Muskoka in winter is magnificent. As I write this we are enjoying glorious sunshine, great temperatures and the sky is what I like to refer to as Muskoka blue.
It is a perfect day for a ski or a snowshoe, a walk around town or even to curl up in the Muskoka room overlooking the now frozen lake and read a great book with a cup of something warm.
Many people think we roll up the sidewalks here in Muskoka when the snow hits but that just isn’t true. While it is quieter and there aren’t any crowds most businesses are open as usual. A few restaurants close for a brief holiday period while the owners take a much needed rest during the off season.
While the steamships aren’t running due to frozen waterways, the snowmobile trails will soon be open and groomed. Ice fishing huts are popping up here on Gull Lake in Gravenhurst. The cross country ski and snowshoe trails at Bracebridge Resource Management Centre are now groomed. I have been out snowshoeing in my favourite forested corners of Gravenhurst at least a dozen times already this season.
If a weekend of relaxing and reading overlooking the lake or in front of the fire is your thing give us a call @ 705-687-4354. Or maybe you are an outdoor enthusiast like me. Call us here at Robbins’ Tuktawayin B&B or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I, (Elaine) would be delighted to take you to my favourite snowshoe and cross country ski haunts where we are likely to have the whole forest to ourselves.
