In Hastings County of eastern Ontario there is a little village called Marmora. Surrounded by water, this picturesque and quiet retreat is an equal three hours drive from Toronto or Ottawa. Come visit and you’ll soon understand why Marmora and the surrounding region are known as “ComfortCountry.”
Marmora is your quiet retreat away from the city. You have Crowe Lake and Crowe River at your fingertips, with the option of gazing out onto the waters or diving right into the fun, whether it be boating, swimming, or canoeing. Fishermen will be content casting for bass, pike, walleye, and more. There are six rivers to explore, and Class III rapids for those looking to quicken the pace – and their heartbeat.
Entertain yourself for hours along the many trails. Choose your pick from the Brian Goodchild Memorial Trail, Marmora Mine Trail, and Marmora Crowe River Trail. It doesn’t matter the time of year — walkers will delight in the surroundings year-round. The paths are also great for cyclists and ATVing or snowmobiling, depending on the weather.
For a day trip ideal for photographers and history buffs, visit the ghost towns around Marmora, where you can check out settlements that date back to the mid 1800s.
