Summer, welcome to Muskoka!

The unofficial start of summer is here! The May long weekend (celebrating the Victoria Day holiday but also affectionately known as May two-four) has almost arrived. We’ve been enjoying summer-like temperatures and although the water is still cool it’s not too early for a dip in the lake. If that thought gets your teeth chattering, here are some other activities to try out this weekend at Colonial Bay and in Muskoka:

Get out on the water – we have a fleet of canoes, kayaks and paddle boats for our guests and the waterskiing boat is ready to go. Or maybe you’d like to try surfing?

Take in some local history – The pioneer village and train at Muskoka Heritage Place open for the season on May 19.

Go for a hike – Muskoka has an abundance of trails and world-renowned Algonquin Park is just a short drive away from Colonial Bay

Go for a spin – For two-wheel enthusiasts - the pedal-powered kind! – you can find maps of some local cycling routes and trails here. (And don’t forget about the Spin the Lakes Tour the following weekend on May 27th with 20k, 50k, 110k and 170k routes around beautiful Lake of Bays.) If driving is more your style, check out our previous post of local driving tours - beautiful any time of year!

Soak up some sun – sink into a Muskoka chair, dig your toes into the sand and enjoy the sunshine!

We still have a few waterfront cottages available for the long weekend. Check out our availability on our website. For our American friends, Memorial Day is May 28 – call us for a Canadian lakeside get-away!

Here’s to summer in Muskoka! We hope to see you soon.
