It was really cool to see original buildings built from 1800's..felt like I stepped back in time. Everyone who worked there was pleasant and friendly. The price of admission is very affordable.

Very authentic and well preserved part of muskoka heritage. It’s amazing how hard basic needs were back then...no electricity or running water...forget about firewood as your only heat source...even boiling water was a chore. I think all teens should live this way for a month...More
