MarketWATCH Muskoka Autumn. This week is classic. Warm days, cool nights, gentle breezes. Morning mists, glasslike waters and no bugs. Perfect for paddle boarding, taking the kayak out or just soaking in dock time. It's a time to decompress and marvel. Leaves are starting to turn. There's the occasional flash of brilliant red as one [...]

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 [...]

Someone flicked the switch. September 22 summer ended with a thump. True, Muskoka still hasn't had it's first frost (we've been close ), but nights are definitely cooler and the lakes are quickly losing their heat. There's been at least one misty morning where the air is significantly cooler than the lakes. In Haliburton, particularly [...]

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 [...]

Yesterday walking off the golf course, my friend said he was going to drive back to the cottage, clean up and return with his wife for a charitable event, I opined that it was a lot of driving. He said that if you live here, there's a lot of driving to do. Hadn't really thought [...]

Bullet dodged. There was concern that later than usual ice out would have ramifications of a flooding kind. Not so this year! Exactly 12 months ago docks on Lake Muskoka were underwater and Rosseau and Joe were recording some of the highest water levels seen above the locks. The Muskoka River was raging and the [...]
