If art and food are your passion, then ‘you gotta be here”!” says owner/artist Kena Cumming Cormier. Both artists, Kena and husband Lawrence have fully integrated their art into their beautiful lakeview B&B/art gallery with whimsical, colourful art found adorning walls to metal sculptures in the garden, it is a celebration of art and culture. Kena also notes, “Our artwork can be found in collections through out the world”.
Those interested in the art of gastronomy will be delighted with their locavorian-focused cuisine. Breakfasts are created with fresh from the market fare and locally roasted coffee is served. After breakfast guests can wander the garden or walk down to the lake for a stroll. Of course, the B&B is also located in the middle of one of the most beautiful wine regions, so the art of winemaking is also included in the artistic theme at Cormier’s Studio.
This recent Trip Advisor review says it all: “Great Location, walk to downtown and waterfront. Beautiful rooms, comfortable, clean, well laid out and full of artwork. The whole home and gardens outside are full of artwork. It was such a pleasure to stay here. Kena and Lawrence are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were incredible. We would highly recommend this B&B.”
The gallery is open most days from 11am – 5pm.
