MarketWATCH Muskoka: 14 December 2018

 

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful’… goes the song. The part that goes ‘let it snow, let it snow, let it snow’ has rung true. Muskoka and the rest of cottage country is covered in a blanket of white. Some of it more than 40cm deep!

At the beginning of winter (not officially starting for another week) snow and ice are welcomed by many. The new season holds promise of winter sports, warm evenings by the fire and postcard scenes of snow laden boughs. The picture we have of Bracebridge Falls says it all. The season is upon us! ‘Chestnuts roasting by an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose’.

We think warmly of special friends – especially those in far away places and those who have gone, remaining only in our hearts. The Christmas season, more than most celebrations, seems to be a time of memories and for renewing friendships. It’s also a time for making new memories. We wish you the happiest of Christmases with happy memories, new and old.

For us, it’s amazing to think we’re still being asked to see waterfront property. With the heavy snow coverage and cold nights, ice and snow are here to stay. It’s impossible to see the land and the waterfront? In many cases you can’t find it. Despite the warning we had snow, someone came to walk property in loafers! Fortunately they had a sense of humour and enjoyed sliding down the hill, laughing most of the way. The soaker at the end, though was a shock. It’s a fun memory to laugh about!

There are properties coming to market and selling. If you’re coming to Muskoka, bundle up. There’s no snow expected for a week. But that can change in a second.

Here’s what’s happened since we last talked…
