Dwight Gets Bright
Yesterday evening Dwight got together to Light up the Night, turning on the Christmas tree lights and welcoming in the season with Carol singers (including our perennial favourites, the Muskoka Music Men!).
Inside, there were hot drinks, plenty of goodies from the area bakeries and the Friends of the Library, a penny sale, representatives of Family Services from the District, and in general a crush of happy people.
Across the way at the School, the Open House welcomed parents and friends alike, and the children were proud to show off their projects, and present an evening of entertainment.
Congratulations go to the Friends of the Library, and to the hard-working Librarians who make not only our Dwight Library but our entire Community so special. Last summer, they worked hard to bring the Community Garden and Book Nook to completion, and this season they were determined not to let an opportunity pass by to get the entire Community into the Spirit of the Season.
Lights went on all over Dwight. Several of the shops opened up, or stayed open late, with some great Christmas deals on offer. At the Dwight Garden Centre, Santa himself was on hand -- with Linda acting as the "trusty elf" for the evening!
What a lovely start to the season, to see the lights glittering and glowing against the snow! It is the small things, the events like this, that are at the heart of any community, and Dwight, well, you done yourselves proud!
Don't overlook our specials for COUPLES! As well as families and groups, we offer great deals for couples looking to just get away.
You can check our availability on-line. We work hard to keep this current, but it may lag actual bookings. And it may not be 100% accurate...
Christmas is coming ! Bring the kids to the great outdoors (and you as well).
We much prefer to keep the personal touch, and to discuss your booking the 'old-fashioned' way, directly, person to person! This helps us ensure that we've got your booking just the way you want it.

Changing the Season
We are now accepting reservations for two night stays and weekend packages duringOctober -- the fall colours are astonishing, and on our own 600 acre property, there are so many walking trails and lookout views that there's no need to battle traffic into the Park just to see the beauty! Algonquin is always amazing, but during high colour season, best seen mid-week. There are so many other wonderful places around where you can enjoy the autumn without the congestion of the road, and we are happy to direct you to them.
We have great deals during the fall season, for couples, up to small groups of 18 people.
And don't forget Winter -- we've got vacancies for Christmas! We'll provide the tree, and you bring the family.
We've got a fantastic place to gather, enjoy the scenery, relax by a fire, and spend time with family and friends. Whether a quiet couples' getaway, or a family reunion or a club outing , we've got your cottage waiting.
We'd love to hear from you. The experiences our guests have are precious to us. If you have photos you took at Bondi, we'd love to have those as well. You can email them to Nancy at firstname.lastname@example.org

We are very proud of Napster, our tail-painting cat, who uses his lovely artwork to raise money for charities. This lovely little creature passed away July 2015, but left a huge legacy, having raised over $12,000 for various charities through the sale of his artwork. That artwork, through prints and notecards, is still available. Click here to visit Napster's Blog and visit the gallery of his tail-paintings.
Now sold around the world, he was honoured to have his artwork sold around the globe -- he even has a print with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
