Welcome to Downtown Napanee!

We're just a few minutes south of Highway 401, mid-way between the cities of Kingston and Belleville. Take our main access route - Exit 579S - for a quick route to the downtown or take Exit 582S, our secondary access. This exit will bring you into the east-end of the downtown area through the arches of one of Ontario's prettiest railway viaducts. Either's a quick drive. We look forward to meeting you!
