PETERBOROUGH & THE KAWARTHAS 3 Natural Teambuilding The city is just minutes away from the famous Kawarthas cottage country, and a boutique desti- nation for meetings and events. Easily accessible via the 115 Highway from the 401, small to medi- um-sized groups will feel at home in the city, and can be easily accommodated in the Best Western Plus Otonabee Inn or the Holiday Inn Peterborough Waterfront. The Best Western has meeting rooms all on one floor, some feature walk out patio doors to the deck that overlooks the water. The lively down- town district is less than 10 minutes away. The Holiday Inn Peterborough Waterfront is the only full service hotel in the city, located on the Trent-Severn Waterway, with a gazebo patio open from May to September. The best group size for the Holiday Inn is about 100 people, and the hotel is scheduled for major renovations to guestrooms and meeting space. Trent University is a great choice if you're looking for economical accommodations during the summer months from May to August. Conferences are priced on a per person basis, which includes accommoda- tion, meals, meeting space and parking—all billable to one master account. The Land Canadian Adventures, in addition to four-season backcountry camping, does day trips such as "Wild Food- ies"—foraging for wild edibles from canoe—or can take your group on a canoe Lift Lock experience for about three hours. They can also arrange bonfire festivities for an open- ing night kick-off or wrap-up celebration for your event. Groups can blow off steam at Shorelines Slots at Kawar- tha Downs, or tempt Lady Luck at the casino or catch the horseracing from May to October. BEST WESTERN PLUS OTONABEE INN LAND CANADIAN ADVENTURES Land and Water Where Exceptional Events Unfold With Ease.
