Spring / Fall

Spring and Fall are wonderful seasons to get away and enjoy the lake.  Take a motor boat, canoe or kayak and enjoy our three lakes or the Magnetewan River, which is just minutes from our docks. Cool nights, warm days, the lack of crowds and the quiet are perfect for relaxing and rejuvenating. Add some great fishing and local attractions, and you have the perfect get-away!

Fishing

Doe Lake is known as one of the better walleye lakes in Muskoka. Every year fish in the 4 to 8lbs class are caught with the occasional fish over 10lbs. Pike grow large on the abundance of bait fish with some reaching up to 30 lbs. There are lots of other species such as small mouth bass, perch, whitefish, herring, cat fish and ling. Come and spend a week or weekend in one of our newly renovated cottages. You can fish from the dock, rent a boat, or bring your own boat. We have lots of docking space and a fish cleaning station to clean the day’s catch.

ATVing

Dayspring Cottages is in the Algonquin West ATV club district, a newly formed member of the larger Haliburton ATV Club which administers 1,700 km’s of mapped, signed and insured trails. Trail passes are available at Dayspring Cottages.

Golfing

Katrine has a 9 hole course just 5 min away or you can play at one or more of the great courses in Huntsville, Sundridge, Port Sydney, Bracebridge.

Hiking

It is only 10 minutes to Arrowhead Provincial Park, 10 minutes to the river walk in Burk’s Falls, and 10 minutes to the Sequin Trail, part of the Park to Park trail which links Killbear Provincial Park to Algonquin Provincial Park. Fall colours can be experienced from mid-September to Thanksgiving. Enjoy the incredible colour changes with our mixed forests of hardwood, softwood and coniferous trees displaying a breathtaking variety of yellow, orange, red, and green. The fall leaves can be enjoyed on our many trails, or while sitting on your deck enjoying the reflection of colour on the lake.

R&R

If none of the above is what you are looking for, why not just get away to rest, unwind and do nothing. Enjoy the sun from your deck and the starry night sky from around a campfire. This is the living and it’s good for the soul.
