Bala Cottage Rentals

In 1868, Thomas Burgess named Bala, Ontario, and today this colorful town is a popular destination for Cottage Country visitors and outdoor enthusiasts four seasons of the year. Bala cottage rentals offer the perfect home base for your family or group as you vacation here.

Activities near Bala Cottage Rentals

Bala has many activities year-round, so be sure to find out what's happening in town during your visit. For example, every year Bala hosts the Bala Cranberry Festival the week after Canadian Thanksgiving. At the festival you’ll experience music, entertainment and the chance to sample every cranberry dish you can imagine.

To explore a cranberry marsh first-hand, catch a shuttle bus from the festival to one of the local marshes for a guided tour. The growers will explain how the berries are grown and harvested, and there’s always the option of browsing the products derived from the versatile cranberry. The Muskoka Lakes Winery in Bala, the only winery of the region, proudly features wines made from local cranberries, along with other world-class fruit wines.

Bala Falls

Bala is located where Lake Muskoka’s waters flow into the Moon River, creating the beautiful Bala Falls. At one time, the water levels of the lake fluctuated eight to nine feet per year, leading to problems in navigating the lake for both settlers and lumber transporters. To control the fluctuation, a dam was built in 1873 at the top of the falls, but that caused flooding. Not long after, a second, flood-control dam with a channel was built, and today the waterfalls created by the dams are known as the North and the South Falls.

These falls provide kayakers and fishermen with exciting challenges that they return for year after year from spring through fall. They promise you’ll have good luck getting a bite from perch, walleye and northern pike, whether you are fly-fishing or bait-casting.

Some Bala accommodations, such as cottage rentals in Bala, may even include a fishing boat. If not, there are places in town to rent a boat for a complete Bala fishing excursion.

The Kee to Bala

Originally called Dunn’s Pavilion, the Kee to Bala is a venue that hosted artists such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong in the 1940s and ’50s; rock musicians like Kim Mitchell, April Wine, Burton Cummings and Jeff Healey in the ’70s; and countless popular bands of the ’80s through today. If your visit to Bala Cottage Country hasn’t yet included a stop at the Kee, check who’s playing. You’ll be attending more than a concert; it will be a full evening of entertainment, dancing and fun. You’ll join six decades’ worth of fans, from the Big Band days at Dunn’s Pavilion to today’s rock, country and pop.
