This MacKenzie Beach property has been in the ownership of one family since it was purchased by Roderick MacKenzie in 1896. At MacKenzie Beach the philosophy of this historic family stewardship to tread lightly, carefully integrate new development and activities into the land and not disturb its intrinsic natural values continues. A covenant that means the rugged, dramatic and open nature of the lakeside and mountain landscape that makes up MacKenzie Beach will remain forever protected from development.
A plan has been developed to allow limited and sustainable development of the shoreline while protecting the majority of the land from future development. Only seven per cent of the 140 acre MacKenzie family property will be built on; the remainder will be protected for future generations.
