The Township of Lake of Bays consists of the three main communities of Baysville, Dorset, and Dwight. Situated in the northeastern corner of Muskoka, Lake of Bays encompasses 563 kms of shoreline, and is the second biggest lake in cottage country, after Lake Muskoka.
Boasting large stretches of clear, clean water, this spectacular lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, boating… or simply kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying the views. Other popular summer activities here include kayaking and canoeing, waterskiing and sailing, as well as biking, hiking, and golf on championship courses like Bigwin Island. Come winter, it’s all about things to do in the snow like ice fishing, skating, skiing, dog sledding, and enjoying some of the best snowmobiling in Ontario.
Whether you’re planning to become a cottager here or a full-time resident (and many cottagers do!), you’ll find some of the best Muskoka real estate in Lake of Bays. In fact, Lake of Bays cottages for sale include everything from quaint family cottages to larger waterfront homes with all the modern conveniences of a city home… but with much better views and, of course, that unbeatable cottage lifestyle.
Just a short drive away from the major Muskoka towns of Bracebridge and Huntsville, Lake of Bays is also home to a good many attractions. These include
the Dorset Lookout Tower and the historic SS Bigwin steamship, both wonderful for those wanting to view the region’s famous Fall colours, and the Lake of Bays Brewing Company, which offers a fun beer tour.
