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.

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?!”
It’s no secret that the many lakes and ponds that dot the eastern rim of Ontario’s Georgian Bay are teeming with a variety of hungry species, such as northern pike, crappie, and pickerel. However, bass fishing in Ontario remains the ticket. Gloucester Pool fishing, while only one small aspect of an all-inclusive escape to award-winning Severn Lodge, will always be a massive draw for families from all across the province.
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.
We are so grateful that Severn Lodge has been endorsed as one of the top-rated wedding venues in Ontario, according to WeddingWire, Vaughn Berry Photography, and countless brides and grooms who have been married here. We would be so pleased with the opportunity to prepare a proposal.
