FAQ

Q-I’ve never stayed at a B&B before, what can I expect at The Manse?
A- The Manse is technically an Inn, but operates like a B&B. We have a dedicated husband and wife team of innkeepers who live in a small cottage next door, the Mini Manse.  There is no front desk staff, no porters, no wait staff or bartenders.  We offer a very laid back and relaxed atmosphere where the only rules are “Be nice and Have Fun!”  Often Guests converse with other guests, and sometimes they don’t.  The best thing about The Manse is that you are not obligated to do either.
The property of The Manse is quite extensive with multiples places to sit and relax. We like to think of The Manse as an Oasis in the heart of Picton. Even though The Main st. is mere steps away, you wouldn’t know it.
We invite all of our guests to make themselves at home, The Manse doesn’t feel like a hotel.
