Destination guide

Huntsville _ happy days in the Ontarian countryside

Huntsville is one darn handsome place, hidden up there between the rugged, rocky ridges of the Muskoka hills, surrounded by wiggling lake waters, and scented with the pines that sway throughout its leafy streets. The summertime turns it into a magnet for outdoors enthusiasts, flocking north from Toronto to find Huntsville vacation rentals on the edge of the pioneer wilderness of the Algonquin Provincial Park. A rich tradition of visual arts and ecology bring up the cultural side of things, while the theaters and boutique shops of Main Street ooze with Ontarian country charm.

Activities

Mixing heritage and nature in Huntsville

Huntsville artfully fuses culture and adventure. Its streets are packed with creative boutiques where local artisans work portraiture and jewelry. There are open-air theater productions in the summer, and ad hoc slam poetry sessions in the cafes. Between all that, you can break out into the Ontarian wilds with the walking boots on, ready to hit the trails, or primed for guided ecology tours through the region's acclaimed provincial parks. Rafting, canoeing, skiing, and cross-country skiing add a more adrenaline-fueled edge to proceedings.

Weather

High time for adventure in Huntsville

Huntsville vacation rentals magnetize outdoorsy types from May to August with the promise of proximity to the beautiful backcountry of Muskoka and the Algonquin Provincial Park _ think hiking, canoeing, Canadian wildlife safaris and more. Fall, in September and October, is great for seeing the forests change color, while winter sees the opening of the pistes in the Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area, and countless miles of Nordic ski runs around town _ come between November and March for those.

Natural features

Huntsville's handsome setting

Huntsville might just have one of the most handsome settings of any town in Ontario. Nestled between a series of rising hills in the middle of forest-dressed Muskoka, it's hemmed in by countless lakes. These wiggle right into the center, forming the trio of Mary Lake, Fairy Lake, and Lake Vernon along the bends of the Muskoka River. The Arrowhead Provincial Park is just to the north, beckoning with sand-sided meanders and riparian woods. The Algonquin Provincial Park is close, too _ a vast wilderness of lakes and rocky bluffs trodden by bears and moose.
