Our party of six (family) stayed at the Avanti B&B from July 21st to the 23rd and had an AMAZING experience thanks to Leda and Frank's great hospitality skills, starting with Frank's delicious homemade cookies as a nice welcome treat! The house was beautiful, spacious and very clean/well-maintained, and its waterfront location made for great morning views while enjoying our delicious, copious and beautifully presented breakfast (they even had gluten-free options available). The rooms/beds were comfortable with useful amenities in each one of the washrooms (hairdryer, shampoo/conditioner, and body wash). For some family members, this was their very first experience in a B&B, and everyone truly enjoyed their experience! Frank and Leda also know the area pretty well and were therefore able to make recommendations on places to visit, where to eat, etc., which was quite practical. I honestly cannot recommend the Avanti B&B enough; this place and their hosts check all the boxes and then some! Thanks again for a wonderful stay Leda and Frank! : )

What a wonderful experience, we stayed for 4 days with another couple. This B&B is second to none. The host's Leda and Frank opened their home and made us feel like family. Their home is absolutely stunning, with incredible views of the water from the large windows in the bedrooms and the beautiful deck overlooking the backyard area. The breakfast was an amazing variety of fruits, Phyllo breakfast cups, muffins, croissant, frittatas, jams all homemade. Leda provided us with a map of the area which she had marked up with wineries and other interesting things to visit. Frank made homemade cookies which were waiting for us each evening upon our return. My wife and I will definitely be going back and intend on making this an annual place to stay at.
Thanks again Leda and Frank for the wonderful time.

We had a wonderful time at Avanti B&B. The rave reviews are well-deserved. Leda and Frank are superb hosts and they made us feel very welcome in their beautiful home. Our room (the Green Room) was very comfortable and the grounds (complete with wild turkeys!) are lovely. Leda provided us with information on places of interest in the County, restaurants, etc. which was very helpful and we loved relaxing in the Muskoka chairs down by the water after our outings. We have stayed in many B&Bs and Avanti gets top marks for the high standard of the accommodation, fabulous location and the warmth of the hosts. Highly recommended.

Over the past 25 years my wife and I have been to many Bed & Breakfast locations in North America, and in our opinion, Avanti is one of the very best. Leda and Frank are fabulous hosts who not only serve great breakfasts but are very knowledgeable about Prince Edward County. It doesn’t matter if you are interested in distilleries, wineries, craft breweries, restaurants, artists, galleries, beaches, hiking and biking trails, or just chilling out, Frank and Leda will answer your questions and point you in the right direction. Frank, who has competed in Ironman Triathlons, is also an accomplished baker who makes the best French toast in Christendom with home-baked Challah bread. Yum! If you just want to chill, they have a spacious, home with beautifully appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, and a porch overlooking Lake Ontario. You can also relax in the Muskoka chairs on the patio near the water’s edge (which has a firepit) and check out the moving scenery, otters, blue herons, sailboats, and much more. Like us, most of their guests are repeat customers. I highly recommend giving Leda and Frank a call – you may become a regular as well..!

Avanti BnB is definitely first class in BnBs. Frank and Leda were outstanding hosts welcoming us and kindly guiding us in restaurant picks and what to do and where to go. Breakfasts were premier with the smell of croissants wafting from the oven plus the presentation with home made preserves and skewered fruit delightful. Egg in phyllo baskets with Frank’s homemade banana bread were delicious. Our room and the house in general were SO clean! The acreage was well manicured and the water view spectacular. We loved that we had our own little jar with Frank’s homemade cookies, and it was this little added touch that makes staying at Avanti’s special. Oh and Frank is funny too!!! We will definitely return when in Ontario.

We visited Avanti for four days as part of our tour of Ontario and Quebec in early July 2023. During my holiday planning I decided that it would be good to visit Prince Edward County as it was located nearly midway between Montreal and Toronto both cities we planned to visit. The County looked interesting with vineyards, lavender fields, orchards and lovely places to eat. Frank and Leda provided clear and accurate information when I corresponded by email both before and after I booked. I immediately had a feeling that this would be a good place to stay. In reality I was absolutely correct. The house is set in a lovely area around 5 mins drive from Picton. It is sizeable and lovely, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The welcome was sincere and helpful. Frank and Leda were lovely hosts and welcomed us into their home so we felt it was ours too for our short stay. The accommodation was perfect for us, a family of father, mother and adult daughter. We had the waterfront suite of red and blue rooms and had the use of the adjacent living and kitchen areas all to ourselves. There was also a private showroom adjacent for our use. Each morning a delicious and delicate breakfast was prepared and served to us. Described by Frank and Leda as unique, it was different to all the others we had in Canada however special and delicious. We never went hungry as Frank seems to have a love of baking which included his cookies of the day which we of course we were happy to consume! Leda was really helpful with touring possibilities throughout the County and further afield, on our way home it allowed us to take the scenic route to Montreal from where we were travelling home. Leda also suggested where to have our various lunches and dinners. Overall perfect hosts.

We really enjoyed Prince Edward County an area not known to me before. I would definitely return to the area, if that opportunity arises I would not go past Avanti B&B for a stay. If you try I am sure you will quickly agree. A definite 5 stars from each of our family. Thank you for looking after us Frank and Leda we were really glad we chose Avanti for our stay.

Leda and Frank are wonderful hosts with a gorgeous home. This was our first time at a bed & breakfast and it was truly a fantastic experience. Leda and Frank are very friendly, welcoming, and helpful! They are more than willing to offer you suggestions for the best places to go to for day trips or eats in Prince Edward County. The location was great as well. It is right on the water and is quite central to PEC which makes it easy for tourists to hit multiple spots in one day. I recommend this B&B for anyone travelling to PEC!

Alida and I were fortunate to spend two nights at Frank and Leda’s B&B recently. Beautiful home and room. Love the views from the deck overlooking the Bay of Quinte. Our hosts made us feel very welcomed, and they were full of information on places to visit and eat in Prince Edward County. We woke up to wonderful smells of breakfast coming from the kitchen every morning. Great way to get us started for the day. Frank’s home made cookies were a very nice touch to finish off the days.
We would definitely recommend the Avanti B&B and hope to return again soon.
Ron and Alida

Where do I start! Leda and Frank are such a wonderful couple. Warm and welcoming, fun and informative. Wish they were my neighbours! They served us beautifully presented gourmet breakfasts while we ate at a table with a gorgeous lake view. Their property is spectacular and situated right on the water. The beautiful deck area and grounds were there for us to enjoy. The house is spotless with gorgeous decor. I had the yellow room with ensuite and my friend had the green room.. Both rooms are lovely with everything you could want. We came away with paint colours that we love and plan to use...lol! My stay was restful and lots of fun. Location to Picton and surrounding area is perfect. So much to see and do! Can't wait to return in the fall! Leda and Frank thank you for a wonderful getaway! See you soon!

As a new visitor to PE County I did not know what to expect. This B&B was clean, spacious and welcoming. The owners were accommodating and the breakfast of hot croissants, jams and fruit was delicious. The view was breathtaking. Situated on a lake it was just the relaxation we needed. The personal touch like homemade cookies on arrival were lovely.
