When you really need to fly the coop, make your getaway to Runaway Rooster!
Centrally located in the heart of charming Bloomfield, this stunning, red cedar, chalet-style home has everything you need to escape the city barnyard.
Stay in one of the three beautifully decorated bed & breakfast rooms within the main house, or in the private, four-season guest cottage.
It’s a lovely 5-10 minute stroll (1 km) into Bloomfield where you’ll find shops, restaurants, artisan studios, spa, bike rental and more. Restaurant Flame + Smith is just a two minute walk from us. Picton is 5-minutes by car, Wellington is 10 minutes and Sandbanks Provincial Park is 15 minutes.
BED & BREAKFAST
The main house features a stunning Great Hall soaring up to an 18-ft-high ceiling, and 3 beautifully-appointed guest bedrooms. Its airy, upscale cottage-like feel and aesthetic create a unique, cool, non-traditional B&B experience. It offers a resort-like ambience with several outdoor seating areas on the large, creek-side property.
The Roost master bedroom features a queen-size bed, its own ensuite and private walkout balcony. With a shared bathroom, The Coop and The Nest, a double-size bed in each, make ideal accommodation rooms for friends, couples and families (children 12+) travelling together.
A full breakfast is served from 8:30 a.m. – 9:30a.m. daily.
White, bright and airy, the 800-sq.-ft. guest cottage is lovely and welcoming. Its vibe is stylishly eclectic, mashing together modern-casual with retro and boho-chic, and fun pops of colour, furnishings and accents.
It’s the perfect home base for two to four guests (children 12+) to experience the bounty of the County.
If you’re a foodie, you’ll LOVE the fabulous gourmet kitchen – perfect for preparing your farm-stand finds. Gather round the counter-top island for cocktails. Dine at the 1950s yellow-red Formica kitchen table. Or go al fresco on the backyard BBQ deck.
You’ll sleep soundly on queen-size mattress comfort in the private bedroom or the queen-size pull-out sofa-bed in the main room. The full bath/shower is spectacular! Linens and towels included.
Runaway Rooster B&B + Guest Cottage is open year-round: 2-night minimum; 3-night minimum, long weekends (inquire about 1-night weekday and last-minute flexibility). Credit cards accepted.
We flew the coop one hot summer and landed in love with the County!
We’re absolutely thrilled to call this magical place home, and eager to share its beauty and bounty with others.
We’re big food and wine enthusiasts, love good music, and taking leisurely, back-country drives in search of new discoveries … and that perfect barn shot.
We look forward to welcoming you.
