It only took one tranquil, soul rejuvenating weekend

on Chandos Lake for Shantelle and Yannick Bisson to fall in love with it.

They fell in love swiftly that first summer and decided to build their own cottage there.  Not only did they fall for the relaxed pace lifestyle, but as first-time cottage owners, they fell for the community.  And the sunsets.  Who can resist those?  Before the 2018 season was officially wrapped for the year they found themselves the new owners of West Bay Narrows Marina renaming it Shantilly’s Place with their stubborn, but lovely, bulldog Duke as mascot.

Now, as first-time marina owners, Shantelle and Yannick are excited for all the adventures that lay ahead.  They cannot wait to welcome all the families who have years of memories and traditions ensconced in the walls of the marina. With the new Shantilly’s Place Marina they also look forward to making new memories, building new traditions, and sharing laughs and stories with every person who comes through the old screen door.

“Our intention and goal as the new guardians of what was West Bay Narrows Marina is to uphold the traditions that built the marina into an institution on Chandos Lake.  We want to honour all the charming things that always made it a must stop while out on the lake.  The kids want their Kawartha Dairy ice cream, or candy, and a latte for you parents/grandparents to give you that extra bit of energy for ‘just one more time’ on the tube! Whatever it is that has made this marina special to you and your family, we hope to pay homage to them, while putting a little modern spin on what we believe our lake community needs.  We look forward to meeting all of you this summer, at Shantilly’s Place!”

@yannick_bisson and I were introduced to this phenomenal group four years ago. Once we learned of the unbelievable poverty that the children of #Haiti are living in we couldn’t help but get on board, to the point where we sit on the Advisory Board and the Canadian Board, of an organization that has built a school that began with 300 students to well over 3000 today. We have had four graduating classes and we couldn’t be more proud of our kids!
We all know that children are the future of every community, and we believe by giving children in Haiti equal opportunity to higher education this will translate into the change that Haiti needs.🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️
  • “Today 6 Canadian Children will be diagnosed with cancer. There are many ways to support these children
and their families on their journey.”
@childhoodcancercanada is a phenomenal organization that @yannick_bisson and I have been working with for almost a decade. In those years we’ve seen many kids win their battles against cancer; and sadly too many lose them. Kids shouldn’t get cancer. Parents shouldn’t have to bury their children...
But because they do we continue to work toward raising funds for children’s cancers. As of right now only 5% of money raised for cancer research goes to kid’s cancers. So, to do our part, along with your support, today @shantillysplace every ice cream we scoop, and every BBQ meal sold $1.00 will be donated to @childhoodcancercanada —
Come in and help us save lives 🙏🏻❤️
