"This part of the world is just great for getting one's head around what is happening in the world and making course corrections." - A Guest
Honeywell Hill is a glorious four-bedroom country property with fifty acres of fields, woods, and spectacular views in Northumberland County just north of Cobourg, Ontario.
Only an hour drive (or train ride with VIA Rail) from Toronto and you will be enjoying fresh country air, open fields, hilltop views, and lovely trails through the woods.
There are two fireplaces and large front deck with a south view where you can dine alfresco and look over the valley, with Lake Ontario on the horizon.
Honeywell Hill is at the heart of one of the most spectacular counties in Ontario, and whether you are interested in fishing, mountain biking, good restaurants or taking a day trip to the spa, you'll find all you could ask for here.
