MarketWATCH Muskoka: 20 JULY 2023 Ribs. Did someone say ribs? This weekend, Gravenhurst’s Ribfest is on deck. Definitely a fun time - especially if ‘party’ is an important part of your vocabulary. With half a dozen rib vendors or more, the choice of flavours is varied, tasty and interesting. Doneness, too, whether your preference is [...]

We slid into July like a base runner coming home. Rain gone, heat on and summer full bore. Safe! Water’s warming nicely, haze is abating some and summer activity has begun. Markets are in full swing, Muskoka Artists are having their summer show in only 10 days!  The Antique and Classic Boat Show is this [...]

It’s happened. The longest day. In these parts evening lasts until about 10pm before nightfall. Dusk lingers and amazingly, birds continue their conversation until dark. No sleeping in though, at 0430 they are back at it. Hard to tell whether it’s joy they’re sharing in the morning, or comments about lack of sleep. Regardless, for [...]

Could it be? Ice out early this year? Some certainly say so. Nights above freezing, sunny days with warm winds. The ingredients are right. Add in the water flow over the falls on the Muskoka and Rosseau Rivers. Ice is breaking its bonds as big lake levels have risen more than a foot in the [...]

Photo Credit: Crystal Vienneau, Muskoka Realtor The calendar is pretty precise. We have equinoxes in spring and fall… actually those events are considered to be the beginning of the season. Vernal and Autumnal equinox is how they are known. Likewise, the longest and shortest days are considered to be the beginning of their seasons. We’re [...]

As the seasons change, walking through the woods, kicking up fallen leaves stimulates the senses. The smell of leaves is different this time of year. And scents, as you know, stimulate memory. One memory I have from childhood is wondering why, when it gets cold, do trees take their clothes off? Another was watching goldfinches [...]

This past week has been true to the season with new listings and reductions. A bit like being a kid in a candy store, there’s a lot to see! Not only a lot to see in real estate, the Pre-Cambrian Shield as aglow. Colour is popping everywhere. A particular tree we’ve been watching started to [...]

September is a fine time for walking in the woods. Days are warm, swarming insects few, and the sights and sounds of the forest point towards seasonal change. The forest canopy has thinned, animals are busy gathering and tucking away their winter store and the occasional branch is flamed in bright red, standing proud against [...]

The nights are slowly lengthening and, if the early mornings in these parts are anything to go by, they are cooling too. With the cool comes clearer skies. After sunset, the sky takes a page from the Webb telescope. As far as the eye can see there are points of light. Magnificent! On the dock, [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 9 June 2022 Turn, turn, turn… to everything there is a season. This is our 20th year selling Muskoka. We’ve mapped cycles of waterfront sales, watched waterfront intently and made prognostications over the years. Analysis is part of who we are. We have to know the market. We started relating cottage activity to [...]
