My husband and I had the occasion to stay at AWAY Bed and Breakfast in Prince Edward County. Susan and Glen Wallis have done an amazing job of renovating a century farm house in a very upscale way that still retains the heritage feeling. The Gardener's Room where we stayed is large, comfortable with two seating areas and wonderful picture windows that afford a view to the lake and the surrounding countryside. They have thought of everything from carafes of cold water in the guest fridge to a rubber ducky on the shelf of the fabulous soaker tub. A walk in shower with a rainhead completes the picture. Susan's beautiful encaustic art is present in many places as are so many other interesting pieces. A little library area is available for guests on the guest floor as is a deck overlooking the lake. Summer time would beckon guests to sit out on the amazing marble patio in the back yard, again overlooking East Lake and perhaps take a liesurely stroll down the path through the garden to the deck on the water..
We were treated to a fabulous breakfast by Glen. His Eggs Benedict are nothing short of fabulous and he makes it look so effortless to prepare. Homemade hollandaise sauce tops off local eggs with yokes of radiant orange.
Susan, Glen and Oscar the Bassett Hound are all wonderful hosts.
My husband and I heartily recommend AWAY to singles and couples who truly want the experience of getting AWAY.
