This place is well located. It is in the country and very nice and quiet, but only 6 km from The very pretty town of Sutton (cafés, restos, bakeries etc.) There is a lovely area for nice nature walks and several little places to be quiet and relax with a good book or simply enjoy the surroundings. The house is very pretty, country style and Pina, our host, is extremely kind and interesting; she is a fantastic artist. The breakfasts are delicious and all is home made. The room was very comfortable with most of what we needed (microwave oven, toaster, dishes etc). Nice view of nature and the beautiful trees from the bedroom. All very clean. My husband and I really enjoyed everything about this place. I highly recommend it! Claire and Mike from Montreal
We've been returning to Pinorama for 10 years now. A beautifully designed country home full of light, cozy spaciousness and the creative touch of the owner's artwork here and there. Rooms are clean, welcoming and discreetly decorated, with very comfortable beds. Breakfast is healthy, tasty and satisfying, with a good chance of meeting interesting people. If you enjoy spacious landscape, a walk in the adjacent woods, ambient peacefulness and the inspiring beauty of good architecture mixed with original art, this could be your new favourite getaway. For us, Pinorama is a one-of-a-kind restful country home, and nothing short of a gem.
We visit the eastern townships regularly to enjoy nature and ski. This is our first time at B&B Pinorama. The house is located in a beautiful country setting, private and with an amazing view. We enjoyed our room going up the stairs from the first floor, it was cozy and warm with a comfortable bed. Pina, our host, was very kind and let us enjoy her living room, we spent an evening in front of the fireplace enjoying the fantastic country view outside and enjoying the sunshine coming through the windows, the house is beautifully designed. The place is clean, warm, cozy, packed with interesting art, big windows, and lots and lots of trees. Breakfast was delicious, great coffee too! Thank you to Pina. We had a great time.
My husband and I are from Ottawa and stayed at Pinorama 10 years for our honeymoon and decided to go back for our anniversary. Everything was just as we remembered it. From Pina our host - such a lovely lady, to our room, to her buckwheat pancakes! I waited a long time to eat those again. We highly recommend staying at her B&B. We will be back Pina, sooner than later. :)
We do NOT (we cannot emphasize this enough) recommend this B&B for several reasons: 1. To start with - we had booked a room on the 3rd floor but right at the door we were told that though that room was available, there is another room on the 1st floor and we were sort of encouraged to take it. At first, we said OK, but then we realized that the 1st level of the house is kind of cold (about 0oC) and damp and smells like mold. Thankfully we got the original room we had booked. 2. Though the room itself was comparatively spacious, there was no space for our staff in the closets (except one section where the blankets and the bed sheets were). Everything else was filled with staff that belonged to the hostess, so much so that we had to keep our clothes, etc. in the suitcases. Not really very convenient. 3. The bathtub/shower was another issue. The bathroom of our room was built in the space directly under the pitched roof of the house (like an attic). Nothing wrong with that except the bathtub/shower are located in the lowest point where the roof reaches the floor. Not even a 5" high person or kid can stand under the shower. You have to squat or bend somehow. Using the bathtub did not seem a wise option to us either - it looked too old and not very sanitary. The fact that all the shampoo, shower gels, etc. were open bottles half used (I guess by previous guests) did not give us much more confidence in the sanitary conditions of the bathroom. Also - be prepare to not have enough water pressure if someone is using water somewhere else in the house. 4. We were also told that eating in the room is not appreciated. That would have been fine if we weren't also told that we could use the kitchen/dining area/living room IF NO ONE else is there (understand the hostess). Since all these things are advertised and featured on line, we believed they were part of the package (UNCONDITIONALLY). It is deceptive to post photos of the part of the B&B (kitchen, dining room, leaving room) and then say - you can not use them at your convenience. Those are actually part of the leaving quarters of the hostess, she is there watching TV and simply doing her things. One of the reasons we booked this place was the pictures of the fireplace and the leaving room advertised on line. Deception - these are not for the guests. 5. Security is another issue. The house is left unlocked all day/night long. Maybe the local residents consider the area safe enough to do that, but when one runs a business like B&B, he/she must provide better sense of security. On the top of this, the rooms (at least our) could not be locked from outside (only from inside). This is unacceptable for a place where complete strangers have to leave under the same roof. 6. At the end of our stay, after paying, we did not get any bill or receipt. Is this even legal? The asked price was way overpriced even for 5-star hotel. Unbelievable. I also have some concerns for the previous general positive reviews for this place! All in all - this place is very much substandard for 21 century B&B. This is not real B&B at all.…
We really enjoyed the peaceful nature around this great house of art. Our dog could run in the forrest so everyone was happy! The room was equipped with a small kitchenette to make tea or coffee and the host Pina is just lovely! The breakfast was delicious, made from local ingredients.
This is a very nice B+B outside the town. The lady who owns the place is very artistic, her house is surrounded by a nice meadow with many pieces of art made by her and her friends. The accommodation is really luxurious, everything is clean and very cosy.
This splendid B & B is an absolute TREAT! The house is beautiful, unique and filled with art. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and all have their own private bathrooms. And the hostess, Pina, is gracious, quadra-lingual, and as interesting as her remarkable home. I slept like a rock and even joked about driving 5 hours back to Sutton just to have another good night's sleep, another wonderful breakfast, and another engaging conversation with Pina. I cannot recommend Pinorama too highly.
I have been staying at this really special B&B many times for the past probably 8 years * I just can't wait to be back again, I love bringing friends & family - so unique, peaceful, feels like home, very European touch, so romantic, super clean, very delicious breakfast, lots of plants & a fireplace > U are diving into the oasis of a true Artist named Pina who is so kind, easy going & open minded ... Leave a message to reserve, u will be called back right away, u can arrive basically anytime + ok to stay for only one night ! breakfast is served when it suits u best .... no deposit required WOW + wow ENJOY
We stayed at Pinorama on our way further north (after calling and making an impromptu reservation - no credit card needed). We arrived late (after 11 pm) and found a welcoming note from Pina (the owner) telling us the door was open and how to find our room. The 3 of us slept in a wonderful large bedroom with very comfortable beds and a private bathroom. Pina is a very quirky artist (often using found objects as a basis to create her art) and her house is a marvel, filled with hers and other people’s charming and eccentric art (our bathroom towel rack was the legs of a mannequin!). In the morning she made us a wonderful breakfast of eggs, fruit and vegetables…very filling and delicious. We were the only guests and over breakfast we had a wide-ranging and interesting conversation with Pina. She also has a studio that shows off (and sells) much of her zany art, as well as gardens and lawns that are well-maintained and fun for exploring. The place was clean, inviting and different (we especially loved the rag mannequin “floozy” that stood watch over the living room). There was also beautiful small pool on the deck (that we didn’t try, but looked crystal clear). We would stay there again in a heartbeat and heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay near Sutton.…
