The Overview

A reasonable day ahead. A better finish than start to this week. And it is the first long weekend of the season. Sure you will want to come to your cottage. Living here is wonderful but we appreciate that the reason you bought a cottage was to live in it. Safety is the key. Lineups at food stores continue. Add in the liquor store and now the hardware stores. Canadians are great at lining up – we always have been. So this is something we achieve nicely. Keep the shorts ready – their days are coming fast!

The Radar Never Lies!

Our opening temperature starts at -1C(FL -5C) in sunshine. It will warm to 5C (FL 1C) in the afternoon and then cool to -2C (FL -4C) overnight. Keep your plants in a warm spot.
Winds – remain from the NW pushing this cold front well south today. The southerlies will start later tomorrow marking the return of Spring to PSM.

A Special Day In A Wonderful Setting

Weddings are a special day for many people involved. Here at Muskoka Highlands, we reduce that stress with attention to every detail.
But our distinguishing feature is our setting – both inside and out. The clubhouse is designed to hold about 85 guests and the picture shows how this can happen. For larger parties, we engage a tent professional to create a unique setting outside.

Do you want to feel the warmth of a timber-frame clubhouse? Drop us an inquiry – weddings@muskokahighlands.com. We will respond and we will work with you to make your day special.
