Paradise on the Pickerel River

Located just 10 minutes from Port Loring, Ontario on the stunning Pickerel River, Pine Grove Resort Cottages is the perfect spot for folks hoping to disconnect from their normal, hectic lives to instead experience a rewarding visit to the great Canadian wilderness.

Owned and operated by the Chambers family for over 40 years, the Pine Grove Resort property spans over 250 acres of stunning woodlands. Charming cottages to call your own during your stay sit among towering forests and along the shores of this historic waterway. Known for the amazing fishing and boating opportunities, and with access to over 40 km of boating on the Pickerel River system, the resort also has fantastic hiking trails on site. It’s truly a place where one can disconnect from the modern world to instead reconnect with the epic natural landscape.

Pine Grove offers a range of accommodation options to suit any guest or group. You and your family can book one of eight private cottages set either on the water or with a river view, each with two or three bedrooms, and a three or four piece bathroom. These cottages come with fully-supplied kitchens and outdoor barbecues, and they feature comfortable queen, double and single beds.

For those looking for a little more seclusion, consider booking “The Farmhouse.” Sleeping up to eight guests, this unique building is located a short walk from the main resort for added privacy, and features an outdoor picnic area with a fire pit. (It’s also a four-season rental so it’s perfect for a winter getaway, and sledders will enjoy direct access to OFSC snowmobile trails.)

A favourite with honeymoon couples, the resort’s luxury chalet has its own private driveway and 500 feet of shoreline on the river, and comes with a motorized boat to use. Other upgrades include a wood fireplace, a gazebo with a hot tub, and a large deck with a barbeque.

Additionally, the resort has three campsites for those wanting an even more outdoorsy experience (great for sleeping under the magnificent stars), as well as their “mini cabin” that features one bed in a sleeping loft (but which also boasts all the amenities of the larger cottages).

Pine Grove is a favourite destination for all types of travellers, from families wanting to bond to stressed business executives seeking to truly go off the corporate grid. Beach bonfires, weenie and marshmallow roasts, swimming, tubing, fishing, boating and more – there’s plenty to do without ever being busy at all.

Nearby Loring-Restoule has much to offer if you go off the dock as well, including the trails of the Loring Deer Yard, Jake’s Place or Roxie’s Diner for great eats and good company, the weekly Argyle Farmer’s Market, Board’s Honey Farm, and the charming SunDog Gallery, which is conveniently located at the resort.
