Lake Joseph: Ontario's cottage country

In the heart of wooded Muskoka, where waterways and rivers carve the landscape, Lake Joseph vacation rentals are your ticket to join the well-to-do weekend cottage-goers of Toronto. Overlooking secluded sections of coastline, peppered with private pontoons, and ringed by large gardens where lanky pine trees soar to the rooftops, these cozy boltholes and timber-faced country lodges offer a fine balance between luxury and adventure. You can kayak by day and relax in spa pools by night, go hiking by morning and hit the hot tub by afternoon.

Lazing, loafing, and floating in Lake Joseph

Lake Joseph offers an escape in the beautiful Muskoka backcountry. If you're done lazing on the deck of your private Lake Joseph vacation rentals, you can opt to hit the waters on kayaks or powered pontoons, sling the fishing rods in search of walleye and bass, or just don the walking boots for contemplative strolls through the maple groves and pines. A smattering of golf clubs, luxurious day spas, and yoga centers are at hand whenever you want to soothe the spirit. And there's even scenic motorcycling routes between here and the banks of Lake Huron.

Cranberries and Muskoka history in Lake Joseph

While the wooded banks and secluded bays of Lake Joseph are surely its main attractions, there are altogether different sorts of draws awaiting in the nearby towns. Start in Port Carling, where the al fresco art gallery that is the Port Carling Wall welcomes all who come to visit. Just to the south of that is the Johnston's Cranberry Marsh and Winery, where tasting sessions of Muskoka's tasty cranberry creations are offered on the lakeside. The Muskoka Lakes Museum is there, too. It's timber-built rooms host pioneer relics and collections of curious inventions.

Long summers on Lake Joseph

For lazing on that private deck and sunning yourself in the garden of your Lake Joseph vacation rentals, there's really no other time to visit this beautiful corner of Ontario than during the summer. That runs from May to September, and sees the cottage country around the waters come to life with crowds of Torontonians looking to escape the heat of the metropolis. For a quieter stay _ and slightly lower rates _ consider fall. The woodland looks wonderful then, as it changes from green to rust-red and gold.

Explore Muskoka lake country around Lake Joseph

Lake Joseph unfurls northwards from the town of Port Carling into the depths of the beautiful Muskoka region. A postcard-perfect image of the Ontarian backcountry, its banks are covered with pockets of maple and pine, and its inlets are spattered with boulders and the timber boat jetties of old Victorian cottages here and there. There's no designated reserve but the whole area around Lake Joseph has clung steadfastly to its rustic character. You'll find empty roads for scenic drives, hidden ponds, and woods where moose mingle with white-tailed deer.
