Cedar Grove Lodge is a cottage resort located on beautiful Peninsula lake in picturesque Muskoka, Ontario. Located a short drive between Huntsville and the world famous Algonquin Park, the lodge offers 19 individual lakeside cottages stretched along 1600 feet of natural shoreline.


We are very different from a hotel or large resort. We are a casual and relaxed lodge and perfect for those who are looking for something a little different and even a bit 'quirky'. 

This Ontario resort has been in operation by the Fleming family for over 81 years. Our rich tradition of offering unique log cabins with wood burning stone fireplaces with three delicious meals per day has kept generations of Muskoka vacation travellers coming back year after year.

The lodge and cottage rentals are open year round for your unique Muskoka getaway vacation.

Winter in Muskoka brings a plethora of activity choices including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, skating on our lake rink, or crisp morning walks. Having said that, the most popular activity in winter is sitting by a roaring fire in your own lakeside cabin, looking out over Peninsula lake and enjoying a scenic Ontario winter.

Spring is a great time to visit Muskoka. Once the snow of winter has melted away, attention turns to the wonders of spring. Animals are always most active in May and June. Birdwatchers love this time of year, there is less foliage on the trees and the birds are busy building nests and finding mates. We are always on the look out for this years new loon chicks. Visits to Algonquin Park can be most rewarding in May, as this is a great time of year to spot moose along the highway. Here at the lodge, you can enjoy canoeing, hiking, relaxing on the dock, reading by the fire and more. May and early June bring our lowest rates of the year, and its a good time to visit Muskoka before the busy summer tourist season starts.

In summer, guests at the lodge can choose from a myriad activity options, or simply relax and unwind in a Muskoka chair on the dock. We offer free use of all of the non-motorized boats, which include canoes, kayaks, pedal boats, windsurfers, and row boats. Tours on our pontoon boat and water-skiing are also free of charge. Please visit the summer page of this website for more summer activity information.
 

Fall brings cool nights and spectacular Muskoka colours. Crisp morning walks down our country road are popular, as well as catching up with a good book on the dock in the warm afternoon sun on Peninsula Lake. Many guests will choose to take a packed lunch and head out to Algonquin Park to try of their many hiking trails. A pre-dinner canoe ride can be the perfect way to end another glorious day at your lakeside log cabin resort.
 
Spring is a great time of year to enjoy birdwatching. On May 10th, 2009, 2 Guests staying at Cedar Grove Lodge saw 15 different species of birds.

They were: American Goldfinch, Chickadee, Yellow Breasted Sapsucker, Downy Woodpecker, Red Breasted Nuthatch, Yellow Rumped/Myrtle Warbler, Black and White Warbler, Black Throated Green Warbler, Eastern Phoebe, Common Loon, Red Winged Blackbird, Cat Bird, Merlin, Mallard Duck, Bufflehead Duck, Ruddy Duck, Greater Scaup.

A stay at the lodge includes 3 meals per day. From dinner on your check in day - to breakfast or lunch on departure day, all the meals during your Muskoka vacation will be provided as part of your vacation with us. No need to think about cooking or cleaning, all of our rates include meals and housekeeping service.

Cedar Grove is proud to be an environmentally friendly Ontario cottage rental resort.

We are proud supporters of the Muskoka Wildlife Center. For 2 years in a row we have been "Silver" sponsors of Yeti the Canada Lynx and Rufus the Bobcat.  Ontario resorts have a rich tradition of giving back to the community and we feel environmental causes are a great way for us to do that.

Cedar Grove is a member of Savour Muskoka which is a local organization that promotes the use of local farmers and culinary artisans. We use Maple View Farms maple syrup, Windmill Bakery, Yummies in a Jar, Grenville Farms, Edible Fungi, Brookland Farms and others. Where possible we source local ingredients and products to help local small businesses and as part of our eco program. In the summer of 2010 we were able to source local potatoes, green and yellow beans, basil, beets, shitaake mushrooms, many kinds of Muskoka lettuce, pale ale from Lake of Bays, bit of local raspberries, cherry tomatoes and more! 

Cedar Grove is the first Ontario resort to be Ocean Wise approved. Ocean Wise is a conservation program based out of the Vancouver Aquarium that helps restaurants and other food establishments to choose, where possible, the most sustainable, environmentally friendly seafood options. Thorough research is done by Ocean Wise to come up with a list of the best items that have the least impact on the local ecosystem. A few of the Ocean Wise items you might see on our menu include Nova Scotia Arctic Char and Wild Lake Erie Pickerel.

“Cedar Grove Lodge is setting an example for all resorts in the region by becoming our first Ocean Wise resort partner in Ontario. We congratulate their leadership and commitment to sourcing sustainably caught fish for their menus.”

2012 marks 100 years since Tom Thomson's first visit to Algonquin Park. To help celebrate this we are having another outdoor mural painted for us. We have chosen a Tom Thomson painting that was painted that first year, "The Canoe". Follow our facebook page for updates as this comes together. We plan to place it on the boathouse by the waters edge. In fact, "The Canoe" will hang right beside our canoe rack!
 
In 2011 Muskoka was picked as the best summer trip destination by National Geographic. They referenced our "2500 square mile natural playground including 8699 miles of shoreline and 17 historic towns and villages, and countless waterfalls and lakes bordered by the granite peaks of Algonquin Park." The prestigious magazine also stated that Muskoka offers "an unplugged pace that's a world away from Canada's largest city, Toronto." National Geographic editor-in-chief, Keith Bellows said that Muskoka was the top spot because it stays true to itself, adding "Its really got this sort of special depth - this resonance - that is immutable. We look for something that just feels like its been there for a long time and stays true to what it is."

In June 2010, Huntsville hosted the G8 summit right here on Peninsula Lake.  Leaders from around the world gathered for meetings at the nearby Deerhurst Resort. This afforded us a great opportunity to showcase our great Muskoka region to travelers from all around the globe. Our forests, lakes, rivers, heritage and natural beauty were on display to foreign dignitaries, world media, and many, many security forces! Many of the security forces have since returned to Huntsville to enjoy the various cottage resorts, Inns, and lodges with their families.

Cedar Grove is now on Twitter. Visit our Twitter page at www.twitter.com/cedargrove2 to view our tweets. We plan to post: last minute availability, new happenings, weather updates, fall colour updates, ice in/out updates, new dining items, interesting minutiae, wildlife sightings, special deals, and more! 


In October 2010 we tore down one of our oldest and most beloved cabins, Seagull.  It was very sad to see it go, but we are excited about the new cabin that will emerge in its place.  "Blue Heron" will be a brand new three bedroom log cabin sometime in 2011.  Follow our twitter feed for updates and photographs.

Many guests ask us what are the differences between the cabins. How do I pick a cottage? Its not a simple answer. All of our 19 lakeside cabins are different. They vary is size, age, number of bedrooms, location, view, and style. This website outlines all 19 cabins and gives a panoramic photo or photos of them. Every cabin has people who for them, its their favourite. The best way to pick one is to not over think it too much, just give one a try based on roughly what you are looking for and what's available. Once here, you can get a better feel of our resort and the different cabins that can help you select one for the next time. Some of our guests have fun trying all of them out, while others wouldn't think of coming if they didn't get "their cottage".

Please peruse this website, it contains over 125 photos of our Muskoka lodge. Feel free to send us an e-mail, call us, or drive up to Huntsville and have a look for yourself. We look forward to providing you with a unique Ontario vacation!
