Welcome,

The 2017 Muskoka Cottage selling season is upon us!

It's an early Spring; the lakes are open and the first boaters are out on the water. There have been early sales on all three of the Big Lakes as well as on the smaller lakes.

We prefer to be 'Hands On' realtors. Rather than simply viewing the listings of new properties on a computer screen, we are out on the lakes most days previewing any and all cottage properties as they come on the market to gain a better perspective to serve your interests. We both were born and raised in Muskoka and can count our Muskoka Real Estate experience in decades not years.

Muskoka Cottage Properties continue to be a strong marketplace.

If you are looking for Muskoka Realtors who will listen to you and dig deep to find the right Muskoka Cottage property, give us a call. We're always available to provide personal and professional services to our buyer and seller clients. Call now 705-646-3116

Here’s What Our  Muskoka Cottage Clients Are Saying

Why Muskoka?


History

People seeking clean fresh water and air have been coming to Muskoka since the mid 1800’s.  Originally promoted by the British with land grants for those hardy enough to endure the harsh winters and land clearing requirements. The trek from York (Toronto) was a several day journey and included a combination of stage coaches on corduroy roads, horse or oxen powered ferries and miles of  foot travel.  In 1875 a rail line was completed to Gravenhurst which opened up Muskoka to the world and the first steamship called the Wenonah which had been launched in 1866.  The Muskoka Navigation Company then added several steamships to its fleet; most of which have sank, burned or de-commissioned. In 1958 the surviving two steamships the RMS Segwun and RMS Sagamo ceased their regular services.  The Sagamo burned to the hull while being re-furbished as a floating historical restaurant. The Segwun was restored to today's safety standards and continues to ply the waters. One of only a few steam powered ships in the world.  During those early years wealthy Canadians and Americans built summer getaways and their families would spend the entire summer season enjoying Muskoka.  Many of these families still own property on the lakes but their commute is much easier.


Today

 Travel to and around Muskoka is easy with an international airport (YQA) and  2 - 4 lane highways.  The water and the forests are still the main attraction on all the lakes.  There are approximately 7,000 recreational properties on the 3 big lakes; Lake Muskoka, Lake Rosseau and Lake Joseph. Few places in the world duplicate its natural beauty, peacefulness and accessibility.
