Cottage country has many options for people wanting a cottage near Toronto. We work with people looking for a cottage near Toronto and wanting to drive no further than two hours north of the GTA. We are very familiar with the Barrie, Oro-Medonte, Orillia, Southern Georgian Bay, the Trent Severn Waterways, and the Parry Sound-Muskoka district.
There are a number of wonderful options for cottaging near Toronto. Very popular for cottaging north of Toronto, but south of the Parry Sound-Muskoka district are the areas of Lake Simcoe, Lake Couchiching, and the Trent Severn Waterway which connects these popular lakes with Georgian Bay. The Washago area, which includes the Severn, Black and Green rivers, and Sparrow Lake (which is not really a lake, but is a very wide part of the Trent Severn Waterway), are also popular with cottagers. Southern Georgian Bay and the Trent Severn Waterways are another very popular area for people wanting a cottage near Toronto and include the areas of Glousterpool, Georgian Bay/Wabashene, Georgian Bay/Port Severn, Georgian Bay/Honey Harbour, and Go Home Lake, Gibson Lake, and Six Mile Lake.
