Our family had their first trip to this cottage. BEAUTIFUL quite lake. Excellent amenities for the price. We spent so much time paddling fishing and relaxing. My boys want to move there! Lots of great wildlife viewing too. We would definitely return again.

We are Muskoka residents and have not stayed in any of the seven resortcabins, but for years when we wanted a special gourmet meal, we would visit The Norseman Restaurant. This year we noticed their sign referred to it as The Norseman Lakeside Bistro and we erroneously assumed it had changed management and was a pub like so many other... More

Just got back from a fantastic time at Walker Lake Resort. They have everything we wanted. My husband and I kayaked together; the kids loved the stand up paddleboards and jumping on the water trampoline. Swimming was fun for everyone.

we were in this cottage on May, the cottage was perfect, we use the BBQ everyday, the rooms were small but good enough, there were thousands of mosquitoes outside during the day that we couldn't stay outside for a long time, but if you use mosquito repellent, none of them bite you. we use the boats everyday, it was fantastic

Our family recently stayed at this cozy resort in the wonderful Huntsville area. The cottage (The Cedar), although a bit on the rustic side, is ideally set on the the waterfront of Walker Lake.

What can I say about the Norsemen and Walker Lake Cottages? After travelling the world time and time again we find ourselves returning to the small town of Huntsville for its charm and hospitality. Although we have a cottage just 30 min south we opt to stay and dine at the Norseman during the special times of the year. The... More

Norseman resort is a good place to come to visit and stay over. It is a very friendly place to stay. It is a little old fashion and the WIFI is very weak!!

We stayed for 2 nights with friends and had side by side cottages, The Birch and Cedar. Our wives are not used to "roughing it" but these units were acceptable for them. Basically clean throughout the interior and a little old or well used looking. Beautiful view of the lake through floor to ceiling windows...unfortunately, the big patio door glass... More

We've been here a few times in late summer and fall. It is an old-fashioned slice of cottage country, and all the better for it. There are six or seven cottages along the lovely (and usually quiet) lake, and an evening dining restaurant (which is very good). The cottages are not glitzy, have no TVs or Jacuzzis, just homey.
