Cobden — The president of Summerhill Resorts, the new owner of Logos Land, the adjacent Oaks of Cobden golf course, and a portion of the formers Wilderness Tours property, says it was the natural beauty of the area plus its proximity to a major centre which motivated him to “take a closer look” when the properties came up for sale.
“Ottawa is only 90 minutes away,” said Bill McGill, president of the Toronto-based company. Waterfront, in the case of the former Wilderness Tours property, and Astrolabe Lake at Logos Land, also added to the attractiveness of the properties.
The portion of the White Water & Wild Land Tours Ltd. (Wilderness Tours) property acquired by Summerhill Resorts now accommodates 62 trailer sites, six chalets, two cottages/beach houses, a pavilion building, and the Rafters building with accessory recreation facilities and outdoor areas. The Logos Land resort has 236 units including a three-unit motel, condos and cabins, and RV sites.
“We are very excited about acquiring these properties,” said Mr. McGill. “They have very different attributes, each in its own way.”
The Logos Land resort is now up on the Summerhill Resorts website alongside the company’s other properties throughout Ontario.
“The former Wilderness Tours property is a relatively recent acquisition,” said Mr. McGill. “We’re still working to get the website up and running so that we can promote it to the public.”
He said his company plans to continue investing in amenities and infrastructure, subject to the necessary approvals.
“The folks at Renfrew County and Whitewater Region are very good to deal with, which makes it very attractive from an investor’s perspective,” he said.
