3 bedroom home circa 1916

The property features a lovely historic home in downtown Port Carling, on Mirror Lake. This home was built in 1916 and pulled across Mirror Lake in the winter of 1928 – well that’s the story as we heard it. But, here’s a fascinating update on the history of the house thanks to a book given to us by our friend Ian Turnbull of Port Carling.

From Indian River Tales, Compiled by: Anne Duke Judd (ISBN 0-9698716-4-3):
The Moving of Heart’s Content

The old Heart’s Content was built around 1916 at Indian point. In early spring, around 1928 it was put onto two scows, using horses and the high water to help.
Cribwork on the scows kept it level at the old elevation; the scows were borrowed from one of the lumber companies, and Alan Dixon was in charge of the operation.
One scow sprang a leak, and since there was no electrical power at the point, it had to be hand pumped all night. Art Duke and others took turns keeping the pump going.

The next day they set off across the river, but about halfway across Mirror Lake, the steering mechanism on the Vedette broke, and she had to be taken up to Port for repairs. The wind blew the skows and house down to Arcadia point. The center timber caught on trees along the river bank and pulled out – fortunately, the two outside timbers stayed secure and the house remained level.

A second time, the men attach the scows to the Vedette, and pulled their cargo close to its new site on the eastern shore. But because the boat could not tow it from the front, the lines had to be untied while the Vedette manoeuvered to the stern to push it in.

Again, the house got away, the wind blowing it ashore at Schreibers’. By the time it was securely tied at the proper place on the shore, daylight was gone. There was electricity on this side, but it was not very reliable then, so the electric pump was left running overnight.

The next morning, Heart’s Content was moved ashore, and lowered – one crib timber at a time – onto its site at the bottom of Silver Creek Hill.

Here it remained the home of Arthur and ‘Did’ Duke (nee Elizabeth McCulley) and their sons Thomas and Reay until 1948, when the couples retirement home was built. The sign still identifies that home, now the residence of Rev. Tom Duke and his wife Charlotte.

Tom’s main memory of the house moving is the disappointment he felt that having to go to school, and missed the excitement of the move.

We are happy to say that there will be a new family on Muldrew Lake. Particularly exciting to us is that this family is new to Canada, has never cottaged before, but really want to live a “classic Canadian lifestyle,” and they decided, what better way than to cottage in Muskoka.

More details on their beautiful property here.

Catharine is always happy to add the SOLD sticker. Bentley sneaked in to the photo.

Classic Muskoka Cottage & Boathouse; View From Above

We have a magnificent property listed at Pine Point on Lake Muskoka.

The key feature about this property is the land itself; the rare privacy afforded by 895 feet of Lake Muskoka frontage on this beautifully level point. Nevertheless, the buildings, specifically the boathouse, has found its way into a number of classic Muskoka books.

As an iconic Muskoka boathouse, the boathouse at Pine Point doesn’t dominate the scenery; it plays an important supporting role.

Iconic in summer.
Standing resolute to the winter cold and winds.

We wanted to feature all of it somehow; the boathouse, cottage and the truly wonderful property itself in our own way. So, up in a battery powered remote-controlled helicopter went a carefully mounted digital camera, and softly(whew) down it came with the following pictures on its memory card:

… beautiful!

NOW SOLD. Newly-built cottage on Sparrow Lake plus Boathouse listed at only $379,000!

This is an excellent way to start, or continue cottaging in Muskoka. There is simply no other property in all of Muskoka that comes close in terms of value for money.

View from the large sundeck on the boathouse

If you search MLS for a cottage and single-slip boathouse in Muskoka, you’ll discover prices range from $300,000 to well over $3,000,000. Of the properties available in the $300k range, this is the only one that is: not water access only, not on a river and not a tear down. This property is on Sparrow Lake, the closest of Muskoka’s lakes to Toronto, has south exposure, a single-slip wet boathouse with a sundeck on top AND a newly built cottage.

Brand new cottage, built by French’s.

Sparrow Lake connects via the Trent-Severn Waterway from Lake Ontario to Georgian Bay. The lake’s water, due to this waterway, is constantly flushed  – lake data here. Boating, swimming, fishing, water skiing and just enjoying the water are all fabulous.  The views on Sparrow are wonderful.

Once you become a Sparrow Lake cottager, one of the best activities for the many visitors you’ll have is to take them on an afternoon boat ride west, past some of the most beautiful rock and pine shores to Swift Rapids. The appeal after the gorgeous boat ride is the lock itself; the largest in the entire Trent-Severn system – looking down as boats enter the lock is a real crowd pleaser!

Joining the Sparrow Lake Association is a must. In addition to helping with the great work of the association, joining will quickly get you into the swing with a picnic, regatta and a great way to meet your fellow cottagers.

More photo’s of this property are below. Here’s the detailed listing, please contact us to see it.
