Winter Trail
Blue Jay


Located in Ontario’s Near North, it is far enough to escape the crowds, yet close enough for an easy weekend getaway from many urban centres. Just a 2 – 3 hour drive north of Toronto, Almaguin is bordered by Muskoka to the south and North Bay to the north. To the west is Georgian Bay, to the east is world-famous Algonquin Park.
Here, small villages and rural communities are tucked in among fields and woodlands, woven together with the colonization roads of a hearty pioneer history. The people are friendly and the pace is as slow or exhilarating as you want it to be.
A four-season destination, the Almaguin Highlands offers excitement for the adventurer, or the chance to simply unwind and relax. Your friendly, informed B&B host will gladly help you plan a perfect getaway. Some of the activities and attractions we recommend...
