ALGONQUIN toques

Theresa & Adam's new ALGONQUIN toques from www.norquayco.com.  They also make gorgeous artisan canoe paddles.  Made In Canada.


It's still summer...in Australia!

Hello Theresa, David and Adam,

This is DL from Adelaide, South Australia, writing to you. My dear sister-in-law, EL, has just forwarded to me a lovely email you sent her.  I’d like you to know what a thrill that gave me. In fact, it gave me goose-bumps because, just before opening E’s email, I’d changed the desktop background photo on my computer from the Via Rail cross-Canada train to – wait for it – the Arowhon Pines dining room!!

I loved reading your message, and seeing the photos of the dining room in snow. What a contrast – and what beauty of a very different kind, too.  My stay with you, though brief, was absolutely marvelous, and I enjoyed staying in my beautifully refurbished room in K and E’s cabin. The meals in your dining room were sensational!

I took a series of magical photos of Arowhon Pines at dusk, and am attaching some for you. The first one is the one that I’ve got on my desktop now. I hope you enjoy them.

Warmest regards,
DL

Gorgeous winter photos of Arowhon Pines

Although Arowhon is closed for the winter, some of our staff are still working, renovating the kitchen and cabins – we checked up on them on Monday!   

Arowhon is as pretty as ever, surrounded by a frozen Little Joe Lake and snow covered trees.  On the way back to the city, we talked about how great it would be to invite guests for a day of dog sledding, skating on the lake, and having hot chocolate around the fireplace in the dining room.  We quickly talked ourselves out of it!  For now, our contractors will be the only ones enjoying the spectacular icy views! 

There are many people who visit Algonquin in the snow.  Click http://www.algonquinpark.on.ca/involved/calendar for a list of winter events in the Park.  If you do go, send us your photos!

Closing up Arowhon Pines for 2014

Closing up Arowhon Pines is always bittersweet.

First and foremost is that we will miss your friendly faces. 

We have a long list of jobs to do this fall and estimate being here for most of the winter, as we continue to renovate the rooms and update our kitchen.  Starting tomorrow though, we join the nine to five shift with weekends off (!!!) and look forward to spending some time with our families!   

Thank you for a wonderful, busy season!  Stay in touch!  See you next year!

Love Theresa, David and Adam
And all of us from Arowhon Pines.
