Parry Sound vacation rentals

Discover Parry Sound in beautiful Ontario

Nestled along the shoreline of the northeastern arm of Ontario’s Lake Huron, Parry Sound is an idyllic getaway and a favorite for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and kick back a little. Whether you just want to top up your tan on Waubuno Beach or fancy a culture fix at the likes of the West Parry Sound District Museum, Parry Sound vacation rentals are a great way to enjoy a home-style stay. You’ll find that many homes look right out over the brilliant-blue waters of Georgian Bay.

Enjoy life on the water in Parry Sound

The allure of the great outdoors is difficult to miss in Parry Sound and one of the most delightful ways to discover the area’s diverse landscape is to enjoy a cruise on the bay. Morning cruises are typically reserved for journeys to inner highlights such as Huckleberry Island, while afternoon excursions tend to head to the outer islands, passing scenic spots such as Killbear Provincial Park and the Hole in the Wall along the way (cruise availability varies but usually run regularly over the summer). Back on dry land, enjoy an al fresco dinner along Bay Street before heading back to your Parry Sound vacation rental.

Explore arts and culture in Parry Sound

Spending time on the water goes with the territory here but arts and culture are also a firm fixture on the landscape. The Charles W. Stockey Centre for the Performing Arts plays host to several renowned events, not least Festival of the Sound in the summer and the Autumn Fiddle Fest. Get a feel for community life by looking out for the colorful Art in the Park events, held in Market Square since 1976, or the family-friendly Winter Crafts Show in the Bobby Orr Community Centre, both offering an ideal opportunity to stock up on a few reminders of your stay in Parry Sound.

Vacations in Parry Sound are a year-round affair

Parry Sound doesn’t differ all that much from the rest of Ontario when it comes to weather. Summer is perhaps one of the most popular times to stay in a Parry Sound vacation rental, as temperatures in July can easily soar to the high 70s. Spring and fall are equally enticing to those who want to take advantage of the abundance of outdoor adventure although you can expect at least some of those adventures to come with a backdrop of rain. Between December and February, the wintery conditions bring with them the chance to enjoy snowmobiling along more than 600 miles of crisp, white trails.

Find your favorite spot in Parry Sound

With more than 30,000 islands to explore in the wider Parry Sound area, kayaking along the coast to find a favorite spot shouldn’t prove too difficult. If you’d prefer someone else to do the navigating, fishing trips to the area’s numerous lakes are on the menu all year round. Green spaces are also prevalent, perhaps most notably at Round Lake Provincial Nature Reserve. Situated just 20 minutes away in Whitestone, this secluded park is light on amenities, but big on nature. Bask on the shores of Round and Wiwissasegen Lakes, enjoy a spot of wild swimming, and watch out for glimpses of the local wildlife.
