"Muskoka: North from Toronto, as has already been said, the Canadian Pacific runs to connect with the main line at Sudbury. This line, which for a considerable distance follows the shore of Georgian Bay, taps a very rich holiday district -- or rather, series of districts. The first of them is the famous Muskoka district, one of the most popular summer resorts in Canada. Bala Station is the gateway to this delightful region. The principal lakes are three in number -- Muskoka, Joseph and Rosseau. These, with lively watercourses flowing into and connecting them, afford opportunity for every kind of aquatic sport; and that the Muskoka region is highly popular, especially in the "dog days" when cities are sweltering under heat waves, can be gleaned from the large number of settlements around the shores, and the numerous hotels, some of large size, which offer a range of accommodation and price to suit every purse and taste."
