…to plan your Muskoka summer getaway. The summer of 2012 marks the 125th anniversary of the Royal Mail Ship Segwun, the oldest operating steamship in North America. It’s home port is Gravenhurst, Ontario, gateway to Ontario cottage country…Muskoka. Summer in Muskoka means time relaxing and playing by or on the water. Visitors who don’t have their own boats often get “on the water” by way of one of the Muskoka Steamships, the Segwun or the Wenonah II. Check out the sailing schedule at www.realmuskoka.com or call 1-866-687-6667.
Others choose to stay closer to shore or on the dock and are quite content to indulge in an early morning coffee on the dock with a view of a serene lake such as Gull Lake, home of Tuktawayin.
This photo was taken on a June morning while I was out for a pre-breakfast paddle from Tuktawayin. This is available for all our bed and breakfast guests who are comfortable in a canoe. Ours is available for guests to use.
Landlubbers can still enjoy similar idyllic scenery from the dock at Tuktawayin or even from the vantage point of the glassed in Muskoka Room overlooking the lake.
Water babies will love an early morning dip while there is virtually no boat traffic.
As the summer solstice nears our availability calendar is filling up quickly. We still have some mid-week availability in July, one 2 night weekend in the Garden Room and one single night on July 20 in the Lakeside Room. See the calendar by clicking on the availability tab on the navigation bar at the top of a page.
We hope to see you soon.
