May 2013 Moose sightings galore in Algonquin park this past week. Our motor boat is now in the water on Lake of Bays, Muskoka. Small wildlife has been seen on our property. chipmunks, squirrels, groundhog, and the ducks, geese and the haunting call of a loon at night. April 2013 The ice has gone from Lake of Bays, Muskoka. Fishing season begins. You can catch lake trout and speckled trout close to the surface of the icy cold water without any special fishing gear. In my travels around the Algonquin park area, I saw a moose and a deer. We get our last bit of snow this weekend and then Spring returns. The snow has melted in many places. Fishing for Lake trout and Speckled Trout is best just after the ice goes out in late April. The fish are close to the surface so you don't need special downriggers and other equipment to catch a fish. The moose come out of hiding to be seen near the highway in Algonquin Park. April and May are great times to see wildlife especially moose and deer. March 2013 End of the Winter season. At the end of March break, we still have lots of snow to play in but it won't last long. The ice leaves by mid April and Lake of Bays, Muskoka offers great spring fishing for lake trout and speckled trout. Bring a motor boat or rent one from a local marina. February 2013 - Snow conditions are perfect for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, snow shoeing, ice skating, ice fishing and dog sledding. Family day weekend should be a fun time! January 2013 - Snowmobile trails opened this weekend in our area. You can also go skiing or snowshoeing in Arrowhead or Algonquin Park. December 2012 Snow has come to stay in Muskoka. Hidden Valley Ski area is open throughout the holidays. Algonquin Park will be opening their ski trails soon. We have snowshoes you can borrow. June 2012 The Lake of Bays water temperature has warmed up suitable for swimming. The water trampoline is ready to play on. Canoes and kayaks with lessons are available for use. Moose have been seen in Algonquin park each week.
Updated April 1, 2012 The docks are installed on Lake of Bays ready for Spring fishing. This is a great time to catch lake trout as they are close to the surface. No special fishing gear required. See our Facebook page for photos of the moose we saw in Algonquin Park.
The snow is melting fast. We have seen deer, chipmunks, and lots of birds out and about. It won't be long before the ice is out and the lake water returns!
We still have snow for March Break Activities in Muskoka. Snow tubing, skiing, dog sled rides and skating on the Lake of bays. Dining is close by in Huntsville.
The snowmobilers have arrived this weekend. Most of the snowmobile trails in Muskoka and around Huntsville Lake of Bays, are open. The only trails to stay away from are those that cross over lakes.

common question for the Spring is "What is there to do?
My answer is PLAY ! !
Our U.K. Connection - We have had several couples recently stay with us that are from the United Kingdom. One couple from Devon said that Air Transat has direct flights from Exeter U. K. to Toronto, Canada each week. It is much closer for them to go to Exeter than Heathrow airport and much less expensive with no expensive overnight stay in an airport hotel. They took in the sights of Niagara Falls, Toronto and then came to the country to stay with us at Beauview. They went canoeing, fishing, hiking in Algonquin Park, saw a moose and deer and black squirrels!
How about Bird Watching?
We are looking forward to the ice leaving the lake on April 22nd. How do I know this?? Because it seems to happen at the same time each year! After the ice leaves, there's great spring fishing for lake trout close to the surface.
Congratulations to Jim and Gabriela on their engagement! Jim proposed to Gabriela at Beauview on March 22nd and Gabriela said YES!
