Our experience at Away was absolutely wonderful. The property is beautiful with many different places to lounge. You can really see that Susan and Glen put a lot of thought in designing and decorating the property. Glen also makes amazing breakfasts, and Susan is a walking textbook of all things PEC. They really are the most gracious hosts we've ever...

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Away in the County - beautiful, peaceful, quiet setting with inviting spots to stroll or sit and to relax either down by the lake, in the Adirondack chairs under the trees on the lawn, on the patio (chairs, couches, tables), in the recliners on the upstairs deck, or swinging in hammocks...

We had an amazing weekend celebrating our 1 year anniversary at Away in the County. Linda and Glen are fabulous hosts, they made incredible breakfasts each morning (apple crisp pancakes, french toast, omelettes and eggs benedict), provided maps and recommendations for the must see places and offered beautiful rooms to stay in. I would highly recommend staying here!

We chose Away B&B as our honeymoon destination and were so thrilled with our stay. The property is something out of a magazine and exactly what we needed after a busy few weeks. The B&B was quiet, clean and the food was amazing. This would be my favourite stay away from home I've ever had. My only advice to couples...

A beautiful place to relax. The rooms were beautifully appointed. The grounds are so nice to walk around and forget about everything, with the only interruption being from Oscar the resident basset hound looking to have some one pat his head.
