Within a story book setting, Miller's retreat is in a beautifully restored and maintained 185 year old Mill surrounded by tranquil gardens and a soothing waterfall...pure heaven! Its location allows you to do as much or as little as you desire. You are close to Prince Edward County for wineries, restaurants or you can just relax on your own patio...

Management response:

About the neighbourhood
We are located in a small hamlet called Lonsdale on an island in the Salmon River 2 hours east of Toronto just 6 minutes north of the 401. Picton is 30 minutes to the south, Kingston is 35 minutes east and Belleville is 25 minutes west. Kingston and The Thousand Islands, Prince Edward County Wineries and Sandbanks Provincial Park are all in easy access for a day's outing.
Car recommended
How to get there
Address is 1062 Marysville Road, Marysville, Ontario. K0K 2N0. From Toronto, take 401 East to Marysville Exit 566. From Montreal, take 401 West to Marysville Exit 566. Head north off the exit ramp to the T in the road. Turn right at the T, you will still be on Marysville Road, which is actually an extension of Hwy 49 which goes south from the 401 to Picton. Now make the first left hand curve in the road, which is still Marysville Rd. You will come in to the hamlet of Lonsdale by just following the road. We are the large stone house on the right between the two one lane bridges.
