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 [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 12 May 2022 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 [...]

  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, [...]

Photo by Tim Mossholder on Unsplash The first full week of July. Almost normal. Renters are in place, lakes are busy, shops are open and patios are appropriately distanced. What’s different? Camps are closed and remain quiet. Caterpillars aren’t noisy either, but they are certainly eating their way through the canopy. Underfoot they are slippery. [...]

There was an influx of new residents throughout cottage country. This year as we begin to open up and feel more confident, masking and distancing feel less of an [...]
