Kid friendly Activities at Black River Cottages:

You don’t have to wander far for a fun-filled family holiday when staying at Black River Cottages. The immediate area offers plenty of kid friendly activities.

We offer 10 acres of green grass and beautiful views of the Black River. A homey area large enough for kids to roam around freely but small enough for parents to keep a watchful eye from the comfort of their cottage deck.

The zipline is about 6ft high and runs across 30 metres. Somehow the zippin’, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, never gets old..

The above ground pool is 1.4metres deep and the solar heating system will ensure a few degrees warmer water temperature. Kick back on the deck chairs while the kids splash around in the pool.

Next to the pool is a basketball hoop and this year we will be setting up our volleyball net.Challenge your cottage neighbours for a friendly game.

The playground offers endless entertainment while mom reads a book in the hammock or while dad cooks dinner on the BBQ.

 

Playground for kids

 

We have 6 bicycles onsite that you can sign out at any time. Morrison Point Road offers a real country experience. Venture down the road, past country barns, grazing cattle and cornfields to buy local honey and fresh eggs from The Honey Shack.

Hop over to Vicki’s Veggies for a huge variety of heirloom tomatoes . Organic produce right on our doorstep. If you’re lucky you might meet the lovely Vicki with the magical green fingers. Experience true county trust by popping your money in the cash box and taking your change.

And of course a popular pit stop in Prince Edward County is just a stone’s throw from us. The Black River Market is 500metres down the road where you can try different flavoured scoops of delicious ice cream.

Quinta Do Conde offers a true farm-to-table-experience. Fill up the tummy-tank before heading out by grabbing a fresh, seasonal, organic and healthy lunch. Also be sure to check out their “Table at the Farm”. Dinner is prepared live and served under the trees. Everything on the menu is grown organically at the farm! Yum! Be sure to hop over to their website for dates, time, menus and details.

Whether you want a quick workout, go on a fishing expedition, jump from the floating dock in the middle of the river, buy ice cream from the Black River Cheese factory or go for a sunset paddle, be sure to sign out one of our canoes, Kayaks or SUP’s. While doing that, be on the lookout for our resident Swan family.

The Black River is full of Bass, Pike and Perch. Try your luck at fishing from the dock or head down to Black River Bridge. Our own personal favourite fishing spot is a quick paddle across the river and very seldom disappoints.
