We loved our stay at the Claramount! The Inn and grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and did not disappoint. They have done a wonderful job in changing this home into an Inn while maintaining it's original grace. We stayed in room 1. It is well appointed and quite large. You can hear footsteps above but we did not find it intrusive; it just added to the character of the Inn. There is a lovely patio outside the side door and it is cordoned off so you don't have other guests passing through.Another nice feature of this room is that you can go out the side door of the room to access the pool and hot tub. The bed was a little uncomfortable; I think the additional pad over the mattress could use a remake. The room could have also used a couple of coasters; we did not want to put drinks down on the bedside furniture. The bevelled glass is beautiful and the wonderful light flooding into the room highlights it but also shows that it could do with a cleaning. None of this detracted from an overall wonderful experience.
We had breakfast and a dinner at the Inn and the food and service was excellent.
We enjoyed strolling around Picton. It has a Niagara on the Lake feel without the commercialism.
This is a great place to come if you want to just kick back and relax. We hope to come back again to do some bike riding in the area.
We would definitely not hesitate in staying at the Claramount again. I would ,however, stay in a different room; not because I didn't love Room #1 but because I'd just like to experience another part of the Inn - maybe an upper room with a water view! I would have loved to seen this place when it was a private home.
