My wife and I wanted a romantic, private week-end getaway, and we found the perfect spot. The Empire Suite at the Chatsworth Suites was everything we were looking for, and more. We had heard about Prince Edward County and Picton from other friends who'd been there, so we knew it was a great place for dining, wineries and beaches. And the Chatsworth Suites, also recommended by friends, turned out to be simply the best place to stay.
The Empire Suite was pure luxury: beautifully appointed room, super-comfy king-size bed, HD TV, A/C, refrigerator and microwave and a great shower! We knew we were going to dine out a lot, but be able to have a self-catered breakfast in private in the suite was great. The proprietor, Kevin, keeps a good stock of breakfast items for just about anything you'd like: cereal, toast, fruit etc. We had our choice of just eating in the room, or going out to the table in the gorgeous, private garden. We did both, depending on our mood.
Kevin also knew all about the "things-to-do" in the County: restaurants, wineries, Sandbanks Park. Our favorite dinner out was at Blumen, which Kevin recommended highly and booked for us. Truly fine dining. We also had more casual meals right on Main Street in Picton, which is an easy one-block walk from the suite. For live music and casual food we went to The Acoustic Grill, also an easy walk. And we spent a lovely afternoon on the beach at Sandbanks, on beautiful Lake Ontario, with a pass provided along with the suite as a nice little additional perk.
And after a nice night out, just coming back to the great room to relax was a treat in itself.
All-in-all it was a great place to stay, not to mention a great value for all you get.
We'll be back, and have already recommended it to friends and family.
