saturatedrhouse_20351LEACOCK MUSEUM NATIONAL HISTORIC SITE – For over fifty years the Leacock Museum has been welcoming visitors to the Old Brewery Bay on the shores of Lake Couchiching. This stately, 19-room summer home represents Stephen Leacock’s lifetime love affair with Orillia, a town he immortalized as the mythical Mariposa in his quintessential best-seller Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town.

Included in the nearly 10- acre site are Leacock House, the Boathouse, and the museum archives and administration building. Don’t forget to stop by the Leacock Cafe and enjoy some amazing food and beverages, or stop through on the trails for some ice cream! The museum grounds feature gardens and trails such as the Orillia Millenium Trail or the Lightfoot Trail that travels throughout Orillia along the waterfront, through the property! These trails are ideal for a stroll, especially in their summer fullness or during fall colours. Enjoy the amazing waterfront, located on Lake Couchiching makes for some amazing views and a convenient spot to take a break from paddling and enjoy this local historic site! Open year round and available for rentals, meetings and special events.
