The ice has melted and the waters are high but there is still not better place to be for me. Best seen via boat to look at the gorgeous villas on the water there is still plenty to do by car or foot. Loads of trails and docks and restaurants.

Even in the winter, Lake Muskoka does not fail to disappoint. There are nice hiking trails around Lake Hardy and a great restaurant overlooking Lake Muskoka called the Creative Plate, just outside of Gravenhurst.

We went in the winter so it was all frozen. But absolutely stunning and peaceful. Just taking a walk around the lake is good enough in the winter.

Definitely a great place to relax. Have a Cottage up here and go up every year for staying there, fishing, playing outdoor sports, BBQ'ing, motorboating, etc. Always a fun and great place to visit.

Perfect temperatures, bright sunny skies, great trails and beautiful scenery along the fantastic snowmobile trails. What a great way to wind down the season then to share a ride on the trails with family. Great times to remember in these lovely surroundings.

The lake is a great getaway with not a whole lot to do. Great if you are on a date and you like each other. The water was really clean when I went and I hope it still is.
