Kawartha Lakes is a land of paradox. You might meet a visitor recounting a peaceful, serene experience when their chaotic world of city life came beautifully back into alignment via a quiet Kawartha Lakes bed & breakfast. Yet, you’re just as likely to encounter another who experienced an adrenaline-packed weekend of jet-skis, 4-wheeling, fishing, pausing only to squeeze in a round of golf! The area is known as Ontario’s House Boat Capital, which, as you may know, happens to be about the closest thing adults get to summer camp.
