Why Do We Love Cornwall, Ontario?

A local Century 21 Real Estate Agent, Mike VanderMeer, and I have compiled a list of the reasons we love Cornwall, Ontario.  We’ve compiled 21 reasons, which we will share with you, one at a time.  We would love to hear the reasons you love to live here too!

REASON #12 – Great Fishing

A sport for both young and old and a good variety of fish such as

Ontario Perch

Musky

Catch the next world-record musky by trolling large crankbaits and inline spinners at 4 to 5 miles per hour to cover the large expanses of the river and entice a strike.

Northern Pike

Reel in some impressive northern pike using a more traditional method of casting slender minnow profile crankbaits along weed edges, rocky points and shoal tops.

Walleye

Troll deeper water breaklines and humps using slender minnow profile crankbaits to reel in some massive walleye.

Smallmouth Bass

One of the most effective ways to attract the smallmouth bass is to dropshot four to five-inch paddletail soft plastics in darker patterns to mimic gobies, one of the smallmouth bass’ main food sources.

Carp

Attracting angler’s from around the globe, the carp found in Cornwall and the Counties are always up for putting up a fight. 30 to 40-pound carp are common for shore anglers and can be caught with bait as simple as corn kernels.

Why Do We Love Cornwall, Ontario?

A local Century 21 Real Estate Agent, Mike VanderMeer, and I have compiled a list of the reasons we love Cornwall, Ontario.  We’ve compiled 21 reasons, which we will share with you, one at a time.  We would love to hear the reasons you love to live here too!

REASON #11 – Timmies

It is as Canadian as hockey and toques and Cornwall has lots of them – at least 14 of them within the City limits. It’s not very rare to see a lineup at any of the Tim Hortons locations in Cornwall of thirsty patrons waiting to get their morning Double Double fix. Starbucks is more to your liking, we have one of those now too!

_

“Tim Hortons Inc. (known as Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop in some countries) is a fast food restaurant chain, specializing in coffee and donut items.[5][6] It is Canada’s largest quick service restaurant chain; as of December 31, 2018, it had a total of 4,846 restaurants in 14 countries.[4][7][8][9]The company has its headquarters in Toronto.

The company was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario, by Canadian hockey player Tim Horton (1930–1974) and Jim Charade (1934–2009), after an initial venture in hamburger restaurants.[10][11] In 1967, Horton partnered with investor Ron Joyce (1930–2019), who assumed control over operations after Horton died in 1974. Joyce expanded the chain into a multibillion-dollar franchise. Charade left the organization in 1966 and briefly returned in 1970 and 1993 through 1996. – via www.wikipedia.com”

NAV Centre also hosts some of the other large events in the area like the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation Annual Gala and the United Way Annual Wine & Gourmet tasting to name a few.

RETIRE IN CORNWALL, ONTARIO

21 REASONS WE LOVE CORNWALL, ONTARIO & AREA

Why Do We Love Cornwall, Ontario?

A local Century 21 Real Estate Agent, Mike VanderMeer, and I have compiled a list of the reasons we love Cornwall, Ontario.  We’ve compiled 21 reasons, which we will share with you, one at a time.  We would love to hear the reasons you love to live here too!

#6: A GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE

IN 2018, CORNWALL PLACED NUMBER 7 IN THE TOP TEN PLACES TO RETIRE IN ONTARIO according to MoneySense.

Our favorable ranking is based on our weather, health care access, crime rates, and the cost of owning property. Consider that a property in Oakville costing $850,000 can be purchased in Cornwall for about $250,000. That certainly builds up the nest egg for retirement living.

With approximately 120 days per year with a temperature above 20°C, our climate makes for a very comfortable place to live.  “Similar to most of southern Ontario, Cornwall has a humid continental climate (Köppen Dfa/Dfb) with cold, snowy winters and warm, humid summers. ” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornwall,_Ontario#Climate

With our modern hospital with close to 400 beds and around 1,000 healthcare professionals, medical services are close at hand.  In addition, we have over 80 Doctors and Nurse Practitioners and more than 25 dentists in Cornwall. Several Nursing Homes and Senior residences are located in Cornwall and Area.  Since we are the designated delivery agent for Land Ambulance Service our citizens can rest assured that fast and efficient care is in place.

With public transit, taxi, and handicap transit paired with our excellent bike path system and very low traffic levels, getting around is a breeze!

We are one of the least expensive places in Ontario to buy a home. We have a wide variety of homes available – waterfront, condos, hobby farms, executive homes, starter homes just to name a few.  Located in the middle of the three United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Cornwall has many surrounding towns & villages.

Many of these villages have historical significance.  Some were even newly created with the flooding of the Seaway in the 1950s. For those who like the smaller town feel while being close to major amenities, the many towns & villages are there for you.  You can also choose a country home or farm for privacy and space.
