The County

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

Visitors to the County, Ontario's newest wine region, will find a vast array of recreational activities such as scuba diving, boating, fishing, cycling, hiking, golfing and horseback riding.

Conservation areas and Provincial parks provide excellent opportunities to explore the scenic beauty of our island community. Outstanding beachs, nature trails and one of the northeast's significant bird and birding areas as recognozed by Birdlife International, are wonderful diversions.
