Last week we were talking about making waves, riding them and even getting air. By coincidence, yesterday we were working with a guy who likes air so much he kite boards. We don't often get big wind here, but we've seen kite boarders in other places take air 30' or more. The adrenaline of watching [...]

Muskoka and summer go together. Cottages, boating and S'mores. It's the time of year when family and friends gather by the lake. A very Canadian tradition! Winter's so long, we celebrate summer in unforgettable ways. Ask anyone who grew up cottaging - whether rented or owned - and summer is a main part of memory [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: March 20, 2019 The last couple of weeks have cleared snow from sidewalks, driveways and lawns in most of the Golden Horseshoe. We were there on Sunday and heard robins singing.

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 12 March 2019 There's an old saying about March "In like a lion, out like a lamb" the reverse is also true. In essence it's saying March will begin or end with a storm. We've certainly had lots of storms lately, so another won't be a surprise. A couple of weeks ago the [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: Halloween Edition   Icing sugar is sweet. Seeing Muskoka sprinkled white this past weekend was truly a sweet introduction to the coming season.
