OUR STORY – THE TRUE ONE!

Once upon a time…
(in the 1980’s)

… two Hotel Management grads from Ryerson University (then Ryerson Polytechnical Institute) met while employed for Delta Hotels at the Chelsea Inn in Toronto. Amy and Edward Shubert had worked their way up the corporate ladder learning how to run a major hotel. They shared a goal and a dream of one day owning a County Inn. While in Toronto, Amy worked with Chef Michael Sullivan at the Roof restaurant at the Park Plaza Hotel and Edward worked with (now Merrill Inn chef) Michael Sullivan at Matisse Restaurant, Hotel Plaza II. Amy and Edward spent the next 6 years in Florida where Edward managed hotels in Tampa Bay, Orlando and Boca Raton. After the birth of their son Nathan (who was born in Clearwater), Amy launched Shubert Hospitality Consultants in Boca Raton. In 2002, they returned to Ontario to pursue their dream as Innkeepers, and purchased the Merrill inn in Picton. Michael Sullivan joined them in 2004, and has made a name for himself at the Merrill Inn. Patricia Bell (County born and raised) worked at the Inn throughout high school and university but left in 2008 to further hone her hospitality skills. Patricia rejoined the Inn in the fall of 2016 as Assistant Innkeeper. With her many ties to the PEC tourism industry, she acts as our County Coneriege officianado. When she isn’t at the Inn, you can find her helping her husband at their Texas BBQ inspired food truck located at Barley Days brewery.

The rest is history…
