Cavert, Mary Beth. “Muskoka Dream”. The Shining Scroll (1995): 6-7. Print.
Canadian author L.M. Montgomery took a rare two-week vacation at Bala, Ontario in July 1922. Maud Macdonald, husband Ewan, and sons Chester and Stuart, stayed at Roselawn Lodge on the river by the waterfalls from Lakes Muskoka and Rosseau. They ate meals at Mrs. Pykes, now the Bala Museum. They played in and on the water – they sailed, had picnics, and took drives and boat trips. Maud read, edited her manuscripts, did “fancy work” and looked at views so lovely that they “hurt.” But best of all, she spent a nearly perfect late afternoon and evening along and created what she called a “dream-built castle.”, Source type: Print(0)
