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. [...]

Photo courtesy of Peter Hermann Wooden boats. There was a time when all pleasurecraft were made of wood: runabouts, sedans (fixed tops), cabin cruisers. Name it and it was in wood. For a small market, Muskoka had a lot of boat builders. Part of the reason was location… it was hard to get to Muskoka. [...]

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 [...]

Dog days of summer. Named for the brightest star in the summer sky, Sirius. It’s found in Canis Major, the dog constellation. The star has little to do with dogs lazing around in the sun... Although when it comes to dock time, lazing around in the sun is pretty nice - especially with an ice [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 23 June 2022 Summer steamed in and made itself comfortable, breaking a few records as it did so. Along the way, it effectively diminished the mosquito population. Unexpectedly, summer’s first weekend may be without the ‘Muskoka wave’, a by product of swatting the pesky critters away. Once again, people are congregating, enjoying sights [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 16 June 2022 Summer’s languid pace has already come to cottage country. Dock time is approaching full swing. As we head towards the official beginning of summer and the longest day of the year, sunset is firmly in the northwest. Water temps are not yet risen to spending much more than a quick [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 9 June 2022 Turn, turn, turn… to everything there is a season. This is our 20th year selling Muskoka. We’ve mapped cycles of waterfront sales, watched waterfront intently and made prognostications over the years. Analysis is part of who we are. We have to know the market. We started relating cottage activity to [...]

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 [...]

  Last weekend opened up the lakes. Some bays still had ice which had blown in. But for the most part, the water was open. We saw boats, both motorized and people powered, 2 paddle boards, several pwc’s and one skier (in a wet suit). On top of that, several folk we know had their [...]

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, [...]
