We had such a great stay, over our expectations! Suzie and Jerry are so accommodating and friendly, and were absolutely great. Everything about the place is stunning: The surrounding river (which was great for going for a swim, and Suzie and Jerry were so nice to let me go with them to the best spot), the gardens are beautiful and the food garden amazing (which we were generously offered to help ourselves from), the views around the place amazing, and the interior of the house is a dream. Everything was super clean and we had everything we could possibly want/need and more. We would be thrilled to return back and have already recommended this place to lots of family and friends. Thanks for everything - Amanda and Ryan

When guests spend their entire getaway on our property and don't bother to visit anywhere else, we are honoured. To be the recipient of such kind words from people who have done extensive travelling around the world makes us feel as though we are accomplishing what we set out to do, that is to share our little island with others. We do hope we may re-connect again and are so happy you enjoyed your stay at the mill.

What a wonderful getaway. Easy-to-find location five minutes from highway but seemingly in the middle of nowhere! The mill is impressive and charming, and our hosts were accommodating and gracious. I highly recommend this spot for a romantic getaway to recharge and reconnect!

“A perfect relaxing, quiet rural stay”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in this unique and wonderful spot. It was the perfect central location for our exploration of the arts and taste trails of Prince Edward County as well as historic Kingston, the World Heritage Sites of the Rideau Canal system, scenic Peterborough and all the lovely areas between. Easy access to highways and country roads made our explorations simple and fun.
The unique character of this historic mill is enhanced by the enchanting gardens, the lovely decor throughout and the warmth of the hosts Jerry and Suzie. Our suite was well-appointed with comfortable and charming furnishings, thoughtful touches designed to enhance our stay and a real sense of comfort and welcome. We went to sleep with the soothing sound of the river and woke to the cheerful sound of birds giving us a real sense of peace and tranquility.
We took the opportunity to use the canoe for a truly relaxing paddle on the river and enjoyed our time by the fire pit and getting comfy under the delightful pergola. Next time we'll definitely take time to use the bikes provided, the hot tub and kayaks. But for this time, our stay couldn't have been more perfect.

This lovely couple were busy everyday seeing the sites of the surrounding area. They found our home to be a good central base for day trips to Kingston, Prince Edward County and even Peterborough. We had delightful conversations discussing the pros and cons of gardening in Victoria, B.C. and Ontario. They were able to see many different birds in our yard that they do not see in B.C. and also watch the family of baby geese come to feed every morning and evening. We were very pleased to host such a warm and friendly and appreciative couple and would welcome them back anytime.

Uniquely beautiful and relaxing island mill setting, kindly hosted by Suzie and Jerry. Leisurely passed our days cycling, reading by the river, strolling through the garden, dozing in the hot tub and to our surprise and delight - we even had the opportunity to feed horses at a nearby farm! A short drive to the Sandbanks, Mountain on the Lake and Picton - we capped off our last evening with a fabulous dinner at the Merrill Inn. Highly recommend this accommodation for an ideal getaway.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and were unable to unwind from your studies.
You were our first guests this year who were able to go cycling and it was great that the weather warmed and the sun came out for your spring getaway. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again.

“A relaxing and hospitable vacation!”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My partner and I had a lovely 3 night stay in this relaxing inn. We enjoyed the hot tub and had a large clean room. It was nice to have a small kitchen so we could make a meal in our room. The mill was a nice drive to PEC and lots of wineries and nice restaurants. Highly recommended!

It was a real pleasure to host such winter enthusiasts! I will say you had the perfect conditions for your outings on to our snow laden river. Right after you left, the thaw began. Maybe we'll see you for some summer boating and cycling.

We stayed at the mill in July 2014, I always dreamed of staying in a mill and this one has all the character I was looking for and even more! The room was well appointed and very clean, the bed is really confortable. Outside, you will find beautiful gardens, a cannoe and a hot tub. The hosts are very welcoming and they make you feel at home. You get alot for what you pay for, this place is simply amazing, the best kept secret in Prince Edward County!. I have to say, I fell in love with the place and wish I could've stayed longer but we will surely go again soon.
