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: 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 [...]

Photo Credit: @philevis via Muskoka Tourism MarketWATCH Muskoka: 15 February 2019 This week has confirmed winter is here. Even the deer out my window are in the white stuff up past their knees. It's fun to see them leaping through the snow... I'm waiting to see one roll over with its legs in the air. [...]

Lake effect. Living in cottage country, lake effect has lots of meaning. Lake effect has impact on land value. Lake effect has impact on recreational activity. Lake effect has influence on how you feel, just sitting and watching waves - whether they're sparkling in the sun or crashing on the shore. Even the lake effect [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: Halloween Edition   Icing sugar is sweet. Seeing Muskoka sprinkled white this past weekend was truly a sweet introduction to the coming season. Sure, the confection has gone in one way. It's pretty clear, though, that all across cottage country, in its towns and villages, ghouls, goblins and werewolves have been circulating with [...]

If you look closely, snow might be visible in valleys and shady spots. For the most part, Muskoka is in spring! Forest floor is greening, wild leeks are showing their heads and the birds have one thing on their minds - and they're singing about it! Unlike previous springs, we have yet to see water [...]

March break is upon us in Ontario. A surprising number of people have decided to take their break in cottage country. Ice conditions are as good as they have been for years. Snow cover is light and it's easy to get around. Snow machiners aren't so happy and cross-country skiing certainly is not a Muskoka [...]
