The traditional Muskoka cottage experience – in a resort setting ...

Billie Bear offers the old-fashioned Muskoka cottage experience – but in a resort setting that lets you be as social or as private as you like. We’re all about family and friends – gather on the sundeck while your kids play at the beach or relax on the porch of our historic recreation hall. Or enjoy the sights and sounds of nature from your own screened porch.

100 acres of relaxation, more than 100 years of hospitality ...

Since 1906, Billie Bear has offered guests a retreat – a refreshing renewal amid the water, forest, and rock of Muskoka. We continue that tradition of providing modern comfort and convenience in an historically rustic setting. Enjoy more than 5 kilometres of hiking trails, an assortment of complimentary watercraft, and over 800 feet of shoreline on Bella Lake, a large, clear, clean lake close to Huntsville, Ontario.

A Muskoka heritage...

At Billie Bear, you’ll find many treasured elements of years past. Rehabilitation of one of our common buildings in 2006 earned us a Built Heritage Award from the Muskoka Heritage Foundation (now the Muskoka Conservancy), and work on the former dining room – our central Recreation Hall – is underway.
