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.
We would like to thank Rogers TV and Chef D for joining us this summer!
Severn Lodge has welcomed guests that have boated all the way from the Gulf of Mexico, through the Great Lakes, and into our picturesque slice of Cottage Country. Thus, we’ve decided to shine a light on our three favourite Muskoka marinas, as you never know when and where the region’s largemouth bass and northern pike will call loudest.
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.”
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.
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.
Our particularly serene slice of Muskoka is a splendid, family-friendly haven for those who appreciate adventure, exploration, and relaxation. While you’ll never have to leave Severn Lodge to enjoy an authentic, genuinely unforgettable Ontario vacation, many groups choose to branch out to nearby communities to hop aboard one of the top-rated Muskoka boat tours. We cannot blame you if a 90-minute boat cruise along a scenic waterway sounds enticing.
