Photo by Jakob Owens on Unsplash Fall. Autumnal Equinox. Pumpkins. Turkey. Hallowe’en. Traditions to follow and new ones to make. A time of sweaters, raking leaves and walks in the woods. Bright blue skies dominate memories. It’s also a season of storms and preparing for winter. But we’ll leave yard clean up and dead heading [...]

Gears have changed. School is in session. The summer folk have left. The place seems a little empty. Yes, they’ll be back, but it’s not the same. Our summer vibe is on hold. Not for a year, but certainly through the week. Come the weekend, and the weather’s fine, the vibe will be felt throughout [...]

Every once in a while a unique property comes to market. In 2007 such a property did. On Lake Rosseau it had smaller frontage (100’) facing west. Gentle land. It’s uniqueness was twofold. First, it had an old two storey boathouse with two bedrooms and a full kitchen. Second, the cottage was new, a rebuild, [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 18 August 2021 In ‘normal’ years there’s a rhythm. Summer flows to a beat. At the beginning there’s a huge ‘Ahhh’. The release of tension and anticipation of dock time, new tricks to learn on the board, summer friends (the lifelong kind you only see in summer), fire pits and s’mores. The rituals [...]

Photo Credit: Jamie Sherman. We’ve recently talked about the watershed and lake levels. Those in Haliburton which feed the Trent-Severn are at spring height, meaning their water level is now several feet above where it would be at the end of July.
