I just spent the last few hours cleaning and primping my rental units. They look completely awesome. We have our first customer of the season arriving tomorrow and they are staying for two weeks. We are so excited that our bed and breakfast, South in Milford, will be up and running for a full season in 2015. We are much more confident this year. We really had no idea what we were doing last year, but somehow we figured it out as we received some wonderful reviews from our renters.
In case you have forgotten what we offer, let me refresh your memory. Classroom #1 is a large, open plan, fully furnished studio with two queen beds, a generous kitchenette with a bar fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, toaster, and a full set of dishes. It has a dining table, seating area (both indoors and out), and a private bath. Classroom #2 has all the perks as it’s neighbour but has one king sized bed instead of the two queens.
This year, we are thrilled to offer The Library as our third rental. We have converted the library, the secretary’s and principle’s office into a comfortable, family friendly two bedroom suite. This unit has one queen sized bed in one bedroom and three single beds in the other bedroom. I don’t have any photos as we are still in construction. If all goes well, this suite will be available by mid May.
Now that we have our kitchen in the gym, we will be converting the staff room (our previous kitchen) to a fully functioning kitchen that will be available to our guests. We understand that not everyone wants to eat out for every meal, and it’s not always ideal to dine with kids. Even though it is lovely to have a kitchenette, it does have it’s limitations and can cramp your culinary flair. The guest kitchen will have a full set of pots, pans, and utensils, a stove and a full sized fridge for your use.
As you may know, we are located in beautiful Milford, Prince Edward County. We are a 10 minute drive to world famous Sandbanks Provincial Park with it’s long, white sandy beach and sand dunes, the picturesque town of Picton, Vickis Veggies organic farm, the charming town of Bloomfield, and Little Bluff Conservation Area featuring a secluded rock beach.
Prince Edward County, Ontario is one of the premiere wine growing regions of Canada. There are many outstanding vineyards right in our backyard. Lighthall Vineyards, Long Dog Winery, Exultet Estates, and Half Moon Bay Winery are just a handful of neighbouring vineyards to visit while in Milford.
We are open May until October. We have a two night minimum for the months of May, June, September and October. We will be renting on a weekly basis for July and August.
We are kid friendly, dog friendly, and just plain friendly. We have 9 acres for you to roam, chickens for you to feed, organic vegetables and fruit for you to eat from our garden, trees to relax under, country air for you to breathe, Mount Tabor, The Milford Bistro, and bragging rights that you stayed in a converted elementary school.
Let us not forget that we are also wheelchair accessible.
Please pass this on to all the fabulous people in your life.
