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……”

Sample a Taste of Everything in Muskoka

A Blog Post and Review by Dave and Deb of

” “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 Review and Blog Post by

“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….”
