Turn your stay into a reading getaway 

Turn your stay into a reading getaway –


The Royal has partnered with Anansi Publishing to bring to you the coziest getaway – included in your stay you will receive 3 books to enjoy in all of the comfy corners of The Royal, and to take with you when you return home. Also included in your package is a list of questions from the publisher to dig deeper into your new books, a cozy pair of reading socks from local alpaca farm SHED Chetwyn, a Royal Candle from The County Candle Co. and a pack of extra-long Royal matches.


From October to January, enjoy the most-anticipated Anansi title – The Librarianist, from the bestselling and award-winning author Patrick deWitt comes the story of Bob Comet, a man who has lived his life through and for literature, unaware that his own experience is a poignant and affecting narrative in itself; An Ordinary Violence by Adriana Chartrand – a chilling horror novel about a young Indigenous woman haunted by the oppressive legacies of colonization; and from the CBC Massey Lectures The Age of Insecurity – in this urgent cultural diagnosis, author and activist Astra Taylor exposes how seemingly disparate crises originate from a social order built on insecurity.


Relish in the relaxing vibes of The County to escape to literary worlds. Cozy up in bed with our Italian linen sheets, turn your pages in our cedar-clad sauna, sip on a tea or glass of wine by the roaring fire in our Parlour or Library.


Make sure to book your dining reservation and spa appointment. While you are here talk to our knowledgeable front desk team about nature hikes, County wineries, and art galleries.


We look forward to seeing you soon!
