By |2019-03-20T03:45:54+00:00March 20th, 2019|Market Watch|0 Comments

MarketWATCH Muskoka: March 20, 2019 The last couple of weeks have cleared snow from sidewalks, driveways and lawns in most of the Golden Horseshoe. We were there on Sunday and heard robins singing. Definitely early spring in the city! Cottage Country is more like late winter. Snowbanks abound. Last week's rain has turned those hills into [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 12 March 2019 There's an old saying about March "In like a lion, out like a lamb" the reverse is also true. In essence it's saying March will begin or end with a storm. We've certainly had lots of storms lately, so another won't be a surprise. A couple of weeks ago the [...]

Photo Credit: @philevis via Muskoka Tourism MarketWATCH Muskoka: 15 February 2019 This week has confirmed winter is here. Even the deer out my window are in the white stuff up past their knees. It's fun to see them leaping through the snow... I'm waiting to see one roll over with its legs in the air. [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 14 December 2018 'Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful'... goes the song. The part that goes 'let it snow, let it snow, let it snow' has rung true. Muskoka and the rest of cottage country is covered in a blanket of white. Some of it more than [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: November Edition

Lake effect. Living in cottage country, lake effect has lots of meaning. Lake effect has impact on land value. Lake effect has impact on recreational activity. Lake effect has influence on how you feel, just sitting and watching waves - whether they're sparkling in the sun or crashing on the shore. Even the lake effect [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: Halloween Edition

By |2018-10-31T02:04:47+00:00October 31st, 2018|General News|0 Comments

MarketWATCH Muskoka: Halloween Edition   Icing sugar is sweet. Seeing Muskoka sprinkled white this past weekend was truly a sweet introduction to the coming season. Sure, the confection has gone in one way. It's pretty clear, though, that all across cottage country, in its towns and villages, ghouls, goblins and werewolves have been circulating with [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 17 October 2018 They tell me cranberries are an anti-oxidant. If they are, then more than 15,000 attendees of Cranberry Festival in Bala last weekend are a lot healthier today! Apparently Saturday was a record day. There's a question whether the festival surpassed total attendance records, but it is known that all passes [...]

Although we have a short burst of warmer weather this week, Friday last saw the first frost in Muskoka. The forests responded and our hillsides and shorelines are resplendent in the reds and golds of autumn. The next 10 days will be glorious and just in time for Bala's annual Cranberry Festival all weekend long. [...]

Change is definitely in the air and on the horizon. There's something about fall air that's different. It seems crisper, cleaner. It's almost as if it's been put though a filter. Good thing, too! This is the time of year when the forest transitions from being a backdrop to becoming the main event. Almost daily [...]
