I never stayed at a b&b before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but our stay blew us out of the water! It was the most perfect mini getaway to visit PEC. The rooms are cozy, the food was great, and the innkeepers were amazing! It’s situated just off a busy road, so it was very tranquil and relaxing, and just steps away to restaurants, bars and shops. This will definitely be our preferred place to stay anytime we go back to PEC.
My fiancé and I just visited The Manse for the second time and were once again blown away by the great facilities, the hospitality from Kathleen and Chris, and the wonderful food. The place is immaculately kept and in a very central location, close to a bunch of great restaurants. The pool, hot tub, waterfall and koi pond on the grounds really lend to a wonderful ambience. I can’t recommend The Manse enough. Thank you Chris and Kathleen!
Just home from a 3 night stay at this delightful gem, it is by far the most enjoyable BnB we have experienced. From the minute we arrived until our departure the hosts aimed to provide an enjoyable stay. The rooms are tastefully decorated, comfortable bed, quality bedding, luxurious towels & an awesome shower. We stayed ont the 2nd level & were only a few steps from an spacious outdoor deck overlooking the pool & hot tub. Had it been a little cooler weather we could have ejnjoyed a gas fire pit on the lawn. The main level had a pleasant parlour but to be frank it was way too pleasant weather outside to spend any time indoors. There are no refrigerators int he room but there is a pantry on the main level with a generous supply of ice, tea & coffee and a wine fridge for your…
We were blown away by just about everything The Manse had to offer. Hospitality... amazing. Food... better than some of the finest restaurants I’ve been to. The room... super clean, cozy, and easy to sleep in. This was a perfect (and I mean PERFECT) getaway spot. Any cons? It’s a bit difficult to reach via car, given the awkward 5-way intersection and the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it road you have to turn in to get there. That was really it. Thanks again, Chris & Kathleen for the fantastic experience. Chris... we followed your instructions and made some of your food. So good.
We had a wonderful weekend stay at Manse. Very covid safe, super relaxing, delicious food, great location, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent masseuse in spa and Kathleen and Chris were wonderful and ensured we had a fabulous stay. I didn’t want to leave! Can’t wait to go back again soon.
We spent our anniversary weekend at the Inn and were extremely satisfied with everything. It helped that the weather was spectacular too! Innkeepers Kathleen and Chef Chris offer a casual-friendly style that makes you feel welcome, without any pretense. Every meal (all from scratch with local ingredients) was terrific. We tried all of the breakfast options, and each one was great. The BBQ on Friday night featured Ribs, which my friend described as "the best ever". We also tried the 4 course dinner on Sunday night with the wine pairing. Every single plate was wonderful, and the wine paired perfectly. I've already recommended this place to everyone I've spoken too. Although I may regret that, as it's tough to get a reservation. Thanks Kathleen & Chris!
It is difficult - and it can be scary - travelling during these times of Covid-19 with having to wear masks inside all of the time, use the sanitizer wherever we go, and being sure to social distance. Our innkeepers, Kathleen and Christopher, helped us with this throughout our stay at The Manse Inn – making sure that everyone followed safe practices. The Inn was immaculate and our “new norms” did not deter us from experiencing a wonderful three-night stay. The century-old building has been beautifully restored, and is tastefully decorated - with beautiful wood floors and plants scattered throughout. Our room was cozy, comfortable, and quiet. There is a small “butler’s pantry” that offers a selection of cold beverages, tea, and coffee, and an assortment of mini snacks for…
We were really excited to stay here! Upon our arrival we were met with an unwelcoming greeting from the hosts! Throughout the stay we felt at times like we were inconveniencing the hosts and they were not warm and friendly... like what you would expect from a small BnB! The property itself is exceptional, and offers all you would want in a wonderful getaway spot, located conveniently to the downtown core of Picton. We experienced the wonderful meals here as the chef makes everything and I mean everything from scratch! Taste is a 10+ but our main course was COLD with exception of the sides! Likely will not stay here again but will try another location!
I stayed 2 nights at The Mance this week.Kathleen and Chris were wonderful hosts. Service was exceptional , my room was very comfortable, location is central Picton,making everything within walking distance. The outdoor salt water pool and hot tub are beautiful. My breakfast in the morning was delicious !! Overall my stay was excellent!
The Manse is an extremely nice place. Kathleen and Chris are excellent hosts along with their dog Baxter. They greeted us with a cold summer drink. While Chris took our luggage to the room, Kathleen showed us the beautiful garden. We then had a tour of the house. She explained all the protocol in regard to Covid. The rooms are very nice with all the amenities you would require. We had a four course dinner there to celebrate our anniversary. Chris is an excellent chef. The breakfasts are delicious as well. We had our meals outside by the fountain and pond. Kathleen was always helpful when we needed information regarding the wineries, restaurants, etc. I had a facial with Natalie at the spa. What a treat. We are already planning another visit in 2021.
