Welcome To The Resort Village of Kannata Valley
Set amongst a photographer’s dream backdrop of rolling hills, lush greenery, sparkling water, and sandy beaches, The Resort Village of Kannata Valley is a stunning, picturesque, friendly village that originally formed part of Charles Cowen’s homestead in the later part of the 1900’s.
Family life at the lake provides a profound opportunity to create wonderful lasting memories of gatherings with friends and family. The sounds of boats traversing the water in search of the all-illusive bragging rights to the biggest fish, water skiers, sea-doos, kayaks, paddle boards, and all things water related fill the air of the morning, afternoon and evening surroundings. With the sound of joyous laughter, screams of delight, barbeque aroma’s, music and so much more, this resort village is a sought-after location and has experienced construction of new homes and upgrades to existing cottages.
In the past, the popular places of Cowen’s Beach and Cook’s Beach were administered by the RM of Longlaketon No. 219. In September of 1966, the Village of Kannata Valley was incorporated and the designation of “Village” to “Resort Village” occurred in 1988 with the completed registration in 2007.
