“Bed & Breakfast & Bachelorette”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

My bridesmaids knew how much I actually wanted a relaxing bachelorette party before the big day. So they whisked me to Away in the County. Sue & Glen are fantastic hosts. From the moment we walked in they welcomed us with open arms! The location itself is gorgeous and you can see how much love and attention they put into it. From Glen's carpentry work introducing large and bright windows and magnificent mix of wood, stone & glass, to Sue's studio and her amazing taste in art throughout each space. Their love of Canada & Ontario also shines through with the foods and products they use. Both Glen & Sue's spirits are high and friendly! Both of them are amazing cooks and I could rave for hours about the breakfast they serve. YUM! You will love Away in the County!

Our stay was perfect! and we were delighted to be some of the first guests to stay in this wonderful mix of new and old (Glen is a talented carpenter and built onto an old farmhouse), interesting in that Susan's art studio is part of the house and her lovely images are throughout, fantastic breakfasts, attention to detail, loved the comfy king bed and view over East Lake out the picture window in the Garden Room and particularly loved the company of their Bassett hound Oliver!
We would definitely go back and are already recommending it to our friends! Enjoy!!!

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review. The making of AWAY has literally been a labour of love and we are glad our guests are appreciating our relaxed environment and wonderful views. And yes the Gardener's room is a gem of a room for that perfect get-AWAY.

The attentiveness of Susan and Glen ( the owners ) was amazining , the rooms were very very comfortable, the breakfast were to die for...Glen makes the best eggs Benedict we have ever tasted, and of course Susan muffins with home made jam ,what a great way to start the day!
Fresh brewed coffee starting at 8:30

Lots to see in the area, along with their helpful tips on the best routes.

It really felt like home, we have already booked for next year May 24th weekend.

With out a doubt the very best B&B we have ever stayed at.

Thank you for your wonderful review. We do our best informing guests of all to see in the County and the most convenient routes to get there. We appreciate your get-away time is valuable and don't want you to waste a moment.

Yes our eggs benedict is a big hit among our visiting guests! Glen has perfected his hollandaise sauce into an art form.

We look forward to your next stay on the May long weekend next year and rest assured our eggs benny will remain on the menu.
