Lockyer's Country Gardens, Picton

Such great professionals. Always helpful and ready to answer questions. I have no green thumb, so they get a run for their money when I stop in!

Great spot on Rice Lake! Lots of new cottages have went up since I had been here last! The boat ramp is well maintained and there's lots of dockage for boaters! The Boathouse restaurant has excellent food on the resort site as well! Great facilities with showers, toilets and a great little convenience/souvenir shop.

Rutherford's Farm and Roadside Market, Colborne

Clive and Jane Nickerson on 11-Jan-19
The BEST strawberries, corn, tomatoes, and especially APPLES! Love the fact that they have older varieties like Snow and McIntosh, Transparent and Russet

Emilyville Inn (The Windswept Group), Campbellford

Lovely Inn, great service, great location! We were initially going to come early December, but had to reschedule. Host Kimberley was super-accommodating, and after yet another re-schedule, we ended up coming for New Year's Eve. We were the only guests, which allowed us to have a quick peak at all the rooms. The Inn is a beautiful Victorian Home, furnished with antiques, yet with a comfortable casual feel to it. We had access to the kitchen which was convenient to put our ice and Champagne to chill. The house was impeccably clean. All the rooms are lovely, with updated and sparkling clean bathrooms. They are not huge: this is in the old Inn style! The twin room on the main floor has access to the main floor bathroom, but they have to step out of the room to do so. Our room was the Cannonball room, I had selected it because of the King-Size bed. We were not disappointed: while the room is a bit 'tight', the bed was incredibly comfortable. The location is fantastic with access to walking trail, and only 5 minutes from anywhere downtown Campbellford. Because of the weather, we could not do as much walking as we would have liked, but we still had a great time, and easily walked to and back from our dinner reservation at a local fine food restaurant. We were able to relax, and watch TV in the main room during late evening, and the free WIFI worked great. The traffic died down, and it was very quiet for sleeping. A delicious, generous breakfast which included fresh fruits, omelette, toasts and bacon, was served at our own chosen time of 8 AM; Kimberley was a most gracious hostess.

Empire Cheese and Butter Cooperative, Campbellford

Margaret C on 08-Jan-19
Well worth a stop if you are in the Campbellford area. They offer a variety of cheeses of different sizes as well as a sampling tray. There are also cheese curds for sale as well as interesting chutneys, jams, etc. We would definitely stop by again.
