Description

Away in the County is situated on the tranquil shores of East Lake in the village of Cherry Valley. Recently featured on HGTV, this unique Prince Edward County retreat has been creatively renovated by its owners, Susan and Glen Wallis to accommodate guests who want to get “away” from it all. 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms sleeping 8 adults, 4 kids (age 9 and under) + (as per new Prince Edward County bylaws, to be discussed per booking).

With a décor of elegant simplicity, the spacious guest rooms have well-appointed private baths and stunning views of East Lake and the gardens. Guests are encouraged to linger on the expansive marble terrace or wander through the gardens to the patio by the lake where they may catch sight of a swan gliding by or take time to read a book or magazine from the library’s extensive collection.

Wineries, farm markets, shops, and art galleries are nearby attractions. Away is a mere 10 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Sandbanks Provincial Park, 12 minutes to the shopping village of Bloomfield and less than 10 minutes to restaurants, shops and the heritage Regent Theatre in the town of Picton.

Beautiful and relaxing escape: We stayed for 2 nights in the Gardener's Room. It was such a relaxing and pleasant stay. Susan and Glen are very warm and welcoming and they do such an amazing job. The property is beautiful, and the view was incredible. You could see the lake and enjoy the sunset from our room, or from a shared little balcony out the back upstairs part of the house. The house was covered in Glen and Susan's artwork as well which was also very beautiful!!! Glen and Susan gave you lots of ideas and information about Prince Edward County, and what to go see and do. We had a very pleasant stay, and I have already recommended it to anyone who wishes to visit PEC.

Susan and Glen have an absolutely stunning property and have obviously taken the time to create a beautifully welcoming home for their visitors. Their attention to detail throughout the house (inside and out) is amazing. Outside of the gorgeousness of their home and the surrounding property their hospitality matched it wonderfully. We will definitely be looking to stay with them again should they have availability! And we will absolutely recommend them!! Thanks for making our weekend away so perfect! xo

We came here for a few days after our wedding, it was absolutely beautiful, very tranquil and relaxing..exactly what we needed. It is in a great location, a short drive to many amazing restaurants/wineries, and Susan and Glen are the most amazing hosts, giving us great recommendations and itinerary ideas..we can't wait to return!!
