Muskoka Region Real Estate

The Muskoka Lakes also know as Ontario Cottage Country are one of the most popular Canadian summer destinations for people from around the world.   Driving north there is a long curve and hill on highway 11 that passes between huge granite outcroppings  letting you know you have arrived “home” in Muskoka. 

Gravenhurst, the first of the lovely communities on the south end of Lake Muskoka is the home of the early steamships and of the beautiful mahogany wooden boats that are still a thrill to see out for a cruise on the big lakes.  Pleasure craft and the steamships travel up through the island dotted lakes passing a mix of gorgeous summer cottages and grand old boat houses of days gone by.  New winterized lake homes allow residents to partake in this gorgeous region year round. 

The landscape becomes more rugged as you travel further north to picturesque Lake Rosseau at Port Carling. Further north is Lake Joseph, the least populated of the large three lake system and just as beautiful.  There are marinas, lodges, world class resorts, lakeside villages of Bala, Windermere, and Rosseau to name a few.  Golf, restaurants and even a small airport at Gravenhurst offer convenience and memories. Travel north past the town of Bracebridge located on the Muskoka River, to an area of fine mid sized lakes that have developed over the years into great cottage destinations such as Skeleton and Three Mile. Huntsville, in north Muskoka has a great chain of four large lakes;  Vernon, Fairy, Peninsula, and Mary Lake all connected via the Muskoka River creating 40 miles of boating. These lakes have great proximity to Huntsville by car or by boat making them popular for cottaging and year round living.  Just east of Peninsula Lake is the renowned Lake of Bays with its historic Bigwin Inn, golf course, and villages of Dwight, Dorset and Baysville on its shores. Summer art and music festivals, regattas, world class athletic events, and winter sports abound in Muskoka year round nowadays making it one of Canada’s most popular year round destinations with something to satisfy everyone!
