This is an area uncluttered, largely untouched, welcoming and peaceful - yet alive with the vibrancy and charm of small town Ontario. It's history and culture - and interest today - is rooted in the establishment of the Trent Severn Waterway that charts a course through the Kawarthas from one famed lift lock in Peterborough to another in Kirkfield. What began as a means to commerce is now the heart of the Kawarthas - a destination location for boaters from all over North America. Our American friends not only savour the atmosphere, but enjoy the additional purchasing power their dollar offers when looking for discount holiday packages.
