Situated adjacent to the City of Orillia and bounded by Lake Couchiching to the east, the Severn River to the north, Georgian Bay to the west and Bass Lake to the south, Severn Township offers a recreational setting that allows for numerous year round activities with a wide range of services. Rural and urban communities such as Coldwater, Washago, Port Severn, Severn Falls and Marchmont contribute to the more relaxed lifestyle that attracts many who choose to move here.
While agriculture continues to be the primary industry, Severn offers a four season adventurous lifestyle for those who love the outdoors. Home to over 12,000 people, this sprawling municipality is a unique mix of rugged pre-Cambrian Shield, pristine waters and rolling farmland. Its rustic, authentic feel and lots of space to roam makes this a perfect place to raise a family or kick back and experience the freedom of being empty nester.
Whether walking, biking, sledding, or snowmobiling is the passion, the Uhthoff Recreational Trail from Orillia north to Waubaushene is there. Explore for endless days the beauty of Severn’s landscape. For those who love being on the water, picturesque lakes, rivers and the Trent Severn Waterway are at your doorstep. And, for those more attracted to quaint villages, out of the way galleries or a butter tart from one of the small unique communities that dot the area, there’s always something to keep you intrigued.
The Lake Couchiching shoreline is dotted with communities like Cumberland Beach, Menoke Beach and Amigo Beach with a mix of classic cottages, many of which have been renovated as year-round homes, and newer infill homes built by families and midlifers looking for the more relaxed lifestyle. Port Stanton on Sparrow Lake, Big Chute on Trent Severn and Port Severn are a part of the mosaic that makes Severn Township such a unique and authentic place to come and live.
Orillia, the closest major centre, offers all of the services required to make life easy, fun and less stressful, even as those who choose to stay in their country or waterfront home grow older. Soldiers Memorial is one of the 3 major hospitals in Central Ontario offering full surgical capabilities with supporting local surgeons and specialists.
For those interested in the arts and entertainment, they’ll enjoy venues such as shows at Casino Rama and the Opera House in Orillia. Outdoor music festivals include the Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia and the Burl’s Creek facility with Boots and Hearts and other major concerts throughout the summer.
So, come and experience all that Severn Township has to offer… and perhaps this will be the place you choose to call home in the future.
