We are bringing back a Muskoka classic with a fresh look. In 2020, the Muskoka Canoe & Rowing Shop opens its doors for the first time in twenty-five years. And while we no longer sell canoes and rowboats, we again carry elevated apparel with the Canoe Shop logo as well as other products that celebrate Muskoka and its history.
The Muskoka Canoe & Rowing Shop celebrates the magic of Muskoka’s boating heritage. Launched in 1985 in Port Sandfield, we sold Canadian-made cedar-canvas canoes and locally produced paddles and rowboats – bringing the simpler pleasures of Muskoka to another generation of cottagers. Eventually the shop sold Canadian-made sweatshirts and t-shirts with the shop logo – an instant hit! People flocked to the shop to get the first pieces of apparel that said “Muskoka.” For some, it was a memento of their visit to the beautiful region; for others, it was a sign of being part of a special community.
We look forward to seeing you this summer and harkening back to the simpler pleasures of Muskoka together.
