You might think that Burnstown is the prototypical one horse town on four corners however it is a hidden gem. Found in the tree-covered valley south of Renfrew, Burnstown is home to well-known artists. Historic log cabins and colourful clapboard homes line the few streets of our walkable town. The scenery, especially the bridge over the Madawaska River is spectacular. The elevation of the bridge over the river is amazing, and the view is gorgeous.
