We luckily came upon this property on a last-minute google search and was happy to book on someones cancellation. Once booked, a welcome package email was sent to us including a little questionnaire used to personalize our stay and a list of recommendations to visit while in PEC. Enough time to prepare our itinerary.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Nancy and her resident chickens who happily roam freely on the property. A tour of the property just highlighted the type of restful 2 night escape that we were looking for. A rustic barn with table, chairs and lighting to enjoy a platter of prepared oysters alongside our own prepared charcuterie board and glass of wine while you look out into the fields, a newly built sauna and cooling bath/shower completely private at night, a warm fire pit lit every night, and an old, well-loved farmhouse filled with a blend of new and antique pieces. Charming.
Our room was clean and nicely furnished with all the amenities Little special surprises included Bluetooth bedside speakers and a little Polaroid camera that you are encouraged to borrow during your travels in the county.
Breakfasts prepared by chef Frank and Nancy were amazing! Let me just clarify... this is not a bed and breakfast...it is a fine dining restaurant that you can sleep at!!! Dont expect bacon and eggs! Expect multiple courses of internationally inspired foods to tickle the taste buds!
There is an onsite boutique shop with homemade and locally sourced products. Many of these were showcased in their breakfast preps to try.
Overall wonderful stay with wonderful people! Beautiful hospitality!

Thank you for taking the time to write this lengthy review and being so generous with your rating! We have to say, this is the best tagline we've ever heard about our place! We remember you saying this at breakfast and we've been chuckling about it ever since "This is not a Bed & Breakfast, this is a restaurant you sleep in!" Just love it! Loved hosting you and chatting it up, hope we'll be able to do it all again soon.

Oh my, its hard to find the words to say how much I loved staying here. I booked a getaway off season (Feb) by myself and wanted some peace and downtime. I could not have made a better choice. Frank and Nancy were so kind, attentive, and welcoming, yet it was so relaxed that I could chill in pj's in the private sitting room and feel totally relaxed doing so. As has been said, the food is i.n.c.r.e.d.i.b.l.e!!!! I couldn't believe the quality and quantity of food at breakfast, beautifully tailored to your personal taste. Everything about my stay was perfect, and had obviously been carefully considered, I shall be coming back again for sure....just how soon can I wangle it?

If you’re looking for peace and quiet, great food to start the day, comfort, incredible hosts and a country feel, look no further the The Wilfrid Boutique.
This was our first stay at The Wilfrid and we won’t stay anywhere else from now on!
The breakfast each morning was something you’d see served at a 5 star restaurant, lots of different options, each cooked with love and presented in such an art form, you’ll hesitate to touch it.
Frank & Nancy are the perfect hosts, but watch out for Franks quick and dry wit.
We stayed in the green room, it was clean, aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable.
The ambiance of the whole farmhouse, from the cute chickens running around to decor, will help relieve any stress you may have developed through these unusual times.
No light pollution here, our first night was under an incredible star studded sky.
We’ll be back soon!

We'd like to start off by apologizing for our delayed response. We have been playing catch up with summer now that fall has arrived and things are quieting down slightly. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this very generous review and share your experience. We are always flattered when guests say they have found their spot in The County and will be coming back to The Wilfrid! We look forward to hosting you again and will try to keep up the quick and dry wit ;)

My wife and I had spent two nights at this upmarket bed and breakfast five years ago and always wanted to come back. We finally managed to do so this past weekend and it was a lovely stay. We were once again in the two-room suite which allowed us to spread out. This B and B really is out in the country side (you will ideally need a car) and for me it was blissful to wake up at 2 am and hear absolutely nothing. The breakfasts are large (often running to five or more different elements) and tremendously imaginative, involving local meats and fruit and vegetables and herbs. As well as being an excellent cook, Frank can also give advice on which vineyards to visit. The restaurants he and Nancy recommended were good (and sometimes better) and the local cab service was 100% reliable. There is a sauna and a fire pit to help keep you warm on late summer evenings. All in all, absolutely somewhere to spend a couple of relaxing days.

Perfect Hygge topped with an incredible gastronomic experience! We will be back!

If you've never heard of hygge, look it up, or simply book a stay here.

Frank and Nancy have exceeded our expectations. We have traveled the world and this is truly a 5 star experience. Thanks for making our stay so welcome and sharing your love for food and great life with us. The breakfast will go down in our memory book. Lovely property with beautiful trails, wineries within walking distance, great sauna and lovely fire to end the evening, while sipping on some wine. The rooms are all fantastic with their own bathrooms and they have put a lot of love and thought into every little detail.

Go out for dinner in town or have a picnic in the barn (or outdoors) with some local cheeses, meats and goodies.

You will not regret this retreat. Happy travels!

This is the type of BnB everyone talks about quitting their job and creating but none of us do. Fortunately for us Nancy and Frank have done it. The best breakfast we have ever had and a location having the 3 of the best wineries in the country within a few kilometres. The sauna is the icing on the cake. Book it without hesitation. It’s everything you want it to be and more.

A Prince Edward County B&B gem- the pastoral passion project of owners Nancy and Frank with a penchant for excellence in hosting… comfortable, quiet, convivial, bucolic- an antidote for all things busy city. … and then there’s the breakfast! Five senses are not enough to describe their food artistry, fresh and local, every bite a memory maker. Did I mention it takes two hours?

We recently stayed at the Wilfrid in the two-bedroom suite. My goal is to provide an objective review that highlights the pros and cons of staying here.

Pros:

-Outstanding breakfast served both days. An abundance of delicious fresh food.

-Interior of home very clean, rooms, kitchen, and common space.

-Free roaming chickens are a cute touch.

Cons:

-No air conditioning in second bedroom, only a small portable AC unit in the other room which was not enough to cool the suite especially in the summer. The rooms were uncomfortably hot, especially when you are paying over $1200 to stay in basically a sauna. The second bedroom had two small portable fans, which when turned on sounded like you were sleeping next to an airplane.

-Screens in the bathroom and second bedroom were torn, allowing for insects to enter the room. I woke up to a cricket on my bedside table one morning. Since there was no fans or AC in the bathroom, it was a breeding ground for insects who are attracted to moisturize. Also, the lack of ventilation made it extremely hot and uncomfortable. Towels smelled of mildew.

-Seating around the fire pit is covered in dirty burlap sack and faces the road which really does not lend itself to a peaceful experience.

-Seating in the barn needs some love. I understand it is an old barn and that it can be dusty and so forth. However, if guests are interested in spending time around the table, the owners should offer to clean and wipe down the chairs, table and hose the floor from chicken feces before use. Instead we were directed to use a cloth located in the barn to wipe the area ourselves. It would be a nice touch to give the owners a 30 minute or so heads up so they can clean and prepare the area.

-Do not waste your money on the sauna experience, especially if you are visiting in the summer. Just book the room we stayed in and you will get the sauna experience for free (no AC in room). The change room and the sauna looked clean, the cold-water pool was less than desirable with critters floating around. Also, if you book the experience ahead of time, it will not be refundable. If you are interested, just book and pay once you are staying there.

-Ahead of your stay, they send you a survey to fill out which is extensive. It’s fun and cheeky, however in the end it was a waste of time because none of the asks/information was taken into account. Just your breakfast time slot was noted.

-There is an onsite barn gym, which costs $10/pp, I don’t understand why you have to pay to use a dusty old barn that has a couple of yoga mats and a boxing bag. Just included in the price of the room.

-Hospitality, basically non-existent from the owners Frank and Nancy. When we arrived, Nancy didn’t even say hello, we had to go out of our way to greet her. To be honest, it was just strange given that they are in this industry.

Good to know:

-We used The Taxi Guy for transportation services, they are amazing so kind and punctual. To give you an idea of what we paid:

-one way trip to Picton $25
-one way trip to Bloomfield $45

In summary, save your money this place is overpriced for what it is. The photos are misleading, and I just personally believe that it is unacceptable to stay here for over $1200 and not have AC in the middle of a heat wave.

Beautiful comfy rooms tastefully appointed and the hosts made us feel so so welcome, nothing was an issue for them. Highly recommended. We had two breakfasts and the food was deliciously prepared and served really nicely. Portions were hearty and set us up for the day of exploring PEC. You can even buy some of their delicious eggs to take home!

Having only briefly "passed through" PE County on a previous trip, we decided the area was due for a more thorough visit. My wife found this property online and was attracted to the idea of a two bedroom suite, as we were traveling with another couple. The restored farmhouse is nothing short of amazing. Very thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and the manner in which Frank and Nancy have transitioned old and new so seamlessly is ingenious on many levels. Speaking of our hosts, and despite a magnificent property and breakfasts that were quite simply beyond anything we've ever experienced at a B&B, they were the true highlights of our visit. Nancy is a talented artist, and her jaw-dropping work may be found throughout the house. Frank is the displaced restaurateur (Montreal) and they fell in love with the area before starting up the Farm a few years back. Our two bedroom suite was located on the second floor, and could be accessed by two separate sets of stairs. Our bed was large and comfy and the room featured a generous sitting area, TV and ceiling fan. The other room was a little smaller, also had a TV and both rooms provided separate access to a a lovely shared bathroom, complete with a great, very large shower. Attention to detail was everywhere, from the fridge in the hallway, the conveniently placed wine and water glasses, an outdoor sauna, to the Polaroid(!)-style cameras provided in each room to capture memories of our stay and leave one behind on the guestbook-style photo array located outside our bedroom. The evenings are very quiet, but on both nights we took advantage of the offer to sit around the firepit, very comfortable on deck-style furniture, meeting and trading experiences with other guests and our hosts. Frank and Nancy are perfect hosts, intuitively sensing when and how much to engage. They could not have been more fun to chat with and their recommendations and knowledge of the area ensured we made the best of our two days. And OMG, the breakfasts!!! So beautifully presented and with something for everyone...there must have been 20+ items to choose from, all made from scratch with love in the nearby kitchen...breads, preserves, fresh eggs (take care not to take out any chickens on your way onto the property!), fresh fruit, granola, maple syrup...it was an amazing, unforgettable gastronomic adventure. Forget the prospect of lunch. Seriously. We can't wait to return to Prince Edward County and to the best B&B owners we've ever come across. Cannot recommend more highly.
