Fall Getaways in Ontario in Port Severn

A stunning aerial view of the Ontario fall foliage and it's mirror-like reflection on Gloucester Pool.

Although we are firmly within the dog days of summer, autumn is just around the bend and quickly approaching. Within a matter of weeks, the green-covered canvas of Muskoka will make way for rust-coloured hues of amber and orange, just in time for leaf peepers everywhere. As cooler temperatures become more commonplace, morning fog will linger into the afternoon, and you may find a bit of frost within the forest shadows before sunrise. Embedded within the heart of this autumn splendour, residing on the beautiful shores of Gloucester Pool, Severn Lodge, Muskoka’s premier all-inclusive family resort, is the perfect place for a fall getaway in Ontario. 

Things to Do in Muskoka | Take in the Fall Colours

Arguably the most spectacular elemental features found in Muskoka during autumn are the vibrant and captivating fall colours. After all, our neck of the woods is known for its natural beauty, rife with colourful woodlands and shimmering lakes and rivers. Thankfully, the most prominent way to immerse yourself in the scenic grandeur of the Georgian Bay and Muskoka lake area is to hop in the car and go for a drive! 

One of the most awe-inspiring fall colour corridors is close to Severn Lodge and brings you along on a whimsical tour of Big Chute, Port Severn, and of course, the illustrious Georgian Bay. With miles of seemingly endless coastline amid ruggedly elegant landscapes dotted with quaint towns and unique villages, you’ll fall in love with this picturesque playground. Pay a visit to the locally-owned shops, boutiques, and eateries or move incognito while filling your camera with a bevy of gorgeous photos. No matter your choice, you’ll find the makings of a quintessential Ontario fall getaway in the heart of cottage country.
