Logging Chain Lodge Cottages - A Summer Visit
We love Summer in Muskoka! There's so much for you to do!
With 7 + acres of property overlooking Dwight Bay, there's plenty of room to roam. A large grass play area, playground, basketball hoop, two horseshoe pits and volleyball/badminton net are all available and free for your use. Play soccer, fly a kite or just run around - knock yourself out!
Or, if a slower pace is what you're looking for, relax at your own rental cottage in a Muskoka chair or at your picnic table and read a book while your children are playing in the playground or challenging their new friends to a game of volleyball. Head down to the sand beach for a swim in the warm, clean water of Lake of Bays.
Go for a stroll to Henrietta's Pine Bakery and grab some freshly baked bread or sticky buns, or to Erika's Bakery & Coffee Shop for your morning coffee. The Dwight Market & Pharmacy Store is within easy walking distance - pick up your morning paper or visit the butcher's counter and choose from their amazing selection of meat and cheese. Barbeque your dinner at your cottage!

SWIMMING AT DWIGHT BEACH
Your cottage overlooks this beautiful, all sand beach. The clean, warm water of Lake of Bays beckons a long swim or an afternoon of lazing by the shore listening to the waves.
In the evening, listen for the call of the Loons in Dwight Bay - a haunting, beautiful song that is truly Muskoka.
DO YOU LOVE TO FISH?
Lake of Bays is a very healthy environment for fish habitats. Dwight Bay has two rivers that run into it, providing a natural deep route where the fish, particularly trout, love to swim in the summer. With a depth of approximately 30 metres (90 feet) at the centre, our bay boasts pike, bass, and trout, to name a few types of fish.
The Town Dock, located at the beach, is a great spot for the seasoned as well as beginner fisherman (or woman). Or, take a quick walk down to the "fishing bridge" and cast a line.
A free boat launch is available beside the Town Dock. You can put in/take out your boat when you want to spend the day on the water, or moor it at Lake of Bays Marina, a full-service marina located in an adjacent bay - only a 5 minute drive away. On-site overnight docking is not available at Dwight Beach; however, an anchoring area is available.
CANOES & KAYAKS are available for your use - free!
We're happy to help you learn how to canoe or kayak if you've never tried before.
You will be supplied with a vessel, safety kit, paddle, and life jacket - we have all the equipment you'll need for a great paddle on the lake!
Feel energetic? Paddle to Marsh's Falls, around 1 hour each way - along the way you may see painted turtles, deer, herons and many other birds. But watch out for the Beaver! They like to surprise the unsuspecting paddler by quietly swimming up beside the boat and slapping their tales to scare you! Silly animals...
So beautiful, so natural, still so wild. A truly magical place with plenty of hiking/walking trails, a Visitor Centre, an interactive Logging Museum Trail, and free Summer Visitor Program.
Your Lake of Bays cottage rental is located near Algonquin Provincial Park, only a 15 minute drive from the West Gate of Algonquin Park, your starting point to get back to nature. A vehicle permit is all that you need to begin your adventure.
In August, the "Wolf Howl" is a never forgotten experience where a Park Naturalist will lead your group to the closest wolf pack and attempt to interact with the pack through communicating through howls. Awesome!
Summer in Muskoka also means having the chance to get up close and personal with wildlife. Moose and deer in particular are roaming freely and you may have many photo opportunities by simply driving a few minutes down the road, or sometimes just looking out your cottage window!
Watch for wild turkeys, raccoons, porcupines, fox, eagles, and our crazy hummingbirds!
