While In Muskoka, Step Out of the Cottage and Into The Wild

An article in the Globe & Mail by Andrew Cruickshank

“After a day of adventuring, you need a place to lay your head. Camping is an option in Algonquin, but for those who prefer the support of a good mattress, there are a number of options in the Huntsville area. For an authentic cabin experience, check out Cedar Grove Lodge. Operating since 1927, the resort stretches along 450 metres of Peninsula Lake’s picturesque shoreline. Rent a canoe, kayak, rowboat, paddleboard or windsurfer and explore the shimmering waters. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, take a bounce on the resort’s water trampoline or a whirl around the lake on a free water ski or tube ride. At the end of the day, curl up in front of your private log cabin’s wood-burning fireplace and relax.”

Why Log Cabins Are The New Beach Resort

By Sabrina Maddeaux

“Trust us: These six wintery lodges and log-cabin resorts will have you rethinking hot vacays for good.

This year, trade in ocean views for cozy fireplaces and sandy beaches for memorable adventures in snowshoeing, skiing and snowmobiling at a historic log cabin resort. Best of all, you can often skip splurging on airfare and find excellent deals when housing the entire fam in a cabin with multiple rooms.

Cedar Grove Lodge, Ontario
Escape to the beautiful Cedar Grove Lodge resort on Peninsula Lake in Muskoka, Ont. The family-owned destination has log cottages with stone fireplaces that are ideal for both romantic weekends and escapes from the city with the entire family. Feeding the whole crew is a lot easier when three meals a day (with such mouthwatering menu options as organic mac ‘n cheese for the kids and roast prime rib for adults) are included with the price of accommodation, which starts at $122 per person per night. The resort offers a plethora of winter equipment, such as cross-country skis, snowshoes, skates, toboggans, hockey sticks and more (free of charge!), so you can fully explore the 10 kilometres of ski trails and lake complete with an ice-fishing hut. Warm up with indoor amenities that include arcade games, shuffleboard and pool tables……”

Stay at Cedar Grove Lodge

Sample a Taste of Everything in Muskoka

A Blog Post and Review by Dave and Deb of theplanetD.com

” “They will tear you apart if you call it The Muskokas.” As I referred to it during our lunch in Huntsville. “It is Muskoka, not The Muskokas” as I’ve been foolishly referring to it for years! There you go, and now you know. Either way, Muskoka is beautiful and contrary to popular belief, it is open all year long!   …

We set our sights on Huntsville, Ontario for our Winter Sampler. Huntsville is in the heart of cottage country and has ranked #1 by National Geographic as the Best Trips of Summer. We all know that Muskoka is the premier cottage country in Canada attracting celebrities like Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks but contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t close up after the leaves fall. As a matter a fact, winter in Muskoka is magical.

…(W)e checked in to Cedar Grove Lodge for three nights of winter fun. Cedar Grove is a member of the independently owned and operated Resorts of North Muskoka. It’s a welcome change to the large resorts, offering guests a more intimate setting with all the amenities of four star service. Our spacious cabin had a wood  burning stone fireplace, a luxurious bathroom with slate heated floors, and a jet tub. Its location directly on the lake made for a picture perfect retreat….”

A Girls’ Weekend Getaway is the Perfect Way to Stay Connected

A Review and Blog Post by dipdiva.ca

“Connection is something we all strive for, but sometimes forget to maintain. A girls’ weekend getaway is the perfect way to stay connected to the ones that keep you sane. “A good friend is a connection to life – a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.” (Lois Wyse). But planning the perfect girls’ weekend getaway can feel like you’re trying to herd cats, so here are a few key points to keep in mind when looking for the ideal place to book your getaway:

delicious food
comfortable accommodations
activities onsite or close by
beautiful scenery
private ( laugh till 3 am without bothering anyone)

We checked all these boxes and more when we were invited for a girls’ weekend getaway to Cedar Grove Lodge on Peninsula Lake in beautiful Muskoka, Ontario. This resort is a home away from home, but so much better. Included in our stay were three home-cooked meals a day and a comfortable cottage with log fireplace and gorgeous views of the lake and grounds. The Fleming family have been the owners of this little piece of heaven since 1927, so they know a thing or two about how to make guests feel welcomed and cared for during their stay. They take pride in offering their guests a unique and relaxing experience – which is why so many of their guests return year after year….”

“Just got back from a 5 day stay.  Can’t say enough about how great the experience was.  Cabin was clean, comfortable, well maintained and no issues.  Staff were fantastic.  Even after a snowfall they are out there clearing the drives, porches and sanding to ensure a slip free vacation.  All staff spend all the time you need with them, they are pleasant and helpful.  The meals were top notch, well above expectations, and the wait staff were attentive, interesting, but not overbearing.  We found the experience to be exactly as advertised – how nice! “

~ Rod and Pat ~

“This is my 4th visit since Sept 2020 and the great staff, wonderful food, ambiance and love of nature keep me coming back.  Sitting in a cabin right on a lake with a glass of wine and viewing pristine snow and bright sunshine is as good as it gets.  We love walking on the crunchy snow on the frozen lake, sometimes even seeing a deer sprinting across.  Each visit is very different and this year we took advantage of the games room, trying out the various activities.  See you next year.”

~ Troudy ~

“My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing stay the week before Thanksgiving (2021).  The weather was mostly warm and sunny.  We had a great boat cruise around the lake this time with Garry.  The food was awesome as usual.  We didn’t mind picking up our food and eating in our cottage.  Each night we had a fire and ate dinner by the fireplace, which was lovely.  Nice to see Bonnie and the Fleming family again.  We look forward to spending another vacation at the Grove.”

~ Victoria ~ 

“Dear Cedar Grove, we loved every minute of our 4 night stay here.  The cottage was so clean, the food great (especially the desserts) and enjoyed the sunset cruise!  We really appreciated how you emphasized guests follow covid protocols and that the staff followed protocols.  We felt safe here and impressed with how you organized the meals with the covid situation.  We actually loved eating on our deck.  Can’t wait for our next visit!”

~ Liz & Betty ~

“Just spent my third mini vacation at Cedar Grove Lodge, and enjoyed the food, the cabin, the weather, and especially hiking on the frozen lake and snowshoeing in the hills.  I felt very safe with the different covid changes, the cleanliness and the takeout meals.  Twice I was with a friend and once I came alone and the different experiences were wonderful.”

~ Ken ~

“Excellent service, staff who will make your stay a real pleasure, facilities to cater to all ages,   and food that is outstanding and desserts are to die for!  Only problem, is finding the energy to work off the calories.  My dog just loved the friendly attitude from everyone.  Roll on the time to my next visit.  You will not be disappointed by a vacation at Cedar Grove.  Only disappointment for us, was having to leave.”

~ Robin ~

“I have had the privilege of staying at Cedar Grove Lodge 4 times, once in each season and thoroughly enjoyed each time.  This Covid-19 summer was the best.  It was such a relief being around a great staff, lovely families, all through social distancing.  For the time there it felt “normal again”.  The meals are always delicious with many choices available.  Love the privacy of your own cottage with fireplace.”

~ Shirley ~

“Cedar Grove Lodge is a serene, beautiful setting, but more importantly, it is a “feeling”, where cares/worries melt away, and each family member feels free to be, free to swim, hike, fish, read, row, and free to relax,converse and make new friends – whatever age one may be!  I was fortunate to first arrive at The Lodge when I was 10 – and the beginning of my annual “waterskiing career” took off!  Now, as an older parent, I return with my teen daughters, and they enjoy every drop of fun/independence/safety that Cedar Grove reveals for them.  The Owners provide exceptional customer service, the cabins are comfy, and the various activities/amenities keep everyone happy – what more can we ask of a favorite Summer vacation spot??!!!   I highly recommend Cedar Grove to all families!

~ Victoria ~

“Your family truly provides a tremendous service to the families blessed to go to Cedar Grove.  We are absolutely 100% grateful and consider your lodge/business a loving service.  You have no idea the number of families and kids that you have changed their lives.  Thanks again for providing 100% Cedar Grove family time!”

” Thanks again for a wonderful experience at your resort. My wife and I travel extensively and we never submit reviews.  This time was different and we submitted a review.  We have stayed at many all inclusives and bed and breakfasts in our many years of travel.  We were absolutely impressed with the lodge, our cabin, the staff and the guests who stayed there.  As guests from the USA, we were made to feel very welcome by staff and guests alike.  We discovered that many of the guests are frequent stayers and they come back every year.  While we don’t usually return to the same place twice as we like to experience new things, our experience at Cedar Grove makes us want to return.  While almost 6 hours away, it is well worth the trip.  Thanks to all who made our visit so great. “

~ Larry, Carl & Georgie the dog ~

“Spent two peaceful nights at Cedar Grove in June and was amazed how much of its charm the lodge has retained since the last time I was there as a child in 1968. Swam in the lake. Took out the canoe. Sat on the dock. Ate wonderful meals. All in a peaceful setting that brought back memories of the childhood summers spent here with my family. To top it off, our waitress from those days long ago, Bonnie, still worked in the restaurant!! How about that for continuity. My only regret is that I live too far away to make this a regular thing. But, hopefully, I’ll be back again one day and it won’t take me 49 years.”
