Thinking of my parents today, and the joy they uncovered in 1971 when they "found" Pine Grove Camp, while searching for a cottage to purchase. After bottoming out their car on a road so rough it was more of a trail, they came to the Grove...and the rest is history. They did not set out to be pioneers in the industry, but my father has poured his heart and soul into every aspect of the property, supported by my Mom he gave back to Industry as President of NOTO & the local business association & on the Northern Committee of OTMP and he has dedicated his life to welcoming guests to Pine Grove, making sure their stay is warm & memorable. My father instilled this pride of place in me, the love of the land so deep that it becomes your heartbeat, grateful for every sunrise and every moment spent connected to the wilderness...committed to a life welcoming others and sharing the connection to land & family.
I carry this tradition onwards & into a new world where what we offer in Northern Ontario will be a much sought after solace to people haggard and stressed by challenges of city living.
49 years of the Grove, and while the current situation is crushing...in the future shines a light.
A right of passage. Iconic Canadian Cottage Vacations. Catching frogs, fishing, family time, board games and lifetime friendships. The North is healing. It brings people together. We need that right now. #tourismmatters #portloring
We still have not heard any news about opening...but we will post and blog and shout it from the rooftops when the government becomes more transparent on what's up for our sector. Your safety and that of our staff is of the utmost importance. We miss you! ❤🇨🇦🌲🐟🦌
