Here’s what some of our lovely residents and guests have to say about this place:

“What I like about Iroquois Falls is the small town feel. Everyone is so friendly, and it’s a slow pace environment…unlike a big city where no one has time for each other. Though, my favourite part is how close you are to nature.” - Isabelle Desroches originally from Penetanguishene, Ontario

“The main thing that I love, and everyone loves about Iroquois Falls is the people! The community is so friendly, welcoming and warm. Everyone is helpful and trustworthy, and you never walk past someone without getting a smile. It’s a great place to be.” – Wendy Yu, Owner of the Silver Grill Restaurant

“This is a beautiful area, away from the hustle and bustle. When my family comes here, we really get into nature. The town is secluded, yet also close to many places that you can take day trips to. There is a lot to see and do and we make friends every single time we come up here. It keeps us coming back!” - Karen Reid, town guest

“Iroquois Falls offers you everything. It’s perfect for the hunter or fisherman. It’s great for canoe, kayak or boat rides in the evening. It is quiet and serene; yet you are less than one hour from all the box stores you need and an airport that can fly you away to anywhere you need to go.” – Jean-Paul Proulx, born and raised in Iroquois Falls
