“Great wedding location!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

Our friends were married here and as a wedding venue, it was very good. Beautiful grounds and buildings and great service at the wedding and at the front desk. We stayed in a basic room and it was very basic. There is not much privacy as you can hear people in other rooms and other levels of the inn. This is to be expected given the older age of the inn. The upside of this is the quaintness of the buildings/rooms and property. It is certainly a country getaway, very close to Ottawa. I would recommend staying here for a wedding/conference or any group function, but not necessarily just for a couple getaway.

Had a good time at a wedding there. The food and venue was good, and the staff were friendly and attentive. The grounds are beautiful and make for lovely pictures as all the trees were changing colour.

One thing I did find odd about the accommodations is that check out is 10am which I think is way too early when you are a day after a wedding or similar function, especially when you want to have breakfast. Our room was really cold because it was in one of the older buildings and the plumbing was noisy. The newer buildings have newer rooms obviously.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

We stayed here because my sister was getting married on the premises. We stayed in the main house, where the wedding festivities was taking place. We didn't have far to go when it was time for bed. Our room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Our guest room had bedroom with queen bed and a separate sitting area with a pullout couch for the kids to sleep on. The decor definitely reflected the "bed and breakfast"/country style of the Inn. This is not a contemporary and luxurious hotel. However, the decor is simple and it reflects very well the feel of this historical site. No complaints whatsoever. The outdoor ceremony was wonderful and the dinning hall looked amazing! The meal during the wedding was sophisticated and incredibly delicious. The continental breakfast which is included in the price of our night's stay also offered a very good selection. There is much to explore on the premises, but unfortunately, I cannot say that we wondered too far given our involvement in the wedding. But the grounds were lovely with beautiful spring blooms. This picture perfect wedding venue or relaxing getaway is highly recommended!
