Known as the “Land of Shining Waters” in the local Aboriginal language, Kawartha Lakes is situated in south-central Ontario, with cottage rentals scattered among charming communities and along the shores of the region’s 250 lakes.

Kawartha Lakes lends itself perfectly to outdoor adventure. The area’s lakes and rivers are linked by the scenic Trent-Severn Waterway - a National Historic Site of Canada - and, as such, are a top fishing and boating destination. On the trails of Kawartha Lakes, and at nearby provincial parks, hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and horseback riding are popular in the summer, while cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are favourites come winter. Devil’s Elbow, a local ski area, offers hours of fun for skiers and snowboarders from novice to expert. Bird and butterfly watching at the Kawarthas’ Carden Plain is a world-renowned experience.

Full of historic sites and heritage properties and dotted with farms and markets, the area abounds with cultural and agri-culinary attractions. Be sure to visit the weekly farmers‘ markets and stock up on fresh, organic meats and produce at an Amish or Mennonite Farm.

Just a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto, the charming and scenic Kawartha Lakes is a popular place to rent a cottage in Ontario.
