Just north of Snake Island in Lake Simcoe, Fox Island represents a smaller slice of remote lake living. It’s home to about 50 properties, making it the smallest of three islands that are part of the Georgina township. Measuring just 0.2 square kilometres, the only way to access Fox Island is by boat.
Similar to Snake Island, Fox Island has no roads connecting cottages, docks, and other locations. Rather, residents rely on private docks when it comes to leaving or arriving to the island. There are footpaths along the island, which are perfect for walking or the use of ATVs and snowmobiles. Fox Island is just a short boat ride away from East Point Marina and Island Grove Marina in Georgina to the south or Innisfil Beach to the west. During the spring, summer, and fall, you can take a water taxi to and from East Point Marina and Island Grove Marina seven days a week.
Because there are fewer properties here, cottages tend to be spaced out a little more, offering ample privacy for residents. Living on islands like Fox Island is a growing trend as more people look to escape the high costs of living and busyness of cities like Toronto. It’s quite a change in the pace of life, offering little noise besides the breeze on the water, the crickets, and the occasional neighbour.
The island itself is breathtaking, with most of the island untouched by human development. Cottages dot the shoreline, leaving the middle to remain as nature intended. This means that every property features a beautiful waterfront view that will make every day feel more like a vacation.
