“Charming inn in beautiful country”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

This is a beautiful local inn in Price Edward County. Given the great ratings we had seen, our expectations were high, and we were not disappointed. The service was first class, the food was local, seasonal and simply delicious. The Winter Getaway package proved to be excellent value for a luxury experience. We will recommend the Merrill Inn to our friends.

The Merrill Inn is the perfect way to experience Prince Edward County. The Inn has beautiful rooms and wonderful porches to sit and enjoy a glass of local wine. The restaurant has a great breakfast. Make sure to have reservations for dinner! Main street Picton is only steps away from the Inn. The County has much to offer in the way of fine food, wineries, and beaches.

Again we enjoyed an excellent stay, our favorite Inn, really first class. You would be hard pressed to find a better dining room. Chef Michael always presents a menu with a wonderful variety of great dinners.

This Inn is truly a "no surprises" kind of place! Always excellent! I've been coming to the Merill Inn for probably 20 years or more, through ownership changes and the place is simply always outstanding. Everyone that has owned and run this estbalishment "gets it"! The current owners have optimized every aspect of its operation to ever higher levels! The food is incredible and in the winter, when the chef is trying out new dishes, ordering "the chef's surprise" never disappoints and the wine pairing is outstanding! They have kept the place a managable size and because of that everyone wins! Whatever the price, it is worth it! The value equation has been well implimented at the Merill Inn!

Room Tip: The thrid floor appartment in the rear works perfectly for a family, the rooms on the front can be a...

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay. Our room was very nice. The "Countilicious" dinner was fantastic. The staff and the owners were all very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend visiting Prince Edward County and staying at this Inn.

My 8 friends and I reunited in Prince Edward County at the Merrill Inn and had a blast! The accommodations worked very well. One of the rooms we rented was the Suite which served as a nice gathering spot for gabbing and wine between activities. The staff was incredibly helpful and considerate. Our package included breakfasts, a picnic lunch and dinner - all fabulous. Truly quaint, in a good way, and top notch as a getaway

My friend and I had poked down into 'The County' for the annual Artisan show and felt it an opportune time to take in the Merrill Inn recommended to me some time ago. We arrived to find that the regular menu had been replaced by an Italian themed Table d'Hote which offered several tantilizing choices with complimentary wine pairings. From our quiet cocktail in the drawing room through to dessert and coffee the attention to detail in decor, food, wine and the multitude of personal service touches throughout the meal by all staff simply enhanced the experience.

The food itself was superb and Chef Michael Sullivan is to be commended for the menu choices, plating, and taste of all that was presented to us.

The Merrill Inn has long been on my "list" of places to experience which came highly recommended and did not disappoint.
