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.
