Situated on the boundary between Muskoka and Haliburton, Dorset is a quaint central Ontario community on the shores of Lake of Bays. Located on the Canadian shield, Dorset cottage rentals are scattered among lakes and mixed oak, birch, pine and spruce forests.
Dorset abounds with outdoor sporting recreations. Hiking, cycling, mountain biking, and horseback riding are popular land activities in the summer while anglers and water sport enthusiasts take to the waterways on boats, canoes, and kayaks. Come winter, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and dog sledding are favourites and the nearby Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area provides opportunities for downhill skiing and snowboarding. The historical town is also home to Robinson’s General Store, which was voted Canada’s best country store and has been owned and operated by the same family since 1921!
Just under three hours northeast of Toronto and located in proximity to both Muskoka and the Haliburton Highlands, Dorset is a popular place to rent a cottage in Ontario.+ More
