“PERFECT! Very cozy and cute - just what we were looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

I had a great time! The room was beautiful and spacious. The a/c was provided at our personalized temp and definitely needed. The breakfast was sumptuous and again personalized for what time we requested. I loved the variety! The tourtiere was delicious with the chutney. The hosts were lovely. I don't think I have a remotely negative thing to say. I saw the negative reviews and I can't believe it was the same place. You need to keep in mind this not a cookie cutter 5 star chain hotel...It is the sweetest B & B!

The location is within easy walking distance to town with restaurants, bistros and the movie theatre. The location is also a quick and easy drive to Sandbanks. We received a pass to the park which saved us $16/day. One day the beach was closed as it was the busiest weekend of the year. Not to fear - the other 2 beaches were open and not nearly as busy as we thought it would be. There are 2 taxis if you want to go to the pub - Barley room is our favourite ($7/one way which was worth it to have a bevy safely).

They have a pool which would be quite handy if we actually had the time to use. It rained one day and we still found plenty to do. Keep in mind that the county needs sunshine and rain too! If you want to stay in there is a comfy front deck as well as books and magazines to read. Make sure to book a wine tour and see the amazing county.

There is a separate eating area for breakfast as well as separate lounge area. There was a bottle of wine in the room upon arrival as well as gorgeous fresh flowers. We had a separate bathroom which is worth the price. The tub was deep, no issues with the shower and Sherlyn provided several toiletries and even bath bombs if wanted.

Overall was very pleased for our ladies weekend. The value is incredible! I will definitely stay there again.

Thanks Sherlyn!

Thank you for making Sleepy Hallowell Bed and Breakfast your, "Home away from home".

You are truly patrons that appreciate the County, and planned a trip that did not just constitute a day at the beach. You included a winery tour , which was conducive to the wet weather at the time of your stay.

We try to promote seasonal flowers, fruits and vegetables. Any guests are welcome to reap the harvest of our gardens...PLEASE! Tomatoes are in abundance right now!

We appreciate that you were both respectful guests, and look forward to seeing you again.

My husband and I stayed for three nights at Sleepy Hallowell. This was our first experience in a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The accomodations were very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and the portions plentiful. The house is well decorated and is spotless. When one requests a private bathroom, the owner does not rent out the other room, which was the case with us. So we had a very quiet and private stay, were able to use the living room at our leisure, as well as the pool which was wonderful. A pass to Sandbanks Provincial Park is also given to guests for the duration of their stay, which we also used. The owner is very kind and has thought of every detail to ensure our stay was perfect. We will definitely stay here again when we return to the area.

We had a wonderful stay at Sleepy Hallowell. The house and our room were clean, comfortable, and relaxing. Spent much of our time lounging in and around the pool.
The owners are wonderful, and seem to have thought of every little detail, from pool towels to spare bathing suits if you've forgotten yours.
Great value! And the blueberry pancakes were awesome!

We have stayed at Sleepy Hallowell Bed and Breakfast a couple of times over the years while our home had some renovations done, and we ALWAYS send family there who visit us from out of town. It is not because it is conveniently located right nexr door to us, but because the mother and son team who run it are beautiful and kind people. They offer friendly and warm hospitality. The food is always excellent, and ample, the beds are comfy and the rooms are clean. Sherlyn has been doing this since 2000, and in this time frame we have NEVER heard any loud music being played during either the daytime or night time. We occassionally hear the laughter of her family and guests coming from the patio, deck, pool, or backyard while people are socializing, swimming or playing a sport of some sort, but it is a respectable noise that we hear. You can certainly feel the love and warmth coming from her home. Any one who complains about this establishment is clearly not someone who has stayed there

My husband and I stayed here last weekend with another couple. We had the small bedroom with a shared bathroom. The room is small but functional (we just needed a place to sleep!) It has air conditioning which is nice on those hot summer nights. It was very quiet and we both had a restful sleep. The room and bathroom were clean and well decorated. The location of the BnB itself is great - you can walk down Picton Main Street very easily from there, and it's also just a short (10 min) drive to Sandbanks. The owner kindly loaned us a Sandbanks pass (thus saving us almost 20 bucks to get into the park). The breakfast was yummy and served in a beautiful dining room. The owner was lovely and very accommodating to us - this was a very pleasant stay and we will definitely stay here next time we visit Prince Edward County. Highly recommended!

We thank you for sharing your review with others. The Provincial Park Pass to Sandbanks is worth its weight in gold, and is well used by our guests! We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The room you had is definitely a small one, not one we usually give away. It was great that you travelled with another couple. Maybe next time, you can flip a coin for the bigger room! LOL. Thanks again for coming, and we look forward to your return! Kind regards.

This was our 3rd stay at Sleepy Hallowell and we've enjoyed it every time. The home is a lovely old home and very cosy. Our room was great - the bed is so comfortable and we had a fantastic sleep. Sherlyn is a wonderful host and very friendly. She is the right mix of attentive host who also lets you do your own thing - she was even kind enough to let us use the pool quite late at night (the pool is definitely another bonus for us!). Our breakfast was absolutely delicious and Sherlyn accomodated both myself (vegetarian) and my partner (non-vegetarian).

We find that a lot of the B&Bs in Picton can be quite pricey, so for us the price is very reasonable with the added bonus that you get to use the Sandbanks pass (otherwise you have to pay to get into the park). We sat outside on a warm summer's evening and sipped sangria in the lovely garden, ahhh so relaxing...

Picton and the surrounding area is very pretty with gentle rolling hills and farms. It's a great weekend getaway. Sleepy Hallowell's location is great as you are just a short drive from Sandbanks and wineries but you are within walking distance of Picton's main street and go out for a bite to eat (we always go to the Acoustic Grill, a great little pub - they had yummy sweet potato poutine). We didn't want to leave!

We thank you for taking the time to share with others your positive experience staying at our bed and breakfast. We enjoy making guests feel welcome and comfortable. I am glad you found the service, food and rooms to your liking. We truly aim to please! We look forward to your return. Perhaps then my son will have finished his apprenticeship as a chef, and he can make you a breakfast that will make you want to take up permanent residence here! Take care, and well wishes to you.
