THE ISLAND MILL GETAWAY-OFF SEASON SPECIAL ONE NIGHT FREE-HOT TUB-PROV PARK PASS

Romantic ski retreat with ski-in/ski-out access
THE MILLER'S RETREAT
The perfect year round spot for relaxation, outdoor activities, nature/bird watching, a home base for sightseeing in this popular tourist area or all of the above!

OFF SEASON SPECIAL:
STAY FOR THREE NIGHTS AND ONLY PAY FOR TWO BETWEEN NOVEMBER 1 AND APRIL 30. The one night price adjustment will be made manually from my end.

CLEANING PROTOCOLS:
Along with our already unsurpassed cleaning protocols, we have now implemented a chemical free steam sanitizing regime. To help ensure the safety of our guests and to give adequate time for preparation, we are leaving ample time, as guidelines recommend, resulting in the possibility of a slightly later check in and a slightly earlier check out. We thank you in advance for your co-operation.

WAIVER:
A waiver must be signed upon arrival due to the inherent dangers associated with being near the water, for use of watercraft and bicycles and also to state that you are not exhibiting symptoms or are tested positive for Coronavirus nor have you travelled outside Canada within the 14 days prior to your arrival.

OVERVIEW:
An early 1800's stone mill sits on an island in the Salmon River between two one lane bridges. A waterfall on either side, weeping willow trees swaying in the breeze, the river alive with wildlife, a variety of birds and bountiful gardens completes the picture.
You are viewing the Miller's Retreat Suite on the river, lower level of the mill which has a private entrance. Our second suite, two floors above is called The Country Suite which shares the main entrance to the mill with myself and my husband who also live here.
Our mill is located in the very picturesque and historic hamlet of Lonsdale which has been the subject of many artists and photographers.

SELF CATERING:
This is a self catering rental as we do not provide meals. The full kitchen is equipped with pots/pans, cooking tools, cutlery, etc, everything you'll need to prepare your own meals indoors or outside. We do provide you with coffee, teas, coffee cream and all the basic condiments and spices for your convenience. We encourage you to bring some food with you to start out as there are no grocery stores in the immediate area.

BUYING GROCERIES:
There is a Metro, No Frills and a Walmart grocery store in Napanee, a 15 minute drive east. Many grocery stores are located in Belleville, 20 minutes west. There are also grocery stores in Picton, 30 minutes south.

DESCRIPTION OF SUITE:
The space is well appointed with authentic rustic charm and many custom features, original mill artifacts and eclectic and antique touches. The full kitchen features a 1930's porcelain sink brought from the mill owner's house, an antique dish cupboard, antique oak counter originally from the Kingston Whig Standard Newspaper office and custom cut granite. The bathroom boasts a vessel sink and a custom tile and limestone shower with glass sliding door and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. There are two comfy reclining chairs for watching t.v. in the sitting area and large limestone window sills in the three windows which look right out onto the river and waterfalls. There is a DVD player for use, please ask. The bedroom area is a cozy space with a custom made farmhouse queen size bed, a memory foam mattress, fine linens, an exposed original limestone wall and an electric fireplace for extra coziness. The television is on a swivel and can be viewed from eit mill doors as well as other mill artifacts adorn the space. A private patio with a Weber barbeque, chimnea and a dining area complete with cushioned, swivel chairs is situated right outside your door at the water’s edge. AMENITIES: The Miller's Retreat suite is situated right at the river's edge with a patio by the waterfalls for dining and relaxing. Kayaks, a canoe, motorized peddle boat and touring bicycles are all available free of charge to our guests from mid May until Thanksgiving and a riverside hot tub under the stars is available year round for which you have private times on any of the odd numbered hours. A Provincial Parks Pass is also complimentary with a guaranteed one day minimum use. until March 31, 2021 and May 1 -Oct 31, 2021. With waterfront on three sides, you'll likely want to spend some time on the river. It is usually high and quite fast until May and then quietens for relaxing paddles or peddles throughout the summer months and early fall. Only seasoned paddlers should use the river in May and we will only offer use of the boats at this time of year at our discretion. Swimming depends on the river levels which depends on the amount of rainfall. We reserve the right to limit or prohibit boat, bicycle or hot tub use if we deem necessary for any reason. All our amenities are fully complimentary. One bucket of wood is provided each day for use in the chimnea or firepit by the dock. Additional wood may be purchased at five dollars per bucket. You can also pick some fresh organic veggies ( in season) from our vegetable garden to complement your meals. Enjoying nature is the main occupation here. It is the river that gives this place it's magical vibe and brings the wildlife in abundance for our pleasure. Bring your camera! Great Blue Herons, Song Birds, Eagles, Osprey, Otters, Beavers, Muskrats, Geese, Ducks, Turtles and yes even snakes are all happy to call the island and the surrounding river home. (Do not interfere with the wildlife and they will not interfere with you.) A motorized peddle boat ride at sunrise or sunset is absolutely magical! The grounds are full of flowers and birds chirping and the sound of the waterfalls makes this an ideal spot to just kick back and enjoy. FALL AND WINTER AT THE MILL: In the cooler months of the year, enjoy the outdoor all season hot tub under the stars by the river and waterfall. (Private times on any of the odd numbered hours.) Take the Provincial Park Pass for several nearby parks or visit nearby Menzel Nature Preserve ( no pass needed) and go hiking or cross country skiing (bring your own skis). There are wineries in Prince Edward County that are open in the off season and many other seasonal attractions in our area during the cooler months.

Best vacay ever
Great place to get away. Amazing location and the best hosts ever!

5/5 Excellent

Hidden Gem
Great experience from start to finish! Unique area steeped in history. Not trendy but a beautiful location and facilities. Jerry and Suzie were gracious hosts. The cozy unit was well appointed and we did not have to bring a thing. Walking, biking or meandering up the river on the peddle boat were so tranquil. We loved the hot tub and had a fire every night before turning in and falling asleep to the sound of the waterfall. We were so fortunate to experience the salmon spawning! We cannot wait to come back to this very special place.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful, historic retreat.
If you are looking for relaxation with modern comforts in a historic atmosphere this is the place. The apartment is very warm and comfortable and the hosts very informative and obliging. A wonderful spot to retreat to after a day exploring the wineries in Prince Edward County.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing at Miller's Retreat
Did not want to leave and can't wait to return! Wonderful place to relax and enjoy nature and explore Prince Edward County. Suite beautifully appointed & private patio perfect. Kayaking was a wonderful way to recharge in these trying times, and grazing in the bountiful garden delicious! Cleanliness & sanitization top notch. Suzie & Jerry awesome hosts & delightful people:) Right in your own backyard Ontario!

5/5 Excellent

Much needed escape
This was our second time staying at the Mill and it was just as amazing as the first time. Going later in the season showed us the mill with lower water levels and the vegetable garden which were both amazing. Jerry and Suzie put lots of work in since our last visit and we can’t wait to visit the property again. You guys think of everything! And thank you for sharing your home with us, it is quickly becoming one of our favorite places.
