Lake Vernon is a large north Muskoka lake, with plenty of shores and islands to explore, and plenty of wide-open water for all the water sports imaginable. Nearby Huntsville has plenty of action, stores, restaurants, pubs, and people, when a change of pace is wanted. Algonquin Park is a short drive away, and there are wilderness outfitters with canoe rentals, as well as local marinas for large boat rentals. You will want to extend your stay for several more weeks!
Water shoes are recommended at the 110 foot shoreline with mushy gradual entry. A boat up to 21 foot can be tied up at the forty-four foot dock. There is also a 16x16 dock end piece with ladder. The dock is refreshingly shady in the morning and is basked in sunshine the rest of the day.
The ultimate ending to a fantastic day at the cottage is at the fire pit where there is seating for twelve; or relax under the star-filled sky and benefit from the soothing relaxation of the eight-person hot tub.
Blue Jay Away is a custom-built dream cottage that has been lovingly designed to create a wonderful holiday experience for the entire family.
