As a special surprise for my granddaughter's 25th I took her and her mother to Merrill House. After extensive research on where to stay in Price Edward County I zeroed in on this amazing property. I was not disappointed. The place is AMAZING! The service was AMAZING! The restaurant was AMAZING! The hotel is beautifully decorated with a very eclectic vibe. One wants to search every nook and cranny to discover the beautiful pieces that have been lovingly collected and displayed so perfectly. We were treated royally and even had our breakfast served in front of a roaring fire in the living room. We did not want to leave! I highly recommend this stunning property!

This is a magical place! I don’t know whether a hotel stay could be any better than this! Starting from a great cordial staff and ending with creative and tasteful decor. My friend and I felt like we are on cloud nine. The breakfast was decadent!

Upon arrival, We were immediately offered a complimentary room upgrade. We ended up in a very nice room with a fireplace. We had reserved for dinner that evening and enjoyed an excellent meal and excellent service. Breakfasts were also very good and during the week in October, the dining area was quiet. Prices at hotels and inns seem to have skyrocketed in the past few years, and Merril House is no exception, but we were well looked after and had a wonderful couple of days there. Highly recommended!

We had the amazing opportunity to stay at Merrill House last weekend. We stayed in the Owner’s bedroom and were captivated by the art collection and its stunning decoration. Breakfast was included and believe me: I had the best omelette and parfait ever! The most important aspect is how kind the staff was, making us feel very special during each service. Dinner was just exquisite!! The wine cellar is warm and very modern with good music in the background. I don’t have enough words to express my feelings about my stay there. Merrill House offers many beautiful places inside the home to read a book or just walk around - plus the sauna spot – making this place a pretty and quiet one. The fireplace room was another of my favourite places to be which is filled with art and fashion books, antiques, and paintings. The owners Jordan and Evert have an exquisite taste for every detail in each room. Don't miss the books they created, illustrated with so much imagination and creativity. Love it so much!

We had a wonderful 3 day stay at Merrill House. Our room was bright and cheerful, the bed was comfortable and the staff were all very accommodating. The breakfast served each morning was delicious and very filling. In the afternoon we would sit in the front sitting room in front of the fire and chat with other guests. Highly recommend.

The Merrill House is a good option if you are looking for an old fashioned Inn type experience. The common areas are great. The rooms are a little tiny. Nice bathrooms, great breakfast included. Attentive staff.

We decided on a midweek vacation in Prince Edward County and after checking out our options we decided to go with the Merrill House in Picton. Very charming house with all the modern amenities in our room including: Dyson hair dryer, towel warmer, Nespresso coffee maker. We were in Room 107 and the bathroom is absolutely stunning. Breakfast service was delicious - so many options and delicious to boot. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. I would totally stay here again. Very thoughtful details in the room also include silk and Terry robes. Such a nice place to come back to after a day of wandering in the county.
