Welcome to the enchanting world of the Gananoque Inn & Spa, where history and hospitality intertwine to create an unforgettable experience in the heart of the 1000 Islands.

There is a new generation of caretakers for the inn. Mukesh and Ashwina Patel purchased the Gananoque Inn & Spa in June 2017 and look forward to continuing the tradition of a historic inn while adding some well-deserved upgrades to this property. The purchase of the Gananoque Inn was influenced by various factors, including its historic charm, picturesque location, the potential for hospitality business, and personal passion for the area.

Founded in the 1870s by George and Charles Taylor as the Gananoque Carriage Works, this charming inn has undergone a remarkable transformation over the years. What was once a hub of craftsmanship for wooden carriages is now a cherished retreat for those seeking respite and relaxation.

Step into the lobby and see the fireplace as it casts an embracing glow that beckons you to unwind and enjoy the timeless elegance. In the summer, the grounds come alive with a riot of colors as flowers bloom in meticulously tended gardens, flower boxes, and hanging baskets.

What’s the best room in the inn? The Patels say that’s Room 108. “It holds a special place in our hearts as it sits right on the edge of the dock, offering an unparalleled view of the enchanting 1000 Islands and the majestic St. Lawrence River,” they reveal. “The picturesque scenery from this room is truly breathtaking, immersing guests in the natural beauty of the surroundings. The gentle lapping of the waves against the shore creates a soothing soundtrack, enhancing the overall experience of tranquillity and relaxation.”

It’s no wonder Room 108 is cherished by many for its stunning vistas and serene ambiance.

The Patels have embraced the legacy of the past while ushering in a new era of modern comforts and amenities. With their passion for hospitality and commitment to excellence, they are dedicated to ensuring that every guest feels truly special, whether here for a weekend getaway or a once-in-a-lifetime celebration.

In addition to its luxurious accommodations, the Gananoque Inn offers a range of amenities designed to enhance the guest experience. Indulge in a sumptuous meal at Watermark Restaurant, or a hearty bite at Musky Jake’s Tap and Grill, where locally sourced ingredients and innovative culinary techniques come together to create unforgettable dining experiences.

Relax and unwind in the comfortable confines of the lounge, where crackling fires and handcrafted cocktails set the stage for intimate conversations and cherished memories.
