Adventures to be had, memories to be made...we are committed to exploring and experiencing all that Northern Ontario has to offer us. Our plan is to immerse ourselves in the rugged beauty and vast vistas one step at time.
Deerhurst Resort holds a special place in my heart. We have been coming here as a family for the past 32 years. Between us we own a number of timeshare weeks in August. It is by far and away my children's favourite vacation spot each year. What makes it so special?
First of all, Peninsula Lake is beautiful. Sandy in spots, deep enough, lots of water sports, pretty sunsets and sunrises...everything you could ask for in a Muskoka Lake.
Secondly, the children's grandparents, friends, aunt and cousins always show up. We have mattresses on the floor and the suite is rarely quiet. It is a party. Papa takes them fishing a few mornings during the week. Aunt Wendy takes them out for ice cream. They golf with their friend and cousin. The water is always beckoning, whether the indoor pool, one of the many outdoor pools, or the lake at one of the docks or the beach. There is always something going on.
Thirdly, the place is designed for relaxation. There is fishing off the dock. There is lounging on the beach. There are barbecues by the lake. There are novels to be read in lounge chairs. There is golf. There is boating. There are restaurants on the water. There are escape rooms. The resort highlights northern art on its walls.
We are already looking forward to next year!
