Luxury Orillia — Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel


One of the most charming waterfront communities in Canada, the City of Orillia has become a sought-after part of Ontario in which to live. Famous as the hometown of legendary singer Gordon Lightfoot – a fact that has cemented the city’s reputation as a top music festival destination – Orillia has much to offer.

Connecting Lake Couchiching to the north and the larger Lake Simcoe to the south, Orillia is a boater’s paradise. Pay a visit to the Port of Orillia and you’ll see pleasure craft and yachts of all sizes, many of them from the Great Lakes, accessible from here and nearby Barrie along the Trent-Severn Waterway. The city’s provincial parks include Bass Lake, a popular destination for families and anglers, who you’ll see buying gear from the iconic Ellwood Epps Fishing Store on Hwy 11, just past the equally popular Webers Restaurant with its famous cottage country burgers.

Outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers alike are equally spoiled thanks to Orillia’s proximity to the ski hills of Horseshoe Valley in Oro-Medonte – not to mention Mount St Louis Moonstone – as well as the stunning Canadian Shield-influenced scenery of nearby Muskoka and Algonquin Park.

For those looking to buy Orillia real estate, you’re spoiled for choice. You’ll find everything here from luxury waterfront cottages to renovated heritage homes, along with great family dwellings, retirement communities, and fancy condos. The city also offers everything needed for a great lifestyle, too, from its state-of-the-art hospital, great schools and sports facilities, world-class entertainment at Casino Rama, and other fun things to do in Orillia such as festivals, museums, and art shows.
