Welcome to Amherst Island

Amherst Island is located in Lake Ontario west of Kingston, Ontario, Canada. The island is part of Loyalist Township in Lennox and Addington County. Amherst Island is located about 3 kilometres (2ย mi) offshore from the rest of Loyalist Township and access to the island is by way of the Frontenac II ferry from Millhaven.

The main population centre on the island is the village of Stella, which is the where the ferry lands on the island side. Harrowsmith Country Lifeย  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

This page is offered and maintained by the Amherst Island Community Alliance.

Honourable mentions to: dreaming up what it will look like and seeing photos of the day weeks later.

It was honestly such a pleasure working with S+C to bring their floral vision to life this September! There is nothing more classic than roses and babyโ€™s breath, and this couple pulled them off beautifully.

Congratulations!

The happy couple: readwithsama connahmcleod
