Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

One of the many appeals here is the ability to remain or live in Port Hope, enjoying the pleasure of small town living. There are festivals throughout the summer, walks through town have their own pure pleasure, and of course, there’s the Lakeshore with a waterfront trail, harbour and beach. The community itself is located in a quiet residential area of town, skirted by farm fields and larger rural properties. As such, it’s a uniquely peaceful, calming place to live.

Move here and find others from the county and outlying areas, people with whom you’ll discover connections and commonalities. People take an active role in creating a thriving community. It’s not so much a move into a “retirement” home as a shift into a more fitting life, in community with (as someone here puts it) “all good people.” New friendships are formed. Residents of Empire Crossing get a fresh start, renewed by elegant surroundings and good company.
