Town of Honey Harbour
Honey Harbour serves as a launching point to the "30,000 Islands" that make up the Georgian Bay geography. The islands that are accessible from Honey Harbour are dotted with hundreds to thousands of cottages. The cottages serve mostly as summer residences. Many very large cottages have been built recently, which has resulted in an increase in the property values.
The economic cycle of Honey Harbour is tied to the cycle of the cottagers. Honey Harbour has a small grocery and hardware store and Picnic Island Resort, a post office, a liquor store, a bakery, a Catholic church and school, a public elementary school, several small craft stores, a large resort “The Delawana Resort”, and several marinas.
In addition to cottages, there are multiple waterfront trailer park resorts available as well. There are also numerous clean beaches lining both the shore and islands, inhabited by the diverse Ontario wildlife. Honey Harbour's founder's name was Harvey Hewitt from Pasadena, California. The double H's were a play off of his name. He was also the original pioneer and co-developer of "Woolite."
