Serving Napanee and Prince Edward County: Where Elegance Meets Local Charm

At Empey Estates, we’re more than just a luxurious venue — we’re a cornerstone in the heart of Ontario’s scenic settings. Conveniently situated off the 401, we are proud to serve the beautiful communities of Napanee and Prince Edward County. Our venue stands as a testament to the rich history and vibrant culture that define these remarkable locations.

Embracing Napanee’s Heritage

Nestled in the tranquility of Empey Hill, our venue has deep roots in the Napanee community. Once a United Church built in 1912, Empey Estates has been thoughtfully transformed into a versatile event space that honors its heritage. Our Grand Hall, where the original stained glass windows radiate stories of the past, has hosted countless unforgettable events for Napanee residents.

We understand the allure of Prince Edward County — its renowned vineyards, picturesque landscapes, and artisanal markets make it a destination worth visiting. That’s why we’re excited to be just a short drive away, offering a unique alternative for residents and visitors seeking luxury without compromising on local character. Our Garden Terrace has been the backdrop for numerous Prince Edward County residents’ most special occasions, surrounded by natural beauty that complements the county’s own.
