“Great Host & Hostess”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Nine Gables is managed by Diane and Michael a couple who pay great attention to detail, as a result the Le Petit Trianon suite and bathroom have everything you could possible want, from good reading lights to read in bed by, a high end rain shower in the bathroom, to a very comfortable mattress. Diane was very helpful, directing us to an excellent restaurant for dinner and suggest particularly good sights to see and wineries to visit. We'll certainly return on our next trip to Prince Edward County.

Thanks for your very comfortable accommodations, cordial service and excellent tips on pond construction. We truly enjoyed our stay at your lovely B&B. Le Petit Trianon was superb and we hope to make a stay there an annual event while touring the wineries around Picton.

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As you can probably tell from our blog, we are always willing to talk about our adventures with The Pond and other household projects - past and present.

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!

Room Tip: If you don't want to share a bathroom, book Le Petit Trianon room. If you have 3-4 people, you...

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!
