Go Home Bay Archipelago

Most private island aficionados are well familiar with Ontario, Canada’s famed Georgian Bay, home to more than 1,200 miles of majestic coastline and over 30,000 islands, which together form the largest freshwater archipelago on the planet. Less familiar but no less magnificent is Go Home Bay, the smaller area within Georgian Bay’s Muskoka District that offers some of the most spectacular and pristine conditions in the region.

Most private island aficionados are well familiar with Ontario, Canada’s famed Georgian Bay, home to more than 1,200 miles of majestic coastline and over 30,000 islands, which together form the largest freshwater archipelago on the planet. Less familiar but no less magnificent is Go Home Bay, the smaller area within Georgian Bay’s Muskoka District that offers some of the most spectacular and pristine conditions in the region.

Now you can own a lovely little archipelago set amidst Go Home Bay’s sublime beauty: an approximately two-acre main island with two dramatic stone “whalebacks” that frame spectacular southwest views to the open water and nearby Giant’s Tomb Island. A charming small cottage from the 1930s on the main island was significantly enhanced in 2010 with additions designed by architect Paul Hughes to create a spacious four-bedroom, two-bath cottage. The island is well-treed and has gentle elevations with smooth pink granite sloping gently to the water.

Go Home Bay’s unique name actually has two separate origin stories. According to one, the indigenous inhabitants of Go Home Bay would move inland each fall to the more protected nearby area of Go Home Lake, where they would live out the winter months. When asked where they were going by French-Canadian fur traders, they would reply “kewa,” which meant “go home” in their native language. As a more recent origin story would have it, 20th century loggers in the area would send their timber down the Musquash River to meet steamers at Go Home Bay. These steamers would transfer the timber to mills around the Great Lakes and then “go home,” which inspired the name. Wherever the name came from, one thing’s for certain: Once you Go Home, you’ll never want to leave.
