This year for our Fall Getaway we are going to the 1000 Islands! The trip will begin on Friday afternoon, October 28th with a pleasant drive to Clayton, NY where we will check in to the 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel. (http://www.1000islandsharborhotel.com) Our dinner that evening is included as is our breakfast on Saturday morning. After Saturday breakfast we will make the short drive to Alexandria Bay for some free time to walk around and grab lunch before boarding a boat at 12:30 for the 2 Nation Tour. (http://usboattours.com/1000islands/?page_id=8) This 2 ½ hour tour will take us on a 22 mile trip through US and Canadian waters with a guide to provide a narrative of the sights and sites of the St. Lawrence River. On the way back, the boat will stop at the Boldt Castle for an optional tour. Saturday evening we will join together for an ala carte dinner at a local Clayton restaurant. Sunday morning will begin with breakfast (included) and an optional tour of the Antique Boat Museum, (http://www.abm.org), after which we will depart back to the Albany area.
The Fall Getaway Package includes two nights’ hotel accommodations in either a two queen or single king room, dinner on Friday night and breakfast on both Saturday and Sunday mornings. The package price is $407 single or $484 double occupancy and can be booked directly with the Harbor Hotel by phone at: (315) 686-1100. Tell them you are with the Hudson Champlain Region, Porsche Club of America group. The boat tour is $21 per person and you will pay for that separately as we have received a group rate discount.
I have reserved 20 rooms for this trip and I expect them to sell out, so don’t wait until the last minute to make your reservations. This hotel is really a first class operation and is the sister hotel of the Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen where many of us stay when we go to the track.
If you have any questions about this, or any thing else, please don’t hesitate to email or call.
