Kevin & Jennifer Lavers came to Picton in 2001. Both fell in love with the area and were married the same year. Kevin, being an avid fisherman, had always dreamed of owning and operating a resort on the water and spending his days doing fishing charters. He and his business and fishing partner, Michael, had been in the market looking for the perfect place. After quite a few months of searching, they landed at Merland Park.
