The Loft at Nine Gables
Ranked #13 of 41 Picton B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 July 2013

We had an excellent time at Nine Gables. We stayed in Le Petit Trianon, a large and beautifully decorated (French-themed) room facing a quiet street close to downtown Picton. The in-suite bathroom was spacious, clean and modern. The common space for guests include a kitchen, dining room, living room and garden, which is very pleasant. After a good breakfast, we went to sit outside with our coffee, to enjoy the sun and visiting birds. The hostess was very nice and understanding. We would recommend this B&B to anyone !

We booked the Cottage Rose room at the last-minute for the Canada Day long weekend, staying two nights. We found Nine Gables at the recommendation of one of our friends. The Cottage Rose has two twin beds, but it was so comfortable, clean, and cozy. The Cottage Rose room is a shared bathroom arrangement with the Lady Fern room, but the other guests hadn't arrived on our first night, so we had the entire upper floor to ourselves for the price of one room. Even when the other guests arrived, the shared bathroom arrangement wasn't an issue because the place was kept so clean and tidy. We couldn't be more happy with our experience.

The B&B is operated by Diane and Michael as a retirement hobby. They make it feel homey and welcoming, an elegant cottage getaway in the heart of Picton. Their warmth and attention to detail is evident throughout the home and mirrored in the breakfasts that they prepare fresh every morning. We had an amazing quiche, fruit tart and fresh fruit on the first day and French toast with bananas and natural maple syrup, bacon, cranberry muffins, and fresh fruit the second day. Diane and Michael also offer many brochures and maps of Prince Edward County available for guests with two binders of descriptions for restaurants and other attractions in the area. Sandbanks Beach was a wonderful recommendation by Diane. The sun room is well stocked with books and games to entertain guests and the garden is like a secret getaway filled with little discoveries to be made.

We're so glad we found this B&B, it was very affordable and we definitely look forward to visiting again in the future!

Our little retirement business has been a delightful experience. This is largely due to the positive feedback we have received from guests such as yourselves. Our guests continue to enrich our lives on a daily basis and make our enterprise worthwhile.

We visited Prince Edward County in May for a bicycle weekend with friends. "Nine Gables" was the perfect B&B! The room we stayed in (Le Petit Trianon) is the most beautiful B&B accommodation we've ever enjoyed. Diane and Michael are enthusiastic and helpful hosts and our breakfasts were wonderful. This was our second annual bike weekend and I'm worried that there will be a stampede for "Nine Gables" next year because we raved about it so much! We'll be sure to book early.

We've stayed here on two occasions; once in July 2012 and again in May 2013.

Diane and Michael are wonderful hosts: attentive, personable, and fantastic cooks. Our breakfasts on our first two-night stay were so good that I looked forward to breakfast for a full week before we arrived in May!

The rooms are very comfortable; the house is on a quiet street about 15 minutes from the main part of town by foot; the bathroom is immaculate and the whole place is full of thoughtful touches. We enjoyed late afternoon snacks on the back patio on both occasions and really appreciated being able to store our food and drinks in the fridge.

As far as I'm concerned, it's not worth considering staying anywhere else in the County when planning a trip out there - it's like planning a visit to see an aunt and uncle!

We stayed toward the end of May 2013 and enjoyed Nine Gables tremendously. We were in Le Petit Trianon, which is a large, beautifully decorated bed/sitting room with private bath. We also had the use of the large living room, sun room and lovely garden. The place was very clean and tidy, the host very helpful and friendly, and the breakfasts were amazing. We loved the place and will definitely return.

This was our second visit staying in Le Petit Trianon suite at Nine Gables, and everything certainly lived up to our expectations. Diane is a very welcoming, friendly, gracious host, who gives great suggestions for places and restaurants to visit. She even remembered our first visit two years ago! The house is beautifully decorated and has a lovely, calm atmosphere. The wonderful garden is the perfect place to sit and relax after a day out. Diane's breakfasts are delicious and bountiful; she obviously puts a lot of thought and effort into creating her menus. We will definitely return and highly recommend this B&B in beautiful Prince Edward County.
