I spent four days at Lumina in early July with my family, including a 2 year old. We had an amazing time. The lake is perfect. The recreational opportunities are excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. Many of these attributes exist in multiple hotels and resorts in the area, however Lumina provides visitors with something more elusive: Authenticity. Where else can you stay in a nearly century old resort with camp and family traditions dating back decades? We met families during our stay who had been vacationing at Lumina for over twenty years! There are staff members who vacationed as children, only to return to work during the summers. At Lumina you get a rustic cottage experience, amazing food (Steak, Crab Cakes, Rack of Lamb - with a great wine list too!), access to a great lake, plus all the activities you would associate with an "up north" Canadian experience. You also get access to people who love Lumina, love Lake of Bays, and love Muskoka, and these people will help you fit right in, lose your city stress, and get back to nature without roughing it. My whole family emerged relaxed, full of memories and new friends, happy and satisfied. We are already planning a return trip. Highly recommended for families, as the organized activities for the kids are terrific, and they ensure everyone in the family has a chance to unwind.
