I recently stayed in the upper part of the Chalet at the Portage Inn near Huntsville with a group of friends. This is a self contained cottage type accommodation with 3 bedrooms, a living room area, full kitchen, dining room and 1 1/2 baths. There is a balcony, which overlooks beautiful Peninsula Lake. Our dogs were very welcome and the 3 border collies loved the large area out front where they could get some exercise as well as take long walks beside the lake.
Our hosts, Nancy and Sydney Kirkpatrick were so welcoming! They gave us a tour of the historic, recently restored Inn. While chatting with them we learned of the history of this Old Muskoka inn. The great room, with its working fireplace, bar, eating areas, antique furniture and beautiful view made us think of times gone by, a trip back into time.
We had a wonderful few days there! We took tranquil walks by the lake and also spent a morning in Huntsville which is about 10 minutes away.
Many thanks to Nancy and Sydney who went out of their way to make our visit most enjoyable. I will definitely return and highly recommend the Portage Inn for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday or getaway!More
