Ever dreamed of living on an island? You don’t need to travel to the tropics to make it happen. Georgina Island gives you real island living and all the best things about living in Canada. It is the largest of all the islands on the lake with about 100 homes and 200 leasing properties.
Situated on the east side of Lake Simcoe, Georgina Island balances remote living with modern comforts. You don’t have to sacrifice things like electricity, running water, and roads for travel. Loon Road, Bear Road, and Chief Joseph Stake Road circle the island’s perimeter, leading you to beautiful homes with waterfront views, beaches, hiking trails, the East Point Marina, and the ferry landing. When you need to make a trip to the mainland, it’s just a short ferry or airboat ride away. And when the lake freezes over in the winter, an “ice road” is plowed so island residents can drive their cars, trucks, ATVs, or snowmobiles to the mainland.
Local businesses and amenities dot the island, including a pet store, learning centres, and the Georgina Island Community Centre. You’ll love making memories hiking the Nanabush Trails and appreciating the preservation of the island’s natural beauty. Trees are in greater abundance than homes or people here, with most of the island’s development existing along the outer edges and leaving the rest to nature.
For centuries, the Chippewa people have called Georgina Island home. Chippewas continue to live on the island today, as well as the neighbouring Snake Island. It’s a slice of rich Canadian and native history that you can call home, and we’d love to show you around. Schedule a consultation with one of our Realtors today!
