Gananoque is one of the Western towns in the 1000 Island Regions. It is home to 9500 people and is one of the ports that the boat cruises leave from. The little main street is quite cute with boutique stores and local cafes. The highlight of the town is the waterfront viewpoints. You can spend your time staring in to the distance and imagine owning one of the many islands.

The Country Squire Resort looks like it is in the same condition as most of the other hotels in the area. The resort would have been an excellent choice to stay back in its heyday. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay today, it might be an okay choice.
Itchy Feet Escapades rates the Country Squire resort 3 of 5 Itchy Feet.
