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!”

  • So proud of our owners @shantellebisson and @yannick_bisson taking a weekend off of cottaging and @shantillysplace to help raise just over a quarter of a million dollars at the inaugural @artistsforpeace Montreal Gala raising money and awareness for the youth of #Haiti 👏🏻❤️
“I full heartedly believe that our Countries are only as great as the next generation. This is why my philanthropic endeavours are child centric. Even if it is something as simple as revitalizing a lakeside staple as I’ve done with @shantillysplace so children will have a sense of tradition, history and belonging; which helps children feel secure and protected as they go through life, giving them a sense of community.”
Posted @withrepost • @hellocanadamag Last night’s @artistsforpeace gala in Montreal raised more than a quarter million dollars to provide access to education in Haiti. Well done!! 🙏🙏 Photo: @georgepimentel1 for APJ
