"Lake Life in a Bottle". Lake of the Woods Brewing Company beer is "like lake life in a bottle," says owner Taras Manzie.

The setting itself is worth the visit. The designated Ontario heritage building has the firehall's original white tile walls, spectacular original tin ceiling, fire fighters' masks hanging on hooks, a firemen's pole, and a 67-foot red brick tower with the original bell.

New Look North Bay Let’s play a game of word association. North Bay: endless forests, lakes of with bass and pike, an outdoorsman’s dream, a place to refuel and restock when camping or cottaging.
