Clean the World

Do you ever wonder what becomes of the soap and shampoo you leave behind in a hotel? Those lovely pre-wrapped packages that are set up so nice for just your use, are discarded when you check out. Tons of garbage heading nowhere! We recently joined the Clean the World program here at White Oaks Resort, which to be honest, I [...]

We’ve all raved about what an amazing treat it was upon our return and we started to seriously consider how to incorporate Butler service at White Oaks. What would that look like?

Niagara’s Bounty

I went to the grocery store the other day and had my attitude adjusted. Thought I’d pick up a bag of milk – it was $16.00 for three liters. Yup. And the bottle of ketchup I looked at was $14.99 – no kidding. And three, tiny, pale triangles of under-ripe watermelon on a Styrofoam tray? A stunning $3.99. Where was [...]

Sounds of Summer

The Sounds of Summer are alive and well in Niagara this year…perhaps even a little bit louder than usual. After a big kick-off that saw the Tragically Hip playing a Canada Day concert in Niagara-on-the-Lake to a crowd of over 30,000 people, Summer 2012 shows no signs of letting up on live music. If you find yourself on a short or [...]

Shaw Fest Best

Ragtime is playing at the Shaw Festival Theatre in Niagara on the Lake this year and as White Oaks Resort is one of their tourism partners, I was lucky enough to get an invite to their Tourism Night!
