Rosseau
Monteith House  Clear Sky Beautiful lakes  that reflect  the  "clear sky"
Land which led the Indian to bestow its musical name
upon it, tree-hidden rivers, hundreds of pine-
clad islands, a bracing summer climate, and a wealth of opportunity for recreation—this is the Muskoka region, so firmly
established in the affection of those who know it that it now
has become one of the best known summer playgrounds of
this continent.
The Muskoka Lakes comprise three large lakes and some
smaller ones. The principal lakes are Muskoka, 21 miles in
length, Joseph, 18 miles, and Rosseau, 13 miles. They are
comparatively narrow in places, but then widen out to stretches of open water as much as six miles across. Around the
shore line, concentrating at numerous settlements, nestle
hotels, farm houses, summer villas', and pretty cottages. The
lakes contain between four and five hundred islands of every
shape and size, many of which are for rent or sale.
Cool Summer     Muskoka has almost as many charms as it
Days has islands.     It is a region of rich coloring,
sparkling waters, clear skies, and pine-
scented breezes. Its cool recesses are an ideal refuge during
the hot days of summer. When the heat waves descend upon
the city, a pleasant journey from Toronto brings one to Bala,
itself a popular centre or the beginning of a delightful sail
over the lakes to one's pet resort, where in a few minutes a
swim, a round of golf, a game of tennis, or whatever it is, will
begin to put a fresh complexion altogether upon the slightly
wilted face of things.
Bala The gateway of the Muskoka region is Bala, a
four-hour ride north of Toronto on the Canadian Pacific. Bala is situated on a bay on the western shore
of Lake Muskoka at the outlet of the Muskosh River, which
here pours over a beautiful fall and continues its way through
some exquisite woodland scenery down to Georgian Bay. In
close proximity (from three to four miles) are Long Lake, Clear
Lake, Echo Lake, Nine Mile Lake, and Black Lake.
Bala possesses a number of excellent hotels and boarding
houses where accommodation may be obtained at reasonable
rates. It is the most convenient place for sportsmen, canoeists, and campers to obtain supplies and guides. It is also the
starting point for the beautiful Moon River, Georgian Bay,
and Blackstone Lake canoe trip.
Lake The wharf adjoins the station, and here one
Muskoka may transfer to a steamer of the Muskoka
Lakes Navigation Company, waiting to speed
up the lakes. On its journey it is met at junction points by
other steamers, the service being so arranged that in the summer time all points on the lake can be reached twice daily in
each direction. The steamers are well-kept, comfortably
furnished and with dining saloons.
The steamer makes a circuit of the northern part of Lake
Muskoka, making stops at a number of points. At Beaumaris a change is made, one service running from here to
Bracebridge, situated at the south-east end of the lake, and
others to Lakes Rosseau and Joseph.    The latter route is
PRINTED   IN   CANADA.   1924

through the short Indian River, which connects Lake Muskoka with Lake Rosseau. Port Carling, on the Indian River,
is the centre of the lakes, whither the life of the lake converges.
All traffic must pass through a lock, and the scene is frequently
lively and picturesque as steamers, launches, boats and canoes
crowd the approaches.
Lake From the lock we enter Rosseau, often regard-
Rosseau ed as the fairest of the lakes.     Its southern
portion is fairly gemmed with islets, and here
more summer cottages are to be found than in any other
part of the lakes. Island folds back on island in innumerable
shades of rich, sunlit green. Tiny piers and boat-houses jut
out into the waters of the lake. At times it would seem as
if the steamer would be caught in the maze of islands, but
always the boat takes a gentle turn and a new stretch of lake
comes into view. The steamer calls at several points on the
way to Rosseau, at the northern end of the lake, where the
beautiful Shadow River flows in.
Lake Port Sandfield stands at the junction of Lakes
Joseph Rosseau and Joseph, the latter, famous for its
clearness, stretching off to the left. It has
wide open stretches which the yachtsman will appreciate, and
calmer reaches among the islands more suited to the
canoeist.
Recreation There need be no dull hours in a Muskoka vacation; bathing in the soft waters of the lakes,
canoeing, sailing and motor boating, golfing, tennis, fishing,
walks through the woods, and steamboat excursions provide
something new for each day. There is music and dancing
in the evenings at the majority of the resorts, and an enjoyable
social life. As a result of restocking the waters with fry, the
fishing in the Muskoka Lakes shows improvement each year.
The smaller lakes particularly attract the angler.    There are
ideal camp sites available on the shores of every lake, which
may be occupied in most cases without charge.
Muskoka offers perfect immunity from hay-fever, for at the
season of the year when victims of that complaint suffer most,
the Muskoka district is swept by cool, pine-scented breezes.
There are five golf clubs in play in the Muskoka district, all
most picturesquely situated—Beaumaris, Port Carling, Windermere, Royal Muskoka and Rosseau, the first three being
18-hole courses and the other two 9-hole courses.
Muskoka Unique among Canadian summer holiday re-
Assembly sorts is Muskoka Assembly, on Lake Rosseau.
A beautiful natural park of over 200 acres,
with three miles of waterfront, located at the north end of
Tobin's Island, the largest of the 400 islands of the Muskoka
Lakes, Muskoka Assembly is the summer centre of the activities of The Canadian Chautauqua Institution, providing an
organized holiday with "something to do, somewhere to go,
something worth hearing every day." The Chautauqua program of lectures, music, and dramatics is a literary centre
interpreting the best in Canadian life, and attracts people of
culture from all over the Continent during the summer.
The recreation facilities are unexcelled, and include several
long safe sandy bathing beaches, a splendid bowling course of
eight greens, tennis courts, volley ball, fast launch, boat livery,
good bass fishing, and first class eighteen-hole golf course nearby. Accommodation can be secured at Epworth Inn, a
modern summer hotel, open from June 27 to Sept. 15. There
are cottages and floored tents to rent. A delightful cottage
community is developing.
An illustrated booklet may be had on application to The
Canadian Chautauqua Institution Limited, Muskoka Assembly P.O., Ontario.
A Hundred- A very attractive one-day hundred-mile cruise
Mile Cruise is now available to Mirror Lake, at the head of
Little Lake Joseph. This cruise is performed
by the steamship "Sagamo," the flagship of the Muskoka
Navigation Company fleet, with a capacity of 700 passengers,
a dining room, and large deck space for dancing.
The steamer leaves Muskoka Wharf at 7.00 a.m. with a connecting steamer from Bala at 7.30 a.m. to Port Keewaydin.
Traversing the network of Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph, it
arrives at Mirror Lake at 12.30. Return is made to the same
points, reaching Bala, by connection at 7.30 p.m.
Severn Reached by way of Severn Falls Station, on
River the Toronto-Sudbury Line of the C.P.R., 108
miles north of Toronto, Severn River affords
excellent pickerel and black bass fishing, as well as good boating. The Severn River forms a picturesque route for a canoe
or launch trip from Severn Falls Station to Gloucester Pool
and the lower Georgian Bay resorts, as craft of this description
can be readily handled over the Marine Railway at Big Chute,
which is the only obstacle to free navigation.

SEVERN  RIVER
(Continued from previous page)
The Severn Inn (now under reconstruction) has good accommodation, with tennis courts, bowling green and dance hall.
The owner has in addition a boathouse, where skiffs, canoes and
gasoline launches can be secured. There are many good
camping sites in the vicinity, and bass and pickerel are
plentiful in the "Lost Channel" of the Severn River. The
Severn Falls Golf and Outing Club is located near Severn
Falls, in which association membership may be obtained by
the visitor on payment of a small subscription.
Another hotel, prettily situated up the river about a mile
and a quarter from the station, is the Hotel Waubic. HOTELS AND BOARDING  HOUSES AT MUSKOKA

SEVERN  RIVER
(Continued from, previous page)
The Severn Inn (now under reconstruction) has good accommodation, with tennis courts, bowling green and dance hall.
The owner has in addition a boathouse, where skiffs, canoes and
gasoline launches can be secured. There are many good
camping sites in the vicinity, and bass and pickerel are
plentiful in the "Lost Channel" of the Severn River. The
Severn Falls Golf and Outing Club is located near Severn
Falls, in which association membership may be obtained by
the visitor on payment of a small subscription.
Another hotel, prettily situated up the river about a mile
and a quarter from the station, is the Hotel Waubic.
