Copy of AREA PAGE 2 (7)

Township of Cavan Monaghan

The Township of Cavan Monaghan is located just 20km southeast of Peterborough City and a 90-minute drive northeast of Toronto. This area includes several small  hamlets and villages, each with its own unique character, such as Bailieboro, Cavan, Fraserville, Ida, Mount Pleasant, Springville, Five Mile Turn, and the historically rich enclave of Millbrook.  Here are the best places to live in Cavan Monaghan.

Millbrook

Let’s talk about Millbrook – it’s like the heartbeat of Cavan Monaghan Township. This place is buzzing, with everything you need right at your fingertips. There’s a grocery store for your everyday essentials and this super charming historic downtown that’s basically a treasure trove of local shops and a couple of spots to grab a bite.

But here’s the exciting twist – if you’re in the mood for some outdoor adventures, Millbrook’s got that too. Just south of the village is the Millbrook Valley 13 km Trail system, a nature lover’s paradise. And hey, if you’ve got those occasional aches and pains, no worries – Millbrook’s got physios and chiropractors just around the corner.

The vibe here is pretty cool – you’ve got these classic heritage homes mixing it up with newer subdivisions, creating this awesome blend of old and new.

What’s really neat is if you’re commuting to Durham for work, Millbrook’s got your back. It’s conveniently located with easy access to Highway 115, so you can escape the hustle and bustle and still be close enough to the action. 

Fraserville

Fraserville is located 11 km northeast of Peterborough and  27 km from Port Hope. Now, this place isn’t just your regular spot – it’s got some pretty awesome highlights.

First up, there’s Baxter Creek, one of the top-notch public golf courses in Peterborough County. It’s a golfer’s paradise, no doubt. And that’s not all – Fraserville is home to Kawartha Downs, the go-to spot for horse track races, music events, and a bit of casino fun.

When it comes to the type of homes in Fraserville, think of a charming blend that paints a picturesque scene. Here, you’ll find a mix of cozy farms and elegant estate-style homes, creating a landscape that’s both down-to-earth and stylish. It’s the kind of place where the simplicity of farm life harmonizes with the sophistication of estate living, giving Fraserville its unique and appealing character.

Bailieboro

Let’s talk about Bailieboro, a gem on the Kawartha Butter Tart Tour. One must-stop spot is Doo Doo Bakery, and let me tell you, their butter tarts are nothing short of amazing. But that’s not all that Bailieboro has to offer.

If you’re a wine enthusiast, you’re in for a treat. Bailieboro is home to Rolling Grapes, one of the two wineries in the region. Prepare to be wowed with their fantastic selection of wines, refreshing sangria, mouthwatering fire Stone pizza, and delightful charcuterie boards. And to top it off, they often host nights with live music for a perfect evening vibe.

As you explore Bailieboro, you’ll notice cozy old farmhouses nestled amidst sprawling fields, adding a touch of warmth and nostalgia to the surroundings. It’s a place where delectable treats, fine wines, and charming homes come together to create a truly delightful experience.
