Aerial Muskoka video shows why fall is a great time of year in cottage country

When Canadians think of cottaging, one of the first words that comes to mind is “Muskoka.” Dotted with beautiful lakes and gorgeous woodland, Muskoka is so iconic that we even have a type of chair named after it.

While a good winterized cottage can be an excellent destination during the colder months, people tend to appreciate the pleasant, halcyon days of summer when it comes to renting or vacationing at the cabin. For this reason it’s no surprise that many cottage towns clear out during the winter, leaving just those who live up there year round to commune with nature.

Fall is a season often tinged with sadness in cottage country. The changing of the leaves signal an end to long days of fishing and nights around the campfire. But a video created by Jon Corbin celebrates this beautiful transitory period in Muskoka. A series of sweeping aerial shots gives a tour of some of Muskoka’s most famous areas, from cranberry farms to pristine lakes.

Whether you’ve had a chance to visit this particular patch of Canada, or just want to see what all the fuss is about, take a minute or two to enjoy fall in Muskoka from a bird’s eye view.
