Severn Bridge Hotels

Rugged and remote, even by Ontario standards, Severn Bridge is somewhere you go to get away from it all – and quite possibly, for some competitive ice fishing. This tiny community between 2 vast lakes, Simcoe and Muskoka, doesn’t exactly have a blazing cultural scene, but for pure outdoor adventure, it’s hard to beat. In addition to water-based activities, there’s a vast wilderness to explore on foot, bike, or snowmobile. Connect with your inner wild child, and the possibilities are endless.

Things to see

Of the 2 lakes either side of Severn Bridge, Muskoka is the more famous. Glittering with exclusive, celebrity-owned cottages, PGA golf courses, and 5-star spa retreats, there’s a whole world of luxury on offer here. Whether you challenge yourself to a fiendishly difficult round of golf, or hire a motorboat and blast a trail of foam across the lake, Muskoka is all about outdoor adventure with class. To the south of Severn Bridge, Simcoe attracts a more local, sporty crowd, and while there’s a range of activities, from canoeing to scuba diving, it’s fishing which is the main event. In winter, the lake freezes over completely, and ice fishing becomes a serious sport. The abundant winter snows bring plenty of land-based fun too – you can hit the snowmobile trails in the Queen Elizabeth II Wildlands provincial park for fast-paced fun, or take things at a gentler pace by cross-country skiing.

Hotels in Severn Bridge

A mix of budget hotels, luxury resorts, and independent guesthouses means that there’s something for everyone here. The luxury hotels in Severn Bridge and around offer the complete resort experience, with upmarket facilities, such as full spa services, onsite golf, and gourmet restaurants. Rooms at these hotels are generously proportioned and furnished with contemporary elegance. The budget hotels don’t come with all the frills, but they do provide a comfortable stay, and there’s plenty of value for money, with free breakfast and WiFi on offer. The larger discount hotels also boast leisure facilities, such as fitness centers and swimming pools.

Where to stay

The hotels in this region of Ontario tend to be rather scattered, with lots of independent B&Bs and guesthouses, sometimes in the most remote and unlikely of spots. If you want to retreat from the rest of humanity, then choose one of the more secluded spots, like a guesthouse by Sparrow Lake. If you’d rather mingle with the stars on a luxurious lakeside break, then choose one of the upmarket resorts at the southern end of Lake Muskoka. If you’re on a budget, then opt for nearby Orillia, on Lake Simcoe, where a whole host of discount hotels are available.

How to get to Severn Bridge

The closest major city to Severn Bridge is Toronto, located about 160 kilometers away. Toronto Pearson International Airport is served by flights from all over the world, so it’s very accessible. From there, it’s a drive of about 90 minutes to Severn Bridge, and 2 hours to Lake Muskoka. Hiring a car is by far the best option, particularly as, out in this remote region of Ontario, there’s little public transport between places of interest. In the winter, make sure your vehicle is equipped to cope with heavy snow. It’s possible to travel by bus from Toronto to Orillia too.
