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 [...]

The thought of taking a siesta from the heat of the day and then watching this summertime classic in the cool of night is delicious! No [...]

Photo by Kristopher Roller on Unsplash   Before our next MarketWatch we will have marked our longest day of the year and formal entry into summer. The solstice. It’s a time steeped in the mists of time and the minds of humans. Structures like Stonehenge and megaliths like Abu Simbel are probably fairly recent in [...]

Cottage country. What comes to mind first? That old cottage smell? The slamming screen door? S’mores? Loons laughing? For each of us there’s a trigger. Running off the dock is one. Jumping from the boathouse roof is another. Just messing about in boats, whether canoes or tinnies. There’s something about summers at the lake that [...]

During the off season, lakes are darker. Yes, some land lights are visible but navigation is a land form thing. Getting to where you [...]

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 [...]

We know the forest is dry. A fire ban is in effect. One day last week we could smell the smoke from Parry Sound 33 an 11,000 hectare burn north and west of Parry Sound more than 150 kms away. On the upside, smoke haze leads to great sunsets. We understand, too, that forest fires [...]
