Big Canoe 2022 Holiday Gift Guide

With the thick of the holiday season almost upon us, a sobering thought can enter the mind: When will I ever get my Christmas shopping done?

Not to worry. Big Canoe’s got you covered.

From pontoon boat-ride gift cards to the coolest, locally designed Big Canoe-branded T-shirts this side of the Covered Bridge, Big Canoe has a range of ideas that fit most every Christmas wish list. What better way to show off the place you love than by handing out a Big Canoe-themed gift?

And remember: If make any purchases at any of the amenities or the Black Bear Pub on Friday, Nov. 25, a.k.a. Black Friday, you’ll get 30 percent off on not just Big Canoe-themed items (excluding gift cards), but on ALL items – from Christmas ornaments to tennis rackets. There’s also up to 50 percent off select items (excluding range finders and golf clubs).

Below is a sampling of just a few Big Canoe-branded items available in the Trading Post/Golf Pro Shop, the Marina, The Wellness Center/Racquet Club and the Black Bear Pub. There are plenty of other sweet gift options beyond what’s pictured.


Pontoon Boat Gift Cards – Starting Jan. 1, the pontoon boat rentals for Property Owners go up to $40 per hour. Buy a two-hour rental before the end of the year for $70, which is a $10 savings. Available only in the membership director’s office in the Canoe Lodge. Contact Teri Sawyer for more details at



The Trading Post and Other Amenities, Pt. 1 – From left, back row: Glassware (Big Canoe-branded low ball, wine glass, beer glass), money clips, Big Canoe sign, coffee mugs, water bottles; front row: one of the locally designed, original Big Canoe-themed T-shirts and sweatshirts, which are available in four different styles with two different designs.

The Trading Post is your motherlode for Big Canoe items with kitchenware, baseball caps, hoodies and other assorted clothing. The Trading Post also features many items that are not Big Canoe branded, including footwear and clothing, Christmas ornaments, club covers, massage guns and more. All Big Canoe Christmas T-shirts and branded water bottles are also available at the Wellness Center, the Racquet Club (now temporarily located above the Indoor Tennis Court at Wellness), the Marina and behind the hostess station at the Black Bear Pub. And at each amenity, that Black Friday sale applies to items such as tennis bags, tennis rackets and clothes at the Racquet Club; and outerwear and waterproof bags at the Marina.


“Big Canoe: The First 50 Years” – Give loved ones a chance to take a bit of Big Canoe back home by gifting this 50th-anniversary commemorative book, which is packed with current and archival photos that capture the spirit of our insanely beautiful mountain community.


Pickleball Bags and More – Though it’s been relocated, the Tennis Pro Shop is operating out of the upstairs area at the Indoor Tennis Court in the Wellness Center. These sweet Big Canoe pickleball bags are among the branded goods you can pick up there.


Big Canoe Memberships – Buy a membership before Christmas for any of the amenities other than aquatics, and you will receive two complimentary months with your one-year commitment. Save from $24 to $650. Contact Teri Sawyer for more details at


Trading Post, Pt. II – This throw pillow and coffee mugs help you bring the Mountains of Big Canoe into your cozy place.
