“had a blast”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My wife just had a baby and told me to take a boys weekend - me and my friends went up to Shirley and Haps for the day .... well not only were were treated amazingly but he caught his first Muskey - 20lbs! I have been their guest before and want to say not only is their place great, but the hands on service (Hap helping him debone that muskey!) is amazing.
I recommend this not only as a family place to take the kids, but as a place that you get the family treatment regardless. Cottages are spotless, totally loaded with everything you need, and the whole community there is outstanding.

Thanks again Shirley and Hap!
Here's to another Muskey next season!

I have stayed here a couple of times. The pros are it is lake front with boat rentals great fishing with decent size rooms that are clean. The cons I have found the people at the front desk a bit cranky. It seems as if everytime we ask a question it is an inconvience for them. It also sits right of the 400 hwy and can be a little loud with traffic noise on a busy weekend. All in all I would recommend this location, just don't expect a Hilton. It is a small family run resort and they do that fairly well.

We planned a boys fishing weekend and were very pleased with Muskeys. Dave and Sandy are great and the rooms have everything you require to be comfortable. Fishing, Horseshoes Firepit, hot tub, BBQ and great owners. We will be back and hope to take advantage of their ice fishing package,.

If you like camping and are not looking for everything to be upscale and are budget minded this is the place for you. I have always wanted to stay at this place as I have driven by it 100 times when heading down HWY 400. We do very much like camping and took a room with a kitchenette.
David and Sandy are friendly hosts. The room had a double bed and a twin with a flat screen TV, a sofa (I am presuming it's a pullout), air conditioning (none in the cabins) small table set, fridge, microwave and a hot plate (no stove per se). Just outside the garden doors facing the water we had a deck with table and chairs and a BBQ. This we found quite uniqe and suited us well. The internet we were able to get because we were in room #3 close to the office. You must go to the office for your internet if you do not get a signal in your room. There are few channels to watch and no phone unless you use the outdoor payphone. The bathroom was quite spartan and the ceiling above the shower needed care but hey it's like camp remember. The room was clean enough. Ice is available at 3.50 a bag. We could have gotten our own cottage closer to the water for just 10$ more a night but were not prepared for full out camping so we took the room. You can bring a pet in a room that is for pets and owners only. There are also boat rentals and such so you can pretty much get your camping experience on pretty fast if you like. There is no beach.
We did a day cruise on the 30,000 Island Georgian Queen in Penetanguashine. The tour was $27 a person (65$ for families) for 3.5 hours. Also if you are staying try Foodland as the best buy for groceries and such.
One of the few disappointments we had was that due to our visit being close to a long weekend the 3rd day 49$ special was denied. If we were able to stay the extra day we could have done the last Jazz dinner cruz of the season on the Georgian Queen. Now that would have made us happy and have made our stay really special. Unfortunately our request was denied which left us feeling a little short changed.
We travel to the Toronto area every month and are always looking for a place to stay that we can really feel good about and pass along to others we know who pass that way alot as well.
In all there are many really fancy places in the area if that is what you want. Muskeys does offer an affordable alternative.
However if you are the type that are freaked out by anything less than perfect keep in mind that what you find here will be just like camping at a cottage, nicer camping but camping. If you can't deal with that you are likely looking for something different.
Oh yes, On the other side of the 400 there are 2 stores. Do yourself a favor and go to the one that has the freshly cut meat ( see the sign).
We love to cook our own and very much enjoyed the BBQ outside our door (not all cabins have one). The meat at that place was indead fresh and reasonably priced to boot. The other store had outrageous prices for frozen meat as well as other items you will need.
In all we would check first what to expect pricewise before booking at Muskeys and ask for what you want because they do have some quite a few options from which to choose.

Room Tip: If you want internet get a room near the office. If you want the 3rd day at 49$ as advertised make s...

I had a great time here! My husband and I wanted to get away for a night and do some fishing-we have drove by this place quite a few times and thought it would be a good spot to try. We had an AWESOME TIME! Fishing was amazing..hotel was clean, owners are super sweet...really what more could you ask for? OK so its not a 5 star hotel but you get what you pay for. The Motel is deceiving from the back-doesnt look the greatest BUT rooms are clean and when you come around to the front of it, its a nice spot!!

No problems here, will go back FOR SURE

I would like to drop a quick note to mention what a great time we had on our 3rd annual Fathers Day Weekend Fishing Trip to Muskey's Landing. The accomodations are comfortable, the hosts Sandy and Dave are inviting, the fishing boats are in great shape and the Fishing this year was awesome!! More Northern Pike this year then the last 2 years combined. I think we found the hot spot. Actually there are a few hot spots we discovered. We actually hooked into a 6 pound pickerel. And man were they tastey. The bass, although out of season, kept nailing our pike lures. And they were huge. Great time, great deal, great hosts and most importantly great fishing.
