🦃Turkey’s done except for the 🍗left overs. 🌳Trees too… only a few 🍂leaves left. What doesn’t seem done is the warm weather. Quite amazing! After all, we have had ❄snow in these parts at Thanksgiving. Not only that, our friend Walter, went for a swim…🏊‍♂️ not a dip, a swim💦! I couldn’t tell if it [...]

Photo by Terry Matthews   This past week sent a warning: Winter in cottage country is not over! At the time of writing, the morning is bright and cloudless. Beautiful! The temp, though, is minus 18. We’re making ice! Bring your skates... Winter has not slowed us nor cold dulled our senses. Our market has [...]

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 [...]

Photo Credit: Basil Thomas on Unsplash Last week we mentioned the beginning of summer. At least that's what the calendar indicates ...the longest day. However the weather gods this week decided to play a few games. Two days ago we received 100 mm of rain. Yesterday our high was about 15C. It was interesting to note points [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]
