MarketWATCH Muskoka: 16 June 2022 Summer’s languid pace has already come to cottage country. Dock time is approaching full swing.

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 [...]

Photo by Kristopher Roller on Unsplash   Before our next MarketWatch we will have marked our longest day of the year and formal entry into summer. The solstice.

With temps in the high 20's and humidity taking the 'feel' of the day even higher, this Labour Day's experience in Muskoka was more like mid-summer. In some parts even the lake wasn't all that refreshing. Swimming from the boat in the deep was the way to go if you wanted to cool off. Off [...]

It's here! The last long weekend of the summer. We have a warm week leading up to it too! In fact, records are being set as we speak. Night time temperatures in Muskoka are staying warm.

As we approach fall in Muskoka, the pace of play changes. Think languid. Think reflective. Think art. For 40 years the Fall studio tour has been a highlight for those who live here and those who want to. The Artistic community in cottage country has grown over the years.

We know the forest is dry. A fire ban is in effect. One day last week we could smell the smoke from Parry Sound 33 an 11,000 hectare burn north and west of Parry Sound more than 150 kms away. On the upside, smoke haze leads to great sunsets. We understand, too, that forest fires [...]
