I really like Vernon Lake, it is quiet and really large. You can boat into The town of Huntsville and enjoy dinner or do your shopping. It is a darker lake because of the Tanins from the leaves but it is not a dirty lake, just a different colour.
Since 2012 48 waterfront cottages have sold on Lake Vernon in Muskoka.
Lake Vernon is located in two geographic townships, Stisted and Chaffey, northwest of the Town of Huntsville. Lake Vernon can be accessed via Muskoka Rd 2 to the north and Muskoka Rd 3 to the south off of Hwy 11. Lake Vernon is the largest lake situated within the Town of Huntsville. Source: Muskoka Water Web
