Muskoka Destination Overview


Situated to the north of Toronto, Muskoka boasts natural beauty and scenery on display through all four seasons, so no matter when you visit, you’ll be sure to enjoy your stay.

The region of Muskoka, along with Peterborough County, Haliburton and Kawartha Lakes is known at “cottage country” because of its storybook setting - it's nestled into quaint towns and farming communities. The region has six municipalities, including the towns of Huntsville, Gravenhurst and Bracebridge and the townships of Lake of the Bays, Muskoka Lakes and Georgian Bay. Moose Point 79 and Wahta Mohawk Territory are also part of the district.

If you’re looking for a place to find some peace and quiet, Muskoka provides that with its small villages and communities while still keeping you close enough to urban areas for fun nights out and exciting attractions.

Muskoka has something for everyone with a rich culture, plenty of activities both indoors and outdoors and a variety of shops and restaurants to peruse. Whether you are looking to hike the nature paths, taste the region’s wine and beer, hit the ski slopes or visit a museum, you can do it all in Muskoka.

There are plenty of locations to ski in Muskoka and if you’ve travelled to hit the slopes, nothing could be better than renting a cottage or chalet nearby. It will be a short trip between skiing and your rental in case you need to change clothes, eat or grab a quick nap before heading out to dinner. You might even be able catch a glimpse of the slopes from your rental windows, allowing you to see the snow-covered hills and what condition they are in.

Muskoka boasts more than 25 public golf courses and is considered a golf destination in Canada. If you’ve been looking forward to a vacation on the course, get a rental located close by. Again, this provides easy access between your rental and the course.

Muskoka rental features

Many come equipped with internet, cable television and parking so you still can enjoy the conveniences you’re accustomed to. Vacation rentals also have full kitchens and washers and dryers. After hitting a local grocery store, you can create a home-cooked meal with traditional Muskoka ingredients. When you leave, you won’t have to worry about dragging home dirty clothes because you’ll be able to wash them before you leave. No more hassle trying to keep everything separate when you re-pack your luggage!

Vacation rentals come in a variety of sizes with different numbers of bedrooms so no matter how many people you’re travelling with, everyone will be comfortable and have enough space and privacy.
