GPS routings work fairly well if you’re coming from points west. If coming from the east, be careful if you’re using a GPS and have simply keyed in our address. If you’re travelling from points east, GPS routing may send you down un-assumed roads or tell you about bridges that don’t exist! If you’re coming from Montreal or Kinston on the 401, it’s best to refer to our location map, or Google Maps to find us!

If you get off the 401 at the Brighton exit and you’re watching road signs carefully, it can be confusing. Coming from the west you may notice a Brighton Municipal sign behind you as you approach the Murray Canal on County Road 64. This is confusing, since we have a Brighton address! In fact, you leave Brighton and you leave Northumberland County as you cross the Murray Canal bridge to get to our “part” of Brighton.

It is only after bearing off the main road and proceeding another kilometer or two where another “Welcome to Brighton” sign unexpectedly appears. The Timber House is actually on the ‘island’ most people think of as Prince Edward County, but our location is in a small area at the northwest tip that is part of the town of Brighton.

Brighton’s boundaries were established in 1851 when the adjacent Cramahe and Murray Townships were reduced to establish a separate township of Brighton. At this point, the Brighton ‘island’ area did not yet exist. For unknown reasons, when the new township of Brighton was carved out of the adjoining townships, the south Stoney Point area of the new Brighton township was isolated by the eastern arm of Brighton Bay from the main area of Brighton township to the north. (Brighton Bay is shown on the 1880 map as Presqueisle Bay). The image below is taken from the 1880 Map in the Canadian County Digital Atlas. Note the Stoney Point area shows on the 1880 map as ‘Stony’ Point.

The boundaries made it impossible to travel by land from the north end of Brighton Township to the south end without leaving the township and the county. The ‘island’ of Brighton was created when the Murray Canal was completed in 1889. The canal completely cut off the southern end of Brighton from the mainland. Thus was created the ‘island’ of Brighton. The island ‘effect’ is seen on the Google location map above. Zoom in to see the Murray Canal bisecting Brighton as it connects from Brighton Bay to the Bay of Quinte.

The Timber House Country Inn therefore welcomes you to the ‘Island of Brighton’!

    This Resort as a B & B is excellent. It is quiet, the beds comfortable, the rooms spacious, and home cooked breakfast excellent. The main house is picturesque out side and inside. The service is friendly and casual. A good place to rest and relax.
