Ask anyone who has had the pleasure of visiting Idlywilde and they will tell you it truly offers the best of both worlds: the privacy, serenity and calmness of a small lake while still being in the heart of Muskoka. How beautiful to have the option to enjoy a perfectly still lake or hear the laughter of children (and some fearless adults) as they tube behind a boat. Many a cottager has had the opportunity to practice their swimming skills while attempting a cross lake swim on this intimate lake. During the winter months, snowshoe through the 32 acres of forest or cross-country ski along the Red Leaves nature reserve.
