POSTPONED: Doctor's Island Open House

UPDATE (August 21): This event has been postponed.

PREVIOUS: On Sunday, August 26th you are invited for a tour of Doctor’s Island! You may be from Blackville and always wondered what the island is like, or perhaps you are interested in renting a cottage next summer, having your wedding on the island, or hosting a family reunion! The open house is from 2:00pm until 5:00pm.

The launch zone will be from the dock which is located in the field behind Dr. Tiffany Keenan’s home at 15 Campbell Drive in Blackville. You will be shuttled by boat to the island. You’ll be free to explore the island which was once home to over 130 Medicinal Plants, and see the cottage where Marilyn Monroe and Joe Dimaggio slept when they visited the Miramichi.

Be sure to check out the healing tree and place a rock on the Peace Cairn!

If you have any questions, please contact Tiffany Keenan or David Donohue or email . Visit the Doctor’s Island Cottages Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Doctors-Island-Cottages-1111075172378568/.
