Stephen Leacock Museum - House on water

Stephen Leacock, Canada's beloved humourist spent his most creative time in what he coined as Lake Simcoe Country.

The success of his Elements of Political Science and his first satirical books Literary Lapses, Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town and Arcadian Adventures of the Idle Rich allowed him to move from his family's summer house at Sibbald Point, Lake Simcoe and over time develop his own lakeside retreat at Old Brewery Bay, where Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching join.
