A short walk from downtown and the St. Lawrence River, this fully restored 1814 inn offers gourmet breakfasts, welcome glasses of wine, and personalized hospitality.

The Destination
Overlooking the St. Lawrence River, the historic town of Cornwall has it all. Sure, it's home to fewer than 50,000 residents, but Ontario's easternmost city feels much larger: There's live theater at the Upper Canada Playhouse and nearly 600 works of art on display at The Art Gallery of Cornwall. With 55 miles of walking and biking trails on the Waterfront Trail, plus fishing and boating on the St. Lawrence River, outdoor adventure is never far away. For golfers, Cornwall and the surrounding counties feature no fewer than a dozen courses. There's even a casino and motor speedway nearby. A little more than an hour's drive from both Montreal and Ottawa, this is truly a one-size-fits-all vacation destination.

The Digs
Located a block from the cafes, bars, galleries, and restaurants of Pitt Street, Chesley's Inn is also just a short walk from the St. Lawrence River. Built in 1814, this newly restored inn is a classic example of Georgian architecture, with its stately brick facade, twin fireplaces, and winding staircase. Other touches include elegant period furnishings such as four-poster beds, rich wood armoires, and a unique square grand piano, while high-speed Internet is available throughout the inn. Each of four rooms is similarly appointed in 19th-century style and equipped with iPod docks. In the morning, wake up to a delicious breakfast featuring local, organic foods and cheeses, including the ever-popular slow-smoked bacon.

  • "Prowse has given Chesley’s a tasteful makeover, with woodwork painted in pristine white and walls in a soothing palette of pastels."
