It begins!!!! We will more than likely be in Canada previous to this date (taking full advantage of the warm sun) but our island rental starts today!! If you are one of the lucky ones that will be spending the week with us plan on arriving on Monday ... cuz this is where it starts.
Early hello brunch at the Woodview Inn
Dressy Casual Attire
250 Kings ST W, Gananoque, ON
These exact details are still in the works, but we will be having a brunch for those of you arriving early and staying on the river with us!! A little small thank you!! More details to follow but this would also be a great opportunity to explore downtown Gananoque.
Exact timing is to be determined, but we will have our very own in-house Yoga Instructor, Gina.
She has graciously offered to share her services with you all!!
There has been some interest from guests to explore one of the two castles that are within the Thousand Islands region.
If you are interested in seeing in touring one of the castles, please let us know. We can set up a group excersion.
Tours run anywhere from $10 - $15 per person - Passports will be required, as we will have to cross back over into US territory in order to tour the castle.
Dinner Cruise welcoming you all to the 1000 islands
(in front of the Arthur Child Heritage Museum)
125 Water St, Gananoque ON
Welcome to the islands!! At this point everyone will have arrived!!
It's very important to us that you all meet one other. Personal Goal: we want all of our favorite people to be friends - cuz you guys are incredible and everyone deserves incredible friends. In addition to all of the friends you will be making this will also be a great opportunity for you to get acquainted with these magnificent surroundings and a chance for us to say a huge "thank you!!"
Rest assured this three hour dinner cruise will allow you to see roughly 993 of the 1,864 (thank you wiki) islands that exist within the 1000 Island region. Just don't blink - some of them go by fast. We will journey a gracious loop under the Thousand Islands Bridge and cross over to the American side to view the infamous Bolt Castle and back.
Boarding and disembarking will be taking place in Gananoque. Super convenient!!
COST: $30 per adult person (kids free) - *cash bar*
Attendance is not necessary but we would thoroughly enjoy everyones presence. We have chartered the entire boat, so it will only be our incredible group on board!!!
We will be returning at 10pm. Let us know if you'd like to join us!!
