With only a 2.5 hour drive from the city, you can immerse yourself in a gorgeous getaway full of history, luxury, and charm. The Merrill House, located in Picton, Ontario, was built way back in 1878. It’s rich, Victorian design takes your run-of-the-mill weekend stay and ramps it up a notch. Or about twelve notches. Seriously, this place is amazing. There are so many stellar aspects of the spot to explore.
So let’s go ahead and get right to it!
The Merrill House is located in the scenic Prince Edward County. This area is known as one of the most beautiful small towns in the province. With the sprawling wine country and nearby beaches at your fingertips, there’s no shortage of activities to explore.
But let’s stick with the house for now. Along with being a hotel, The Merrill House also boasts a beautiful restaurant and expansive wine cellar. Hey – given their location, a massive wine cellar is no surprise. The restaurant features delicious French cuisine crafted by Head Chef Michael Sullivan. Mmmm, sounds scrumptious, doesn’t it?
Each of the 14 rooms and suites has its own unique design. Every piece of decor has a story, which the staff of The Merrill House will happily elaborate on during your stay. The gorgeous blend of antiques, artifacts, and contemporary art give every corner of the hotel a certain charm you won’t find anywhere else.
As if being this beautiful weren’t enough, the spot also has a ton of incredible amenities to make your stay even better. There’s a bar, sauna, virtual reality lounge, drawing room, study, sculpture and photography gallery, multiple fireplaces, and incredible gardens to explore. Plus, each room comes with an iPad, a smart television with Alexa, a minibar, and even a small library! If all that doesn’t scream luxury, we don’t know what does.
Of course, the spot has one more thing that makes it even better. When you stay at The Merrill House, you’re also giving back to those in need. How, you ask? Well, because the owners are also founders of the Venezuela Educational & Medical Supply Relief, a portion of all proceeds gets donated to this incredible cause. There’s seriously no downside to this spot, you guys.
So book your stay and indulge in all that this incredible location has to offer. But do so quickly! We’ve got a feeling a stay this incredible is going to sell out fast!
