Welcome to Prince Edward County, historically known as “THE COUNTY”! Originally established as a United Empire Loyalist Settlement, this area has a long and colourful history dealing with farming, fishing, canning, rum running and, of course, “The Horn Trip”.

Whether it’s sand beaches, farm fields, orchards, bluffs or wineries, breathtaking views wait around each bend in the road.

Like other places in the world, The County is no stranger to change! While tourism and agriculture are the backbone of our economy, we have seen an infusion of creativity and culture. Wineries, artisans, theatre, quaint villages & towns, water sports, fishing, festivals and fairs keep visitors and locals busy year round.

Located approximately 2 hours from Toronto and 2 ½ hours from Ottawa & Montreal, The County has become a destination for people to settle down to a quieter pace of life while still having access to the larger cities.

When it’s your “time” to buy or sell a home here in “The County”, reach out to Kevin Gale at Re/Max Quinte. His professional approach to real estate will take the stress out of one of the biggest decisions of your life.
