“Cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

If you're looking for an inexpensive B&B very close to downtown Picton, this would be a good choice. The breakfasts were very good and quite generous and the host was friendly. Unfortunately, some things were not as advertised on the proprietor's website, for instance, we were looking forward to a dip in the heated pool, but no heat in mid-September so pretty much unusable; no "complimentary beverages", no offer to use bikes, no toiletries (unless you count a 1/4 full bottle of shampoo and an empty bottle of body wash). Rooms were clean, but it seemed as if the shared bathroom was not cleaned during our 2 night/3 day stay (we were the only guests using it however). All in all, an inexpensive basic B&B if you are not particularly interested in being pampered as the price was right. The use of the proprietor's Sandbanks provincial park pass is a plus. Also, this B&B changed location in the last few years, so some of the reviews commenting on the lake view etc. are no longer accurate as she is now in the city proper.

A wonderful get-away B&B in the heart of cider country. Cindy has opened her home to traveller's looking for a place to relax and unwind. Enjoy breakfast in the sun room while looking out over the lake and curl up after supper beside the wood stove. This home and Cindy's hospitality is truly a hidden gem - we'll be back!

The most wonderful place and a wonderful hostess. You feel at home, the place is calm and friendly. Clean bathroom, clean bedroom. Reasonable price, great breakfast, more than you can eat. When visitng, you can use her canoe, the bikes, sit on the dekt or lawn to lounge and read. The view is fantastic. Next door to a Pub and 12km to downtown. You can bike to Wapoos, the Cider place and a wonderful cheese factory. And it's right on the lake!

I went once with a friend and loved it so much that I went back on my own.

We needed a break from the city and decided to try a B&B for the first time. We had booked the room with the en suite washroom and found it to be adequate, with the en suite washroom being as large as the room!
However, you dont go here for the room.
You go here to relax on the huge sunroom overlooking the water.
You go here to sit and kick back on the huge patio (although it was too chilly this last weekend of May).
You go here for Cindy, who is charming and warm host, always available with a word of advice in touring the area and makes a very good breakfast every morning (Asparagus and Cheddar omlette the first day with Egg's Benedict the next with fruits, taters, toast, juice, coffee, biscuits/croissants and they were both fantastic!)
Our needs were perfectly met and I would defintely recommend a stop at the Fifth Town Artisan cheese place along with the County Cider as well which is a very pleasant ride away from Cindy's.
Picton is a 15 minute drive away and has some excellent restaurant's as well. We really liked Portabella for it's ambience and food as well. The pasta's were quite good.
I know we will be going back soon to Cindy's B&B

My husband and I stayed at Cindy's for a whole week. She gave us a discount for the week.
The location was marvelous for sightseeing. The fall colours and the wineries. Beautiful view from her deck out over smiths bay.
We lucked out on the weather and were able to borrow her canoe to tour along the shoreline. It was wonderful.
Her breakfast was amazing. We didn't have to bother with lunch.
Though the bedrooms were small (they were clean and decorated lovely)the rest of the house more than made up for it. Large TV room and dining room for guests to hang out.
Cindy's was an amzing hostess and went out of her way to look aafter us. Will definitely go back but it will be in the summer next time so we can check out the swiming.

I'll put the only downside up front, the only thing that kept me from giving it a score of 5 - the home is very cluttered with stuff everywhere. But the room and home were clean where it counts.

We biked in and Cindy was great at greeting us and making us feel at home. We stored our bikes under the deck. We took a swim in the lake, and paddled the canoe around for a bit. We relaxed on the lake's edge, and were busy watching hummingbirds, warblers, and other birds feeding in the yard.

After a nice dinner up the street, we relaxed in the sun room playing Uno, then headed to bed at around 8:30 PM after the sun set (hey, we were tired from biking).

Breakfast was amazing. We were so full that we didn't have lunch, only some cheese and crackers on the beach in Sand Dunes. We stopped in a small town for coffee mid-morning, and told the owner we were still full from breakfast. She asked "did you stay at Cindy's? Everyone comes in full from there...". Cindy is a great cook and hostess, and we will stay there again.
