Bundled in the woodsy embrace of the Muskoka region's southern reaches, The Cottages at Port Stanton skitter along the edge of the illustrious Sparrow Lake. A gorgeous body of water with an ample silhouette, you'll find no fleeting weekends passing you by with a full week's stay in your own private cottage.
Gather your friends or loved ones together in your spacious, completely furnished, three-bedroom abode for a raucous game night by the warm, crackling flames of your fireplace. With two satellite televisions, there won't be any scuffles about what kind of TV show or movie you'll be lounging late into the night watching. As the beams of morning light float in over the lake, build a breakfast of champions with as many fixings as you can muster in your full kitchen, taking in the calm of knowing you still have a whole week of relaxation ahead of you.
Your private cottage hideaway may be your exclusive kingdom for the week, but it never hurts to have an extra boost of rejuvenation as the spa services at Bayview Wildwood Resort are all available to you at an extra cost. Let their trained professionals work away your stress with a tensionless massage, or pamper your cuticles with a delicate manicure. Show the cold who reigns supreme with an elegant glide over the on-site skating rink. Find time to splash around in the indoor pool, or expel any restless energy with a luxuriating soak in the hot tub. Hibernation is not the only option in the chill of the winter months if outdoor endeavours don't illuminate your interests, there are squash courts and a well-equipped fitness room to keep the season's doldrums at bay.
Sparrow Lake is surrounded by a far-reaching twisted network of trails that duck and weave their way through the trees, perfect for floating atop the crisp, freshly fallen snow on a pair of cross-country skis or trundling along the uncovered earthy track in a springy pair of hiking boots. The Bayview Resort offers a varied menu of excursions and rentals that span all seasons. Barrel through the trees on an exhilarating snowmobile safari, leaving a flurry of flurries in your wake, or test your velocity with a rental toboggan for an endless afternoon of outdoor frivolity.
