For those of you who would like to spend a few days of your trip simply enjoying the beauty of northwestern Ontario, Stanley's has many different things to offer. First of all, most of our cottages have large decks that are all oriented right over the water. This will provide you with a wonderful place to relax, read a book, sunbathe, or perhaps bird watch. Our younger crowd loves to fish from the dock for small perch, and then feed them to our pet northerns.
Pull up on shore around the lake and maybe pick some blueberries if they are in season (end of July through August).
For the younger crowd, Stanley's has a sand beach with a play structure and lawn chairs. For the more adventurous, try our deep water swimming area with diving board, slide and swim raft. The paddleboat, and canoe are always available for use at no additional charge, and the sauna can be heated up and ready to go in a matter of minutes. And don't forget the basketball net for those of you who like to shoot a few hoops.
Take a cruise down the lake and look for wildlife. There usually is a loon in every bay, and there are several eagle nests minutes away from the resort. Moose move in the early mornings and evenings, so a sunset boat ride with a moose sighting can complete your day.
