It was a little difficult for us to find it because there were no many signs of it on the roads. If you go there, be prepared for the travel in advance. The village is very good organized and presents the life between 1830 and...MoreHi margipan, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and visit Kawartha Settlers' Village.

After booking an appointment to visit the Horseless Carriage Museum near Fenelon Falls, our family approached the unassuming barn not quite knowing what expect. What a surprise when the door slid open! Hundreds of rare or unique pieces of Canadiana are on display in the museum. Five lovingly maintained gas or steam vehicles are the centrepiece of the collection, including the oldest Sawyer & Massey traction engine in Canada, dating back to 1895. The exceptional exhibition doesn't stop there, extending to fully functional vintage music boxes, gramophones and rare wax recordings, bicycles and scores of antique and collectible signs, cans, furnishings, and other meticulously researched and restored reminders of yesteryear. Fans of "Murdoch Mysteries" may even recognize some of the pieces which the museum allows to be used for the popular TV production.
Museum curator and owner Richard Bennett, wife Evelyn, and Evelyn's sister gave us a 90+ minute tour through the barn, proudly and patiently explaining all the details of the fascinating collection. Richard's engaging stories about the items, and seeing and hearing the artifacts actually work, truly brought the collection to life. This is a must-see when in the Fenelon Falls area; simply be sure to pre-book an appointment, and bring along a minimum $5 donation per person to help maintain this one-of-a-kind collection.

The staff are so friendly. Our group tried most wines (so many are yummy) and bought many bottles to drink on the dock (over the course of a long week-end). We also bought a few marinades for the BBQ and salads. A great place to stop on your way to your restful spot or on your way home. If it is raining, a little fruit wine will brighten and warm your day.

Reviewed By Dmarkwind - Kansas City, Missouri

When the relatives we were visiting in Bobcaygeon told us they were taking us to the local dinner theater, we didn’t know what to expect. The show we saw “Raising the Barn,” was bizarre and silly, and included melodrama, singing, several surprises, and just plain weirdness. But it was funny and very entertaining, and the cast was amazing. The setting - a converted and modified barn out in the Canadian countryside, was nice, and the food was very good. Our dinner included a salad bar, dinner buffet, and ice cream for dessert. We would enthusiastically do this again if we got the chance!

Lock 32

Reviewed By Gord B - Bobcaygeon, Canada

Great place in Bobcaygeon to view all the boat traffic coming back and forth from Pigeon to Sturgeon Lakes. There are restaurants, groceries, beer store and LCBO within walking distance of the lock as well as some tables for picnics. Swing bridge allows for taller boats to pass through the lock. Fine place to people and boat watch on a sunny day.

We attended a dinner theatre murder mystery. Some of my party enjoyed it more than others. I saw a similar mix in the audience. If you love to get involved, you'll probably enjoy it. If you're uncomfortable speaking up in a crowd, you may find it daunting. Food was OK, but not outstanding.

Boyd Heritage Museum

Reviewed By Brian H - Kingston, Canada

I enjoy learning about local history in my travels. The Boyd Heritage Museum tells the story of one of the major founding families of the Bobcaygeon area. Through an impressive mix of displays for a local museum it illustrates the life and times, environment and struggles of the Boyd family and many other families who formed the community and whose heritage carries through to today. There are very personal glimpses of their characters, successes and tragedies. The museum truly helps the visitor understand how the people worked together, how commerce and industry grew through them, and how they connected with the province, the country and the British Empire. It is sort of a settlers' "Downton Abbey" story. Well done.
