Cobourg Jail was one of the biggest of its time, holding up to one hundred inmates. The jail was finally closed to inmates in 1998 and acquired by private interests in early 1999, purchased from the County of Northumberland who acted under the Provincial Government of Ontario to operate the Correctional Institute.
It has since been converted into a luxury 20+ Room Boutique, Heritage Inn.
Soon a portion of the old Cobourg Jail is being converted into luxury Condominiums and Townhouses which, being on the last available land on Cobourg Harbour, will be highly desirable. Prices will range from $750,000 to $1 Million plus.
This is a beautiful 1906 Georgian Manor house that has big bright rooms as well as the jail themed rooms for that authentic jail feel . Lots to do in Cobourg . Places to eat and entertainment abound , especially in the summer . We are steps from the 5th nicest beach in Canada. We are in the downtown on the harbour and steps away from Victoria Hall and the Heritage downtown. Our own Pub/Restaurant is 75 yards away at 38 Covert St which is an easy walk. Shopping and restaurants for many tastes and what ever tickles your fancy or your palates. We of course have all the usual fast food restaurants a short drive or bus ride or Cab Fare away. We are 60 Mile east of Toronto about a mile south of Highway 401 which runs east to Kingston, Ottawa, Montreal or all of Quebec. West, we have Highways 401, 407, 404, 400, 403 and the Queen Elizabeth Way connecting the GTA and all of Ontario right down to Niagara Falls. The GTA (Toronto) is currently the fastest growing city in N. America.
