Luxury Dorset – Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel
Located at the eastern-most corner of Lake of Bays – and close to Algonquin Park and the Haliburton Highlands – Dorset is one of the most-visited villages in Muskoka. Here you’ll find much to do, from exploring attractions such as the Dorset Heritage Museum and the Lake of Bays Marine Museum, home to the heritage SS Bigwin steamship, as well as the Dorset Tower, a viewing platform offering superb views over the lake and the area’s dense forests.
The village also has the distinction of being home to one of the most famous general stores in Canada. Visit Robinson’s General Store pretty much any day of the week during the summer season and you’ll be amazed at the crowds passing through the old building purchasing everything from groceries to cottage accessories to souvenirs and clothing (check out their great collection of traditional moccasins!).
The village and the surrounding area is not only popular for cottagers, it’s also increasingly fashionable for those on the look-out for a full-time luxury waterfront home to settle down in, too.
But whether you’re here for just a visit or live in the area full-time, let Luxury Lake of Bays be your guide to all that’s great in Dorset!
