Often referred to as the Gateway to Muskoka – it’s the first town you’ll come across when entering the region – Gravenhurst Ontario is the quintessential cottage country town. Reminders of its rich history are everywhere, from the majestic Gravenhurst Opera House, still busy staging great theatre and entertainment (check out the fantastic Sawdust City Music Festival), and the Muskoka Wharf, homeport of the steamship RMS Segwun. The town’s waterfront is also a gathering place for smaller historic vessels during the Antique and Classic Boat Show, as well as the site of Muskoka’s largest farmer’s market.
As well as being a great place for food fans thanks to its being home to some of the top Muskoka restaurants, as well as boasting great shopping, Gravenhurst is also popular for those seeking luxury Muskoka real estate thanks to its location at the southern end of Lake Muskoka. And for vacationers, the area also offers a variety of great luxury hotels, resorts and cottages.
