Escaping Toronto in Lake Simcoe

Make a splash in Ontario's lake country by booking Lake Simcoe vacation rentals this season. This pretty dash of water less than an hour's drive north from Toronto has been drawing lovers of the outdoors for decades. They come by summer to whiz between the wooded bays on kayaks, to scuba beneath the surface, or to tour the historic locks of the Trent-Severn Waterway. Others come by winter to cast the ice-fishing rods, or to snowshoe through the trees. All-in-all, it's a chance to sample wilder Canada just a stone's throw from the metropolis.

Things to do

Uncovering heritage in Lake Simcoe

You could seek out the pretty chalets and Lake Simcoe vacation rentals in Barrie on the western shores of the water, where Kempenfelt Bay hosts beaches and yacht-forested harbors. The charming town also comes packed with Canadian heritage _ check out the MacLaren Art Centre and the huge al fresco Spirit Catcher standing tall above the downtown area. Then it's time to move to Orillia, a break in the historic Trent-Severn Waterway. That's where you'll discover the elegant exhibits of the Stephen Leacock Museum, and the chip-slapping poker tables of the Casino Rama.

Activities

Loads to explore in Lake Simcoe

Canoes at the ready, kayaks primed for action, Lake Simcoe awaits. This small body of water north of Toronto is one of the top outdoorsy hotspots within reach of the big city. It draws all manner of outdoorsy adventurer throughout the year, whether that mean Nordic skiers after bouts of fresh snowfall, or sport fishers when the sun's shining.

Weather

Book Lake Simcoe vacation rentals anytime

Lake Simcoe might get busier during the summer months of June, July, and August, but that doesn't mean it's always the best time to visit. Coming then will mean the hottest temperatures for hitting the beaches around Barrie, or boating over the lake, but the sultry days tend to start as early as May and continue on until September, too. A winter trip also promises to be an experience. You can come between December and March to snowshoe through the woods in complete seclusion, or watch ice fishers ply their trade.

Natural features

On the doorstep of wild Ontario in Lake Simcoe

Lake Simcoe is like a stepping stone between the Muskoka lakes and the sprawl of suburban Toronto. It sits just north of the metropolis, spreading out with its sloshing waters and little islets before the earnest start of the Huron bays. Its own banks are dressed in woodland and come spotted with beaches here and there, and there are countless other worthy reserves in the nearby region. Just take the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands to the north, a land where American black bears and beavers can be seen amid the rocky riverbeds.
