Description

Welcome to The Gem! Enjoy the vintage charm of this professionally designed farmhouse, a short 10-minute drive from downtown Picton. Guests at our vacation rentals receive a discount on our guided wine tours and in quiet season we can also arrange a dinner shuttle to your favourite Prince Edward County eatery**

Begin your day with coffee on the front porch or take a stroll down the street to Laura’s Blueberry farm for some local berries. This prime location makes for a perfect home base while you tour wineries or soak up the sun at Sandbanks Provincial Park beaches. After a day of exploring, prepare a wonderful meal in the fully equipped kitchen and dine alfresco in the converted barn with a view. Or when the weather cools down lounge in the den with propane fireplace and vintage music console. Outside on the patio you'll want to relax and unwind in the hot tub--all in the privacy of The Gem’s spacious and lush backyard with firebowl and adirondacks. High quality bath robes are complimentary.

Due to Prince Edward County bylaws, this property sleeps a maximum of 6 guests plus 3 children (age 9 and under).

The Gem was better than I could have imagined! A beautiful home that was pristine clean, and had lovely dcor and a warm vibe. I loved all the amenities including the fire pit, cute barn, and hot tub. The rooms were perfectly made and a great sleep too! Would love to return to this charming home!

This place is amazing and a real treat for the eyes. The reading room is a personal favourite but there's something pleasant about every room and every nook here - it's clear that a lot of love and care was put into the decor and ambience. Plus, the amenities are incredible. Truly felt like I was at a hotel.

This was a beautiful home to stay in for a special birthday getaway weekend with a few friends. Everything was perfect - the dcor was beautiful, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped. We spent lots of time outside enjoying the beautiful yard as well as the hot tub and fire pit. I would happily return! Thanks for everything!

Beautiful house, carefully designed, and with all the amenities needed for a great stay in the County! We have been travelling to PEC for a decade now, and this is one of our fav locations. We love the proximity to the Sandbanks, as well as to Picton and Wellington. The hot tub is a great feature, as are all the books and games. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds are firm and super comfortable. Would definitely return and recommend! Thanks for a great stay.

The Gem is a lovely property and we had a great stay there. The home is beautifully designed, and was extremely clean, well-cared for and well-equipped. We especially loved spending time in the cozy reading room, hanging out in the beautiful kitchen and dining in the barn. We hope to return very soon!

The Gem was so perfect spot for our first getaway this year! The best location ever in PEC, only 5min drive from Sandbanks, so close to Picton, Bloomfield, wineries and breweries. We were so impressed by thoughtful and lovely touches everywhere: nice bathrobes for all the guests, plenty of towels, Nespresso machine, additional fans in every room, super stylish living room with old piano, even their mudroom/library area was beautiful. We absolutely loved hanging out at their beautiful spacious kitchen/dining area and loved the outdoor/backyard so much - relaxing at the hot tub, lying in hammock, eating at the beautiful barn with special lights, sitting around our fire pit watching the stars at night. We were so happy we found this Gem and seriously wished we could stay there longer!

We stayed for 9 days with our kids (1 and 8) and large 9 month old puppy. The house is in a lovely location very close to the sand banks park (5 minute drive) and Picton (10 minutes). There is a large backyard, which was great for our kids and dog to play in. Communication with the host was very quick and clear. Check in and out with easy. The house itself is lovely, with everything you could need for a relaxing getaway. It is very stylish and a lot of thought has obviously been put into the dcor. Theres William Morris wallpaper in one of the bedrooms - definitely above and beyond on dcor. You just need to bring your clothes and a toothbrush. There are loads of towels, robes, cleaning supplies, dishes, there were even food staples, which saved us having to buy those in order to cook. Our kids really enjoyed the piano, art supplies and games that are provided. The area looks to be quite good for activity when there is not a province wide shut down. We mostly took advantage of the outdoor amenities. We will definitely be back, hopefully when coronavirus is under control.
