Chebeague Island Inn
Located in the Casco Bay region of Maine, Chebeague Island Inn has been a landmark destination since the 1880s and is one of the few remaining inns that originally dotted the New England coast. Just a 25-minute ferry ride from Portland and 1.5 north of Boston, the Inn welcomes seasonal travelers with 21 individually designed guest rooms, each tastefully restored and detailed with the work of local artists and artisans.
A summer paradise, the Inn maintains traditions yet innovates with experiences such as guided yoga on the Lower Lawn overlooking the ocean, Front Lawn games from corn hole to bocce, water activities and private boat charters. The Inn’s wedding and event venues and seasonally curated culinary offerings are destinations themselves.
Port Cunnington Lodge
This historic Muskoka resort nestled on the shore of beautiful Lake of Bays has been welcoming guests for more than 120 years. Spread out on twenty-two acres of scenic landscape, a wide range of chalets and cottages provide peace and privacy on over 1,800 feet of natural shoreline. Lodging accommodations suit families and groups of all sizes from cozy one-bedroom options to five-bedroom chalets with modern amenities coupled with exceptional housekeeping services.
Days are filled immersed in nature with a host of outdoor activities from hiking and paddling to swimming and golf at the internationally renowned Bigwin Island course. Certified wellness experts are on-site to help guests unwind offering a host of salon services, RMT massage, and yoga and Pilates sessions.
