Are you looking to plan a special celebration with your closest girlfriends? A girls’ weekend getaway is the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and create lasting memories. And what better way to celebrate than by renting a place that offers comfort, luxury, and a touch of charm? Look no further than Lassing House, a hidden gem nestled in Quinte West.

Lassing House is more than just a place to stay. It’s an idyllic retreat that combines tranquillity, charm, and breathtaking natural beauty. Situated on 8 peaceful acres, this century-old farmhouse will leave you in awe! From its historic past as a working farm to the remnants of outbuildings that add to its unique ambiance, Lassing House holds a rich history within the Quinte region.

Step into the large, fully equipped kitchen, where culinary enthusiasts will find everything they need to whip up delicious meals. With quartz countertops, a harvest table, and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances.

As you venture outside, you’ll discover a 36′ heated pool, perfect for refreshing swims or leisurely soaks. The pool features easy entry steps and a built-in bench along its length, allowing you to relax and enjoy the water to the fullest. There are also colour-changing LED lights to create the perfect atmosphere for summer night swims. The spacious patio, sunroom, and beautifully lit gazebo, complete with a hot tub, provide ample space for relaxation and enjoyment throughout your stay.

Lassing House goes above and beyond to ensure every guest feels welcomed and pampered. Each guest receives a customized welcome gift, setting the tone for a truly special experience. The attention to detail continues with Canadian-made Douglas memory foam mattresses, luxury linens, and pillows guaranteeing a restful night’s sleep. Plush bathrobes, provided for your comfort, add an extra touch of luxury.

Beyond the comforts of Lassing House, you’ll find plenty of attractions and activities in the surrounding area. Explore nearby golf courses, hiking and cycling trails, fishing spots, and local provincial parks. If you’re in the mood for a culinary adventure, a day trip to Prince Edward County for a wine tour is a must! View our Google Map at the end of the blog to plan your own itinerary!

What truly sets Lassing House apart is the warm and welcoming hospitality of the host, Jeff, and his incredible family. They are committed to making your stay absolutely flawless. From personalized tips to service so attentive it’s practically telepathic, they’ll treat you like a member of the family. Their genuine warmth and attention to detail will make you feel like you’ve stumbled upon your dream home away from home.

With the property being in their family for multiple generations, they have taken great pride in its maintenance and preservation. Jeff’s grandfather, who wore many hats as an architect, engineer, and artist, left his creative mark on the house with his stunning paintings adorning its walls. The majority of the decorating has been skillfully carried out by their Mom, while their Dad has played a vital role in maintaining the property. 

Get ready to ignite the party vibes! When planning your girls’ weekend getaway, consider partnering with County Baches. They specialize in planning and decorating bachelorette and birthday parties, taking care of all the details so all you have to do is show up and get ready to pop the champagne! We went with their Barbie theme, and County Baches kicked it up a notch, by transforming the Lassing House into a Barbie dreamhouse. They had a whole margarita cocktail station set up and an assortment of pool floaties for us! And I can’t forget the donuts they left us from Wannamakers Bakery. That’s not all! We each scored a goody bag filled to the brim with must-haves that made our weekend unforgettable. We’re talking beach towels, snazzy visors, water bottles, face masks, chapsticks, and more. I had the honour of being the first one there, so I had a front-row seat to witness the surprise on my cousin’s face when she stepped through the door and saw what awaited her—a surprise birthday party!

From balloons and decorations to special surprises tailored to your theme, County Baches will create an unforgettable setting for your celebration. As a BONUS, Lassing House has teamed up with County Baches for the 2023 season, offering guests an exclusive 10% off their services when booking a package.

No birthday celebration is complete without delicious food and culinary delights. So, I picked up a charcuterie board from OnBoard which included a variety of cheeses, meats, fresh and dried fruits, pickled vegetables, crackers, various accompaniments, jams/dips, and nuts.

After every stay, Lassing House partners with Tidy Homes Cleaning, a professional cleaning service, to provide thorough cleaning and sanitization. Their dedicated team takes cleanliness seriously, to create an immaculate experience for guests. With their meticulous approach and attention to detail, you can unwind and make the most of your getaway, knowing that everything has been taken care of.

So, whether you’re planning a birthday celebration or a girls’ weekend getaway, Lassing House promises an unforgettable experience that will leave you refreshed, rejuvenated, and longing to return!
