This mostly rural municipality lays on the eastern edge of the Quinte area. Farms, hobby farms, acreage and large lots offer a variety of lifestyles and price ranges. Generally a bit more economical than other rural areas as most of the farm land is not prime. The Town of Deseronto and hamlet of Lonsdale are also located within Tyendinaga.

Shannonville Rd. bisects the Municipality from north to south. This straight paved road offers quick and easy commuting access from Tyendinaga to the 401 and Belleville.

Tyendinaga Township is bounded on the south by the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory. This historic community is worth a look if you want rural at an affordable price.
