The last leaf clings to the bough and the forest floor is covered in gold. Time to go leaf kicking! On the water, managed levels are down in preparation for the coming freeze. Boats are still out on the water though. What some people still have to learn, is passage ways are not the same. [...]

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 [...]

Two interesting components of a typical fall market in cottage country are these: 1. Properties come to market that have not been for sale for a long time and 2. Properties which haven’t sold during the season take significant reductions. Both of these have happened this week. In the first instance, a property on Lawrence [...]

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, [...]

Come on in! The water’s fine💦, they said. Up until a week ago the waters in these parts were definitely on the refreshing side. Some might say cold. With heat of the last few days there’s been a definite closing of the tolerance gap. Super heated bodies need to cool down and, for the more [...]

The summer smiles, the summer knows… so goes the song. In these parts we might say, Muskoka smiles, Muskoka knows. The mystique of loon calls, exposed granite shores and whispering pines are special enough. But when the burble of a woody sliding by breaks the soundscape, Muskoka smiles. For more than 120 years inboard motors [...]

June strolls in and kicks back. Days are long and dock time is upon us. For some, early morning is best. Calm waters. Birds doing their bird things. If you’re lucky, a loon will be laughing or a merganser will glide by with its fleet of little ones paddling like mad to keep up. Shore [...]

Tick all the 5 boxes and we call that A class land. 5 boxes? What are they? Whether we’re speaking with sellers or buyers, it’s important they understand it’s the things that cannot be changed that matter most when selling or buying. The 5 boxes of waterfront property are (in no particular order) view, nature [...]

Trillium. Our Provincial flower. Its 3 pointed bloom is easily recognized by graphic representation on official documents of Ontario; Driver’s Licenses and Health Cards. We see the flower almost every day throughout the year. And yet, as it is now, with hardwood bushes being full of them carpeting the forest floor, we have to stop [...]

The last two days have cut through the vestiges of winter, reducing accumulated snow piles to small mounds of ice. In the woods and on trails, where snow remains, sun does not shine. Even the forest floor is delicately greening. Rivers and creeks are brimming. Cataracts and falls of the watershed are in full voice, [...]
