Shopping and Dining


Shopping Downtown - 'Style at Home' magazine says "Midland - two hours north of Toronto, this sleepy cottagers' haven is a mix of old and new with a vibrant downtown strip and charm to spare - and Little Lake Inn is the recommended place to stay while on your shopping trip!"

We have over 120 unique shops and businesses, and free three-hour parking, seven days a week. Many of our stores are in buildings that have retained their 'old towne' look, with tin ceilings and squeaky wooden floors.

Light up your life with that perfect lighting centrepiece, treat yourself to delectable handmade chocolates or engage your youngster with great games, educational toys and creative crafts.

There's clothing for the adventurer, and boutiques for the ladies, lounge wear, fashion footwear and fun and funky jewellery, and several up-market home decor stores.

Looking for decorating ideas - for your home or cottage - visit our specialists who bring a personal touch to home decor. We have several lovely intimate home decorating stores you will love.

Enjoy a homemade soup, salad, or deli sandwiches at one of our many lunch counters.

Check out Little Lake Inn's walking tour of downtown Midland, and have a great day shopping!
