    Recharge in Windermere

    Windermere is situated in the warm and welcoming heart of Muskoka, a picture-perfect district in Ontario. Set beside the lake amid sprawling forests and unspoiled landscapes, it's a haven for rest and recreation in equal measure. From tranquil woodland walks and calming cruises on the lake, to fishing, cross-country skiing and dogsledding, the area offers year-round activities for everyone. After an outdoorsy day, Windermere vacation rentals, which range from cottages to lavish lakeside digs, offer creature comforts aplenty.

    Land and water fun in Windermere

    There's plenty to do in Muskoka's lush surroundings throughout the year. By opting for a Windermere vacation rental, you'll be moments from the water's edge, allowing you to fill your days with boat cruises, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and even water skiing. On dry land, summer and fall offer an abundance of hiking and horseback riding opportunities, while winter's snow-powdered landscape lends itself to cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, ice fishing and dog sledding – and, if that wasn't enough, there's also a selection of ice skating trails too.

    Windermere's Victorian gem

    Windermere Marina is the epicenter of the community's water recreation. Situated on Lake Rosseau, it's the go-to for boat rentals and water taxis to surrounding islands, and features a gift shop and restaurant. For golfers, it doesn't get much better than the Windermere Golf and Country Club. Bordered by granite outcroppings and white pine trees, the 18-hole championship course should appeal to inexperienced and seasoned players alike. The community's historic jewel is Windermere House, a stately white Victorian pile nestled in mature lakeside grounds. Originally built as a boarding house, it now serves as a hotel and popular wedding venue.

    Scenic seasons in Windermere

    Whenever you're booking your Windermere vacation rental, there are activities for every season. If you're here for snow-based fun, then Muskoka's bone-chillingly cold winters ensure there's plenty of snow on the ground. If you're here for the scenery, the region is probably most attractive during the fall, when its trees take on fiery bronze hues. Summer is often the most popular time for outdoorsy folk to visit, however - with average high temperatures reaching a very warm 77 in July.

    Be inspired by Windermere's breathtaking beauty

    With its glinting lakes, rock-studded shores and sprawling undisturbed forests, Muskoka provides Windermere with a spectacular backyard – and it's little surprise that artists, photographers, nature lovers and birdwatchers all come to be inspired. Large swathes of its unspoiled landscape are contained within the region's 11 provincial parks, as well as its prized natural attraction - Georgian Bay Island National Park. Alongside the endless activities they offer, they provide a habitat for a menagerie of local creatures, from deer and moose to a variety of Canadian birds.
