Things to do in Muskoka

Spring and Summer in Muskoka. The prime seasons for all outdoor activities or just relaxation on one of our crystal clear clean lakes.

If you want to avoid the high rates of the resorts but still enjoy all Muskoka has to offer you should book with us.

We have operated our little motel here for 20 years now and have an intricate knowledge of trails, conservation reserves, parks, beaches, canoe routes and little known wilderness areas around  Muskoka and beyond.

The bigger chain hotels and resorts cannot provide you with this knowledge. We are hikers and canoe trippers ourselves, this is the reason we live in this paradise called Muskoka.

Make our motel your holiday base , save a buck and explore or enjoy from here. We can help you discover the  Muskoka you are looking for.

Winter in Muskoka is fantastic. Snowshoe or ski the trails and backcountry. Ice fish for your dinner or just relax and take in the sights!
