Georgian Bay, a place of breathtaking natural beauty and source of artistic inspiration. Its lush hardwood forests and distinctively rugged Precambrian Shield have been muses to the likes of the Group of Seven, Ed Bartram, and many others over time.

As an Artist in the Park, we invite you to spend a week in the iconic landscape of Georgian Bay Islands National Park. Based out of our new rustic cabins on the western shore of Beausoleil Island, you'll be inspired by the park's natural beauty and cultural riches. Sound interesting?
