This is what memories are made of.
Algonquin Heights is an exceptional lakeside community that offers large, private building sites immersed in nature. It is located in arguably one of the most beautiful corners of Ontario, among the rolling hills and lakes east of Algonquin Park and just west of the Town of Barry’s Bay. Algonquin Heights is directly off Highway 60, 3.25 hours from Toronto and two hours from Ottawa.
There are two large waterfront lots and 13 interior lots to choose from. Most of the interior lots have a beautiful elevated view of Trout Lake and access to the lake from a common footpath and park at the shore within a short walk. The community also features a hillside park with panoramic views of the lake and surrounding countryside. Carson Lake Provincial Park is within one kilometre and offers free day use access to both Trout Lake and Carson Lake.
Despite its natural setting, Algonquin Heights owners enjoy four-season paved road access, hydro and telephone service, and all the conveniences of Barry’s Bay just five minutes down the road.

The Algonquin Heights Story
Algonquin Heights Lakeside Community is a plan of subdivision (formerly known as Algonquin Shores) created by three prominent Barry’s Bay area businessmen, and registered in 1987.
Today, it is an established community of lakeside homes and cottages on a picturesque hillside on the west side of Trout Lake. In the summer of 2020, recognizing the incredible potential of the properties, Mark and Miriam Snider of Westport, Ontario purchased all the remaining lots in the development, with plans to undertake significant enhancements to the lots and community.
Mark is a professional land use planner who has been helping shape new communities over his 29-year career. He got his feet wet in land development early, working alongside his father in establishing a lakeside subdivision north of Kingston in the 1980s. As a Planning consultant, Mark has been involved in numerous exciting development projects across eastern Ontario as a designer and project manager. Mark and Miriam were the owners and creators of Kennebec Shores in Frontenac County, and before that Mark was part of the team that created Badour Farm Waterfront Community on Bobs Lake and Crow Lake about one hour north of Kingston. Both Kennebec Shores and Badour Farm have been recognized as eastern Ontario’s premier lakeside developments. A key aspect of the success of Badour Farm and Kennebec Shores alike is the environmentally responsible way in which these communities were designed and developed. Mark is a lifelong resident of cottage country and recognizes the importance of the health of these lakes to environmental integrity and local economic stability.
