Peninsula Lake is a mid-sized spring fed lake located just east of the Town of Huntsville in the District of Muskoka, Ontario, Canada. It is nestled between the Town of Huntsville and the Township of Lake of Bays. It is connected to the Huntsville “Chain of Lakes” which offers over 40 kms of boating. Boaters travel the historic waterways formally used the grand old steamships, none more famous than the good ship “Algonquin”. The canal between Fairy and Peninsula lake was completed in 1888, and water transport was provided by private steamers. In 1906 the Algonquin was built at South Portage then hauled to North Portage. The Algonquin transported freight, passengers and most importantly, the mail. She became a focal point for summer residents. On the Algonquin’s morning run, the most important cargo was the mail, that was brought to the post office at North Portage and for some years, to the Springsyde dock. The afternoon run was marked by the throng of tourists who had come up on the afternoon train from Toronto. The hustle and bustle and excitement were often capped by teenagers showing off their diving prowess from the top deck, with the applause of the assembled spectators and the shouted threats of the frustrated Captain. Today, Peninsula Lake is best characterized as being heart of cottage country life. The land immediately surrounding Peninsula Lake is comprised of beautiful residential homes as well as iconic Muskoka cottages. A truly four season destination, property owners have access to world class golfing, alpine and nordic skiing as well as Deerhurst Resort. Remember the past, embrace the future.
