BEAR-ROCK-INN is located just 5 minutes from Severn Falls, 90 minutes North of Toronto, 40 minutes north of Barrie & 30 minutes west of Orillia on the best kept secret in Muskoka,...... The "Severn River" on the fringe of Muskoka is between the Famous Big Chute & Swift Rapids. The cottage is circa. 1950's and recently renovated complete from top to bottom and we've tried to keep it as original as possible. All new appliances,...... fridge, stove, microwave & dishwasher. Unwind in the new soaker tub! The cottage sleeps 7 and has 2 bedrooms and a loft. We have a flat screen TV, DVD & VCR player, and Netflix. There is also WiFi available. We have some movies there and a few books to read! With so much to do why stay inside and miss the sound of the loons??? The screened in porch is what really makes the place!!! We haven't had one person stay or visit that doesn't fall in love with the front porch! The views from the bug free environment are awesome and we guarantee you will relax! Snuggle up to a good book and chill out! Start your day with a coffee and enjoy the picturesque sun rises from the large screened in porch, or bring your coffee to the dock and grab a Muskoka Chair right on the water. The swimming is great and refreshing off the dock! Pickerel, Bass, Pike, Perch, Cat Fish and tons of hungry sun fish are just waiting for your worms! We supply a canoe and a paddle boat at your request! We provide 1 tank of propane per week.
The world Famous "Waubic" Restaurant is just across the river! This restaurant is by boat access only which is not the only reason it's famous, the hospitality and family that run it always make you welcome! Severn Falls is a 5 minute drive by car or can be accessed by boat as well! There is an excellent restaurant there, a marina and a general store that also serves as a Liquor / Beer store and they sell Pizza too!

Casino Rama is a 45minute drive! Wasaga beach is about a 40 minute drive and always a favorite for a day trip! The elvale Zoo is great for the kids! We recommend a simple walk out back of the cottage, there are several beaver ponds, lots of birds and wildlife and you get your exercise too! The Midland Drive-inn is a great night out and a short drive! There are plenty of world class golf courses & driving ranges within 30minutes of the cottage and there are a few mini putts and a par 3 course! If you have more people in your group or have another family or relatives that would like to come up we have some friends that are renting their cottages on the river as well so let us know maybe we can help, but let us know soon! We also have a friend with a bed and breakfast in the area if you have a short stay guest!
The cottage is open concept with a loft. The whole interior has been renovated and as we said we tried to keep it as original as possible! The master bedroom c/w a queen size bed, 2nd bedroom w/ single over double bunk & the loft w/ 2 singles. Note: all beds are new and don't sag in the middle! You can sleep 7 comfortably! You can take naps on the day bed in the front porch or relax in the rocking chairs or play a good game of checkers at the picnic table, all in the bug free screened in porch! The kitchen is perfect, with all new appliances, and best of all no dishes, just load up the dish washer and head down to the dock and relax! The bathroom has been fully re-done and a new soaker tub installed!
The cottage is perched about 10 feet above and right on the water! There is plenty of parking space for at least 3 vehicles. There is a granite patio just off the side deck with a small fire pit! Just a few steps down from the patio and you are on the dock, swimming or fishing! The sunrises are spectacular from the screened in porch or down at the dock! The cottage is surrouned by tall white "Whispering" Pines. The best part is that the neighbouring cottages are out of view! Do you have your own boat?
