With more wineries than you can count, great dining options and cute shops popping up, it’s no doubt why Prince Edward County has caught the eye of many. PEC has quickly become a place of destinations, and being only a few hours East of Toronto, it’s certainly an easier getaway for most. Of course with the growing popularity, comes high demand for accommodation and when you’re looking for somewhere to stay The Meadow House PEC is exactly what you’re looking for.
When you show up to the Meadow House PEC, you just feel like you are in wine country. It’s a quant, yet funky bungalow surrounded by green fields and wineries just steps away. The interior though is another thing. Whether you’re an ‘Instagrammer’ or not, the aesthetic at the Meadow House PEC is seriously pleasing to the eye. I went with one of my friends Alex for a little girls’ getaway, and we were in actual awe of how cute everything was! We were greeted by a sweet personalized note and a bottle of sparkling rosé right from Prince Edward County.
The Meadow House PEC is definitely not your basic Airbnb, it’s so.much.better. Every piece of furniture and detail in the house is so thought out to give you the perfect mix of modern, eclectic, and desert chic. You pretty much feel like you’ve walked into a magazine. Not only have they nailed the décor and space, they’ve extended it into the backyard area which is where Alex and I loved spending the evenings. Relaxing on the outdoor couch with wine, cheese and blankets watching the sunset was a dream.
If the weather isn’t cooperating, the Meadow House PEC has you hooked up with Netflix, board games and a record player (our fave thing to use both in the morning drinking coffee and in the evening drinking wine). And if you’re looking to venture out to the wineries, into town or to shop, they also have a beautiful guide put together with all of their recommendations. Basically you’re covered on all ends.
While being in Prince Edward County in itself is the perfect getaway, staying at the Meadow House PEC really just elevates the whole experience. You really feel like you’re at a home away from home. Check out their availability and rates here.
Some extra details:
- Location – The Meadow House PEC is located in Hillier, which is the ‘wine country’ part in Prince Edward County. It’s about a 10 min drive into Wellington, where you’ll find restaurants and breweries, and about 20-25 minute drive to Bloomfield and Picton, for more eating and shopping.
- Getting around – The Meadow House PEC is close enough to the wineries that you can bike; if you don’t bring up your own, you can rent in town in Wellington (book ahead). The wineries are relatively spread out, so make sure you plan your route ahead and wear proper attire. The other option is of course a designated driver through the wineries and also into town after for dinner
