May be a dumb question but you know the train will probably go right through Bracebridge on the way to Toronto? I assume you have other things to do in TO and then will go back to Muskoka.

Unless you REALLY like riding the train, renting a car in Toronto and driving it to Muskoka makes more sense (depending on the time of day....re afternoon rush hour).

Port Carling has a good grocery store (IGA) and is the closest to Red Leaves (if you decide to stay there). Rosseau has an old style "general store".

Don't know if the Seguin is still running but if so you could do a dinner cruise of the lakes. The little towns nearby with shops, etc would be Bala, Port Carling, Port Sanfield, and Rosseau.

The Via Rail Canadian from Vancouver doesn't go through Bracebridge at all, but rather follows the CPR line through Parry Sound. It's the Ontario Northland that serves Bracebridge.


I think you meant the Segwun.

Thanks for all the information. I read some more reviews on The Rosseau from people staying there lately on TRIP ADVISOR..more problems with the attitude of the staff than I wanted to deal with. The Residence Inn in Gravenhurst had great reviews, so booked there. The staff is great and the hotel is very nice. Have enjoyed the area and the fall leaves.

Dear Lisbon, Please let me know how your trip went. We too are planning a trip using Marriott points and had considered the JW. I have begun checking out the Residence Inn. I have 3 children (ages 12, 10, and 8). Was there enough to do in the area? We like to hike, bike and sightsee. Fill me in please
