Bringing your family out for a summertime lakeside cottage vacation has been an unspoken Ontario family tradition for generations. There's just something magical about the lake country that words can't describe. At Southview Cottages we have 1600 feet of natural waterfront, complete with a lakeside boardwalk and fishing piers. It truly is a wonderfully picturesque setting, perfect for those summertime family vacations.
For those who just love to get out of the city and enjoy the great outdoors we have over 50 acres of wildlife, including numerous kilometers of nature trails. These trails are perfect for summer time hikes, biking, bird watching, and are accessible in both the spring and autumn seasons for beautifully scenic nature walks.
