About

My family bought a little house in Coe Hill but we never see it enough.

It seems like forever between visits, so I’ve started this on-line effort to keep connected to this little piece of heaven in northern Hastings County.

Please enjoy the site, offer up comments and send along any Coe Hill related information — including photos — you’d like to see posted. Email: coehillworld@gmail.com

    Hi Keven,
    Could you add a link to the Apsley Voice on your site? We do cover events and distribute in Coe Hill. I think those, like yourself, who can’t make it in the winter would appreciate being kept up to date.
    Site:
    apsleyvoice.com

    Comment: you should change “Mail…” to E-mail” if that is what you are after.
    Good clean site.
    Till…

    Just noticed your website and thought I would mention the fact that my Wife and I have a small Family restaurant in Coe Hill called the Coe Hill Country Kitchen where we serve Breakfast and lunch.
    Our hours are 7am-2pm Tues. – Friday and 7am- 3pm on Saturday and 8am -3pm on Sundays. And we are also doing well with sledders this winter.

      Shawn:

      Thanks for the comment… send me a couple of photos of sleds lined up outside the restaurant and I’ll post them. And don’t forget to ask someone to take a pick of you and your crew behind the counter . . .

    I used to work at the municipal office and I remember you coming into the office (TO Pay Taxes). I was the tax collector.
    You can come up to your place in Coe Hill now and help feed some of these black flies. They seem to be many this year. Have a good summer.

    Thank you for being so supportive of posting items for Coe Hill!
    I always thought we needed a news center…I check this site all the time and keep wondering what we can do to make it so that everyone knows about this gold mine?
    Perhaps we can get Winnie Seaborn to write about it in her Coe Hill News Article?
    Thanks Again Kevin,

    Hi there
    We are thinking of driving to Coe Hill from Toronto to visit a relative later this year. What is the latest time of year you think we should do this? We are fairly flexible – October to early December. Appreciate any advice you can give.
    Thanks
    Christine

      If you’re coming north for a fall visit, I’d say think about as early in October as possible, to see the trees after the foliage turns colour. i’m hoping coehillworld.come viewers can offer you other suggestions.

    Hi Kevin. I was born and raised in Coe Hill. Spent a lot of time at the rink – I hear its changed a lot. Do you have any pics what it looks like today? Seems like Coe Hill has become popular over the years. I left there 33 years ago but still love to come back to visit. Do they still have the snow mobile races at the lake any ways. Nice site. Keep up the good work bh

    Coe Hill is a beautiful little hamlet – I was raised not too far from there between Owenbrook and Lasswade. Am going to share your site with some cousins. Would be interested in any posts you receive.
