Muskoka is a beautiful place to visit, and while the majority of visitors come in the summer, it’s a great destination during the fall and winter seasons as well. Being surrounded by trees and water at the best Muskoka resorts will bring you back to nature and relax you from everyday stresses.
Muskoka resorts, not your average cabin
One thing you’ll notice about Muskoka resorts is that they are not the average cabin in the woods. These rentals are larger than some peoples’ houses. For good reason too, Canadians love to entertain and have people over. So oftentimes you’ll see groups of people renting one to enjoy a week of summer fun together.
Lakefront cottage on flat land
If you’re familiar with the area around Muskoka, you’ll know that many of the resorts sit above the water’s edge, providing you with a magnificent view. This lakefront cottage sits on just over an acre of flat land, with 230 feet of water frontage. Between the main cottage and the boat house, this rental will sleep 10 comfortably.
Waterfront lake house
Newly updated, this waterfront lake house sits on 1-3/4 acres, with 260 feet of frontage on Three Mile Lake. With 3 separate outdoor seating sections leading down to the water, you can enjoy the gorgeous sunset views from different elevations. This waterfront lake house sleeps 15 with 6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and 3 half baths.
Bird’s Nest on the Bay
Bird’s Nest is located in Robert’s Bay on Lake Joseph, where the nearest store is a 5-minute car or boat ride away. This cottage and nearby bunkie sleeps 8 and has a path that leads down to the water’s edge from the back balcony, where there is a single slip boat dock. One of the main attractions is the raised balcony that overlooks the water, where you can enjoy your dinner as the sun goes down or your coffee as the sun comes up.
Fun activities any time of year
As mentioned earlier, Muskoka is a great place to visit, with fun activities occurring all year long. Of course, some of these activities can be enjoyed in more than one season, so having a fantastic time is a given, no matter the season.
Summertime is when the area is busiest, and most everything is open, so your options are plentiful. We suggest getting in some fun on the water, such as flyboarding, fishing or boat cruises. If you’d prefer to stay a little drier, why not try out ziplining or tree trekking, bring the kids to Santa’s Village or enjoy one of the local galleries?
Fall in the Muskoka’s is one of the most beautiful sights to see. While the temperatures are starting to drop, you’ll still want to spend your evenings out by the fire pit as you take in the beauty that surrounds you. This is the best time to do your sightseeing, whether by bike, hike, or car, as the leaves are turning colour, and it’s a sight to be seen, especially if you live in the city.
Canadians know how to have wintertime fun, and Muskoka is no different. Ice skate on the Cranberry Ice Trail, one of several ice skating trails, or go fat bike riding in Huntsville or dog sledding at the North Ridge Ranch. These are just the outdoor activities; there’s plenty more wintertime fun to be had indoors by visiting a local brewery, museum or gallery.
