A SPORTSMANS HAVEN
 
(2014 - Spring/Summer Issue)

Writer: ELISABETH SCHMOLL



Lake Huron’s North Channel has long been a boaters’ mecca—and it just got better with Rachelle McConnell’s redo of the 1920s-era Sportsman’s Inn Resort and Marina in Killarney, Ontario.

Since 2008, McConnell has been perfecting her vision for this “fine boutique hotel” that serves discerning landlubbers and boaters in style. “Every year, I add or refurbish elements that increase the inn’s appeal to vacationers who enjoy a secluded place yet still want world-class dining, entertainment and amenities.”

For the 2014 season, five weekly cabins, featuring two bedrooms each, were built on top of the mountain on George Island. And the new Aveda Spa, facing the channel on George Island, makes this a great stop to pamper yourself with a massage, manicure or pedicure.

Unique Services

Boaters in particular relish the food and entertainment and enjoy the option of getting pub food delivered to their boats. They can also watch movies from their decks at the local drive-in theatre, tuning into the sound on their boat radios. If they wish to stretch their legs, they can use the inn’s private hiking trail on George Island.

A boardwalk at the water’s edge allows guests to stroll along the docks and admire the 18- to 30-metre craft from Canada and the U.S. When they want to socialize, they can meet and greet at the pub and outdoor patio overlooking the water. The fine dining experience features dishes by our Canadian executive chef while the 2,000-bottle wine cellar boasts local wines not available elsewhere.
