Welcoming the Fall Season

The kids have headed back to school and soon the leaves will start to change colour. It’s hard to believe, but another summer has flown by and we’re entering into the Fall season! There are many things to love about Fall. The autumn colours are certainly one of them, as the resort transforms into a canvas of gold, red, and orange. We also enter into a season of harvest, cooler days, cozy nights, and travelers seeking a quiet place to unwind.

Summer Highlights

Turtle Wednesdays

Weekly workshops with the Ontario Turtle Conservation Centre (www.ontarioturtle.ca) were a hit! We got to hear about how we can do our part to help turtle conservation efforts, learn about the type of turtles in Ontario, and get up close with turtles currently in the Centre’s care.

Lake Life

Stoney Lake really is a gem in the Kawarthas. Cooling off on hot summer days was made that much easier with swimming, jumping off the water trampoline, grabbing a kayak for a paddle, or tubing with Ben. We’re glad to see guests enjoy life on the lake, taking a break from city life and the hustle and bustle.

Delicious Dining

Chefs Kyle and Mandy (along with our culinary team) hit it out of the park with fresh, delicious dining at both The Boathouse and Mount Julian (shout out to our yummy breakfast buffet in 1885). From soaking up the sun with a beer at The Boathouse patio or indulging in a 7 course tasting dinner at Mount Julian, there were lots of happy, full bellies. As we come into the harvest season, we can’t wait to serve up more local farm-to-table food for you.

Fall Plans

Fall Recreation Programs

View the schedule here! This kicked in on September 3 and is in effect until October 6 (at which point we switch to our Winter schedule). While things take a bit of a slower pace, there are still plenty of activities going on such as fishing, kayaking, bonfires, and our daily farm tours.

Art Tour

Fall means it’s studio time here in the Kawarthas, and there are lots of unique painters, sculptors, photographers, and more to be discovered. We put together a list of some local art tours that may be of interest. You can use Viamede as your home base to go out and explore.

Thanksgiving

It may still seem a ways away, but Thanksgiving is on Monday, October 14. We put on a Thanksgiving buffet featuring our own farm-raised turkeys. For you, this means no cooking and no dishes! Read more here about Thanksgiving at Viamede.

Our Fall rates are in effect from Labour Day until Thanksgiving.

 


Weddings at Viamede

Weddings are such a special event, but require a lot of decisions as well! Choosing a wedding venue is a big one, because it plays a key role in your theme, look, and feel. For couples looking for a unique setting, we’re highlighting why Viamede Resort could be a contender as the setting for your dream wedding.

Intimate

Viamede is the perfect venue to host up to 80 people comfortably. Rustic, waterfront, cozy, welcoming; this is a place where you and your guests can relax and focus on enjoying the big day.

Flexible

Our team will work with you to plan the wedding you want. Whether you want an outdoor wedding by the lake, an indoor wedding in our historic chapel, certain table configurations, seating, food concerns… you name it, we’re here to help. We’ve had live bands, Spotify playlists, and DJs, tuxedos with flip flops, Hawaiian themed weddings, and everything in between. Your unique vision will shine on your special day.

Straightforward & Transparent

When we quote a price, that’s the price. No hidden fees, no surprises, no weird add-ons. We are very transparent about what is and isn’t included (more details on what’s included here). We don’t upcharge for little things like wanting to borrow a projector or setting up chairs.

Inclusive

We only host one wedding per weekend, so you don’t need to worry about being kicked out early because another wedding party is coming in. This means you’ll get our full attention to work with your preferences.

 

Want to chat or take a tour of the resort? Shoot us an email at events@viamede.com (don’t worry, no high pressure sales-y pitches here – we hate those too). For more information about weddings at Viamede, click here.


The Case for Guest Rooms

Understandably, our cottages get snapped up pretty quickly during the summer months. We get it – the private deck, having a small kitchenette for cooking, putting the kids in the second bedroom so you have some time to yourself. Today, we’re going to make a case for why a guest room may surprise you.

1. Waterfront views

It may seem like the cottages get you the best views, but many of our rooms and suites have private balconies overlooking Stoney Lake. If you’re on the second floor of the main building, you get a really nice look out over the pool, docks, and wide vantage of the lake to spot loons.

2. You can still BBQ

That’s right! For guests who like firing up the grill to make their own BBQ lunch/dinner, The Porch Kitchen has two BBQs, picnic tables, utensils/dishes… pretty much everything you need to put together a delicious picnic. If you don’t want to do a grocery run, we also have a BBQ menu so we’ll provide all the fixin’s as well.

3. Breakfast is closer

Our fresh breakfast buffet in 1885 is that much closer when you’re staying in a guest room (as is our all-day coffee and tea station). DIY waffles? Enough said.

4. Stay close together… or far apart!

Whether you want to get adjoining rooms with friends/family or you want something quiet and secluded, our rooms offer a wide variety so that we can best accommodate what you’re looking for on your vacation.

5. No missing out

Essentially, we just want you to know that staying in a guest room doesn’t mean you’re missing out from the full experience. Both our cottages and guest rooms are cozy, comfortable, and get you access to all of our resort amenities and recreation activities.

 


Hiking Trails in the Kawarthas

The Kawarthas region offers a wide variety of hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty. We’ve put together a list of just some of the local trails that are well worth a drive.

Stony Lake Trails

From the Mount Julian Kitchen

by Mandy Weaver, Culinary Chef

And so, with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.

– F. Scott Fitzgerald

Spring and summer seem to have blended into one and descended upon us in a rush and I, for one, am happy to welcome it in.

Greetings from the Mount Julian kitchen. I feel that it is high time I introduce myself. My name is Mandy and I will be cooking for you today. Taking the freshest ingredients I can either forage myself, gather from the garden (with Bob’s blessing, of course!), or source from local providers. Preparing and assembling said ingredients into a coherent dish for your sensory pleasure.

In my first couple weeks at Viamede, there were some adjustments made into my new surroundings: new relationships built, new foraging locations sought out, and new menu ideas blooming into existence. The North Kawartha area has proven to be a fascinating location, flush with much familiar vegetation as well as a few ‘new to me’ items ripe for the avid forager to discover. I always keep in mind the sustainability of the item foraged. Thus far in my short time at Viamede Resort, we have collected, frozen, pickled, preserved, dehydrated and utilised spruce tips, ramps (also known as wild leeks), lilac flowers, chive (so much chive), daylilies, as well as many other wild flowers. Now, berry season has started!

Bob the Gardener and I go for regular tours of the gardens to see what is usable now, and what I can start planning to use in the coming weeks. He’s grown oodles of lettuce varieties and herbs galore. The carrots, beets, and radishes are just at the baby stage, which pair perfectly with fish or make an enticing amuse bouche, and, don’t tell him, but I’ve even started getting into his peas.

I still have much to discover in the field of local farmers (mind the pun), however, Buckhorn Berry Farm has had a phenomenal strawberry season. Fingers crossed I make it out one more time before the berries are all gone.

Having been born and raised in Norfolk County on the shores of Lake Erie, farming, foraging, preserving and freezing has always been a big part of my life. To now be in a position that, though far from home, brings me back to my roots, I feel quite blessed. I am grateful to my parents for providing me with a solid foundation in sustainably harvesting from the land, as well as the Viamede Team for inviting me in and providing me this opportunity to expand my knowledge, while also pursuing my career and living my dream all at the same time.

Signing off for now,

Mandy

Viamede’s Summer Bucket List

Summer is officially here (anyone else ready to say so long to that cold and rainy spring?)! School’s out, long weekends await, and cottaging season is on. We put together our top 5 picks to check off your summer bucket list – Viamede style.

Feed Farm Pigs

Guests can go to the Viamede Farm at any time to visit with our turkeys, ducks, chickens, and quail. If you come along for a farm tour in the afternoon (part of our recreation schedule), you can help feed our pigs! We’ll also tell you all about how our farm works, where eggs are collected, and let you cuddle with a silkie chicken (they are very silky).

Feed Pigs at Viamede Farm; located at Viamede Resort in the Kawarthas

Join a Wild Food Hunt

Come along with staff for a foraging expedition and learn more about how wild food can be used in your kitchen. With things like cattails, chives, wild berries, and greens, what we find might just be in tonight’s dinner menu. For the foodies, we also recommend a tasting at Mount Julian and one of our other activities like Pickling or Bread Making Class.

Cannonball into Stoney Lake

There’s nothing like a classic Canadian summer of enjoying life on the lake. While you can kick back and relax by the pool (no judgement here), we’ve included this on our bucket list because taking a big leap off the water trampoline and cannon-balling into the lake is too much fun.

Family friendly resort; Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas; Viamede Resort

Go Cycling

If you’ve brought your own wheels or want to borrow one of ours, there are some neat places to check out by bicycle! You can stick to the back roads and explore along Stoney Lake (Eels Creek, about a 9 km ride, has a great hiking trail). Head back up to Highway 28 (which has paved shoulders), and pedal to Burleigh Falls for a picnic by the lock.

Try Something New

Whether you’ve never fished, played disc golf, gone stand-up paddleboarding, or been tubing, we’ll help you say you did something totally new this summer.

 


A Newbie Goes Boating

by Nicole Rogerson, Marketing Manager

I finally had the chance to experience the joy that is boating on Stoney Lake.

Here’s the thing: I know absolutely nothing about boats. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been on a motorboat. Usually, my idea of boating involves paddling in a kayak or canoe.

On a recent Monday morning, I came into work and settled in at my desk to check emails and catch up from the weekend. We’d just gotten some silkie chicks who were calling the lobby their temporary home, so I grabbed my camera to go shoot a few pics (and say “awwww” repeatedly over the cute little balls of fluff). So far, a fairly typical day. Ben then asked if I’d yet been out on the lake. After answering no, this led to grabbing my hat and sunglasses and trotting down to the dock. Of all days to decide to wear a skirt to work!

As we headed out, I snapped some shots of the resort from the water which slowly shrank away out of sight. My head was on a constant swivel as we cruised towards Upper Stoney. We caught sight of turtles sunning themselves on rocks, an osprey swooping out of the trees, and peeped at the cottages along the shore. Ben pointed out spots where rock lurked just below the surface of the lake. These are easy to miss and can catch unfamiliar boaters off guard (Stoney Lake does its name justice!).

Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas

We went past East Syndicate Island, protected by the Kawartha Land Trust and the largest undeveloped island on the lake. After seeing Big Duck Pond (a very good fishing spot, according to Ben) and coasting through a narrow channel which I wouldn’t have thought passable, we headed back.

Boating Stoney Lake

What a glorious experience!

The water sparkling in the sunshine and the wind tossing your hair around. Admiring the stunning combination of rock and forest, not even sure if you’re looking at island or mainland. It reminded me of the 1000 Islands, with cottages perched on tiny islands and bends leading to small coves and bays.

Stoney Lake in the Kawarthas

On returning to Viamede, I grabbed some shots of the tin boats which are newly available for guests to rent. Back on dry land, Ben said: “Anytime you need water shots, you could just grab a tinny”. I looked dubiously at the boat. If I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been on a motorboat, you can imagine how many times I’ve been at the helm of one (zero, it’s zero). Something tells me that, by the end of summer, that number is going to increase.

 

Rent one of our tinny boats or go on a boating excursion with Ben as part of our summer recreation schedule.

by Jill Persson

It seems like it’s been a long couple of weeks since the last three-day weekend, doesn’t it? Between back to school nuttiness, bosses coming back from vacation and the inevitable return to a faster pace, it doesn’t feel like we’ve had a minute to breathe!
