When to Visit

Each season in Muskoka brings with it a number of outdoor activities to keep you active and entertained, and Peninsula Lake is a prime example. In the summer months, guests to the lake can enjoy fishing for a number of species either off the dock, or from your boat, pack a lunch and tour the 40 miles of boating, or simply swim or lounge at the lakeside basking in the sun. Deerhusrt Resort is just a wuick boat ride away where you can experience world class golfing and savour dishes made with local ingerdiants prepared by award winning chefs. In addition, there are also a number of local trails and scenic lookout points for those looking to take in the natural surroundings that make Muskoka such a special place to visit.

For the winter explorers, ice fishing is very popular. In the winter months, once the ice has been deemed safe to venture out on, you can look out and see several fish huts where fishers will spend hours trying to hook the biggest fish. In Muskoka, snowmobiling is also a popular activity. We are very fortunate to have so many well groomed trails in Muskoka where permit owners can spend the entire day touring the lakes and surrounding areas.

For the Fall guests, prepare to be delighted and amazed by the colours of the trees. Huntsville is a great tourist destination all year round, but the Fall is known to bring hundreds and hundreds of visitors from near and far to experience the incredible spectacle. Huntsville is also rich in maple syrup and a number of producers offer tours through their forests and sugar shacks which is truly a once in a lifetime experience that is fun for all ages!
