The next time you think of swimming at a secluded beach, catching a pike, or enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets over the lake, think of Maynooth. Located in Hastings Highlands just south-east of Algonquin Park, Maynooth brings together the best of eastern Ontario’s great outdoors from a readily accessible location.

For the quiet type, take a trip to nearby Fraser Lake or Lake St. Peter Provincial Park where you can read a book at the water’s edge and spot local bird species while enjoying the magnificent backdrops. For the thrill seeker, get ready for the time of your life on a whitewater raft or kayak, careening down the Madawaska River with Madawaska Kanu Centre. Or go galloping through the countryside on horseback – the choice is yours.

Art lovers can take a tour of the many local galleries and artisans by traveling down Arts Route. It’s a great way to expose yourself to local artwork and take a lovely scenic day trip by car.

Winter is just as lovely in the Maynooth area, when you can grab a cup of hot chocolate and gaze out into the wintry wonderland around you. Cross-country skiing, ice skating, and other winter activities abound. Or there’s always warm shops to peruse and baked goods to eat in town.

This town is located in North Hastings
