Joanne is an excellent host, prompt and accurate with her communication. Her suite is very clean and homey! She's also fantastic for recommendations. The suite is also a quick walk to the main streets with lots of great restaurants and little shops.

We had a wonderful stay at The Barker Suite! The space is an inviting Home-away-from Home, with all the amenities you could need or want throughout your stay. It’s clear that Joanne has taken careful consideration to ensure her guests feel welcome and comfortable, with thoughtful little touches that make the stay that much more enjoyable. The suite itself is cozy, very clean, and ideally located just a short walk from several restaurants and and other shops. It was also the perfect place to stay to while we enjoyed a PEC wine tour. I highly recommend the Barker Suite, and hope to return again in the future!

Nice cosy and comfortable stay. Sheets were super soft! The suite had all the amenities you would need. 5 minute walk to the downtown strip. Nice little touches- like breakfast basket and a bottle of bubbly in the fridge. Joanne had remembered that it was my husband’s birthday. Overall a nice and relaxed stay.

We had a really wonderful experience staying at the Barker Guest Suite. It was really well-prepared and it is very clear that Joanne put a lot of thought and care in preparing the place. We felt very welcome and we thought it was a perfect and beautiful place to stay. It was very cozy and comfortable and equipped with everything we needed and more. We really regret staying for only one night, but that only makes us want to come back when we visit Prince Edward County and the Bay of Quinte area again. We highly recommend it !
