What a beautiful lake and we really enjoyed the trip there, so quiet and peaceful. It would be nice to just sit out there and watch the world go by.

A very nice cruise around the lake one afternoon. They offered a 2 for 1 on Wednesday!! Was a bit disappointed in their beer selection, when they only had Coors but had a big ad for Flying Monkey a craft beer! Tour was informative of the area shore line.

I stayed on a small island, uninhabited on a permanent basis (well, we don't know that for sure, do we?), in Lake Simcoe in 2011 during a three-week stay in Toronto. Lake Simcoe was definitely a place to relax, almost away from civilization - the trip via a little boat from the port onto the island was basic and peaceful,... More
