A new cottage in Muskoka… -Building lot sold on Sparrow Lake’s Deep Bay

We sold a wonderful, almost 3 acre building lot on Sparrow Lake’s Deep Bay just a couple of days ago. This lot has almost 300 ft of waterfront, and Deep Bay is a beautiful part of Sparrow Lake.

When I was a kid, Deep Bay was a fish sanctuary. We would get a close as you could to the entrance and figure the bay was so thick with fish that they would be spilling out and onto our baits. Never really caught anything much that way though.

The new owners are planning to build in the next few years.

Sparrow Lake cottage

We have quite a few fractional listings on Sparrow Lake, both at the Cottages at Port Stanton and at Tory’s Landing. We just sold a beautiful, rugged, Muskoka building lot on Deep Bay, and a cottage on McLean Bay.

Today we toured a wonderful private cottage on Sparrow Lake that we hope to list soon. On the way it was apparent that it was a great day on Sparrow and at Tory’s Landing as we passed the resort by boat.

Cottage owners like to relax on the docks at Tory’s Landing.

Muskoka Cottage Lake Joseph – good value

We’ve been reminding people for years that buildings come and go, but the property doesn’t. When viewing cottages for sale, people typically spend too much time in the buildings and not enough outside.

I saw one today that is good value. In a great neighbourhood of $2 million plus, yet it is priced at $825, 000; mostly because it is a small (1000ft2) cottage.

For this price, one can get south Lake Joseph, prestigious neighbourhood, SW exposure, level lot, pristine water and hard sand bottom.

Muskoka is “Ground Zero” for the invasive species Spiny Water Flea

I had the pleasure last night of attending a lecture presented by the Muskoka Watershed Council last night in Gravenhurst.

We take for granted, how ecosystems take care of themselves in such beautiful balance.  Who knew that ALL the water in Lake Muskoka goes through the stomachs of the native daphnia every 10 days. We obviously depend on these creatures to keep our waters clear. Throw in a European invader like the Spiny Water Flea and now the native Daphnia are in decline.

Fascinating lecture as always by Norm Yan, York University Professor. I am working on the video to post to YouTube on behalf of the Watershed Council. Also Cogeco – the local cable company recorded it for broadcast in the Muskoka area.
