“The Absolute Best Place for Dinner in The County”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

My wife and I were celebrating our 42nd anniversary and made dinner reservations at this magnificent Inn. We were greeted by Edward and his wonderful staff wiith their usual cheerful alacrity. My wife ordered the veal and I the cornish game hen; not only were they a gastronomic delight but the presentation was something to behold. From the moment you enter this fine facility you are made to feel both welcome and part of the family. We highly recommend The Merrill Inn and have stayed several times and will continue to do in the future. Our sincere thanks to Edward, Amy and all the wonderful staff who go the extra mile to make your stay and meals memorable. Unfortunately due to our tight schedule we were not able to stay at the Inn this time but did enjoy a wonderful meal.

Just spent 2 days in Picton for a wine tasting tour and stayed at The Merrill Inn with 3 of my girlfriends. Staff could not have been friendlier. Edward made our stay warm and welcoming. He was most helpful with his knowledge about the surrounding areas and what we should see and do. Furthermore, we had a lovely and delicious dinner at the Inn as well as the included breakfast buffet. We would recommend it to anyone visiting the area!!

Silly man. I just thought the M.I. was this fantastic, friendly re-done old mansion as a cool inn at a very wonderful place to be. Really good coffee and food, sincere friendliness.

However, the Mrs., who is an un-named, award-winning interior designer, was impressed with all the "attention to detail." Everywhere, and in every way. "It was a feast for your eyes and other senses, but it met all the functional requirements: towels so soft, pillows so comfortable, beautiful dining room settings which change with meals, gas fireplace in room, antique furniture, sensuous aromas in the bath products, spotless rooms, etc., etc. Meticulous attention to detail make you feel secure and even pampered."

Apparently this design stuff is much more than just cushions everywhere - what would I know, I'm just a guy. Croissants at breakfast were sinfully good. Did I mention the coffee? Grange pinot gris with smoked trout as supper appetizer was the killer pairing of all time. (Also try Closson Chase chardonnay, Sandbanks Baco Noir Reserve, or just about any other County wine.) 4.99999 out of 5. Only way it could have been better - I'm really, really stretching it here - was to have Art-Is-In bakery bread (Ottawa) with supper.

Excellent accommodation, service and extras. Highly recommend this spot for visitors to the beautiful area. There was iced tea and cookies in the afternoon, a delicious breakfast and lovely nooks for reading the materials provided on the history of the region.

we have stayed here before and preferred the 3rd floor rooms to the first floor rooms. Nice touches include: cookies and iced tea upon arrival, in-house amenities (lavender bath products), robes (although didn’t find them at first), magazines, newspapers available.

If you like baths, bath on first floor was very small (too small for woman, let alone tall man). Each room has its own air conditioner, and sound of dripping AC from room above was very annoying.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments in regards to your stay with us which we appreciate very much.

In regards to the bathroom features of the guest rooms, I would like to clarify that all bathrooms have a Full Sized Tub and Shower. In January of this year we also installed new high quality residential Moen faucet and shower sets and waffle weave bathrobes that provide an enhanced quality experience for our guests

We look forward to seeing you again in the future and thank you again for choosing the Merrill Inn for your stay in Prince Edward County

Regards,
Edward Shubert

i had the pleasure of taking advantage of a special offer for room dinner, breakfast, and picnic lunch at the merrill inn in picton, ontario. we were also given free coupons for wine tasting at two of the nearby wineries. i highly recommend this picturesque venue. the owner, edward was nothing less than extremely helpful, cordial, and made us feel as if we were sharing his home with him. our room had its own ballcony overlooking a beautiful garden. meals were quite good. the accomodations were spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. the location is convenient in terms of getting to the many attractions that prince edward county has to offer. a very worthwhile respite from the busy lives we lead in the city.

Room Tip: one can view all the rooms on line and choose. our room had a private balcony, the only one in the...

We chose a weekend getaway pkg and it included a dinner for two and a picnic lunch with two wine tastings at local wineries. The dinner was fabulous and prepared with careful attention, Our hosts were warm and welcoming and made each guest feel as thought they were special.We highly recommend staying at the Merrill Inn and hope to do it again soon.Dave & Audrey -Bobcaygeon

Room Tip: We were on the 2nd floor with our own balcony and it was great.
