Our neighborhood:

Milverton is a friendly town of 1,800 people with all the modern conveniences needed in town from a pub, pizza shop and grocery store for food, gym, ice rink and walking trail for exercise, variety store, library and mennonite thrift store for movies/books/conveniences, while being very close to larger cities like the internationally renowned Stratford (home of the Shakespeare Festival) 30 minutes away. Kitchener/Waterloo a city of 500,000 30 minutes away and Toronto 1.5 hours away.  We are 2.5 hours to the world famous Niagara Falls and 2.5 hours to multiple border crossings to the United States (Buffalo and Detroit).

Its the perfect way to stay in a quiet small town while being based close to the Great Lakes, beaches, provincial parks and largest cities in Canada.

You can also enjoy learning about the Amish and Mennonite way of life as many of the surrounding farmland and neighbours are of Amish and Mennonite background, including many who still travel via horse and buggy and farm without electricity or tractors.
