A heated swimming pool, open from late May until early September, is a proven magnet for many of our guests. While soaking in the water is appealing for many, basking in the sunshine on one of the poolside deck chairs with a cool drink and a good book is just the right amount of exercise for others.

Horseshoes and shuffleboard are available for your enjoyment.

The wildlife that shows up on site is a perennial favourite. Friendly deer, rabbits, foxes and many varieties of birds create year round photo opportunities. One of the best vantage points is often from the patio chair on your private deck.

With the setting of the sun, your deck is transformed into a place for quiet conversation while admiring the celestial show overhead and possibly even the colorful northern lights. The call of a loon or the hoot of an owl completes the magical mood.
