When I was planning my trip to Muskoka, I knew I wanted to experience everything Muskoka has to offer. So, when I was looking for a place to stay, I was looking at all platforms, Airbnb, VRBO, Ontario Cottage Rentals. From the start I was leaning towards choosing Ontario Cottage Rentals because it was a smaller, local company that seems to honestly want to make my experience as safe as possible. Luckily, I found a great place, Deer Bluff, on Ontario Cottage Rentals.
I chose Deer Bluff because it was in a really great location. It’s right next to Deerhurst Resort so my husband and I can visit one of Ontario’s nicest resorts. Also, my husband and I are really into golfing, so we got to play at Deerhurst and Grandview golf clubs, some of the nicest courses in Ontario (I’d say).
Honestly Deer Bluff was such a comfortable place to live, the place is newly updated and modern. It had all the conveniences of our house in Toronto, it just felt fresh, clean, air conditioned (which came in handy due to the heat Huntsville had during our visit).
Another thing we did was visit Algonquin Park, which is about a 20-40min drive away, depending on the trails you want to walk off Hwy 60. Algonquin is beautiful! It was our first time visiting and we did just a couple of the trails off the Hwy 60 corridor. But the best thing of all was being able to come home at the end of a hot and sweaty day of doing the trails and hopping in the lake with the semiprivate beach.
Overall, Deer Bluff was an incredible spot to visit to fully experience Muskoka.
