“Outstanding Hospitality and Excellent Accessible Accommodation”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

I was reluctant to write this review, because I don't want to share this gem of an Inn and have it changed by the kind of popularity that has turned Niagara-on-the-Lake into an expensive joke. Noneless, the proprieters deserve well-earned kudos for this wonderful destination, so read on fellow travellers...

Our family includes a member requiring accessible accommodation, so we chose Huff Estates for an extended weekend stay in beautiful Prince Edward County. The staff were welcoming, helpful and bent over backwards to extend outstanding hospitality. We booked the Winemakers Suite and the handicap accessible room. Both were immaculate and well-appointed. My Mom was very comfortable in the accessible room aside from smal quibbles about the floor of the roll-in shower (a bit slippery even with the shower mat) and the height of the accessible toilet (low for taller folks with bad knees, easily compensated for by the seat height adapter that we carry with us). Both Mom and Dad raved about how comfortable their bed was, and all members of the excursion enjoyed excellent nights of sleep thanks to the king-sized beds, quality linens and decadent surfeit of pillows in both rooms (possibly also aided by a "touch of the vino" from the associated winery). The rooms were so quiet it felt like we were the only guests at the Inn, so I was surprised by the number of people we encountered in the breakfast room on the first morning!

The breakfast buffet was adequate if not gourmet, with plenty of substantial items to fill up on before a days excursion in the County. Staff cheerfully provided the necessary tableware and utensils to support our family BBQ on the patio of the Winemakers Suite (this unit comes complete with a nice propane BBQ, outdoor bar, patio furniture and lounge chairs, and could easily enterain 10+ guests). Quality tea, coffee and juices were available 24/7 in the breakfast area, and a nice selection of Huff Estates wines were available for purchase at the front desk.

Staff were understanding and flexible when we requested a late check-out. Having a lovely art gallery and winery on the same grounds provided charming diversions on the day we were too tired to wander the County, although the fledgling sculpture garden is only marginally accessible as yet. Nice views over the fields and vineyards.

Prince Edward County is a beautiful, hospitable, affordable and sane alternative to the Niagara wine region, much more geunine and laid-back with talented arts and culinary communities. The close connection to the land is obvious, and the area manages to be a quality destination without pretention. We were saddened by the closing of Fifth Town Cheese but were consoled by other finds such as Slickers Gourmet Home-made Ice Cream in Bloomfield. Our visit was far too short for the many things we wanted to see and do, and we will be back soon with Huff Estates as a "new favourite" home base for our visits. Looking forward to returning for a fall or winter retreat, to cozy up to the fireplace (or in the jacuzzi) with a good book.

Despite looking hard, we could not find comparable size/quality/accessible rooms in the Niagara Region or Toronto, and even lesser accommodation in those areas were considerably more expensive than the rooms at Huff. For style, comfort, hospitality and value, Huff Estate Inn can't be matched!

Room Tip: Splurge on the Winemakers Suite and revel in the expansive indoor/outdoor space!

We had a lovely two night stay at Huff Estates. What we really liked most was the private vineyard patio. It was May so not quite warm enough to spend a ton of time on the patio. However it was a great option for sitting out and enjoying a glass of wine and some cheese in the afternoon. The hotel also arranged a taxi service for evening dining which I thought was a great service. Breakfast was not spectacular but certainly enough to start your day. Huff Estates wine is one my favourites of the area. I'd definitely go back again especially for a summer time stay so we could really enjoy the private patio!!

Stayed at Huff Estates for one night in June as part of a family gathering. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable, nicely appointed rooms. Nice breakfast. We enjoyed visiting the gallery and adjacent sculpture garden. Would definitely return.

Recently used a Jaunt.ca special to stay two nights at this Inn and Winery. Winetasting and tour was included and was nicelly done. The Inn itself is modern with a cheery breakfast room for the included self-serve continental breakfast. The food was bought at local grocery store-no homemade muffins here and if one came towards the end-all fruit was gone and not replenished. The rooms themselves are lovely and have a very nice fairly private patio that would have been great to use-but we had rain and cold weather. The beds and bedding were of good quality and my only complaint was that the small TV was very difficult to see as it was mounted very far from the bed. Staff were friendly and they were working on enclosing their luncheon area so it was not available to use. A nice homebase to tour the area.

We booked our one night stay through the Jaunt voucher May 6 to 7. We had a wine tasting the day of May 6 which was great as we tried PEC Cuvee Peter F. Huff; two chardonnays (one was oaked); two merlots (one also oaked); and two dessert wines. They were all very good, especially the Peter Huff sparkling.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions for places to eat in the area (Bloomfield, Picton, Wellington).

Our room looked to the interior courtyard with the water feature. After our wine tasting, we sat outside on our room's patio and had something to eat. Very relaxing! Our room had a high ceiling, a king size bed, which was sumptuous with the pillow topper and lots of pillows. We borrowed a free (!) DVD from the front desk and watched in bed. It was so quiet and peaceful. We had such a good night's sleep! The room and bathroom were both spacious (we may have had the wheelchair accessible room #6).

Breakfast was great with lots of choices: fresh fruit (pineapple, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, oranges); cold cereal, waffles (you make yourself), wraps-a-go-go with tortilla stuffed with scrambled eggs, cheese); yogourt, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, croissants, danishes, scones, bread, coffee, juice. It was really spectacular.

We would definitely stay here again!

We statyed here the end of Feb 2012 and enjoyed every minute. The front desk staff treated you special as soon as you arrived. They made you feel like you were a guest in their house. The room we were given was gorgeous...we loved the king size bed. We'd like to return in the summer to take advantage of the patio and grounds.The complimentary wine tastings at Huff Vineyards were a nice touch. We went into Picton on Saturday night came back to the hotel and wanted some coffee. The night staff put on a fresh pot for us, showed us where all the coffee cups, cream, sugar, etc. were and made sure we had everything. The complimentary breakfast on Sunday morning was fantastic; they had a great selection and you didn't leave hungry. All in all the staff here made the weekend fantastic. I highly recommend Huff Estates; you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: All the rooms are on the same level and they have theme rooms. I don't think their is a bad room...

The rooms exceeded our expectations. I expected more of a standard hotel look to them, given the ultra-modern look from the outside, but they were far better. High ceilings, very comfortable beds, beautiful washroom area. Because they are all on the ground level, each room has a walkout to an individual deck area. We had a package that included a tour of the winery which was great.

Restaurant area was very open and offered a nice buffet style breakfast. Not a 'fine dining' area but good for a quick breakfast. Only strange thing is we walked through the kitchen galley area to go our room.

Only downside is it is still a 15-20min drive to Picton which is where we went for dinner.

Room Tip: We overlooked the inner court yard, which was fine, but if you go get the rooms overlooking the vine...
