Shanty Bay

This tight-knit community will quickly win you over with its quaint, definition-of-small-town charm.

Shanty Bay

Shanty Bay gets its name from the small shanty town that formed around refugees fleeing slavery in America. That once small settlement has transformed into a picture-perfect lakeside town for those who want their cottage lifestyle with urban amenities. 
 
Minutes from north Barrie, Shanty Bay is surrounded by the blue waters of Georgian Bay, acres of open farmland, and several great green golf courses. This tight-knit community will quickly win you over with its quaint, definition-of-small-town charm. It’s only a short drive to enjoy all of Barrie’s dining and urban charm, or to visit the growing city of Orillia.
