Approaching the Kashe Lake cottage

Drift back in time to the 1940`s and you may begin to understand the Kahshe Lake cottage compound appearing in the distance. Such a private and level property is very rare. A three minute boat ride in a `new to you` boat has you arriving at a choice of docks, one a solid T out front, and the one around the point a classic.

The lot here is exceptionally level, with just a few Muskoka rock outcroppings.

Granite, pine and the cool, clear water of Kahshe Lake beckons. The cottage itself is a three season cottage, but with a lovely granite fireplace that was hand built over 70 years ago.

Some interesting facts about Kahshe Lake’s  name from Wikipedia:

The Indian word Kah-she-she-bog-a-mog is defined in a dictionary developed by early Jesuit missionaries and located in the archives in Ottawa. The morphemes break as follows: Ka-shesheb-agam-ag: ‘where there are-ducks-lake-place’, thus ‘Lake of Many Ducks’; compare Ojibwe jishib ‘duck’; the following are spurious (Carl Masthay, St. Louis, 2009): Kah-Lake, She-Many, Bog-Ducks,a-and, Mog or Maug-Loons, therefore Lake of Many Many Ducks and Loons (researched by Ken Little). Other people swear that it means Lake of Many Islands or “Lake of Healing Waters”. Yet others, especially those with powerful motor boats, nickname it Lake of Many Rocks and “The Minefield”. The lake’s west end is shallow while the east side is deep, yet both areas have many shallow rock hazards with no marker buoys that just seem to appear “out of nowhere” as the waterways are navigated. There is a section in the middle of the lake that is so rugged that if marked with sonar, it appears as the pulses of a heart beat on a pulse reader. These many distinct areas in the lake provide for easy fish locating for avid fishermen.

It is notable that there is a public beach off North Kahshe Lake Road. The beach is a gathering point for residents and cottagers. There are public boating docks and a boat launch. The lake has been featured on several fishing shows, it has also been featured on television, most notably in a Tim Hortons commercial. There are many organized events in and around the lake, particularly Kahshe lake regatta, Several barn dances, End of Summer labour day concert, and Rockhaven Inn craft sale.

Gull Lake, Miles of Beautiful Boating

We were out on Gull Lake today. The early heat wave blown away by crisp north westerlies. Thanks to Dave and Sandra who have spent many happy years on Gull Lake; now selling their Gull Lake home.

I had no idea that there was anywhere near this much boating on scenic Gull Lake. Heading south east takes you to a cut, through which you discover the equally beautiful Silver Lake. There are miles and miles of open water as well as small coves and granite rock faces. Perfect for power-boat cruises as well as kayaks and canoes.

Gull Lake narrows to admit you to Silver Lake

Some of the waters from Kahshe Lake run to Silver Lake, then to Gull Lake and then through the Hoc Roc river into Lake Muskoka.

Gull Lake has lots of space for water sports of all types, or just for those big views.

We saw so many gorgeous rock faces dropping straight into blue water, and made mental notes of where to return.

Granite cliffs on south Gull Lake

There are cottages dotted up and down Gull and Silver Lakes. We heard many stories of the history of some of these cottages and Gull Lake itself. One is the story of Dead Horse Island; we wonder if you know this story…

Cottagers have been enjoying Gull Lake since the 1800’s.
