Enjoy Muskoka even if the day turns grey!
Rain, rain go away, come again another day… or don’t.
There are few things worse than settling into a beautiful cottage with your family for a long awaited vacation and as you’re going over all the fun activities on the horizon someone chimes in, “Have you seen the forecast?”
You can plan and plan, but there is always one person that simply does not care — Mother Nature.
Despite the wet summer we are having there are two positives—one, we are still in Muskoka so when the sun peaks through you’re where you need to be and two, Jayne’s Concierge has you covered!
We have outlined some ideas for the days you can’t relax at your cottage on the dock…
Calling all Moms! Surely after two days of awful weather you’ve already played the board games, had the old deck of cards out, and yelled at the kids for using too much data. Ready to escape?
For $375+ HST per person and a minimum of six people Jayne’s Concierge Services will steal you away for a private yoga class, channel your creative energy with a private art class, and wind you down with an hour of massage therapy. Your indoor day will conclude with a 4-course private dinner complete with a cooking demonstration and guided menu.
Muskoka Lakes Museum
Any history buffs out there? Haven’t you been wondering how this gem of a vacation spot came to be? Who was at the heart of the luxurious switch into what is now being deemed as The Hamptons of Canada?
Located minutes from the heart of Port Carling the Museum has ever-changing exhibits that focus on everything from photo exhibits showcasing Muskoka’s hotspots in the past to the geographical history of the lakes themselves. Pack up the kids and head out to learn about where you’re lucky enough to vacation and support this non-profit organization within the community.
Sample away weather woes
Muskoka Cream Ale? You don’t forget that taste fast, and that’s only one of our favourites from the Muskoka Brewery. How about Lake of Bays Brewing Company hitting the top 10 largest craft breweries in Ontario? The saloon at Sawdust City Brewing Co. is also worth checking out.
Learn about the tastes of Muskoka with tours and cozy places to chat with while sampling. If you’re lucky, you might catch them on a day where there are Yoga classes, Paint Nights, and even live music!
Muskoka Discovery Centre
It’s raining anyway, so you might as well make the trip to Gravenhurst! The Muskoka Discovery Centre is an ideal option to tackle a day of bad weather if you have children.
With an education based day camp, a Kid Zone illuminated with hands-on S.T.E.M (science, technology, engineering and math) activities and exhibits focused on steamships and boats this getaway is sure to awaken younger minds.
Adults, don’t miss “Mapping in Muskoka 186 – Our recorded past charts our future” and “Muskoka Resorts Celebrating 100 years” exhibits in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday.
