Bluebird lived up to every expectation! We were 2 couples with 3 kids under 3. Loved the open concept main floor as it gave kids the space to play and run around (indoors) as well as their well equipped backyard that had a fire pit (which we used for smores), bbq, badminton (including a net) and a wagon to wheel around the kiddos to nearby stores. Loved the personalized snacks upon arrival and the baskets of things we forgot in each bathroom. The provincial park passes were super helpful as it cut our wait time drastically when we went to Sandbanks on a Saturday as well as a Sunday. In addition, they also provide a beach chair and umbrella which came in handy as we spent most of the day at the beach. I would definitely recommend the Bluebird to anyone in a heartbeat!

Fantastic house for a vacation in PEC. The house was exactly as represented in the photos - the main floor was actually bigger than expected. The house was spotless and had everything we needed. The owners obviously put time and care into the place.

We had a wonderful stay! This is our fifth summer in the county and this was one of our favourite properties to date. Favourite features? Too many to mention! Location, modern decor, cleanliness, comfortable linens (under rated feature) thoughtful gift basket, efficient layout, great deck and yard. Enough seating for all of us to have a meal together. Truly felt like a home away from home.

This place was clean, beautiful, and elegant. It had board games and a playstation 4. Lots of games to play with friends or family and enjoy your stay. The best part was the backyard, the gas firepit with lights along the trees to give the aesthetic vibe. Its close to tim hortons and all other retailers. They provide bikes which is good to take a ride around town. Place was very clean and the look of the house gave a very cozy feeling. Very happy with the place.

Stayed here for a girls weekend in the county! Bluebird was in the perfect location, right in town in Picton and walking distance to the LCBO, metro and local restaurants. Hosts were super welcoming, accommodating early check-in and had an adorable welcome basket! The place was beautifully decorated and CLEAN! Beds were very comfortable and set up with extra blankets and pillows. We will back back- thanks again :)

Extremely clean and well situated house, close to grocery store, shops, restaurants and bike or hiking trails. Parking at the home or nearby if multiple guest. The house is well equipped for dinning in, relaxing around a beautiful dinning table or on the patio in a large private back yard! We will definitely be back again!

This is a beautiful property! Everyone in our group agreed that this was the best home we'd ever rented! Much attention to detail has been given to the decorations, the furniture and the small appliances. The very well garnished basket of snacks as well as the available collection of toiletries were much appreciated by all! The welcome binder had clear instructions in both English and French; everything was neatly labelled, and bilingually. To someone who values organization, this was an absolute dream!

Our stay at Bluebird was excellent. The beds were comfortable, the furniture all worked and we especially enjoyed the table and chairs on the deck for early morning coffee. The house was incredibly clean and well appointed. The extra amenities in the kitchen and the bathrooms were unexpected and much appreciated. It was a perfect place for our little 5 member reunion as was our enjoyment of "the county"

Staying at the Bluebird was incredible. Not only was the location perfect but there was more than enough space to accommodate for everyone (6 Adults). We can't say enough great things about the Bluebird. Little surprises like extra bathroom amenities, backyard games, and late night treats made us feel like the Bluebird was our little home away from home. We'll absolutely be back to stay!
