With the summer rush gone, now is the perfect time to experience a different side of Muskoka. Just minutes from the charming town of Huntsville and famed Algonquin Provincial Park, Deerhurst Resort makes the perfect home base for some of the province’s best Fall colour routes, locally-inspired harvest flavours, energizing outdoor activities and a series of exciting special events.

As the predominant reds and oranges blanket the lakeside landscape, there’s lots of adventures to enjoy – from boat tours and beach strolling to hiking and horseback riding.  Or take a scenic drive to nearby Algonquin Park, relax at the Shizen Spa, and light up your night at the resort’s fun-filled live show, Decades.  Best of all, from now through the end of October, midweek guests can save 25% off regular room rates.  Read more and book your trip here.
