Our first time not actually just driving through the area, we were kicking ourselves that we hadn't taken the time to explore before. It's rugged and green, by turns quiet at the lake shore at the end of a trail and full of life by the beaches and boat launches. The perfect spot just a couple of hours' drive from... More

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

Words can't express the feeling you have and experience. It is like tonic for your soul. Regardless of the season there is always a reason to escape to the lake.

This is one of the most beautiful lakes in Ontario. The best way to discover its beauty is on a steam boat tour if you do not have your own boat. Lake Muskoka is the perfect place to enjoy Ontario's country side and the cottage life. We went mid October and seeing the red, yellow and orange leaves made the... More

I had the opportunity to stay at the Marriottt which overlooks Lake Muskoka at the end of September. I also took a two hour cruise on the steamship called the Segwun. 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
