Muskoka's North Lake Joseph

Cottaging in Muskoka can take on different forms. Some are drawn to Muskoka for its many amenties and activities. Others are lured and lulled by the peace, tranquility and true escape from city life. If you fall into the latter category, you'll find yourself looking for a larger parcel of land with wider frontage. Larger waterfront properties usually translate into greater privacy. If you really want a peaceful retreat, far away from boat traffic, road noise and the eyes of neighbours you can find this in the northern half of Lake Joseph. 

When discussing cottage property with my clients the most frequent remark I hear is - but it's so far away. While. It's really not. 

Just a two hour and fifteen minute drive from Toronto via the safest route to Muskoka, Hwy 400, will place you at this outstanding location at the north end of Lake Joseph.

Benefits of North Lake Joe

Larger frontage and acreage - Estate sized lots - because north Lake Joseph was one of the last areas to be developed, after Lakes Muskoka and Rosseau, planning acts were created to ensure larger parcels of waterfront properties 

Less congestion - fewer visible and audible neighbouring cottages directly translate to increased privacy

Less boat traffic - many properties at the norht end of Lake Joseph benefit from a reduced amount of boats passing by which adds to the peace and tranquility of cottage life 

Crystal clear lake waters - Lake Joseph is a spring fed lake which flows into Rosseau followed by Muskoka - at the north end of Lake Joseph is at the top of the chain 

This Lake Joseph listing stands out in my mind as one that truly "ticks all the boxes". Situated on an estate sized lot, tucked away from boat traffic and road noise this lovely family cottage is well priced for today's market and offers many luxuries.
