Carefully, oh so carefully, we have been working. In the past couple of weeks we've had 5 offers accepted. Two of our listings have sold and we have successfully negotiated deals for 3 buyers. Real estate in the time of COVID is different, but it's still active. We've also had enquiries from people who did [...]

  Although we've been quiet for a while, Muskoka, Haliburton and Parry Sound are still here! Trees are budding, spring flowers have been blooming in gardens and yesterday we saw dogtooth violets in the bush. It won't be long before was see a carpet of trilliums! This year ice went out early, by about a [...]

MarketWATCHMuskoka: 29 February 2020 March is coming in and we've had a good taste of winter. Muskoka's Festivals of Winter have pretty much run their course. Not like the GTA or Golden Horseshoe, we really have snow here. Someone came up the other day to look at property in sneakers. It doesn't work so well [...]

Photo Credit: Timothy Joseph Elzinga of North Bay MarketWATCH Muskoka: November 2019 Ice making. Unusual for this time of year, however Mother Nature has thrown us a curve. All across cottage country we see vestiges of winter. Normally we think of vestiges as 'leavings' but in this case these leavings are signs of things yet [...]

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 [...]

Season of mellow fruitfulness. In these parts a few tomatoes still cling to the vine, pumpkins mound yellow in the garden and, as you saw last week, cranberries glow red in the bog. Fall colours are at their peak and fall fruits are lush and plump. Talking about plump, you should see turkeys in Muskoka! [...]

The North woods. The North woods have attracted artists with their magnificent solitude for more than a century. Tom Thompson is celebrated in Huntsville. The Group of Seven changed Canadian art in the 1920's and their influence is still felt today. Cottage Country, and Muskoka in particular, is a haven for those driven by artistic [...]

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 [...]

Balance. Balance is something we seem to need in our lives. There's work/life balance many of us strive to achieve (getting away to the lake helps). As we age, balance becomes an ever-increasing issue. Losing core strength increases chances of falling. Responding to challenging situations takes balance. Get a little off-balance and people can be [...]

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 [...]
