We’re rapidly approaching one of the most anticipated holidays of the year here in breathtaking Port Severn, Ontario: Thanksgiving. Every autumn, families from across the region (especially the Greater Toronto Area) flock to our peaceful slice of Southern Ontario paradise to observe vibrant fall colours, hook monster muskies, and revel in a variety of harvest season festivities. Over the past several decades, Severn Lodge has become one of the most popular Thanksgiving getaways in Ontario thanks to our all-inclusive rates, seemingly endless fall activities, and awe-inspiring surrounding beauty. Thanksgiving weekend is always a bittersweet time for us as we close our doors for the season on the second Monday of October. But it’s also an opportunity to say “thank you” to our wonderful, loyal guests by offering them a treasure trove of elaborate Thanksgiving festivities.
“Feasting” at Severn Lodge
Severn Lodge would not have evolved into one of the premier Thanksgiving getaways in Ontario without offering some of the tastiest, heartiest meals imaginable. We’re known for our roast turkey buffet which features locally-sourced poultry and ingredients as well as roast beef, fresh salmon, homemade pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, cranberry delights, and everything else you’d expect from an eye-popping, mouthwatering family-style dinner during the holiday season.
Thanksgiving Getaways for Families
To ensure that all visiting families enjoy a genuinely unforgettable Thanksgiving vacation here at Severn Lodge, we gleefully offer over a dozen seasonal, on-site activities throughout the holiday weekend. We’ve compiled ten of our favourite Thanksgiving activities to give you a “taste” of what our friendly, talented staff pieces together every harvest:
- Pumpkin Carving
- Hay Rides
- Beach Bonfires
- Woodland Hikes / “Leaf-Peeping”
- Cookie Decorating
- Apple Bobbing
- Fall Fishing
- Boat Cruises
- Kayaking / Canoeing
- Hot Tub Relaxation
Fall Colours in Southern Ontario
Our expansive waterfront resort rests on approximately 100 acres of wilderness, including lush forestry that lines the property’s azure blue water. Every autumn, the woods that encircle Severn Lodge transform into a jaw-dropping meld of crimson, amber, marigold, and kelly green, effectively alluring thousands of self-proclaimed “leaf-peepers” into the region. Yes, there are a variety of ways to explore the forestry and waters that surround our peaceful lodge, but you won’t have to take more than a couple of steps from your cottage, suite, or guest room to be entirely immersed in the colourful beauty of Southern Ontario.
Thanksgiving Weekend Packages
Severn Lodge has become synonymous for “savings” in recent years as our all-inclusive packages help families save bundles—and Thanksgiving weekend is no different!

These all-inclusive packages include country-style breakfast, lunch, dinner (including the Thanksgiving feast), a sizable accommodation, and all seasonal activities.
