“Great Weekend at Away!”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Had a wonderful time at Away (in the county). Our room was great, comfy bed, sunlit with a great view out into the lake. The soaker tub, with the convinient wine & book tray were throughly enjoyed. Lots of little spots in the B&B to relax in, we enjoyed both the deck with the lounge chairs and the fire pit area by the docks.

Thank you Umbreem for the lovely review. We are glad you enjoyed your time at AWAY! And we are happy you enjoyed the little extra thought that we put into some of the items we have for guests to use in the rooms. Sometimes it is just those little things that can make a big difference.

Glenn and Susan are the perfect hosts, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the county they've adopted as home. Glenn is the breakfast chef and whips up great choices each morning, prepared from local farm fare with selections from area food folk - always downright delectable. Each room is a prize to behold and ours was a great comfort to be holed up in; attention to design and detail delight the eye and senses at every turn. The Wallises deserve to be proud of the marvelous getaway they've built to share with travelers to PEC. No review would be complete without mention of Oscar. If you like, the gentle, patient Basset hound will let you massage him behind the ears. He might even remind you the second time. But dog's day isn't done without his occasional reminders to birds and squirrels just which critter is king at Away outside. Susan and Glenn genuinely want their guests to enjoy the county and have plenty of suggestions to help you fill your day, and evening. Couldn't have been more satisfied with our stay at Away in the County.

Room Tip: Every room has a great view of East Lake. Muskoka chairs and a fire pit on a platform at water's...

Great conversations, great food, great view and great hosts. We even got muffins to go home with, what more can you ask?

The only advice I'd make is maybe have a mini bar /stand upstair with tea kettle, cups, glasses, coffee and tea..etc. Many B&B we stayed had this feature and it comes very handy later at night.

Thanks for everything Susan, Glenn and Oscar!

Room Tip: All rooms were beautiful.

A very late, but needed review. We had a weekend getaway here, and it was fantastic. The whole house is very beautifully decorated, and tastefully displays Susan and Glen's artistry and craftsmanship. We loved our stay there, had a beautiful view from our room. The breakfast was delicious. Susan and Glen were lovely hosts, more than willing to help us plan our days. They provided a great balance of friendliness but also gave us the privacy we were looking for. I would love to visit in better weather where we could enjoy the property more, and enjoy breakfast in the screened in room. An amazing place to get away from it all. Thank you Susan and Glen for a wonderful weekend!

Room Tip: We loved the Gardeners room-and a beautiful bathroom too!

Susan and Glen made our visit outstanding with their well designed house which is a joy to
stay in. Then you add in the gourmet breakfast, wine glasses in the room, space in the guest frig for chilling the wine, picnic blanket and basket, superb linens, handmade lavender soap, and
so many more small details. All this with the backdrop of beautiful Prince Edward County seen from every window.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at AWAY in the County during a weekend getaway to celebrate her birthday this year. Susan and Glen were excellent, easy-going hosts and provided us with a lot of great suggestions for places to eat and things to see around the County, sites and restaurants we probably would have missed otherwise. Breakfasts were delicious and our room (the Artist's Room) was beautiful and comfortable. We hope to visit again during warmer months so that we can enjoy their gorgeous outdoor space that backs out on to Lake Ontario. We highly recommend AWAY in the County!

My two daughters and I all live in Toronto, but seldom have an opportunity to meet without their delightful children, who do tend to monopolize the conversation. Christina spent three hours researching places to stay in the County, and chose Away for us to celebrate our collective birthdays. It is a perfect choice for a special occasion. Andrea appreciated the gluten free breakfast, with cornmeal muffins and omelette made with eggs from Susan and Glen's henhouse. Away is close to the famous Outlet beach-- five minutes-- and about ten minutes from Picton. Across East Lake is a great art gallery, the Mad Dog, where Susan and other local artists display their work. Susan and Glen have a lot of experience with design, and it shows in the layout of their home, which takes full advantage of the views over East Lake, from their marble patio, upstairs balcony, or screened porch. Each room is tastefully decorated with collectibles, art and antiques. They are very thoughtful hosts; what a nice touch to come home to a game of Scrabble outside our door, just in case we were at a loss for what to do. As it turned out, we spent several hours in bed with the wonderful collection of books on the County. Susan even cranked out some gramophone music for us. Don't miss this gem.
