Acclaimed by Heritage Canada The National Trust, Amherst Island’s historic houses and Irish stone fences are set in a landscape that has remained unchanged over the past 100 years. Take a tranquil ferry ride to visit old stone houses, restored farms and quaint village cottages, and enjoy a homemade farm lunch at the Lodge on Amherst Island.
This is a fund raiser for the Association to Protect Amherst Island. Tickets can be purchased in advance or on the day of the event and costs $40.00. To purchase tickets and find out more about this event please visit the Association to Protect Amherst Island web site – click here.
Round trip tickets for the ferry cost $9 per car, so we suggest that friends come in one car! A bicycle ticket is $1.50. The ferry leaves the mainland every hour on the half hour and from the Island every hour on the hour. For example, to arrive at the Island in time for 10 a.m., take the 9:30 ferry from Millhaven. We will be waiting for you with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
The starting point and information centre is minutes from the Island ferry dock at the Lodge on Amherst Island. The Lodge will be open throughout the day for lunch, refreshments, directions, and a chance to relax and wander the shores of Stella Bay.
