The Nottawasaga River is a great option, for home or cottage use, as it provides a unique opportunity to store your water toys on sheltered waterfront. No home is the same along the river, making for an interesting mix of million dollar mansions to weekend family retreats.
The Nottawasaga can be broken into two section, with respect to the boundaries of Wasaga Beach, which are simply A. Upstream and B. Downstream of Schoonertown Bridge (MacDonalds Plaza).
The area downstream, sandwiched between Mosley & River Rd, is considered Navigable- in other words, prime boating in any cycle of water level. The water level fluctuates between 5 & 12′ for the most part.
The area upstream, which meanders through the Oxbow loop, is better left to small boats, canoes, and personal water craft, as it is unmarked- but still beautiful. The loop has a more mature feel, with a large tree canopy over many parts.
Regardless of the section of River within Wasaga Beach, prices generally start in the low 400’s for a starter home, and quickly work there way up to 1 Mil +.
