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 [...]

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 [...]

Ditchburn, Johnson, Duke, Minett-Sheilds, Greavette are all names of Muskoka boat builders. Some of them go back to the 1800's. Greavette was making wooden boats in the 1970's. Wooden boats are something Muskoka is known for, even today. This Saturday, at Gravenhurst wharf, the Annual Antique boat show is underway. If you've never been, it's [...]

The River. Long a symbol of passage, a means of transportation, a subject of song. The river flows. At the Hub of the Lakes (Port Carling) the river is the connection between Lake Muskoka and Lakes Rosseau and Joseph. It's called the Indian River because on its banks, when traders, trappers and lumbermen came north, [...]

Spring. We think of daffodils, crocuses and robins. So far in Muskoka we have robins. This past week saw up to 10cm of snow and, with -10C lows at night, more ice. Bracebridge Falls is a trickle and the river is low pending the onslaught of melt we'll see in the next 3 weeks or [...]

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 [...]

Last week we talked about the fall market and mentioned that properties being listed at this time of year represent good value as sellers want to sell their properties this year. This week there's a property coming to market on Kahshe Lake, one of the shortest commutes from the GTA, with great privacy, SW exposure, [...]

It's here! The last long weekend of the summer. We have a warm week leading up to it too! In fact, records are being set as we speak. Night time temperatures in Muskoka are staying warm. The lakes are not cooling yet. They might even be getting warmer. Some years, nights have had their cooling [...]

As we approach fall in Muskoka, the pace of play changes. Think languid. Think reflective. Think art. For 40 years the Fall studio tour has been a highlight for those who live here and those who want to. The Artistic community in cottage country has grown over the years. Although we think of The Group [...]

Ditchburn, Duke, Minett Shields, SeaBird, Greavette were all there as well as many others. Fine craftsmanship, beautiful lines, wonderful finishes with sounds to match. The burble [...]
