Over 300 whiskies from around the world including 200 single malts, with special attention shown to the true Scottish varieties.

Sandy and Gordon have just introduced 2 new features... The Robbie Burns Private Dining Room which seats 16 people and has a parlor off to the side where appetizers and cocktails can be enjoyed prior to dinner. I have a feeling that this room will be in huge demand this ski season...so book well in advance. They have also just introduced Patrons of The Dam Pub. Imagine...your own bottle of scotch with your name on it on a special tag, just waiting for you and your friends to enjoy. This would really make a great birthday or special occasion gift for that special someone in your life.

Adjacent to the gallery is Debra's studio where she paints large scale textured landscape oil paintings of images from the area. Loft Gallery exhibits original art by local and Ontario artists creating a pleasant excursion in air-conditioned comfort.
Dags & Willow
Dags and Willow will be coming on board with us shortly and you can read all about this fine cheese and gourmet food shop. Not even a year old yet and they have become hugely successful and popular for residents and visitors alike. The chicken breast stuffed with procuitto and goat's cheese is highly recommended.
Good luck with that first day back to school. I am quite excited that I won't have to share the phone during the day anymore. Yeay!
