Great place to take the kids to learn about Bobcaygeon as many of these are original farm homes from the original families. Lovely little church still can handle small marriages. Halloween, Cars & Quilts shows as well as the best Festival of Trees late November.

We vistited the Settlers Village for a wedding. It was a neat little spot but the highlight for us with the big barn for dinner and dancing. Great little spot!
