Gravenhurst Travel Guide
Welcome to Gravenhurst!
Gravenhurst is the cultural centre of Muskoka, combining historical attractions, theatre and live music with the area's scenic appeal. The Gravenhurst Opera House, originally constructed in 1901, is home to theatre productions during the summer and a host of other events throughout the year. The Bethune Memorial House celebrates the life of Dr. Norman Bethune and his impressive contributions to medical science. The first floor of the house has been restored to the time of 1890, offering visitors a portal back in time. Gravenhurst is also home to the oldest operating steamship in North America, the RMS Segwun—Ojibwa for springtime. Originally built in 1887, this former paddleship has been refitted in order to provide luxurious cruises on the breath-taking Muskoka Lakes. During the summer farmer's markets abound, local artists set up outdoor galleries and golfers scrurry to the local links. Colder weather brings winter festivals, trips to the nearby ski hill and crisp days perusing the local boutiques.
Situated in the Muskoka area of Ontario between Port Carling and Gravenhurst, Lake Muskoka is a popular lake surrounded by cottages.
