If you look closely, snow might be visible in valleys and shady spots. For the most part, Muskoka is in spring!

March break is upon us in Ontario. A surprising number of people have decided to take their break in cottage country. Ice conditions are as good as they have been for years.

Muskoka MarketWATCH: 22 February 2018 Gravenhurst, Port Carling and Bracebridge have all enjoyed celebrating winter in Muskoka since our last Marketwatch.

Winter in [...]

The new listing service, Matrix, is up and running. The change has had a few minor bumps. Largely though, the change has gone smoothly.
