An all-purpose getaway
Prince Edward County is Ontario’s emerging wine destination. It is a mere 2.5 hour drive from the GTA, and not far from Ottawa and Montreal. Aside from being an attractive destination for oenophiles, the area has developed an impressive culinary reputation. Executive chef Luis de Sousa has helped build that reputation for over a decade, as head of the Wearing House culinary team. The Waring House offers fine dining in Amelia’s restaurant and causal fare and live entertainment in the Barley Room Pub as well as other inn attractions including a recreational cookery school, an amenity spa, and two featured artists in residence.
Refined rustic accommodations
Your stay will be in a suite offering luxurious surroundings. The focal point of the inn is The Waring House, a fine stone farmhouse, parts of which date back to the 1820s. The farmstead provides the heritage context for the inn, but the entire property is forward looking and environmentally friendly. All suites at The Waring House are furnished with an eclectic array of distinctly Canadian folk art and antiques, infusing your room with a signature charm and authenticity that's both fascinating and pleasing to the eye. Enhance your sense of relaxation at The Garden Spa, where a full range of services are at your beck and call from manicures, to make up application and more.
You'll be far from hungry
The Waring House will make sure you're well fed. Tuck into breakfast at Amelia’s Garden restaurant. Regional cuisine and slow-food are the culinary philosophies of executive chef Luis De Sousa. With its long and venerable agricultural history, the county boasts, exceptional market gardens, orchards, specialty meats, fish, maple syrup, honey, garlic, a cheese factory, one of North America's largest mushroom farms, organic foods, ice cream producers, a cidery, some exceptional wineries and great micro-brewery beer. Chef de Sousa sources the finest local ingredients year round, which you'll be able to learn more about in your own included Cookery School class.
A palette that pleases the eye
Your visual tastes will be tantalized as well, with the intricate carvings of Robert Danielis at the Folkworks Gallery, containing instances of wry, witty humour often reminiscent of Monty Python. Peruse the skillful brushstrokes of Aidan Haley at his studio, where you'll find intricate and detailed oils immortalizing the Canadian landscape in bright, vivacious colours.
