We visited my boyfriends family cabin, we had to use the boat to get there. The cabin was 10 sec from the lake, absolutely stunning lake I must say. Had my first experience with Snapping Turtle, so scary, but kinda fun anyways. Had a few moments of panicking in the water, afraid of loosing my toes, hehe. It's quite and... More

Wonderful scenery and tranquility - a place to truly leave city worries behind. Iconic Ontario Cottage Country getaway - visit if you want the true Canadian experience, but be forewarned about its popularity. While beautiful, you will not be the only one enjoying the lake - so if you don't mind rampant commercialization and crowded waterways, then definitely worth the... More

The lake is stunning with its many small islands and beautiful homes, resorts and cottages. The weather was warm and sunny and the fall colours were at peak. The... More

Such a beautiful lake! I love coming here at any time in the year! I like to sit on the beach and watch the little fish swim around!
