Local Moose

While we know we share our forest and surroundings with moose all sorts of wildlife, it's not every day we get to actually see them. That's why we were so excited for our guests -- and ourselves -- to have so many sightings this season.

The highlight was a mother moose and her calf spotted hanging out at the pond for five days straight! Even though we haven't seen them for weeks now, the fresh tracks on the Seguin Trail tell me they're still in the neighbourhood.

Some of us managed to snap some quick photos. Thank you to our guests for sharing theirs!

Spring Fuel & Fun 2017

June will be bustin' out all over! The Fuel & Fun promo from Explorers' Edge is back and it's the best way to make a Spring getaway even better. Book your June jaunt now and get $100 in free gas and goodies!

Just book your getaway by May 30 for a 2-night stay between June 2 and June 30 and you can be 1 of 500 travelers to receive a $50 gas card and $50 worth of vouchers to use-as-cash at participating restaurants, shops and attractions.

We love Fuel & Fun because it lets us give a great gift to our guests -- who doesn't like to get free gas and spending vouchers? -- but also because it lets us showcase a lovely month before the busy summer season gets in to full swing. Whether you're looking for a quiet retreat to recharge your batteries or a few days of hiking, paddling, cycling and exploring, we hope to see you here this June!

Quantities are limited -- first come, first served -- so act quickly to avoid disappointment.

When do you stay?
Any two consecutive nights between June 2 and June 30, 2017

When do you book?
Make your reservation and register for your vouchers (we'll tell you how) by May 30, 2017

What do you get?
$50 gas card plus $50 in spending vouchers to use at participating shops, eateries and attractions during your stay. Of course, you also get two comfortable nights and two delicious breakfasts at Fern Glen Inn.

What's the catch?
There is none! You don't have to "buy one" to "get one" nor spend a minimum amount of money. Consider the free gas and vouchers as an invitation to come explore the quintessential Canadian wilderness just north of the city -- courtesy of Explorers' Edge, our regional tourism organization.

Foxy Neighbour

We've been seeing signs of one local resident for months. All winter we routinely saw fresh tracks in the snow and and the occasional glimpse of orange fur through the trees and we figured out there must be a den in the woods just beyond our back meadow. Our sly neighbour has become quite bold and one March evening as guest sat around the fire pit, the foxy fella sat on a knoll and watched them with open curiosity.

So perhaps it wasn't surprising last week when Jim was out in the back yard and Mr. Fox decided to pay a visit. I like to think he was introducing himself (or herself? We really don't know if our Mr is a Ms!).

Mr. Fox catches a glimpse of Jim...

...decides to take a closer look...

...and closer still.

Cool as a cucumber, he walks right past. Fantastic!
