“Relaxing weekend getaway in historic yet modern Victorian Mansion”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

My husband booked a surprise getaway for us at Absolute Suites for two nights in the Grand Suite. We arrived in Gananoque to a beautiful large Victorian mansion. I was expecting the furniture to match the exterior but was pleasantly surprised and delighted by the modern touch of the contemporary decor. It was done so well and tastefully. We had HD Bell Satillite TV - perfect for catching a bit of the Olympics when we weren't exploring Gananoque and Kingston! And, free wifi - an absolute must for any hotel/inn these days! Our room also had a kitchen but unfortunately we did not take full advantage of this feature. And, a big veranda looking out to a stone church - very lovely! The bed was firm yet comfortable and provided a great night's sleep. Phil and Petra, the owners, were perfect hosts. Petra was so kind and caring. Phil gave us excellent recommendations for dining in Kingston. They certainly know the area. If you stay here, follow their "scenic route" recommendation on the website from Toronto through Prince Edward County and Kingston to Gananoque; great directions and made for a more exciting drive than the 401. Also, this is within walking distances to the 1000 Island tour and Gan's main street. Very convenient!

I'd recommend this inn for couples looking for a getaway.

Room Tip: The Grand Suite was very cozy and comfortable.

It was our first time in the Thousand Islands, and we couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodations. It was a great value - very bright spacious appartment with a fully stocked kitchen. We only stayed 1 night, but it had everything to enjoy a much longer stay. Very well located near the main street and the water all within walking distance. The hosts are super friendly and the entrance is very private. Breakfast food was provided in the room...fruits, yogurt, milk, muffins, banana bread, coffee/tea, etc, etc. Cable tv too. Great value, i would definitely stay there again.
