Muskoka's natural beauty continues to attract visitors from around the world.
It's flourishing hospitality industry began in the late 1800's with
transportation by fleets of stream ships carrying summer visitors
and their supplies, throughout the many miles of clean, unspoiled
rivers and lakes .
Today some of these grand old Muskoka hotels still operate, and
continue to provide outstanding facilities and services. In scenes
reminiscent of the 1900's, the same ships can still be seen today,
steaming throughout the Muskoka Lakes.
Muskoka today, more than ever, is very much in demand as a destination
for wedding receptions and conference.
Not only is it a beautiful choice, but on a practical level, it's
a good choice as well.
Muskoka is both a conference and wedding destination. and as such
is able to attract and sustain an unusually high caliber of local
suppliers. There are ; nationally recognized photographers, award
winning chefs, extremely talented floral designers, world class
musicians, and entertainers, bridal consultants, party supply outlets,
videographers, top disk jockeys, decorators, consultants, ministers,
limousine services, bus transportation services... in short, everything
Summer is Muskoka's busiest season. If you are planning a reception
between June and September, try to make arrangements well in advance.
Vendors have more time, and can often provide extra care and attention
to your needs. Summer will always be the most popular for weddings
at the cottage and the local community center. There are excellent
caterers available as well as party supply outlets and tent rental
Consider also the non-summer seasons of Muskoka. It can be more
relaxed, and be a lovely and special getaway for you and your guests.
A nice treat when everyone is just a little less busy.
Muskoka in the fall is breath-taking with its glorious fall colors,
perfect for decorating your wedding ceremony or reception facilities.
In winter, it's cozy winter retreats, blanketed in fresh snow, with
blazing fireplaces, make your stay more intimate, especially after
a full day of outdoor ice hockey, broomball tournaments or snow
shoeing. Many resorts offer full outdoor winter activities with
everything you need including; ice rinks, hockey/broomball sticks,
skis, and can arrange for snowmobiles, horse-drawn sleigh rides...
even dog sleds!
Our warmer spring “maple syrup” season can provide a lovely contrast
of warmer sunny days and cold clear nights. How about an old fashioned
wagon ride and bonfire sing-a-long for your guests on first night
of their arrival?
These "off seasons" can offer you and your guests a slightly
more personal and relaxed setting, adding warmth to your relationships.
