Timber House Resort

116 Cedardale Road, Brighton

Settle in for a quiet staycation on Lake Ontario in a resort suite or a luxury waterfront trailer. The on-site Rendezvous food truck is a delicious bonus and begs the age-old question: poutine or mac & cheese bites? (TRICK QUESTION: The answer is both!!)

A large room with floor-to-ceiling fireplace and wood beams. With so much to see, eat, explore and do, it's hard to know where to begin! Check out our weekly ideas for things you Must Do in BoQ.

The County Emporium

2522 County Road 64, Carrying Place

Clothing, confections, coffee and candles are only the beginning! This new Quinte West biz offers a wide variety of products, many local to Bay of Quinte and Prince Edward County, along with weekly dinners from a local restaurant. Bonus: their patio is fully licensed!

Oak Hills Golf Club

1538 Frankford Stirling Road, Quinte West

The changing elevation on this 36-hole course provides a challenge to golfers at all skill levels. We love hitting this course when fall is in *full swing* 😉, especially for views like this from the patio.

Sager Conservation Area

30 Golf Course Road, Quinte West

97 steps on the trail + 48 steps on the lookout tower = a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. Sure, there’s no patio, but it makes for one heck of a scenic picnic, especially with those fall colours.

Export Bar & Grill

182 Front Street, downtown Belleville

We’re filling up on snacks before dinner, munching on everything from bruschetta and burger bites to dumplings and onion rings. Being on a patio in the fall means matching our drink (a Caesar, most likely!) to our red plaid sweaters.
