Welcome to Peninsula Lake, our newest lake of the week. Often called Pen Lake by the locals, Peninsula Lake has a split jurisdiction between the Town of Huntsville and the Township of Lake of Bays. It has become one of the most popular lakes in Muskoka and even hosted the G8 Summit.
Peninsula Lake was the last of four lakes to be connected by a canal. Mary, Fairy and Vernon Lakes were linked but there was a desire to see Peninsula Lake become part of the water navigation system. Once this desire became a reality it opened the area to all kinds of possibilities including tourism and other economic benefits. This is just a small part of Peninsula Lake’s rich history.
One of the biggest attractions around the lake is the world-famous Deerhurst Resort. It's a great place to go for a romantic dinner or a meal with the family. Choose from two golf courses that are open to the public. Enjoy the gorgeous views while making your way through the course. For those of you looking for year-round activities, you can hit the slopes at Hidden Valley Ski Area.
Huntsville is only 15 minutes away and offers a wide range of stores, restaurants and other services. If you want to take up the cottage life but don’t want to leave the amenities of the city behind, look no further. Peninsula Lake is the answer.
