Directions and Tour Highlights:
Muskoka Lakes Farm & Winery is a short drive from Vintages Dining Room heading south towards Bala. At the winery enjoy the Tutored Wine Tasting, a guided tasting of Muskoka wines from dry-dessert. Once you’ve tasted all the wines, have some more of your top favourites in a wine flight with Wine & Cheese on the Patio overlooking scenic surroundings like the cranberry marsh and colourful tree line. There is a shop at the winery as well, so make sure to take home a bottle or two (or more) of your favourites!
After wining, dining, and shopping, head back to Port Carling’s town core and visit the local shops. You’ll find everything from cottage and home décor to apparel. Before arriving at the town core, visit Field of Greens for some amazing cranberry inspired baked goods to make the road trip even more enjoyable.
- Your next stop is the JW Marriott The Rosseau Muskoka Resort & Spa to treat yourself to an invigoration treatment, like their delightful cranberry scrub treatment available during the harvest. Unwind with massages, facials, body treatments and wellness rituals as you decompress from your busy day.
- From the spa, take a short trip to stay at one of Jayne’s Cottages on beautiful Lake Rosseau. You’ll find the cottage rental best suited to you; from intimate and cozy to spacious and extravagant, all with a luxurious feel. A cranberry themed gift basket awaits in your dream cottage rental courtesy of Jayne’s Cottages, in celebration of the mighty little berry! The best part? Enjoy freshly prepared meals with the highest quality ingredients right at the cottage! You can experience true luxury and convenience by opting for a private chef to shop, cook, serve and clean.
