1. The Island Mill Getaway

This is the definition of oasis. Unlike any other place to stay in the area, The Island Mill Getaway is simply that: a magical place to escape and soak in life’s pleasures. Nestled on an island in the Salmon River, this one-of-a-kind stone mill dates back to the early 1800s and is waiting to welcome you.

2. Beaver Pod Lodge

This glamper space is a funky little waterfront sanctuary perfect for couples or solo travellers. Start your stay off right with a complimentary bottle of wine and treats, too.

Access to kayaks, floating chairs and retro bikes in the warmer months, as well as a firepit and romantic indoor fireplace heater all year.
