PRWEB) August 24, 2006 -- It is probably safe to say that most people living in Ontario have heard of Muskoka, Ontario, and a good number of their neighbors to the south, living in the Border States, know of Muskoka as well. The Muskoka region of southern Ontario Canada is famous. This is seen as thousands of people flee the GTA and flock there every weekend where many have family cottage connections that stretch back for generations. However, the popularity of Muskoka, Ontario, reaches far beyond those who call Canada home, as one can witness the influx of Hollywood celebrities and the like cruise its lakes and drive up the real estate prices.
Muskoka is well known for beautiful lakes, majestic outcroppings of granite, towering trees, and wildlife. It is also known for large luxury resort properties with “high end prices.” Some are majestic and stately beauties, dating back over 100 years and some are new, ultra modern (and ultra expensive) with professional rated golf courses, designed and developed for people who require the best.
The increasing popularity for Muskoka has made this town become very crowded and extremely expensive. The quaint little towns of Rosseau and Port Carling have regular weekend traffic jams. The Moon River gets so congested with boats the police are called to direct traffic. Muskoka, Ontario, Canada is a great place to see and be seen, but hardly the ideal place to relax, unwind, and enjoy nature.
Thankfully, there is an alternative that Northridge Inn and Resort located in the “Unknown Muskoka” offers. This little-known area has come to be called “Muskoka North” and has all that the old Muskoka has to offer for a whole lot less. Less traffic, less people, less cost. Muskoka North is located approximately two and a half hours north of Metropolitan Toronto and only a few miles farther up Highway 11 from Huntsville. Muskoka North is, as they say, “worth the drive.”
Muskoka’s Northridge Inn and Resort was voted one of the “Top Ten Inn/Resort Destinations in Ontario” according to Toronto Life Magazine. This North Muskoka resort has set itself apart. Northridge Inn has everything the resorts of old Muskoka have except the high prices and the crowds of people. Northridge Inn & Resort (http://www.northridgeinn.com) is a full-service resort located just outside the town of Sundridge in the heart of Almaguin Highlands, on the ruggedly beautiful south shore of Lake Bernard. It offers its guests luxurious accommodations in a setting reminiscent of a Group of Seven landscape -- sweeping lake views, hundreds of feet of natural sand beach, pool, Jacuzzis, hot tub, and gourmet dining.
Resplendent with natural beauty, Muskoka North is the ideal relaxing Ontario vacation spot. A natural work of art, Muskoka North is chocked full of beautiful clean lakes, wilderness, and forest trails. It hosts an abundance of opportunities for the sportsman. There is so much to do -- fishing, boating, hiking, hunting, ATV-ing, snowmobiling, dogsledding, golfing, and the list goes on. In addition, there are pretty little towns scattered throughout the area that hold art and shopping treasures. Furthermore, a wide variety of accommodations can be found in charming country inns, modest cottage resorts, campgrounds, and even full-service luxurious resorts, without the “high end” price.
It’s no wonder that Northridge Inn and Resort was voted one of the “Top Ten Inn/Resort Destinations in Ontario.” With Muskoka North still being unknown to many tourists, this Ontario vacation spot offers an excellent opportunity for those looking for luxurious accommodations with a more laid back atmosphere at an affordable price.
