With Love from Arowhon

Posted by theresa on October 13, 2013

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Tomorrow we will be closing the gates after another season.  It's a good time to count our blessings.

Thank you beautiful Algonquin Park.

Thank you Little Joe Lake sunrises, mists and sunsets.

Thank you for the chance encounters with wildlife - moose, beavers, otters, herons, turtles, the Arowhon Road fox, the birth and rearing of the family of loons, fall grey jays eating from our hands.

Thank you monarch butterfly whom we saw magically transform from a little blue caterpillar.

Thank you staff - always polite, gracious, hardworking and caring, who genuinely love being here.  We could not have asked for a better group of men and women.

Finally, thank you to the best guests in the world.  We hope that you know that you are more than just past of our business.  Many of you take the time to tell us how we can improve and share your ideas and thoughts.  You are great huggers, and as happy as we are to catch up with you when you arrive, we are equally as sad to see you leave.  Thank you.  Until next season...

With love from Arowhon

Autumn Photos at Arowhon Pines - The fall leaves are peaking!

Posted by theresa on September 24, 2013

 

Arowhon mornings have been chilly, misty and gorgeous - I think I took a hundred photos just this morning.  The days are sunny with temperatures reaching 22 degrees this week, perfect for canoeing, kayaking and hiking.  There were three otters in the bog at the Crossroads and the beavers have been very active.  Did I mention that the fall colours are spectacular?!!!

Bring your cameras!

Amusing OUT OF OFFICE: AUTOMATIC REPLY

Posted by admin on September 7, 2013

Here is an amusing OUT OF OFFICE: AUTOMATIC REPLY that a guest sent to all his emails:

"I will be along the lakes, rivers and forests of our Canadian National Parks for the next week.  Sadly, there is no internet, telephone, fax, iAnything out there.  There is a trading post somewhere with a computer, but it will be used very sparingly."

Cheers to a truly UNPLUGGED Algonquin vacation! (Applause)

Peaceful Arowhon Pines

Posted by theresa on September 2, 2013

Something happened today between lunch and dinner.  

The noise level dropped , as did our occupancy. Trippers packed their gear and headed home.  Golden rod and asters are in bloom.  Some maple trees have already fully changed colour.  There are fewer hummingbirds on the verandah.  The baby loons are teenagers now and think they know everything about life.  

Peace and quiet has returned to the trails and lakes.  

If this is YOUR time of the season, grab your sweater and see you around the fireplace.

Butterfly Garden

Posted by admin on July 21, 2013

We have recently registered the grounds at Arowhon Pines as a monarch butterfly waystation, with www.monarchwatch.com.

We will be launching the start of butterfly tagging season on Monday, August 5th, 2013, at our annual 100 Mile Challenge Barbecue.  Our goal in the next few months is to to tag as many butterflies as we can - and if/when "our" butterflies arrive in Mexico, we will be sent an email confirmation!

The new garden is up by the tennis courts and has both attractor and nesting plants.  It will grow bigger and more beautiful every year!

Hope to see you soon!

Storm Watch Algonquin

Posted by theresa on July 19, 2013

Storms have knocked out power and our telephone lines.  We'll be making occasional trips down the road to check on phone messages, but the best way to contact us is by email - resort@arowhonpines.ca.

Despite the storm, guests are enjoying the cooler temperatures and romantic meals by candlelight.
