Blinkbonnie Harbour Inn *****

Clarion Inn and Conference Center

50 Main Street
Gananoque, Ontario

For many years we wanted to stay at the Blinkbonnie Inn, but were always leary of non-chain hotels. Clarion bought out the Inn in 2007 and gave it a makeover, so we planned a two night get-away in August and loved the location as it is much closer to the waterfront than other hotels we have stayed at in Gananoque.

MacNeil's Landing Restaurant *****

790 King Street East
Gananoque, Ontario

Gananoque is one of our favorite little towns, thus our excuse to spend a night while passing through on a trip back to the states. On my big move to Canada from the states, MacNeil's Landing was the restaurant we had dinner at the night my husband and I got engaged, so it has always been a favorite of ours. MacNeil's has changed ownership since our first vist and has greatly improved. READ REVIEW

Highway 401 heading west, approaching Kingston, Ontario

If your traveling through Eastern Ontario, you are sure to travel on the 401 at one point or another. For some interesting facts on the 401 be sure to read Highway 401--The Story which was totally amazing. It's one of the pages from John Shragge's THE ROAD SCHOLAR and by reading this you will truely understand the great undertaking of this lengthy and massive highway system. I remember as a child driving on the 1000 Island Parkway and recall the 401 being built, little did I know, until I read this article, that the parkway was intended to be part of the 401 and instead of expanding the parkway to 4 lanes, they re-routed it to save the beauty of it. I'm so glad they did! The land that was dedicated to the other 2 lanes became the well known bicycle path on the parkway.
