The Harrington Lake estate, on Lac Mousseau (between Lac Meech and Lac Phillipe) has been the official country retreat of the Prime Minister of Canada since Diefenbaker suggested that he needed a quiet place to go fishing (in 1959). Access to this estate is blocked by RCMP, but the staff at the Meech Lake Visitor Center were only too eager to show it to us on Google Earth. (Click Globe/Map icon to open Google Map)
