MarketWATCH Muskoka: 15 November 2017

Santa came to Bala last week and he’s coming to Port Carling this weekend, heading to Bracebridge on December 3rd, with Gravenhurst and Huntsville yet to be visited. Bala’s famed Trek to Bethlehem is in another couple of weeks. If you’ve never experienced it, take your children and grandchildren…it’s a wonderful way to give an historic perspective to Christmas.

Muskoka is resonating with the sounds and sights of this magical time of year. The Christmas train is on its way…

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 27 September 2017

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

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!

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 13 September 2017

September brings the Fall Studio Tour to Muskoka. We celebrate artists and artisans, people of creativity and talent who live and create here. Quite special to have so many gifted people so close. The Tour, which takes place in Spring and Fall is a real eye opener and definitely worth doing.

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 6 September 2017
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!

Summer pastime!

a little r&r this weekend

a little r&r this weekend

Even though it’s a shortened week with Canada Day, now’s a good time to kick back, let the gentle breezes blow and listen to gentle lapping on the shore of Townsend Bay, Lake Joseph. Summer’s here!

Misty layers

Sitting on the covered porch, listening to rain on the roof is one of life’s great pleasures. It de-compresses everything. Combine that with a 2 km view across Foot’s Bay, highlighting layers of islands on the the one hand and, a Muskoka dark one in the other, you’re pretty close to heaven!

Lake Joseph boathouse

April 28, 2013 in Big 3, boathouse, Joseph, Muskoka

This may look serene. Inside this beautiful Lake Joseph boathouse all kind of stuff left on the docks over winter is now sodden. Chairs are wet, some tools are under water but at least boats are still in their slings. On the Muskoka River, where the water is considerably higher, there are some boathouses where boats have been lifted from their slings, others jammed against the ceiling, couches sunk and personal possessions destroyed. It’s a tough way to begin the season. Some will rethink the water level entertainment room concept we’ve seen developing in boathouses lately.

Precise ice

March 22, 2013 in ice, Joseph, Muskoka, winter

We have a friend on Lake Joseph. He’s a Professional Engineer. Nice guy. Very analytical and quite precise. A ‘hands on’ kind of guy. Definitely not what you would call OCD, but particular. He’s an engineer afterall. So it wasn’t all that suprising to see, when we went to his place on the lake, his icicles are perfectly spaced and calibrated in length. Now that’s Engineering!Precision Engineering

Spring Detour

March 20, 2013 in Joseph, Lakes, Muskoka, Muskoka, Port Carling, Rosseau, snow, spring

First day of spring and with it almost 15 cm of snow and a little excitement too. A fuel transport jackknifed in the centre of Port Carling, spilling some of its load. The main road was closed for hours whiloe Hazmat did the cleanup. People travelling to Glen Orchard, Bala and Lake Joseph from Bracebridge had to detour – not just around the block. Around a lake – either Lake Muskoka or Lake Rosseau – adding at least 40 km to the journey. Some people didn’t get to work and kids travelling to highschool got the day off. Welcome to spring!First Day of Spring
