In 1876, at an advanced age of 55 (in those days anyway) Robert Walker and his family left Scotland. They headed for Pennsylvania but changed course part way through their journey upon hearing of free farm land being offered in Muskoka - somewhere north of Toronto!
The Walkers were granted some 200 acres. Their "Homestead" happened to include an entire lake, and among the many rocky outcrops, some reasonably good farmland. They put down roots and stayed, when many others lasted only a few years before moving on. The Walkers farmed in the summer and cut ice off Walker Lake and worked at lumbering in the winter.
Imagine a Muskoka wedding on beautiful Walker Lake. Your special day would include a fantastic evening of fine dining and dancing in a historic lodge with stone fireplaces and wood beamed ceilings. A warm and cozy ambience set aside exclusively for you. You could get married on the dock with the shimmering lake as your backdrop, or if it rains, inside in front of one of our cozy fireplaces.
Muskoka is one of Canada's most popular wedding destinations. Not only is it stunningly beautiful, it offers couples a fine selection of photographers, videographers, florists, bridal consultants, and places to stay. Walker Lake Resort is the perfect place for a desination wedding in Muskoka.
Add to this mix the Norsemen´s rustic ambience, fantastic food, private lakeside location and some of the most dramatic wedding photo backdrops to be found anywhere, the Norsemen Walker Lake Resort is the ideal place to take your wedding vows.
