Brighton by the Bay

Situated on the north-east shore of Lake Ontario and nestled within one of the best protected harbours on the lake, visitors to the area fall in love with the opportunity to enjoy year-round activities including boating, golfing, fishing, quaint bed and breakfasts, antique shops, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and bird watching, all within a truly welcoming and friendly small town community.

Long known as a summer resort town, the official ‘Gateway to Presqu'ile Park’ welcomes each season with special events and activities from the Water Fowl Festival in the spring to AppleFest in the fall. Visit Proctor House Museum where you can glimpse into the life of a powerful Brighton family whose business interests played an important role in the town for more than a century. Take a step back in time at the Memory Junction Railway Museum.

Set against the natural beauty of Presqu'ile Bay, you will find an established adult lifestyle community that marries small town charm with large city amenities like grocery stores, a curling rink, an arena, banks, a liquor store as well as many restaurants, boutiques and antique stores. We are also very proud of getting our own health care facility ( and the hospital and shopping malls are near by.

And remember, living steps from Presqu'ile Provincial Park and the Bay of Quinte means that the opportunity to bird watch, sail, fish or go for a long walk are literally at your door. We have eight (8) golf courses within 20 minutes drive and the Presquile Provincial Park is less than a kilometer away with four (4) beaches and a large campground to accommodate any family.
