Is Internet at your Muskoka cottage frustrating you? Join the club! I can't tell you how often I hear my Lake Joseph neighbours complain about the speed (or lack thereof) of their internet service. Keep in mind, we are in cottage country paradise, not a bustling high tech metropolitan area. Unless you are on a working vacation I recommend unplugging and unwinding.

There are times when we need internet and times when we crave it. Especially ...

Muskoka's North Lake Joseph
July 20, 2017
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.

When discussing cottage property with my clients the most ...

Over the years we’ve had many questions presented to us. “How can you ...
