A few years ago I stayed at the Waring House Inn located at the edge of Picton for work. At the time I thought 'I bet Paul would really enjoy staying here,' but it never happened. When we decided to spent last weekend in Prince Edward County at the last minute I contacted them to see what the price would be. I was told that the rooms were $128 for Friday and $99 for Saturday - including breakfast - I immediately made the reservations!

Beautifully situated at the heart of one of Ontario's most interesting regions, the Waring House has stood sentinel at Warings Corners since about 1860. Meticulously restored and renovated, the inn offers seventeen charming antique-appointed guest rooms. An additional 32 more modern rooms were recently added.

Amelia's Garden dining room and the cozy Barley Room serve exceptional regional cuisine (the Barley room also featured a wonderful folk duo on friday night). A hands-on, recreational Cookery School, elegant Banquet/Conference Hall and lovely park-like setting make the Waring House an all-season destination.

We stayed in the deluxe rooms - the newer ones. I have to say that I was shocked by how large the room was and how wonderfully appointed it was. A room like this in Toronto would likely go for upwards of $600 a night!

Our room featured a small sitting area and a fireplace.

The King bed was one of the most comfortable beds I had ever slept in . . . so comfortable that I`d like the same bed here at home!

The bathroom featured huge, soft cotton towels, amazing toiletries, a giant soaker tub. It was such a large space that it would have dwarfed our Master Bedroom ensuite at home!

Some of the other features we appreciated - the art throughout the Inn was all hand done by local artists - no `hotel art` here. The staff were friendly - on Saturday when we were in Picton a car stopped at the crosswalk and the drive waved wildly at us - it was the server from breakfast.

If you`re in the area this would be a great spot to lay your head!
