Luxury Lake of Bays — Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel
Beautiful Lake of Bays is the perfect destination from which to explore everything that’s great about Muskoka. From here you’re an easy drive to world-class resorts such as Deerhurst, famous as the site of Canada’s G8 summit of world leaders in 2010, as well as some of the best open water for boats and personal watercraft.
Those who enjoy paddling canoes and kayaks are also spoilt for choice, thanks in particular to the proximity of Ontario’s largest provincially protected wilderness, Algonquin Park, which offers an endless variety of routes (as well as numerous hiking and biking trails) and overnight camping opportunities. The area boasts numerous excellent attractions, too. Perhaps the most famous is the SS Bigwin, a refurbished steamship that once served Bigwin Island and which today runs superb sightseeing cruises around the Lake of Bays as far as the community of Dwight.
And then of course there’s Lake of Bays’ superb shopping. Any seasoned shopper to the region knows by heart the key places to pick up great souvenirs, gifts and clothing, including Robinsons General Store in Dorset, Algonquin Outfitters (also in Huntsville and other locales) and, of course, Yummies in a Jar in Baysville for its sweet or savoury treats.
Whether you’re here for the summer, a week or a weekend getaway – or even looking to purchase a cottage or luxury real estate and move here full-time – let Luxury Lake of Bays be your personal advisor and guide to the very best this magnificent part of Muskoka has to offer!
