Snuggle up in the shade of the historic lighthouse (currently under repairs) and gaze out across the water.

Spruce Lane Farmhouse at Bronte Creek

Located away from busier areas of the park, Spruce Lane Farmhouse sets the stage for old-time romance and makes our hearts dream of simpler times. Wander through the woods on the nearby Ravine Trail. As you pass under the maple trees, the world just seems to slow down.
