Bala Moon River Boathouse

Allan and Frida are delighted to announce that the lower unit of the Moon River Boathouse in Bala in Muskoka is available for year round vacation rental. Right beside the Moon River, just downstream from the world-famous Bala Falls, yet in town, the Old Boathouse combines the pleasures of being on the water with the convenience of having all the town’s amenities within easy walking distance. The unit has lots of space, with over 1,800 square feet. We live in the upstairs unit, but you have a completely self-contained unit, and total privacy.

    Fabulous place to stay. Beautiful view of the Moon River through floor to ceiling windows. Spacious rooms filled with light. Don’s bakery a short walk away! A peaceful and renewing spot to get away from it all

    Allan & Frida, we just wanted to say “thank you” for the beautiful accommodations. Our family loved staying there for our wedding; watching the sun rise Saturday morning from the front window, listening to the falls and then soaking up the sun on the dock Sunday afternoon. They (and we) congratulate you on the wonderful job you’ve done creating such a warm and inviting space. We’ll be sure to recommend your place to others!
