A PLACE OF TRANQUILITY, CREATIVITY, HOSPITALITY AND FUN!

“With fresh air, panoramic views and a vineyard or organic farm around every corner, Ontario’s picturesque Prince Edward County is the perfect spot for a (hedonistic) fall road trip.”

Prince Edward County is a picturesque island 2 ½ hours east of Toronto. Once a quaint, insular pocket of tourists, folks and farmland, it has more recently become a destination for food and wine lovers, art enthusiasts and sun worshipers. As one of Prince Edward County’s premier accommodations, The Merrill Inn delivers personalized service and will go the extra mile to ensure that your vacation in The County is memorable. We know you will want to come back! There’s never a shortage of events at every time of the year. Our friendly staff will be glad to fill you in on what’s happening.

The Merrill Inn is located in the heart of Picton and is within walking distance of specialty and antique shops, restaurants, the historic Regent Theatre, and picturesque Picton harbour.

Prince Edward County is Ontario’s newest wine region, where will find more than 45 wineries, 10 microbreweries, and a vast array of recreational activities such as scuba diving, boating, fishing, cycling, hiking, golfing and horseback riding — and let’s not forget Sandbanks Provincial Park and its beautiful white sand beaches and dunes!

Conservation areas and Provincial parks provide excellent opportunities to explore the scenic beauty of our island community. Outstanding beaches, nature trails and significant bird and birding areas (recognized by Birdlife International), are all popular diversions in Prince Edward County.
