One of our special places to visit which is not in the Finger Lakes but is in the 1000 Islands area of Ontario, Canada. The 1000 Islands area is just a pleasant three and a half hour drive from the Finger Lakes of NY. We just returned home from our third visit to the Islandview Inn B&B in Gananoque, Ontario. If you love living along the water, boating, fishing, and exploring the waters of the St. Lawrence River, you’re going to fall in love with the little town of Gananoque, Ontario.
Large tour boats depart from Gananoque daily to take vacationers on a water tour of the 1000 Island area. The IslandView Inn B&B (click here) is located at 195 Market St. Its location is secluded from the tourists but within easy walking distance to the marina, the Joel Stone Heritage Park, the boat tours, and some very fine restaurants in Gananoque.
The Inn is owned by Lisa Wells and is a lovely renovated turn-of-the-century Victorian home that has been turned into a B&B by Lisa with the help of many skilled tradesmen who live in the 1000 Islands area. Lisa takes great pride in operating the Inn herself, making fancy breakfasts which delight everyone who comes, and keeping the place immaculate. Staying at the Islandview Inn for a couple of days is a great Finger Lakes getaway!
