There are many occasions where the gift of relaxation and pampering would be appreciated. Since Mother’s Day & Father’s Day is fast approaching this year give your parents a gift that will allow them to relax. One way you can make sure they get treated like royalty is to send them to an inn & spa. This is a gift they will love, especially after a hard week of work.
Might I suggest you plan their getaway to the historic Gananoque Inn, that over looks the St. Lawrence River and the old town pier in Gananoque, Ontario. Gananoque is located on the St. Lawrence River in the heart of the 1000 Islands.
The Gananoque Inn History
“The Gananoque Inn & Spa has been welcoming discerning guests for more than 100 years. The Inn was originally built as a carriage factory in the 1870s,by George and Charles Taylor. A child’s cutter built on the premises, is on display in the Inn lobby. The inn remained under the ownership of the Brockville Carriage Company until march 1906 when Mr. Archibald Welsh of Montreal became the first private owner of the Inn. On Friday, April 5, 1907 a disastrous fire left one third of the hotel in smoldering ruins. The Welsh family continued to operate the hotel until September 1927, when the business was purchased by Ford McCarney.
