Cottaging on Legendary Lake of Bays

Blog by Susan Brown | June 13th, 2017

Deep, clear, surprising – Lake of Bays is the second largest lake in Muskoka with nearly 170 km of shoreline. Just two hours north of Toronto and three and a half hours west of Ottawa, Lake of Bays has been loved by generations of cottagers for its gorgeous granite shorelines, warm summer waters, and unbeatable sunsets.

The lake that First Nations called the “lake of forks” is anchored by the inviting villages of Dwight, South Portage, Baysville and Dorset. The western gate of Algonquin Park is a short drive away, and all the attractions of Muskoka (rated a top summer destination by National Geographic Traveller) are within easy day-trip distance. The water is clear, the fishing is good, and the properties are diverse. If you’re looking for a piece of shoreline to call your own, Lake of Bays has anything you could wish for, no matter what your cottage style.

Exciting opportunities are available to you right now, including:
