Next Door to Wildlife

You may have to be an early riser. If you walk along roads leading to the resort, you may see deer, moose, fox, bear, mink, martens, otter, beaver, squirrels, skunks, porcupines, raccoons, chipmunks, wolves, and many different species of birds. Wild animals generally avoid humans. However, they will cross your path from time to time while you’re driving or walking. Guests who are early risers have seen them in the morning walking across the beach and open spaces while others are still asleep. They’ll run as soon as they spot you. However, sometimes you’ll be lucky enough to capture them with your camera.

Blue Water Acres is located in the heart of one of Ontario’s most popular snowmobiling regions known as Muskoka. The resort is located in a natural snow belt area making it one of the most reliable regions providing good snow conditions.

You can still do it the ol’ fashioned way. Snowshoeing is a great way to get around in pure virgin snow. In places where you would be waist deep in snow without snowshoes, you can easily traverse through the beautiful country side with them. It’s fun, a bit tricky at first, and good exercise. Equipment can be rented at Blue Water Acres at a cost of $15 for 1/2 day.


Hidden Valley Ski Area is only 15 minutes drive from Blue Water Acres. Play all day, an afternoon, or just for the evening. Then, relax in the privacy of your own cottage in front of your fireplace.
