Even in the winter, Lake Muskoka does not fail to disappoint. There are nice hiking trails around Lake Hardy and a great restaurant overlooking Lake Muskoka called the Creative Plate, just outside of Gravenhurst.

We went in the winter so it was all frozen. But absolutely stunning and peaceful. Just taking a walk around the lake is good enough in the winter.

Definitely a great place to relax. Have a Cottage up here and go up every year for staying there, fishing, playing outdoor sports, BBQ'ing, motorboating, etc. Always a fun and great place to visit.

Perfect temperatures, bright sunny skies, great trails and beautiful scenery along the fantastic snowmobile trails. What a great way to wind down the season then to share a ride on the trails with family. Great times to remember in these lovely surroundings.

The lake is a great getaway with not a whole lot to do. Great if you are on a date and you like each other. The water was really clean when I went and I hope it still is.

Stayed at the nearby Residence Inn by Marriott. Lake Muskoka is absolutely gorgeous. Lovely waterfront area with several restaurants and attractions.
