The Kingswood access road leads to Kingswood cottage at the Mackenzie King Estate. This 231-hectare country estate belonged to Canada’s 10th and longest-serving prime minister, William Lyon Mackenzie King.
The Kingswood and Moorside cottages, faithfully restored and rich in artifacts, are open to visitors in the summer. The main cottage, guest cottage and garage are accessible by the Kingswood access road.
