How many resorts are located on the lake?
3 or 4.
How many neighbors stay year around?
There are many residents who stay in the area year around, the closest neighbors who lives on the Golden Lake full time in 300 meters. All neighbours who lives here year around – are really good and very supportive. I was really happy for that change, after the never smiling Toronto next doors.
Schools and facilities for the kids.
The school located just in 8 km from our resort, in Killaloe. The school is really good, this is a small community, so the teachers know all the children and really care about them. In Killaloe there is also a good kindergarten, free skating ring in the winter and numerous sporting activities in the summer. Top quality sporting facilities are also available in nearby towns Eganville and Barry’s Bay.
What are the nearest towns to you?
Killaloe 8 km, Barry’s Bay about 30 km, Eganville about 30 km. Larger towns are Pembroke and Renfrew, which are located approximately 50 km drive from us.
How far is this property from Toronto Ontario?
About 350 km from Toronto and in a 90 minute drive from Ottawa.
Do you have enough activities for the kids in the area?
Yes, and No. There are many opportunities for the hobby sports and kids entertainment. But then your kids move to competitive level, you should drive hundred kilometres, to keep the proper level. This is a main reason, why I need more flexibility to move close to the bigger city.
Job market etc.
It is hard to find qualified job in the area – if you planning to find full time job – may be you should consider other resorts, closer to Toronto.
On the other hand – there are a moderate supply on the labor market. You can fine unqualified assistance at very reasonable rate.
