This was our second year at Mersey River Chalets and we absolutely love it and can't wait to go back in Sept/Oct. It is an amazing outdoor getaway with all the amenities. They have canoes, kayaks, swimming, basketball, tennis, a beautiful boardwalk and a restaurant. Kejimkujik National Park is also only 5 kms away. The staff are lovely, I really can't say enough about how wonderful they are.
We stayed at one of the large chalets for 2 nights. These chalets are perfect! They have everything you need: dishes, appliances, towels, firewood, woodstove, 2 bedrooms and a beautiful front porch overlooking the Mersey River. It's all the outdoor adventure you need with a cozy place to sleep :)
The kayaks and canoes are there for unlimited use and no extra charge. The lake and river make a beautiful canoe/kayak trip where you can see all kinds of birds, turtles and other wildlife. The property is tranquill and our stay there was so relaxing - exactly what the 2 of us needed with our busy schedules.
We did a ton of kayaking/canoeing and relaxing at the Mersey River. We went to Keji for an afternoon to do a longer kayak adventure.
I would STRONGLY recommend this place to anyone, it is pet friendly, wheelchair accessible (the WHOLE place!) and a great place to bring kids. It truly is a hidden gem in our beautiful province, we intend to go several times a year since it is open all year round.
As a sidenote: they have a cat that lives there, she is 12 years old and her name is Magic. She is sweet and may come to visit you :) As cat lovers, we quite enjoy her company while we are in Mersey River!!
