“did not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

D & L was recommended by the local C of C, We arrived in early afternoon but were still welcomed by Irene with a glass of her "famous" lemonade. The hosts could not have been more accommodating, helping us plan our "tour" and arranging reservations for dinner at a local restaurant. The room we choose was small but comfortable and as the other reviews have said. The breakfasts were well above par. I feel the best reccommendation is that we would definitely go back again.

Other reviews have talked, justifiably, about the excellent home-cooked breakfasts and the views from the deck over Picton Bay, but in a sense, the success of the Duck and Loon is based quite simply on the fact that you feel comfortable in the house. There is no sense of constraint and people conversed easily in the living room and dining room. The quality of the guests was notable as well: there was a lot of really engaging conversation over breakfast. As for the service, it is also exceptional. All the details are looked after quietly and efficiently by the Dobinsons. We were down for a family wedding and it was the perfect place to stay. If you visit Prince Edward County (and it you haven't you should) and you like bed and breakfasts, this is an ideal place to stay. .

This did not disappoint. The B&B was more than we expected. We stayed in the Bayview Room, which was spacious, comfortable, and also had a great harbor view. In addition, there was a large deck overlooking the bay, where the guests could relax whenever we wanted.
Our hosts, Irene and Bill, were wonderful - extremely friendly and helpful. With dinner reservations, helpful hints and itemized maps for touring, free wine tasting vouchers, and delicious home cooked breakfasts - we were certainly very well looked after.
Would definitely return to this place.

We recently stayed at the Duck and Loon for our 15th wedding anniversary and we are certainly glad we did. The B&B was super clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. We stayed in the back room with an amazing view. We were welcomed as soon as we showed up and instantly felt very much at home. The breakfasts that were served were amazing and very filling, with an assortment of fresh fruits, homemade muffins and a different meal served each day, as well as endless amounts of coffee or tea. The most amazing thing is the view of the Picton Harbour during the day as well as night. Oh boy, we had the pleasure of being there and treated to a full moon and a 'blue moon'. The weather co-operated with us as we got to sit outside on the deck or the patio swing for hours and watch the unbelievable moon. Bill and Irene were extremely helpful recommending places to eat, visit and shop at. They helped us plan out our route as well as provided us with complimentery sampling coupons for the various wineries. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area and say hello to Bill and Irene for us!

Recently stayed at the Duck and Loon for a biking weekend. Can't say enough about the hospitality that Bill and Irene showed us , not to mention the great breakfast! Location is great as they are on the Picton Bay (beautiful view from the Deck)! Best Restaurant in Prince Edward county is right across the road. Dont miss out on this B&B! Kevin

The hosts of this B&B define the word 'accommodating'. They not only helped us set up daily trip itineraries, they knew all the restaurant folks and would get us preferred seating. Their meals were superb - all the muffins fresh daily (a different kind each day), ditto the breakfast main dishes. Rooms were pristine, restful and private. The property is expertly kept and offers a great view of the water. Other guests must pick up the same welcoming vibe - our breakfast conversations were fun, lively and a great set up to the day.
