Mary Lake Information

Majestic Mary Lake is situated southwest of the town of Huntsville in the townships of Stephenson and Brunel. Access can be gained from Muskoka Rd 10, or from within the quaint village of Port Sydney. Mary Lake is part of the Huntsville lake chain with access to Lake Peninsula, Lake Vernon and Fairy Lake via the Brunel lock system. This chain of lakes grants access to over 40 miles of boating making it very desirable to cottagers and homeowners looking for an adventurous lifestyle.

Home to a number of cottage resorts and lodges and camps, Mary Lake has become a popular lake for cottagers looking for a smaller lake feel with less commercially developed shorelines. Although the lake is smaller than some of those close by, the lake continues to support the growing tourism with dining, shopping, accommodations and marinas all within close proximity.
