Overview

Bring a friend and enjoy a hazy, lazy paddling weekend in Stone Lodge. This laid back, free and easy weekend is perfect for a Girls Weekend Away! Gain confidence in canoes and kayaks with other ladies in this weekend. Eileen will review basic canoe and kayak strokes, followed by a lazy paddle to the far side of the lake. No experience is necessary. Paddlers of all levels are welcome, but must be comfortable swimming in deep water. If you would rather stay closer to shore, enjoy free time hiking, swimming, sunbathing or simply relaxing. We will share Communal Meals that we prepare together in Stone Lodge. BYO adult beverages and Social Hour snacks to share. We will stay in Stone Lodge and the Beaver Brook tent platforms, Choose to stay in either a newly renovated cabin or a Tent Platform.
