Common Questions

About Algonquin Heights Lakeside Community

Is the road maintained year-round?

Yes, our paved road is owned and maintained by the Township of Madawaska Valley as a year-round public road.

The Township of Madawaska Valley office is located in the town of Barry’s Bay about five minutes east of Algonquin Heights. Visit http://www.madawaskavalley.ca/ for more information.

Where do we go for building permits and information on approval requirements and zoning?

Is there parkland and public access to the lake?

Can you recommend qualified builders and trades?

Yes, there are two parks at Algonquin Heights owned and maintained by the Township of Madawaska Valley.  One provides access to the shore with a footpath and amenity space at the waterfront.  The other is across the road on a dramatic hillside with incredible views of the lake, particularly when the leaves are off.

Yes, we are well connected with many qualified home builders and trades in the area. Please contact us about your building expectations and we will be glad to refer you the appropriate builders and trades to develop your lot.

Are there any special restrictions on home/cottage construction?

How are the lots serviced?

Yes, building covenants apply as well as municipal zoning standards to be respected.  Please contact us for details.

Lots will require on site well and sewage disposal services.  All lots have lanes constructed driveways and cleared building sites.

Are the prices negotiable?

Is financing available?

We can help direct you to financing institutions to assist you in your purchase and building project. Consult your bank if your purchase is for a second dwelling.  Banks typically are more supportive of financing a second dwelling if it is on a year-round public road, which is the case at Algonquin Heights.

No, the advertised prices are not negotiable. HST is in addition to the purchase price.  HST rebates are available if the purchase is ultimately for a principal residence.
