Begin your Getaway by checking in to the Bayside Inn just steps from Parry Sound’s inner harbour – gateway to the Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve. Friday evening we’ll enjoy our famous Georgian Bay Gin smash with a gourmet cheese selection and settle in for a social. Saturday morning starts with a wonderful breakfast by innkeeper Jeff Quathamer, followed by a gently paced kayak tour with White Squall. Using stable tandem kayaks, guides will teach you all you need to know to paddle along the shores of the Sound. As you coast along, staff will talk about the area’s indigenous roots and the town’s early railroad and logging days. Enjoy a hearty shore lunch and take some time to sit and gaze, or dive into, the clear blue waters of the Bay. Next up, we head over to Jessica Vergeer Studios to have a go at painting what Tom Thompson made famous ~ the windswept pines of Georgian Bay. Sunday, after gourmet coffee and breakfast, we’ll meet at the Parry Sound Community Apiary to discover the secret life of bees and sample local honey. We’ll be done about noon for you to start back home. Call 705 342 5324 for more info.
