With over 900 kilometres of shoreline, as well as national and provincial parks, including Point Pelee, Long Point, and Rondeau, the region lends itself perfectly to outdoor adventure and bird and butterfly watching. Lake Erie is, of course, a preferred destination for anglers and water sport enthusiasts, who take to the waterways on boats, canoes, and kayaks. Hiking and cycling are other popular activities in the summer, while cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are favourites come winter. 

Ontario’s South West is home to historic towns and picturesque villages like Elora, Fergus, and St. Jacobs, which are dotted with well-preserved limestone and redbrick buildings, as well as antique shops and art galleries that display and sell local artisans’ work. The region is also noted for its burgeoning food and wine scene. Feast upon farm-to-table offerings and sample award-winning VQA wines. 

Located a two hours’ drive southwest of Toronto, South Western Ontario offers natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions making it a popular place to rent a cottage in Ontario.
