About fifty years ago, the Brown family discovered and purchased a little piece of Canadian paradise on a small lake tucked away from the highway, just outside Parry Sound, Ontario. As the family grew so did their love for this land, lake and lifestyle.
About four years ago, brothers Phil and Steve Brown happened upon two pristine, untouched lakes with breath-taking waterfront acreage, and an idea took root. Steve, an accomplished entrepreneur and Phil, an acclaimed golf course developer, decided to purchase the land and Clear Lake Estates was born.
Clear Lake Estates’ mission is to develop cottage country’s best kept secret responsibly. With owners who have a passion for the area, the development is in good hands. With a well-planned vision and careful consideration to preserving the eco-system, families can build their dream cottage and enjoy the natural surroundings for many generations.
