The Perils of Being Married to a Writer

"It’s the remoteness, the quiet, the space – mental, physical, emotional – that makes you feel like writing. So after lunch one day, I told Arnie that I was going to sit on the covered dining hall verandah that overlooks the lake, and work on my new novel. He said he was going to take one of the two small Hobies out for a sail: he’d done that the afternoon before, and he’d enjoyed it. Today the lake was a bit rougher and it looked like rain, and I told him to be careful. 'I'm too young to be a widow', I said, giving him a kiss goodbye. I assured him I’d keep my eye on him." -- M. W. Walters

The Simon Family

The Simon family dug up cheques payable to Arowhon Pines for their deposit… and payment for their visit here in 1977!  Although the rates may have increased (yikes!), the Simon’s come every July...

Calling All Guests!!!!

We love ALL our guests, but there’s a special place in our hearts for those of you who have been coming for decades. You notice every little change that we make.  There are Arowhon stories from the past.  Your kids grow and no longer order the chicken fingers and fries!  Soon, we meet the boyfriends and girlfriends, (some of whom only make it here once), then the spouses, and then the most important next generation of Arowhon guests!   

We thought it would be fun to call on all our guests to send us your memories from the past - a copy of an invoice or receipt, an old photo from your vacation here, a matchbook or pen, an old brochure – anything from your stay at Arowhon from years gone by. Of course like most things - the older, the better!

We would happily post your photos and treasure your information and keep it for our records forever!

Love Theresa, David, Adam, Edward – long time staff at Arowhon

The Skoczylas family, summer 2012, who have been coming to Arowhon since the 1980s!
