A Little Piece of Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this little bit of paradise in Gananoque, Ontario. Beginning our days with morning coffee on the patio overlooking the river and ending our days luxuriating in the hot tub on the patio was truly paradisal. The cozy apartment was equipped with everything needed for our week long vacation. And the bed was oh, so comfortable, and the linens were lovely. Our host and hostess, Michael and Elizabeth, were so gracious and so very helpful with wonderful recommendations for pubs, restaurants, museums, theater, shopping, open markets and festivals-- amazingly all found in this delightful town of Gananoque. We highly recommend this rental and hope to return next year.

Ganonoque - Relaxation Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We decided to go to Canada this year for vacation and are so glad we did. Mike and Elizabeth are the nicest hosts and their property is lovely. The apartment is in a perfect location and set up beautifully with everything you need. The completely upgraded interior is lovely (one caveat is the bathroom is tiny - so if you have mobility issues it might be an issue - we did fine!). There is everything you need in every room! The patio with swing and hot tub has a wonderful view and is so relaxing. The other patio with table and grill perfectly situated by the kitchen! Super private. But close to everything, you can walk to downtown, the seaway, boat tours, pubs and restaurants and more! The hosts are helpful and cheery. The spot in town is lovely and on the river - there is always something to see and watch. No need to travel around - we hiked, went boating, relaxed and hit most parks in the area! Check out Rock Dunder, the amazing lock system and of course the seeway! Thanks Mike and Elizabeth for a wonderful time!
