Winter is not just for Snowmobilers in Muskoka

 We are patiently waiting for the snow to arrive.  I think next week it will come!  Friends and family ask about the people that come and stay with us in the Winter and what do they do.  They assume snowmobilers are our number one winter activity.  Last winter it was the case but that was because Muskoka was the only region close to Toronto and the GTA that had any snow!  (Muskoka gets the lake effect snow blown over from Georgian Bay.)

In addition to snowmobiling, Muskoka offers dog sledding, cross country and downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing, ice skating, snowshoeing, hiking, tree top treking, and ice fishing.

Other activities include relaxing by the fireplace or soaking in an outdoor hot tub.  There's lots of restaurants closeby that offer everything from fast food to fine dining.

The Quiet

 A small place in the country like ours offers something that you can't find in town or the city - Quiet.

People tell me that they sleep better, sleep longer and get more rest.  I know that when I go away and stay somewhere else I don't get a great sleep.  I'm not used to the noise. 

I bring my own travel pillow but it isn't the same .

Is Wifi something you need when you travel?

When we travel , it's a given that I need to have access to the internet wherever we stay.  I use it to keep in touch with family and business by email.  We use it to find where to  eat that's nearby and any local attractions that we may wish to visit. It's almost like an extension of the concerierge service you find at the big hotels.

When we were away last weekend, we stayed in downtown toronto for one night and out in Bowmanville for a second night.  Both were chain hotels and relatively new.  The one in downtown toronto had internet problems where I kept being logged off after a few seconds and the Bowmanville Hotel had no wifi except in the lobby, but would lend you a cable for your laptop.  What do you think I'm going to remember about these hotels? Not how clean or up to date or the great breakfast... I'm going to remember the wifi hastles.

At Beauview, we have a wifi network that runs throughout the property.  There are signal boosters for the far away places.  iPhones and Apple devices as well as laptops can all be accommodated by the network.  We get a strong internet signal from down the lake. So strong that we are also an internet access point for our cottage neighbours.

We want your stay at Beauview to be problem free.  The internet service should just be there... no worries!
