LUXURY. WORK. MUSKOKA - Part 3: Explore the Local Area

By Michelle Seedhouse, April, 2018



During summer in Muskoka, you will want to experience everything the area has to offer when you’re not at work. Get your exercise endorphins flowing in Minett with a Tri Lakes Training boot camp, a round of golf at The Rock or find your Om in the boathouse with PYC Muskoka yoga.

A short drive away from the resort, the “hub of the lakes” Port Carling is a popular tourist destination lined with unique shops and boutiques. You might want to check out Turtle Jack’s in Port Carling while you sit by Lake Muskoka enjoying delicious food (their brownies are to die for!) or even take up rowing at Hatchets.

The town of Bala is another popular location nearby with the historic Kee to Bala, a great place to attend concerts while standing on the outdoor patio overlooking Lake Muskoka. Upcoming 2018 acts include The Trews, July Talk, The Sheepdogs and Sam Robert’s Band. If you still need more adventure, spend your days off hiking Hardy Lake Trail, Torrance Barrens and Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh.

“It will be a summer you will never forget! You can go for pre & post work lake swims, work outside and enjoy daily Rosseau views, and most importantly meet friends and guests from around the world!  Two of my favourite things to do in Muskoka is catching a summer concert at The Kee to Bala or hiking at the cranberry marsh. I also plan on taking up sailing in Bracebridge this summer and spending a lot of time on the water.”
