03 Sep Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery | Fall Activities
Many people travel to Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery, formerly the Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh & Winery, in the fall during the cranberry harvest season to wade in the pools of cranberries. As you’re looking for fall activities and things to do in Ontario during your trips to Canada, this local cranberry farm is a must-stop! Located just 46.8 km from Christie’s Mill Inn & Spa, plan a day trip to explore the farm during your vacation. Here are a few things you can expect to experience during your adventures to the farm.
Fall Season Trips
You’ll be surrounded by the breathtaking Muskoka fall foliage as you arrive at Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery. During any given year the farm produces around 400,000 lbs of cranberries and is just one of two cranberry farms in Ontario. In late October, harvest season, guests are invited to travel from near and far to plunge into a sea of cranberries. During the autumn’s peak, this is one of the biggest attractions in Ontario to experience during your trips to Canada!
Winter Season Trips
Canada produces a ton of snow and sunshine throughout winter, which is why we suggest putting on your ice skates during a sunny afternoon. During the winter season, the farm opens the ice trail, which is an ice skating path stretching 1.2 km around 12 acres. They also rent snowshoes and provide well-groomed walking trails, which will be perfect for those couples on a romantic getaway in Canada.
No matter what time of year you visit, the winery is always open and offers patio seating in the summer, fall activities, and perfect daily winter adventures. The winery offers a unique taste of Muskoka with their handcrafted sweet wines such as their cranberry and blueberry creations and red maple dessert wine. During the winter you can sip on the hot mulled wine or hot cran-apple cider by an open fire pit while delighting yourself to their local cheese plate that comes with Ontario artisan-made cheese. Spend the afternoon with a wine tasting or tour. Before you leave, walk through their store and bring home gifts such as dried cranberries, chocolate berries, jams, teas, and so much more!
Peaceful Muskoka Inn
After a long day exploring the local cranberry farm, head back to Christie’s Mill Inn & Spa to relax at our lakefront inn.
