The breathtaking region of Muskoka is encompassed by three large freshwater lakes – Rosseau, Joseph and Muskoka – with Canadian Shield granite surrounding to enhance the miraculous beauty of the Muskoka region. Touted for its enormous cottages and illustrious living, Muskoka is, without a doubt, the epicentre of Canada’s cottage and recreational living.
With approximately 1,600 lakes and only a 90 minute drive north from Toronto, if you are searching for serenity, the Muskoka region is where you are certain to find it.

During the spring, summer and fall, the influx of cottagers and tourists transforms this already boisterous region into the ‘place to be’.
Bala is an intriguing small town located in the western part of the Muskoka region. Known for its abundance of cranberries and simplistic appeal, Bala is another haven that cottagers have been flocking to.
