Our opening temperature starts at 7C(FL 6C) in sunshine. It will warm to 18C (FL 17C) in the afternoon and then cool to 6C (FL 4C) overnight. The warm is here – not quite growing weather yet. Another 10 degrees and watch out!! Winds – are somewhat inclined to be out of the NW – albeit lightly. They will keep the skies clear through til Sunday nite when it will rain. And then clear Monday morning. Perfect – thank you! 200516wi

Allergy Index

The Allergy Index is HIGH moving to VERY HIGH over the weekend. The warmer temps along with the rain will bring a green flush to the region. It is interesting to watch the progression of the plants from Low to High and back to Low as they pass through the budding stage. 200516ai

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.
