Muskoka, Parry Sound and Haliburton are in the heart of Ontario’s “Cottage Country" with over 2.1 million visitors annually. Muskoka is an area populated with several villages and towns, farming communities, lakeside vacation hotels and resorts near golf courses, country clubs and marinas.
The District of Muskoka, central to Ontario’s cottage country, extends from Georgian Bay in the west, to the northern tip of Lake Couchiching in the south, to the western border of Algonquin Provincial Park in the east and just a 2 hour drive north of Toronto. With some 1,600 lakes, this is a popular cottaging destination.
The 3 major population centres in Muskoka are Huntsville, Bracebridge and Gravenhurst with hospitals in both Huntsville and Bracebridge to serve the area. From classic, sought after destinations including Deerhurst and the grandeur of Lake of Bays, to trendy communities such as Port Carling and Bala, there’s something for every taste.
Although Lake Muskoka, Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph are perhaps the most well known, Muskoka is dotted with lakes almost everywhere. And, while Muskoka is the summer escape for many Southern Ontario cottagers, it’s consistently among the most searched Canadian vacation rental destinations, as well. Boats, jet skis, ATV’s and snowmobiles are just a few of the favourite pursuits of those who love this region.
