If you are in the market for a cottage in Muskoka, Morrison Lake is always a great choice. Conveniently located 23 kilometres southwest of the town of Gravenhurst, Morrison Lake is slightly rounded in shape, providing most cottages with excellent views, and it has a more sandy shoreline than most lakes in the area. The lake is fed by a river flowing from Muldrew Lake, and at the south end, a stream flows into the Severn River; over 5% of the shoreline is environmentally protected land. The lake offers a fantastic cottage experience with nearby access to a huge selection of amenities.
If you are looking for an out-of-the-way, relaxing cottage experience in Muskoka, this is for you. Morrison Lake offers absolutely gorgeous sunset views from almost any part of the lake, and its large size means there is plenty of room to tour around in your boat, kayak or canoe. You don’t want to miss the view you get from cruising around Mile Island, the largest of the many islands dotted throughout the lake. So head on down to North Morrison Lake Road, where you’ll find a public boat launch and the perfect start to your Morrison Lake adventure.
Anglers will appreciate the weedy area behind Mile Island, which is why it is a favourite fishing site. So after launching your boat from the boat launch on North Morrison Lake Road, why not drop your line in the water and try your hand at fishing? Common fish species inhabiting the lake include smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, muskellunge and northern pike. You may, however, even see brown bullhead, golden shiner, white sucker or yellow perch on your line.
Enjoy the breathtaking view from your dock while siping cocktails or a late-night dip. Relax, rejuvenate and de-stress. Now you’re in the “cottage zone”. Just imagine the sandy shore, perfect for all ages to enjoy; swimming and endless hours of playing in the sand. You might even find some time to explore the islands or take a leisurely bicycle ride around the lake.
After a wonderful day unwinding or out on the water, you may feel like venturing into town. Why not head over to the Muskoka Steamship and Discovery Centre in Gravenhurst, where you can check out an exhibit or take a cruise on a historic ship? Or take in a few rounds of golf at the Muskoka Bay Golf Course, rated one of the Top 10 in Canada.
So what are you waiting for? Your dream cottage is waiting for you on Morrison Lake.
