Things To Do

There’s always something to do at the cottage!

We’ve got canoes and a paddleboard for exploring Little and Big Straggle (canoe to the island for a picnic or jumping off the rocks). Hike the trails here, or head up to Algonquin Park’s High Falls just north of here. If you’re looking for a workout, head out for a run – the hills will get your heart pumping! Bring your fishing rod (and license!) to try and outsmart the trout and bass. It’s pretty good fishing right off the dock.

For rainy days, we’ve got puzzles, games, and books. There’s also a fireplace to get cozy on chilly nights.

The Harcourt Park community center has events several times a week (Bingo, Yoga, Kids Arts & Crafts) – Pick up a calendar at either park gate or marina. Or use the tennis, shuffleboard, or sand volleyball court there. (Note – We get our drinking water from the community center well too!)

The town of Wilberforce is nearby for groceries, a library, and general store. A little further is Bancroft and Haliburton. On the way to Algonquin Park, there’s also horseback riding.
