polar fleece lined kayaks recommended

the old mill at Queensborough
Queensborough, Ontario has quite the reputation - for hospitality mixed with great whitewater kayaking - even on what promises to be a cool damp April weekend.The village participates enthusiastically in the Marmora and area Canoe and Kayak Festival (M.A.C.Fest), to be held this year on April 6 and 7th. Folks open their Black River-side properties to villagers and locals who paddle the river in its spring enthusiasm. And if that's not enough, once you arrive in the village (making a grand entrance over the dam pictured at left), the villagers offer yummy food, including their famous home-made pies.

the millpond - will look more inviting than this April 6/7
Here's a link to some video of kayakers arriving at the millpond last year. They look hungry don't they?

the old Thompson place (1845)

For more information, community boosters Elaine and Lud Kapusta welcome your calls at 613-473-1458. And while you're in the village, have a look at their superb Georgian/Neo-classical house, overlooking the millpond.
