Autumn’s glorious peak here in beautiful Southern Ontario is fast approaching, meaning it’s time to quit procrastinating and finally book that overdue fall getaway from Toronto to one of the premier Muskoka cottages. Muskoka District Rentals specializes in high-end lake cottages that can host large families and groups. Whether you’re in the region for the world-famous Bala Cranberry Festival , engrossing Fall Cottage Life Show , or simply visiting to witness the vibrant fall colours, we have a fleet of luxurious Muskoka cottages in the heart of the colourful Southern Ontario wilderness. Here are five of our favorite autumn Muskoka cottages for large families.
Winsome Silver Lake
On the northern edge of tranquil Silver Lake, near popular Lake Joseph, rests a secluded retreat with peaceful views, stunning 24-foot cathedral ceilings, and modern appeal. Silver Lake remains one of Muskoka’s hidden gems, mainly because of its vibrant fall foliage. Watch this short video , and you’ll quickly understand why Winsome Silver Lake tops this list. Silver Lake is a quiet, beautiful, and secluded body of water, perfect for a large family looking to escape the daily grind of the greater Toronto area. This 12-person cottage is highlighted by its breathtaking wooden cathedral ceilings, walk-out second-story porch, and large rockface in the backyard.
Many large families choose the Dream Weaver because it rests on secluded Acton Island. This cottage is also only ten kilometers from the Bala Cranberry Festival and is surrounded by some of the best fall colors in the district. This private seven-bedroom lakeside residence sits on five acres of private forestry. Family members can sleep in the lavish main cottage, updated boathouse, or guest cabin. You can chat on the lake-view deck with hot cocoa and coffee, gather around the stone woodburning fireplace, or the throw a line into Lake Muskoka from the dock for an afternoon of pike, bass, and walleye fishing.
This historic Carpe Diemvacation home is within walking distance of Bala’s Museum and only one kilometer from the annual cranberry festival. Not many of our Muskoka cottages have a genuine historical charm or are steps from some of the district’s best attractions, but Roselawn isn’t like most Southern Ontario vacation rentals. Relax in a scarlet Adirondack chair on the screened porch, marvel at the century-old interior, and walk to the Bala Cranberry Festival . This thin stretch of Lake Muskoka is gorgeous during autumn’s peak as the charming city of Bala transforms into a colorful mixture of amber, crimson, and hunter green.
There is no other way to describe this lakefront cottage – it truly is a Muskoka wonderland! This 4,200 square foot cottage sleeps 14 comfortably while also providing 4.4 acres of colourful Southern Ontario wilderness. Muskoka Wonderland rests on the shores of Mirror Lake. You’ll have access to kayaks, canoes, and SUPs for an afternoon of calming exercise and breathtaking fall foliage. The beautiful cottage features a private wraparound deck, stone fireplace, lavish chef’s kitchen, and luxurious bathrooms, but the main draw of this property is the massive boathouse overlooking tranquil Mirror Lake. The boathouse has a perfect vantage point of the colourful forest and sheening lake. You don’t want to miss autumn sunsets at the Muskoka Wonderland boathouse.
The Lakeside Charmer is yet another beautiful Action Island cottage. Not many Lake Muskoka cottages have 180 feet of shoreline. This four-bedroom haven features peaceful sunsets, onsite campfires, a scenic screened porch, and a tall stone fireplace. Drink a morning cup of coffee on the front porch, throw a line into Lake Muskoka from the dock, or paddle on the calm water in a complimentary canoe.
