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 (2 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 Life  declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.

A couple times a year, the forest south of topsyfarms is a causeway for their sheep. A short 10 minute walk and they are through to the other side.

Amherst Island🐑
It was just one day, but it felt much longer as we explored the back roads of Amherst Island. Goodbye beautiful island; we hope to be back some day.🚘
It’s a rainy Wednesday morning here in my neck of the woods, but the fireplace is blazing and the coffee is strong.☕️
Happy Wednesday friends.
Be kind.🧡

Amherst Island.🍁
Harrowsmith Country Life declared the island’s local hamlet, Stella, as one of the “prettiest towns in Canada”.
Amherst Island was originally inhabited by Indigenous peoples who gave it the name Kaounesgo.
The island was later settled by United Empire Loyalists.
A free twenty minute ferry ride from Millhaven brought us across to Amherst Island where we explored by car and by bike. It was so peaceful and pastoral here, with sheep, cattle and horses grazing in the fields, stone fencing, views of Lake Ontario, small settlements and homesteads. We both felt like we had stepped back in time to a quiet rural place with a fascinating history.
Stay tuned for more.📻
