Kirk Kove Staff Reunion

For us as owners it was nice to experience the past history of our resort. Check our site for pictures. This was put together with a large effort from Bonnie Weese & Ken Kirk and their families.

In-Roads Art Studio Tour featuring Ursula Ossenberg was a great success, an endless flow of people to view her works – (web pictures also workshop information as she is one of our instructors.

Autumn is a beautiful experience here, which is under utilized. Whether it is for bird and nature watching, photography, arts or fishing, the seclusion and serenity is awe inspiring. Currently the Canadian Thanksgiving is a popular time here, a nice getaway prior to the long winter and next years return.

Note Clientele Appreciation Offer

As revenues are required from all aspects of our business and for your convenience, we would appreciate our clients purchasing their live bait from our location to offset the cost of selling it i.e. Commercial Retail Bait Licence, etc. Use of our 1-877-688-8388 number if large quantities of bait are required with larger quantities being sold the best of quality should be assured as well as price. For those who have purchased bait from our location we hope you were pleased and Thank-You.

Other Changes
The machines in the Laundromat have been replaced, and none to soon. Also, we have purchased three new Lund Fishing Boats and two 9.9 Johnson Motors and two more aluminum docks.

The store has been enlarged, more room, more stock. For your convenience we now sell bottled water, leaving more room and less weight in your vehicle. As stated earlier, the Fall & Winter weather so far has been great. The renovations have been non-stop, more new stoves, fridges, tables and chairs, futons etc. Many of the cottages have been transformed, some with new laminate flooring, commercial rugs, new counter tops and cabinets, ceiling fans, new mahogany wall panelling and lots of paint.

Please browse through our website, the Guest, Boating and Fishing Galleries have new pictures posted, we would appreciate your amazing current photos of past vacations here at Kirk Kove.

Kirk Kove is currently recognized as a Heritage Tourism Destination, we will be celebrating 75 years in 2007. It should be quite a party.

We look forward to meeting our new customers as well as re-acquainting with our regular customers (friends) again in 2005.

Till Then, Take Care
