Photo Credit: Alexandre-Gregoire Not quite the Dog Days, but still summery. Our heat wave has broken leaving the lake warm and luxurious. Today, with the cooler morning, mist curled its way skyward. Somewhere beyond the bay two loons laughed and closer to shore, a fish momentarily carved the surface of the lake sending gentle waves [...]

Summer! Water's warm, days are long and dock time reigns supreme. We've been blessed with warm, dry days and clear night skies. The peak of the season and, in spite of the pandemic, much to be thankful for. This is indeed a beautiful country and the opportunity of enjoying the 'near north', life shaping. For [...]

Photo Credit: Basil Thomas on Unsplash Last week we mentioned the beginning of summer. At least that's what the calendar indicates ...the longest day. However the weather gods this week decided to play a few games. Two days ago we received 100 mm of rain. Yesterday our high was about 15C. It was interesting to note points [...]

Summer officially starts this weekend with the longest day of the year. I bet we can all name several songs with summer in the title. Two from the 60's come to mind this week, for different reasons. Summer Wind was a chart topper for Sinatra. This week Muskoka really had a summer wind, accompanied by [...]

We are easing into summer after a long spring. The lakes are warming and recreational boating is returning. Even short term rentals are OK. Bed and Breakfasts and AirBNBs are now open. Life, though, is the same here in cottage country as it is elsewhere. Distancing prevails and people are vigilant. Relative to the GTA [...]

Carefully, oh so carefully, we have been working. In the past couple of weeks we've had 5 offers accepted. Two of our listings have sold and we have successfully negotiated deals for 3 buyers. Real estate in the time of COVID is different, but it's still active. We've also had enquiries from people who did [...]

  Although we've been quiet for a while, Muskoka, Haliburton and Parry Sound are still here! Trees are budding, spring flowers have been blooming in gardens and yesterday we saw dogtooth violets in the bush. It won't be long before was see a carpet of trilliums! This year ice went out early, by about a [...]

Photocredit: @alexander_briere COVID 19 is having an effect on how we operate in a number of ways. Today grocery outlets in Muskoka instituted a much more regimented and controlled way of negotiating the store. Probably the same where you live too. There are barriers between customers and check out staff to prevent droplets from migrating. [...]

MarketWATCHMuskoka: 29 February 2020 March is coming in and we've had a good taste of winter. Muskoka's Festivals of Winter have pretty much run their course. Not like the GTA or Golden Horseshoe, we really have snow here. Someone came up the other day to look at property in sneakers. It doesn't work so well [...]
