Nature Abounds and Surrounds This 4-Season Home or Retreat
Take a closer look at this wonderful riverfront property, centrally located and convenient to Wasaga Beach`s hiking and biking trails, shopping and services.
This two-bedroom home is outfitted with a new gas fireplace, open concept kitchen/dining and two family rooms. A thoughtful floor plan provides the largest windows overlooking an impressive 112 feet of water frontage on the beautiful, serene Nottawasaga River. While clicking through the photos, linger on the covered porch, back deck, large landscaped lot and the classic Canadian cottage life aesthetic indoors. Picture yourself living in a private riverfront paradise with every possibility for relaxation, entertainment and recreation right at your doorstep.
Oxbow Park Drive meanders like the river it hugs, resulting in residents who slow down and appreciate the pine-scented welcome home. For all it’s feeling like being in the middle of nowhere, this verdant neighbourhood is actually in the middle of something very special: Wasaga Beach, Ontario, home of the world’s longest freshwater beach. Take a look at the relative size of the lot at #636 below and enter your current location in the map at bottom for concise directions.

P.S. Obviously we love rivers and can wax a bit poetic when writing about our very own…but many others have been much more eloquent!
Here are some favourite quotes about rivers:
There’s nothing… absolutely nothing… half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.
-Kenneth Grahme, The Wind in the Willows
Who hears the rippling of rivers will not utterly despair of anything.
-Henry David Thoreau
I choose to listen to the river for a while, thinking river thoughts, before joining the night and the stars.
– Edward Abbey
Sometimes luck is with you, and sometimes not, but the important thing is to take the dare. Those who climb mountains or raft rivers understand this.
– David Brower
What would the world be, once bereft of wet and wildness? Let them be left, O let them be left, wildness and wet; Long live the weeds and the wilderness yet.
– Gerard Manley Hopkins 1844-1889
The care of rivers is not a question of rivers, but of the human heart.
– Tanako Shozo
Be like a rock in the middle of a river, let all of the water flow around and past you.
– Zen Saying
Rivers flow not past, but through us; tingling, vibrating, exciting every cell and fiber in our bodies, making them sing and glide.
– John Muir
Swift or smooth, broad as the Hudson or narrow enough to scrape your gunwales, every river is a world of its own, unique in pattern and personality. Each mile on a river will take you further from home than a hundred miles on a road.
– Bob Marshall
Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.
– A. A. Milne, Pooh’s Little Instruction Book
What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.
– Hal Boyle
