MarketWATCH Muskoka: 4 October 2017 Here we are! Thanksgiving is upon us. Turkey time. Some cottagers are using this weekend as the time to get ready for winter, clearing the water lines, installing anti-freeze in reservoirs, putting bubblers in the water and weights on dock decks. Others we know are putting sand and salt barrels at strategic points in their lane ways. You never know when a hill needs to be sanded for winter use. At the time of writing, the day is sunny. Sky is clear and some of us are wearing shorts! Autumn this year has been a blessing! Here's hoping it continues. There are a number of serious buyers making their way north over the next week and walking in the sun is a tad more pleasant than walking in the rain!

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 27 September 2017

September 27, 2017 in Bracebridge, Joseph, Muskoka, Muskoka, Port Carling, Rosseau

This past week has been a gift. We spent more time on the water than we have all summer. Weather has been very cooperative. Balmy breezes, gentle waves and rising temperature of the lake has made being waterbound truly enjoyable. Very few boats too, although Monday evening found the lake to be busier than it was on the weekend. Looking across to the beaches, they were busy too with kids from after school. What a life! We know the weather's about to change. It has to change. In the meantime, Muskoka is in its glory. Leaves are testing their fall colours, bugs have decided they've had enough and it's warm! Summer in September. Nice.

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 20 September 2017

September 20, 2017 in Bala, Big 3, Bracebridge, Cottage, Gravenhurst, Joseph, Muskoka, Muskoka, Port Carling, Rosseau

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 20 September 2017 Summer and September this year are synonymous. Who would've thought? The lake is warm, as are the evenings. The days? Summer like. Many of us think September is THE BEST month in Muskoka. This year it's even better! The Fall Studio Tour begins this weekend. Maybe this year it will be the first Summer Studio Tour. Regardless, the tour is always interesting, whether shopping for that special piece, thinking about Muskoka decorations for a festive table or just hoping to be inspired by something that catches your eye. The Tour is all of that and then some, carvings, metalwork, sculpture, paintings, fabrics ...just about everything you could imagine. If you plan to go, drop by the Bracebridge Farmers' Market at the same time. You'll be glad you did. On the cottage side of things, activity has picked up - both in terms of properties coming to market and properties selling. We're busy. Plan ahead. Some of us already have appointments for the weekend. Don't be disappointed!

If you listen to the news, you'd think summer is over. Not so. We are embarking on what many people think is the finest part of the season in Muskoka. September.With it comes warm, sunny days, cool nights, no bugs and a peacefulness on the water that is hard to find in high season. The water's still warm, swimming's a pleasure and so is just sitting on the dock, enjoying nature. September enhances Muskoka as leaves turn to their golden and rusty hues. Somehow the sky seems bluer, it's definitely clearer and the reflection of the forest in the lake is brighter. September glows!
