and blanket were provided as well. The breakfasts were delicious. The hosts were very kind and helpful. A wonderful break close to small wineries and lovely restaurants.

We were so inspired by the (historical) property, land, scenery, Susan's art, Glen's breakfasts, new friendships and, of course, Betsy the chicken. We wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in the County!

My husband and I recently stayed at Away for the first two nights of our honeymoon. We could not have asked for a more perfect start to our vacation.
