Stayed here with my wife in Aug 2012 for our anniversary.
We stayed in lodge 10 which from what I gather is the lower end room(only vacant room at the time). The room is big, basic and very cozy. It was actually perfect for what we needed.
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. My wife is celiac(allergic to gluten) and the hotel restaurant was extremely attentive to her needs for every meal! They even brought out a gluten free bread basket at dinner! The food was excellent too! Breakfast and dinner.
We used the spa facility for a massage. While the masseuse were very good, the ambiance was horrible! You could hear everything happening outside the room and they don't play any relaxing music to create a relaxing atmosphere or to even drown out the outside noise. I'm not sure why.
Other things we did around town:
Main street - 15min walk away from the hotel. Very nice street and some good stores to pick up local goods.
Waupoos winery - beautiful estate. Worth the visit!
Lake on the Mountain - definitely worth the drive to. I'm not sure what's more impressive. The actual lake on the mountain or the scenery overlooking Lake Ontario! We stopped by the lake on the mountain inn restaurant patio for lunch. Worth the visit as well!
And of course, what drew as to Picton to begin with, the sandy beach!
For the 2 hrs of nice weather we had, the beach was awesome! Nice white sand. Verrryyyy expansive beach. Plenty of room! The water stays shalow for so long! Very kid friendly.
There seems to be so much more to do in this town, we can't wait to go back. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway!
