Sharbot is a quaint little town with all the necessary amenities. Sharbot Lake is named after a First Nations Chief named Francis Chabot, who was Mohawk, and his wife Algonquin. The lake has two distinctive sections, an eastern basin, and a western basin. The lake covers over 1,700 acres and has a maximum depth of 105 feet. It is home to a variety of fish species including largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, walleye, lake trout, perch, and other panfish.
The well-maintained K&P and Trans Canada trails, formerly the rail bed of the Kingston and Pembroke Railway. The miles and miles of scenic trails, accessed directly across the street, are great for hiking, cycling, cross-country skiing, and ATVing.
Minutes from the house, there is a well-stocked grocery store, a pharmacy, a healthcare center, and a bank. The Cardinal Cafe, which is within walking distance, offers great coffee and homemade breakfast/lunch items. There is also a fantastic new micro-brewery called Kick & Push (7-minute drive) as well as a fantastic store, called Seed to Sausage, which makes artisan cured meats created from local, ethically-raised, hormone and antibiotic-free pork. The Belong restaurant, owned by Brad Long, one of Canada's top chefs, will be opening soon.
