Houseboats, Camping (on islands), AirBnBs, Hotels and more. There are plenty of options out there for your accommodations. Things to keep in mind: camping - on surrounding islands - is cheap (and epic) but there is no running water or flush toilets. Compost toilets only - which are fairly therapeutic if I do say so myself. Doing your business in the wilderness. It would also probably be wise to rent a kayak/paddle board/small boat with your fellow campers so that you have a means of transportation. Houseboats are nothing fancy but super fun. They don't go fast, but this allows you to slow down on life a bit - something I think we could all use. Mainland has plenty of options as far as hotels and AirBnB's - keep in mind that it may be in your best interest to rent a boat so that you have freewill to explore and get off the mainland when desired.
Having said all of that - we promise you that we are going to do our best as far as providing transportation for everyone - it's just the logistics and spotty cell service that may hinder that a bit. But hey - miracles happen.
No boating experience needed, however it is helpful!!
The houseboats are close-living cabin-like homes on the river. They have 3 different floor plans each containing a dinette and couch that convert to double beds and bunk beds. The red floor model is the most popular, sleeping 4 adults comfortably - add an additional 2 adults by using the bunks.
They offer weekly rentals and long weekend rentals. The boats are limited and generally go very very quickly, so I would highly recommend reserving your boat before the end of January.
You park your car where you pick up the boat, which is less than a 10min drive from downtown Gananoque. Once on the boat you're only 45min cruise from Lindsay Island (where Parker and Jenelle are staying).
We are hoping to group some people together in house boats so we can save you guys some mulah!!!
We promise these will go quickly so please book as soon as possible!
There are three near-by islands where you can camp - all within a 10 min boat ride from Lindsay Island (where Parker and Jenelle are staying). You have the option of tent camping or oTENTik (safari tent) camping.
There are nearby outhouses for every site however, there is no running water. Showers are taken in the river ... it's revitalizing -- you're going to love it!!
There are LIMITED campsites that you can reserve. Reservations start January 18th, 2017 8am E.S.T.
For those of you preferring the mainland, and the amenities that come with it, there are plenty of hotels, bed and breakfast lodges and VRBOs in and around Gananoque.
