Lake Simcoe Cottage Rentals
Lake Simcoe is the fourth largest lake in the province of Ontario, Canada, and it's one of the world's largest freshwater lakes to completely freeze over in the winter. It's a prime destination for Toronto residents, since it contains the closest beach area. Toronto cottagers can even commute easily to and from the office if absolutely necessary on a whim!
Around the lake's edges you'll find such prime cottage destinations as Simcoe County, Durham Region, York Region, Barrie, Orillia, Thorah Island, and the quaint residential town of Georgina -- which includes such popular communities as Keswick, Jackson's Point, and Sutton -- and more!
Rent a cottage anywhere in Lake Simcoe and you'll find a wide variety of recreational activities. In the summer, enjoy swimming, chilling on the beach, boating, hiking, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, golfing and more. In the winter, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing opportunities abound. Indeed, Lake Simcoe is also known as the "Ice Fishing Capital" of Ontario! Year round, there's great theatre to enjoy, antique and home shoes, concerts, farmers markets, concerts, festivals - like Orillia Blues Festivals, the Beaverton/Canington/Sunderland Fall Fairs, and the famous Ontario Winter Carnivals.
When renting a cottage around Lake Simcoe be sure to take advantage of all the wonderful destinations in the area. Take a road trip to Barrie or Orillia, and visit Horseshoe Valley for great skiing and fall sugar bushes, for example, and party like a rock star at Wasaga Beach.
If you're around Jackson's Point, be adventurous and take in a play at the Red Barn Theatre. I did when I stayed at the Briars Resort during a business conference, and it was a definite highlight of the trip.
Rent a cottage on Lake Simcoe and enjoy the beauty of the scenery, the water and winter recreation, the communities, bustling cities, great shops, restaurants, festivals, beaches and more!
