The cat came with the manse (a mini vacation recap)

This week I had the pleasure of staying at The Manse Boutique Inn in Picton, Ontario.

I was up in Prince Edward County for a photography course. I have whole-heartedly fallen in love with a region of my province I’ve never visited before.

Trust me – I’ll be back.

The Manse was the perfect setting for a brief mid-week vacation. The style and feel of the place (I call it a streamlined traditional look) was exactly right – not fussy and formal, but also not too minimalistic and modern. I enjoyed the pool and gorgeous patio. My brother (who came along for the road trip) enjoyed the cat-in-residence and the hot tub.

The innkeeper and chef were the icing on the cake. Married couple Kathleen and Chris are the perfect hosts. I’m dying to get back for a night and enjoy one of Chris’s private dinners by the koi pond.

Crystal accents brightened the space.

The Manse was decorated in a combination of my favourite colours: purple and grey.

The bedrooms were modern and glamourous.
