Area of Foot's Bay

Situated as it is on the Canadian Shield formation, the area is defined by rocky ground with shallow soil, supporting dense forests of small trees. Another feature of this terrain is the many lakes, rivers, waterways, and islands, making the area popular with outdoor enthusiasts for its rugged beauty and ample opportunities for adventure.

The broader region of Ontario around Foot’s Bay is also known as the Cottage Country, due to its many small cabins, cottages, and holiday homes that are popular with seasonal visitors and tourists. These outdoor getaways are complemented by the many small, charming communities and towns like Foot’s Bay, which foster a rich heritage and sense of community, as well as a vibrant arts and culture scene.

Many of Foot’s Bay’s seasonal visitors come from Toronto, which is approximately 90 minutes away to the south. This relatively short journey is thanks to the Trans Canada Highway which runs past Foot’s Bay a short distance to the west.

Other nearby communities include MacTier, less than 5 minutes away to the northwest, and Bala, a slightly larger town situated 15 minutes to the south.

Foot’s Bay itself is centred on the confluence of District Road 169 and Lake Joseph Road. The eponymous bay of Foot’s Bay is a short distance east of this intersection, and is accessible from The Cove marina. Beyond that are many points, islands, and rocky shores, dotted with cabins and private docks.

Foot's Bay Real Estate

The forests and shores around Foot’s Bay have many popular options for property buyers. Foot’s Bay lacks any concentrated housing of its own, although the nearby community of MacTier has a small residential core along its main road.

These rustic getaways provide scenic views of the water, enjoyable from private docks and decks. They also give unparalleled access to the waters for fun and relaxation.

There are a number of larger homes populating the surrounding rocky outcrops, usually mid-century country homes with open floor plans and cozy great rooms complete with fire-places and authentic wood surfacing.

Foot’s Bay is a real estate market that requires a more creative approach, from the quirky housing options and ample land waiting for development - the perfect place for you to express your own Cottage Country dream.
