Away in the County
Away in the County Bed and Breakfast is situated on the tranquil shores of East Lake in the village of Cherry Valley. This unique Prince Edward County retreat has been creatively renovated by its owners, Susan and Glen Wallis to accommodate guests who want to get “away” from it all.
With a décor of elegant simplicity, the spacious guest rooms have well-appointed private baths and stunning views of East Lake and the B&B’s gardens. Guests are encouraged to linger on the expansive marble terrace or wander through the gardens to the patio by the lake where they may catch sight of a swan gliding by or take time to read a book or magazine from the library’s extensive collection.
Mornings are a “field to fork” affair with Glen cooking up scrumptious breakfasts using only fresh ingredients from the Away gardens, local farms, bakeries and jam makers before guests depart to explore the charm of Prince Edward County. Wineries, farm markets, shops, and art galleries, including Susan’s Melt studio, are nearby attractions. Away is a mere 10 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park, 12 minutes to the shopping village of Bloomfield and less than 10 minutes to restaurants, shops and the heritage Regent Theatre in the town of Picton.
While there is free WI-FI for those who have a need to stay connected, the serenity of Away is unbroken by televisions in guest rooms or the common areas. Away is the perfect destination for those who want to spend time in a gentle environment, exploring the countryside at their leisure.
Away offers the most beautiful sunsets in Prince Edward County at no extra charge.
Away is not suitable for children, we are set up to provide an adult get-away for all our guests. Oscar, the friendly Bassett Hound, supervises the property. Otherwise Away is pet-free. Arrangements for guests’ pets can be made at an excellent pet boarding facility within a five minute drive.
