We recently stayed for a second time at Away in the County. Again, it was perfect. As hosts, Susan and Glenn will stop at nothing to ensure that your stay is just as you would wish. A great restaurant either fancy or cheap? They know one. A quirky place to visit? They have a great recommendation. An up and coming winery? They've been there. Of course, the b&b itself is spotlessly clean and impeccably decorated. It's a great place to hang out. There's a nice stroll to the lake and the sunset is well worth coming "home" for. If you have purchased food and drink during the day, there is a shared fridge to keep it fresh and cool or you can eat in the screened in porch or on the balcony (while watching the sunset). And speaking of food, the breakfasts are memorable. They always start with Glenn's muffins, still warm from the oven, and are followed by your choice of either a savoury main (often with eggs from Susan and Glenn's chickens) or a sweet main. It's hard to say no to seconds. And it is impossible for us to contemplate staying anywhere else in Prince Edward County.
