A gorgeous Scandinavian-inspired rustic chic 1850's heritage home located in the heart of Prince Edward County's wine country. Lovingly restored, this quiet retreat is seconds from cafés and restaurants and minutes from white sandy beaches and vineyards. This private suite has two queen bedrooms and is entirely self-contained. Recently named by Canadian Living as their pick for top 3 uniquely decorated hotels in Canada.

The space
*** Open for guests and Health and Safety Protocols in place.

This beautiful home was originally built in the 1850's and the first owner of the land was a young Loyalist soldier and entrepreneur named Arra Ferguson who received the property from the Crown in 1816. As two young entrepreneurs stewarding the house over 200 years later, we love this fellow's pioneering spirit and The Ferg is aptly named after Arra.

We have lovingly restored and renovated all three suites in the house, maintaining the beautiful historic details while providing all the modern comforts our guests expect and deserve. Our interiors are designed to provide you with the most comfortable and inviting backdrop for your time in The County with your friends and family. We were inspired by the Scandinavian design principles of warmth, simplicity and minimalism and absolutely loved scouring The County for antiques to add personality.

The Main House comprises the original home and as such maintains its grandeur and scale. It includes a fully-renovated kitchen with a dishwasher, full fridge, stove and oven; a spa-like bathroom and claw foot rub; laundry; spacious living areas and ample outside areas and two decks with your own private BBQ (for summer months). You won't be lacking in space to escape or to entertain.

We hope you love this relaxing home as much as we do! Thanks

Guest access
You have access to the Main House which is fully self-contained over two floors, your own BBQ's (in summer months), gardens, a hammock and the parking area in the back.

Picton, Ontario, Canada

Seconds from the energetic Main Street of the bustling town of Picton in the heart of The County, The Ferg is nestled among old oak trees on a generous property with mature gardens, surrounded by other historic homes of note, making it a bucolic getaway with all the amenities and conveniences of the town.

In just a 12 minute drive, you can be at the white sand beaches and dunes of the famous Sandbanks Provincial Park.

The pretty towns of Bloomfield and Wellington are 7 and 15 minutes away respectively by car, with their galleries, shops, restaurants and cafes.

The 44 world class vineyards in the area are all within a few minutes driving distance, as are all the incredible attractions the County has to offer.

The Main Street offers grocery stores, a pharmacy, excellent restaurants, pubs, cafés, galleries and shops, all within walking distance.

Around the corner from the house in the other direction is 62 acres of parkland, trails, a dog park and historic Glenwood Cemetery, built by the same architect who designed Mount Pleasant in Toronto.

A five minute drive takes you to Lake on the Mountain for beautiful views, a wine bar, a brewery and gastropub.

McCauley Mountain is also a five minute drive away, with a network of hiking, cross country skiing, snow shoeing and mountain biking trails and great views over the harbour.

Picton Harbour itself is a lovely short walk to the other side of town from The Ferg.
