Anglers with the fortune of testing their skills on Gloucester Pool will soon learn there are a plethora of species to target; and endless Muskoka beauty around every bend. Here, we showcase some of the most popular.
To say that the Muskoka region of Ontario is a historical place feels like somewhat of an understatement. With its rugged granite ridgelines, sparkling waterways, and iconic woodlands, it's easy to understand how Muskoka's standing as a spectacular recreational hub sometimes overshadows a few of the more chronological aspects of our beloved community.
Severn Lodge, an award-winning lakeside resort, is a one-stop destination for families actively searching for a truly unique all-inclusive getaway—one that offers 100 acres of private land and over 700 metres of waterfront property. We’ve compiled 30 fun things to do in Muskoka with kids. While pleasingly remote, the lodge is also chock full of modern amenities and indoor delights.
Autumn’s long-awaited arrival draws near, and there is ample time to book a last-minute fall getaway to Southern Ontario’s traditional Severn Lodge, a recent recipient of TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice award for “The Best of the Best.”
There’s never been a more suitable time to escape Toronto en route to Severn lodge, one of the best lake resorts for families in Canada. The water’s warm, the sun is shining, and the property is calling your name. Oh, and the food has never tasted better.
Spend your days hooking bass, exploring the property’s 100 woodland acres, and motoring on the lake with the Breckbill family on “Sevlo,” a 1937 Ditchburn motor launch. It has taken decades to become one of the premier Muskoka attractions—an ongoing effort that spans generations. As a family-owned and operated venture, every last detail is perfected to ensure that your loved ones return home feeling wholly rejuvenated, exclaiming: “Can we go back next week?!”
Our friendly, talented team is dedicated to fostering long-lasting memories for families from all across the province. One of the many ways to create enduring memories together is to explore this densely-forested, lake-spattered region on a bicycle. Muskoka cycling has risen exponentially in popularity over the past decade, as people continuously connect with other bicycle enthusiasts via online clubs. Even families of cyclists are starting to get into the act!
We share in the excitement as we all anticipate the rejuvenating dive into Gloucester Pool’s azure blue water and exploring the property’s 100 acres of woodland trails. But, first, we must ensure that our on-site Muskoka hiking trails are clear of brush and debris. For decades, families from all across Ontario have been travelling to Severn Lodge to experience something truly unique.
Yes, Severn Lodge is a world-class, all-inclusive family resort, but we’re also centrally located to a variety of off-site attractions, including several top-rated Muskoka golf courses. While rare, some families (particularly ones with teenagers or adult-aged children) do occasionally go off-site for 18 holes of championship golf.
As we surge ahead into a new decade, there are currently four craft breweries in Muskoka—they’re located in Torrance, Gravenhurst, Bracebridge, and Baysville, respectively. Ranking breweries is unquestionably challenging as each Muskoka beer drinker has a unique flavour palate, not to mention preferences in taproom style. Location is equally as important, especially when you’re vacationing with the family.
