Shores of Deer Lake is a real treasure. The family that owns it are kind and friendly and work really hard. You can tell they love it. I've stayed here multiple times for work and vacation, in every season, through power outs and everything, and they always communicate well and are super helpful. This is a great place for families or solo travellers and everyone in between. I get some of the best sleep of my life here. The lake is frozen in winter, and in summer is shallow and warm for good distance from shore. You can also walk in the woods. I've seen bunnies and deer wandering around. The units are clean and well insulated and have multiple electrical outlets. I travel with a power bar but haven't had to use it! Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting combo of nature, wifi, great sleep, friendly hardworking hosts, and your own kitchen. I post as many photos as I can!

The Shores of Deer Lake offers newly renovated suites with private kitchen, bathroom, queen-sized bedroom, and living space. Each unit has basic access to wifi and a 42" flat screen TV so you can bring a gaming console or dvd player, etc. The building is only about 20 meters to the lakeside and has access into the water from a sandy beach. The resort is great year round with all the fun of camping and beach going in the summer, to the thrill of snowmobiling and exploring the wilderness in the winter. You can't forget about those Autumn colours.. Highly recommended, and growing in popularity.

I would Highly Recommend!! My Fiance and I spent a week here and wish we could have stayed longer! It was absolutely beautiful! Everyone was friendly and helpful if you needed anything. Derek who pre booked us for next year was amazing too! The cottage litterally has everything youd ever think of for the kitchen which was great so we didnt have to bring as much! Was super clean, Ioved love loved the smell of bleach when we walked in, It made me feel more comfortable knowing it was super clean! Especially during this crazy covid time. There were bbq's out to be used, cute private beach, fire pits, cute lights out back that go on at night, muskoka chairs on the deck just outside your back door! With a absolutely gorgeous view! Especially In the morning seeing right through those two big windows!! So beautiful I absolutely loved and enjoyed our stay! So happy we found this little treasure spot! Highly recommend for a great relaxing vacation spot!! And super kid and animal friendly to ...
