A couple of blocks further and you will find downtown Picton with its many cafes, restaurants, shops, galleries, and theatre.If you're looking for adventure, spend the day at the beach or one of the local spas, tour the wineries, shop and browse in the boutiques, artisan and antique shops, dine out at a fine restaurant or pub, play a round of golf, tour the County on bicycle, or check out the local farm markets.For more information about local attractions and activities, check out VisittheCounty.ca.Maximum 9 persons - no more than 6 adults.

The property is accurate as described and the location is ideal; an easy drive to wineries and beaches. There is also the advantage of having restaurants within walking distance; Portobellos is especially close and quite good though I would recommend making a reservation.
The provided park pass is a lovely added touch.
The property is very clean and well maintained and we would not hesitate to recommend Owen House to friends and family.
I would suggest providing sheets (we only used the Master bedroom) of a little higher quality. Also, the Picton area can get quite hot and the master bedroom does not seem to be vented to the house's air conditioning and there was no fan provided; so that room became quite uncomfortable at night. I would suggest providing a fan.
Overall, it's a lovely house.
