Known as the Gateway to Muskoka, the town of Gravenhurst is located on the shores of Lake Muskoka with cottage rentals lining the water’s edge.
Gravenhurst beckons swimmers, anglers and water sports enthusiasts, who take to the nearby lakes on boats, canoes, and kayaks. On land, hiking and biking are popular activities in the summer, while cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling are favourites come winter.
Home to the iconic Muskoka Wharf and with plenty of waterfront restaurants and cafés in heritage buildings, there’s no shortage of charming places to retire to after a day out on the water, trails, or golf courses. The town also hosts an array of annual events and festivals, including the Antique and Classic Boat Show.
Just a two hours’ drive north of Toronto, Gravenhurst is one of the most popular places to rent a cottage in Ontario.+ More
