“A most pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

We booked the Manse for a get away with friends because it was available and reasonably priced for this type of property. Although the booking process was efficient and responsive we did not have high expectations. What a surprise! The Manse is a meticulously renovated building that has left nothing wanting. The decor, the rooms, the atmosphere, and the service were all outstanding. Kathleen and Chris (chef) make the dynamic duo of professional and welcoming staff. The food and wine pairing offered for dinner was excellent and the breakfast..., everything from the homemade granola, to hand smoked bacon in the Eggs Benedict, provided a great way to start the day. Looking forward to our next stay.

Four of us stayed during Countylicious this weekend. It was our first time at The Manse and what an amazing spot in Picton. Kathleen is so welcoming and really understands how to make her guests feel comfortable. Chris came out to see how we were enjoying the hot tub and made us feel even more at home.

They have thought of everything including slippers, a self serve fridge/coffee tea and gorgeous rooms that each have gas fireplaces, comfortable sitting areas and beautiful beds. The whole inn has remarkable details when it comes to lighting, colours, art and is so clean and new. They haven't cut corners in any way while renovating this building and it is so enjoyable and such a treat to stay there.

The breakfast was gourmet and delicious (Chris is a wonderful chef) and the dining area is so bright and pretty.

The attention to detail during this stay was above and beyond. This is our new favourite place to stay in Prince Edward County!

A really lovely new inn in the Prince Edward County area. We went for my husband's birthday with our new baby and had such a great time - the rooms are gorgeous and comfortable with such nice features; the shower was amazing. It's so nice that the Manse is licensed as well, there's a great selection of local wines by the glass or bottle and it's awesome to be able to enjoy them in your room. Our breakfasts each morning were made to order and just delicious. The church chime is not loud at all and never woke us up - in fact, it added to the charm of the inn. After a very disappointing stay at the Claramount Inn, it was refreshing to see that this smaller property really cares about its guests! The Manse is such a wonderful addition to Picton & we're looking forward to going back this summer.

What a a treat it was to spend a night at the Manse! The Manse is new, tastefully decorated, and intimate, and the food was absolutely DELICIOUS. We haven't enjoyed such a good dinner in a long time and the whole experience was just wonderful. Beyond expectations and highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had the round room (number 7?), which was very spacious, but all rooms looked good.

We recently stayed at the Manse in November for a birthday surprise. Wow is right. Fantastic spot as it is beautiful, the food fantastic and Chris and Kathleen are friendly and know how to make you feel welcome. All of the rooms look lovely as we got to have a peak at all of them. We stayed in 6 which was lovely. Rooms are super clean and the entire Inn is tastefully done. We did the wine pairing with our meal and it was so enjoyable. Kathleen clearly knows what she is doing. Chris is a great chef and took the time to tell us how he made everything taste so delicious. All in all the birthday surprise was a huge success. Brian is still talking about his meal with the wine. Chris and Kathleen even made the effort to come out singing happy birthday with dessert. I think it is the best place to stay in Picton as it is cozy, great managers, it's clean and the food is awesome.

Wow! What a beautiful Inn. We had a phenomenal time celebrating our first wedding anniversary at the manse. The Inn was extremely clean, cozy and comfortable. The bedrooms (and entire facility) were decorated gorgeously. The restaurant was outstanding- the dinner was one of the best meals we've had in a long time. We're still talking about it! Breakfast was lovely too. And the service was fantastic- Chris and Kathleen were excellent! We hope to visit again soon. Thank you!!!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our room! All looked great!

My partner and I just spend two nights here, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We dined at the Inn on the night of our arrival, with an upgrade to wine pairings, and were delighted with the meal. The main course, pickeral cheeks, was outstanding, and the wines offered by the hosts were great as well.

Breakfast was terrific, featuring all local ingredients, and the charcuterie plate we had the second evening was also delicious.

We liked our room (#3) and thought it was very tasteful and comfortable, and we enjoyed the hot tub as well (though not the pool - it was November!)

We really enjoyed the location, too, just off the main street of Picton, making it easy and convenient to go for a quick walk in town, grab a coffee or snack, or head out for some wine tasting in the surrounding country. Definitely recommended for people nearby (Toronto, Ottawa, etc.) looking for a quick vacation with a little bit of luxury.
