This has been the best year yet for moose sightings! While the Loring-Restoule region is mostly known for our white tailed deer, we do also have frequent sightings of moose. Our guests have enjoyed their encounters and often send us pictures of these majestic animals. When you visit our region, don't forget your camera or smart phone, you never know what could pop up when walking on our nature trails or driving along Hwy 522.
We have a new venture at Pine Grove Resort. Hilary is turning her house on Davis Drive in the town of Port Loring into a B&B. The house & property needed a lot of work to spruce it up. We are currently still in the middle of renovations and expect it to open in September. This quaint Bed & Breakfast will have 2 rooms available, for 1 night or longer stays. 1 bedroom has a double bed with shared bath, and the second room has a queen size bed with the option of ensuite bath or shared.
Breakfast will be provided via voucher to Jakes Place Restaurant around the corner from the B&B, (within walking distance). Coffee, tea, and fresh baking will be on site.

Spring comes later in the Loring-Restoule region. The ice huts are off the lake, but there are still some avid snowmobilers on the trails. 2 days ago we had a bit of a thaw, and snow got slushy. Last evening we had a flurry and temperatures dropped. One moment spring is in sight, and the next we are deposited right back into the thick of winter. We are gearing up for opening Pine Grove for the season...so much to do when winter releases its icy grip on the land. If you like to photograph wildlife, spring can be an amazing opportunity, while you may not have summers bold beauty, the wildlife viewing opportunities are exceptional. Be careful driving on Hwy 522 as the deer and moose are moving close to the highway to enjoy new growth and the leftover remnants of road salt.
Many of you know we have a new puppy at Pine Grove. Hilary has a Doberman, named Cash. He seems to double in size on a daily basis...Martha (our Fox Terrier) and Cash are fast friends and it will be a joy to share their antics with everyone at the Grove.
Cash is destined to be a show dog, and has been travelling around, meeting as many new people as possible. He has already attended The Toronto Sportsman Show, Dog Shows and will be spending a day at the Pet Expo in Toronto. He is quite the social butterfly and gets along well with both people and other dogs.
If you are anything like us, you cant wait for ice out..and fishing season to begin! Black-flies be dammed...its time to cast a line on the water.
The Pickerel River is the ideal fishing spot, with over 40 miles of waterway to explore, and varied habitat...its a perfect spot for the avid angler. The beauty of it, is that we are relatively undiscovered. Whether you fish for Pickerel/Walleye, Pike, Small mouth, Large-mouth Bass or Pan-fish, you are sure to enjoy your catch.
The majority of Anglers on our waterway practice catch and release. Explore our many lakes and rivers...or for the more avid adventurous sort...we have back lakes that you are sure to enjoy.

We were fortunate to have Craig Nicholson, The Intrepid Snowmobiler stay overnight at both our Farmhouse and Chalet. His Sledding crew were on a mission, checking out the groomed trails of our Loring-Restoule region for an article in Snow Goer Canada Magazine. They dined at both Roxies and Jakes Place Restaurant, we are excited to see what comes of the article.

The BIG news for 2015 is that we are getting a new puppy! Hilary was very diligent searching for the best breeder possible and she decided to purchase a Doberman from Dobereich Kennels.
The new bundle of joy comes home January 24. We look forward to making him part of our family and sharing him with our guests at Pine Grove. If any of you are attending the Toronto Sportsman Show or Woofstock, you may be able to meet "Johnny Cash" (CASH) before the season gets in full swing at Pine Grove.
