Why Mill River is the Perfect Place for Winter Adventure

Whether you love the snow or not, winter does not have to be a drag, especially in PEI! With so many beautiful sights to see and places to explore, all winter long you’ll find one great big adventure waiting to happen. And with snowy days fast approaching, what more could you want than fresh air, happy kids, and an adventure? As far as Mill River Resort is concerned, winter activities are for everyone – young, old, and everyone in between! So this year, instead of hibernating this winter, answer the call to winter adventure and fun with a visit to Mill River along the beautiful North Cape Coastal Drive.

There’s no question about it, as kids there is nothing more fun than getting the chance to spend the night out. Everything is so new, so comfy, so luxurious, so… fresh for the playing! Mill River’s renovations have made each and every room cozy, comfortable, and relaxing – truly a place that kids and adults alike will love! As you get ready to spend a few days enjoying everything the resort has to offer, you’ll be thrilled with your room being your landing spot between all your activities and a perfect place to lay your head at night!


Grab your skates and hit the ice! The outdoor skating rink at Mill River is a great start to your winter adventure. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced skater, there’s room for you to have a blast here, and you’ll leave the ice already looking forward to the next time you can go for a glide!


We dare you to find winter adventure more exhilarating than speeding down the tubing hill. No matter your age, the feeling of the wind blowing through your hair as you slip and slide down the hill just doesn’t get old! It’s up to you how fancy you want to get with the sliding, but trust us, all the best winter days include tubing at Mill River.


Still finding the energy for winter fun? First, we salute you. Second, how could you miss a chance to snowshoe or cross-country ski on a beautiful winter’s day? With the sun gleaming and the snow shimmering, Mill River’s trails are ready for you to start exploring as you continue your great winter adventure. Need a little more fun? Well ok! The resort’s new additions of disc golf and fat biking kick the winter fun up a notch.


In case you get a little chill, don’t even worry. The resort’s newest indoor addition, the Foresight “Hawk” Golf Simulators and players lounge, will let golf enthusiasts golf all year round starting December 1st! Not to mention, Mill River’s Aquaplex is loaded with more fun than you’ll know what to do with! Squash courts, pool, jacuzzi, oh, and did we mention a 90 foot water slide? This place is no joke! Schedule ahead to allow for proper distancing and you’ll be all set for fun. And when you’re thoroughly tuckered out and just need to chill, the art gallery and indoor games are the best place to get a little quiet time to gear up for the next adventure!


After all that exploring, there’s no way you’re not hungry, but here’s the best part: the entire menu at Callaghan’s Restaurant and Bar at Mill River Resort is absolutely worth devouring and your mouth will water just reading it! With a wide-array of uniquely delicious choices that are fit for adults and kids alike, Callaghan’s is sure to be a huge win for everyone.


Eventually the sun will go down, but don’t think for one second that that means the fun is over. End your adventure on a high note by bundling up, heading outside to a cozy fire, and roasting marshmallows for s’mores! Just a few steps away from your room for the night, this is the one and only way to end your family’s great winter adventure at Mill River Resort.
