The trip to Amherst Island begins with a 20-minute ferry ride across Lake Ontario from Millhaven to Stella. For many first-time visitors this is a highlight of the trip. The island is a tranquil rural spot with a population of roughly 400. Within the town of Stella you can find a general store, post office, take-out restaurant, tea house and fine arts and handicraft gallery.

On the Island the recreational possibilities are endless. Walk or cycle the back roads, seeking out Island landmarks such as the Fishing Village, the Owl Woods or the Crank Handle. Go bird watching in the bird sanctuary maintained by the Kingston Field Naturalists. Swim at one of three public beaches or hit the water for some fishing, sailing or scuba diving or boating. Attend one of the three Island churches (Anglican, Catholic or Presbyterian). Or relax and do nothing.
