OUR " ISLAND MILL GETAWAY" is the perfect spot for rest and relaxation and so close to everything the area has to offer.
Our circa 1829 limestone home was originally The Lonsdale Grist Mill. We're on an island in the Salmon River between 2 waterfalls accessible by one lane bridges on and off the island. We're just 2 hours east of Toronto and conveniently located between the Prince Edward County Sandbanks and Wineries and Kingston and The Thousand Islands, conveniently located to all our area has to offer as well as our property offering boating, swimming and cycling all included in your stay. PROVINCIAL PARK PASS IS INCLUDED FOR MINIMUM ONE DAY.
OUR COUNTRY SUITE OFFERS YOU:
A beautiful, second story, self-contained suite with a European inspired vintage decor. Boats and bicycles, abundant wildlife and gardens and all just 6 minutes from the 401 hwy and 12 minutes from Prince Edward County.
You will enjoy a lovely, large, comfortable suite with a self-contained kitchenette which includes a small fridge, microwave, toaster/convection oven, induction hot plate, french press coffee maker, tea, coffee, bottled water, all pots and pans, utensils, etc for light cooking. The suite has a French bedroom set with a queen size bed and a Tempurpedic memory foam mattress with top quality bedding, just perfect for falling asleep to the sound of the waterfalls outside your window. Toiletries, bath robes and towels are provided. The Country Suite has antiques, oak floors, carpeting and hand sewn silk lampshades.
SPRING AND SUMMER AT THE MILL:
You have full access to our patio by the waterfalls, kayaks, a canoe, peddleboat and touring bicycles during the warmer months and a riverside hot tub under the stars all at no extra charge. With waterfront on three sides, you'll likely want to spend some time on the river. Boats are provided from May until Thanksgiving weekend. Barbeque, dine and relax on padded swivel chairs under our covered pergola on the outdoor patio by the river.
Enjoying nature is the main occupation here. Lying under a willow tree beside the waterfalls, paddling up the river, or touring the countryside by bicycle can really eat up a day. You can also enjoy a refreshing swim in the waterfalls. A waiver must be signed prior to using the facilities due to the inherent dangers associated with being near the water.
We live in the very picturesque historic hamlet of Lonsdale which has been the subject of many artists and photographers. The river is part of an historic canoe route and many enthusiasts brave the rapids in May. The river quietens come June for relaxing paddles. It is the river that gives this place it's magical vibe and brings the wildlife in abundance for our pleasure. Great Blue Herons, Song Birds, Eagles, Otters, Beavers, Muskrats, Geese, Ducks, Swans, Turtles, song birds and many others are all happy to call Lonsdale home or stop by to say hi. You never know who is going to drop by next. The grounds are full of flowers and birds and the sound of the waterfalls makes this an ideal spot to just kick back and enjoy.
FREE minimum ONE DAY PROVINCIAL PARKS PASS INCLUDED SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY.
We encourage you to bring your own food and prepare light meals in your private kitchenette, as the closest restaurant is 6 km away and there are no stores in the immediate area. There are three grocery stores in Napanee , a 20 minute drive east or Belleville, a 25 minute drive west or in Picton, 30 minutes south. You may also use the outdoor barbeque. If you do not wish to cook, there is a pleasant diner just 6 km up the road that serves Greek and Canadian food and also does take out and is a good option for a decent cooked breakfast nearby. There are many nice restaurants and eateries within Napanee, Prince Edward and Belleville/Kingston areas. Regular and specialty teas, french press coffee, bottled water, milk, cream, sugar and honey are always available in your room. We also provide the little things for cooking that are difficult to transport such as cooking oil and spices.

Kingston is also just a short 35 minute drive East and the town of Napanee is 19 minutes East where there are major grocery stores and chain restaurants and a pleasant downtown shopping area. The town of Belleville is 25 minutes West and has a nice shopping mall and quite a lot of restaurants and festivals during the summer months.

About the owner: We are a recently retired couple who love sharing our unique property with others.
Why the Owner Chose Marysville, ON, Canada:
We bought this property when we were young and naiive. It has taken over years and the journey, like all journeys has been difficult at times but very rewarding. The Lonsdale Mill has reached a potential even we did not believe possible in the beginning. The beautiful Salmon River with the abundance of wildlife and the lulling of the waterfalls is what keeps us here. Even though we're not located anywhere in particular, we're so close to everything. A short drive in 4 directions takes us to many towns and cities. We just can't imagine ourselves anywhere else.
The Unique Benefits at this Mill:
Opportunity to stay in an historic mill on an island. Three types of watercraft and touring bicycles for your enjoyment at no extra charge. Outdoor, all season hot tub under the stars. Swimming in the waterfalls. Dining, reading and relaxing riverside. Great opportunities for viewing birds and wildlife, such as otters, beavers, turtles, great blue herons and songbirds. A true getaway experience in a scenic and historic setting.
