Extending from Muskoka in the south to the city of North Bay in the north, the Almaguin Highlands region is located in central Ontario with cottage rentals nestled amongst lakes, rivers, and birch, maple, and pine forests.
Home to Mikisew and Restoule Provincial Parks, and in close proximity to Algonquin PP, the Almaguin Highlands are a popular place to go hiking, mountain biking, and swimming in the summer, and snowmobiling come winter. It is also a preferred destination of anglers and water sport enthusiasts who explore the waterways with boats, canoes, and kayaks.
Famed for its natural beauty and cultural heritage, the Almaguin Highlands were a frequent subject in the work of Tom Thompson and the Group of Seven painters. The region is dotted with charming boutiques and galleries and the quaint town of Parry Sound plays host to an array of annual cultural events, including a buskers’ festival every Canada Day, and the Festival of the Sound in late summer.
Only three hours’ drive north of Toronto, the Amalguin Highlands region is one of the most popular places to rent a cottage in Ontario.+ More
