Find an exceptional array of accommodations to suit your vacation style.
The resort experience in Ontario is every bit as unique as the individual resorts are, with over 100 establishments located throughout this amazing province. While each resort has its own personality, warm hospitality, comfortable accommodations and a range of recreational opportunities on offer, all our lakeside/countryside resorts are located in stunning environments and provide the ultimate in family and romantic retreats.
Our rich resorting legacy began here in Ontario well over a century ago, with guests arriving by rail, canoe and steam boat to this area. The Explorers’ Edge region is home to a very special collection of contemporary and traditional resorts, lodges, cottages and inns, ranging from authentic log cabins to full-service resorts catering to families, couples and groups. The landscape of this ruggedly-beautiful area, bordered by Algonquin Park to the east, Parry Sound to the west, and encompassing the iconic cottage country of Muskoka, is the perfect backdrop to this rich blend of resort destinations, which are often nestled at the end of a picturesque road or trail.
Explorers seeking trysts with adventure, excitement and romance can enjoy the best of what this region offers, not only in summer but year-round as well. Guests can set their own pace and choose their own style of resorting. They can experience fully-programmed recreational and experiential programs, such as Moose safaris, touring the great outdoors, cycling and hiking the area’s trails, or traversing our waterways whether gliding by canoe or kayak through sparkling blue waters.
For those seeking a more relaxed pace, there is no more rewarding experience than being pampered and soaked in luxuriating calm in these idyllic locations. And there is quite nothing like awakening to the haunting calls of the loon, or watching the mist evaporate in the morning to reveal spectacular vistas of awe-inspiring scenery.
Resorts are ideal for families, for couples, for groups of guys and girls seeking quality time out, and fantastic spots to host a wedding or reunion. Planning your next getaway or first escape to an Ontario Resort has never been easier. Resorts of Ontario represents an array of resorts, lodges, cottages and inns throughout Ontario, with a significant concentration found in the Explorer’s Edge region.
