We have been vacationing at Lumina Resort for the past 16 years. When we started, our kids were 8 and 10 years of age. We have always enjoyed our time at Lumina.
The individual cabins give you privacy and are cleaned and made up each day. When our family was larger, we got a three bedroom cabin with a living room and a deck that overlooked the lake. An excellent place to spend your time reading. There is a small fridge in the cabins to allow you to keep drinks and snacks that you might want but, with the very large breakfast and incredibly tasty dinners, you often do not need to much to eat during the middle of the day. The meals are spectacular.
The sandy beach is novel on Lake of Bays as the terrain is very rocky. The shallow sandy shore make it an excellent place for small children to build sand castles and forts, or just move sand around. They can wander into the very shallow water to chase the ducks that live nearby. Out farther from the shore are floating docks and a floating trampoline for the older kids. There is also a volleyball net in the water.
We take a boat and a SeaDoo with us and slips are provided. The marina is just across the bay for ramping the boats in and out.
There are daily activities planned that both children and adults can take part in so that you can get to know your neighbours at the resort. There is a wildlife show every week which is always fascinating - how often do you get a good close look at a wolf cub, a skunk, a turkey vulture, a water snake and a skunk? There are adult activities in the club room in the evenings to round out your day in the sun.
Your trip can be as active or laid back as you want.
