Photo Credit: Aaron Huber MarketWATCH Muskoka: 17 February 2021 Hump day.. we all know what that is. Half way to the weekend. Today is hump day of a sort. We’re half way between the beginning of the year and April. Not exactly, but close enough. Winter is on the wane. That said, we had a [...]

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 [...]

This has been the year for celebrating a little red berry. From the perspective of harvest, there have been better years. Celebrating? Never better! Great weather and a wonderful turn out for Cranberry Festival in Bala. The village was hopping, fall colours were peaking, days were sunny and the bogs were glorious. This year's Cranfest [...]

Monday it happened. What? You might ask. We'd rather not say, especially after looking at charts and histories of various organizations. We were early. Not a record, but early.  Muskoka had its first frost. Now don't get me wrong, the District was not covered in ice. It was just a glancing kiss. Some would call it [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 4 September 2019 September, to our way of thinking, is one of the nicest months in Muskoka. The days are warm, nights cool (very nice for an evening by the fire pit) and the lakes are quiet. Along the shore, the number of lights twinkling across the lake has diminished. An evening cruise [...]

This is a week for shows in Muskoka. Shows of all kinds. Heavenly shows, shows of muscle, art, iron, music and Muskoka shoreline. There's something for every eye to see. Of the heavenly kind the Perseus Meteor Shower begins this week. We think of it as August Fireworks. There have been times when we've seen [...]

Photo credit: Alec Cooper When asked about what they like about being at the cottage, peoples' answers vary. For some, cottage life is about dock time. There are many who enjoy the water - whether they're looking at it, playing in it, boating on it or the sound of it, water is central to a [...]

This past week we've been out most days showing property. If you've ever looked at Muskoka cottage property, you know most of it has a compromise or two. The question is which compromise you're willing to accept? Lately we've been working with people who seem to want beach. As far as the larger lakes in [...]

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 [...]

Phew! It's over. The opening long weekend for Summer 2019 is in the history books. THE SEASON has started. Not the most summery of May 2-4 weekends we've had. For cottagers on the main course of the Muskoka Watershed, it was a weekend of work too. Although water levels are approaching normal there is a [...]
