Lefroy Harbour Resort's Dock Talk - Keeping you connected, on the docks and beyond
Counting Down the Days! 

Despite the dark, dreary days of February, we know that spring - and launch! - are just around the corner, and we're counting down the days!
  • 10 DAYS until we see everyone at the Lefroy Harbour Resorts Family Winter Golf Classic!
  • 32 DAYS until Daylight Savings Time resets the clocks - one hour closer to launch!
  • 40 DAYS until the first day of spring!
  • 61 DAYS until boat launch! (Weather permitting; watch Facebook for our launch videos.)

We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, February 18 for a last bit of winter fun, and are excited to get the 2017 boating season started!

Winter Golf Preparations

Mario, Al and Louie are keeping a close eye on thickness of the ice in the harbour, as we count down the days to the Lefroy Harbour Resorts Family Winter Golf Classic, Saturday, February 18!

Get ready to tee off for a round of winter golf (starting at 10am); skate on an outdoor rink and participate in other winter activities, weather permitting; roast marshmallows on an open fire; enjoy a complimentary outdoor barbecue with hot and cold refreshments (at noon); and reconnect with boating neighbours!

Thank You for Your Support

A dedicated family man, Lefroy Harbour Resorts founder, and dear friend to many, Eric Stovold passed away on December 14, with Verna, his loving wife and best friend of 65 years, and his family at his side.

As evidenced by the outpouring of condolences and memories shared following his passing, Eric made a lasting, positive impact on many throughout his 88 years.

The Stovold family extends our sincerest appreciation for the friendship, thoughtfulness and support extended to us during this difficult time.

We miss Eric greatly, but take much comfort in your kind words, memories and support

In late 2016, Lefroy general manager Ryan Stovold was the recipient of one of Boating Ontario's most esteemed honours, the Robert Eaton Environmental Award, and the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority's Water Conservation Award.

We recognize that it takes a collaborative effort and commitment to position Lefroy Harbour Resorts as a leader in environmental stewardship, and are most proud of our staff and boaters for their contributions to these honours!
