Buying Recreational Property in Muskoka

Thinking of buying a recreational property and not sure where to start? Confused over which town or lake might be most suitable for your family? Don’t worry, we have the skills, knowledge and experience to ensure that your waterfront buying experience is stress free from start to finish. Some very important things to consider when buying a waterfront property include:

  • What size of lake is most suitable for my needs?
  • Are you looking for big lake boating or the typical Algonquin experience of paddling peacefully in a canoe without the noise of motorboats or jetskis?
  • How close do I want to be to a town center and which geographical area or areas would be suitable; Huntsville, Lake of Bays, Almaguin Highlands, Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, Dorset etc?
  • What type of property am I looking for, private with acreage or smaller and more manageable?
  • Is the shore road allowance open or closed? Is the septic system in good working order?
  • Is there a dug well, drilled well or is the water coming from the lake or river?
  • Is the property accessible year round or is it a seasonal property?

These are only a few of the many items of concern when buying a recreational property. We know the Huntsville, Lake of Bays and Almaguin Highlands regions better than anyone else and look forward to helping you find your piece of paradise.

Prices can vary greatly depending on lake and location. You may pay quite a lot more for a property on Lake of Bays than you would on a smaller lake like Waseosa, Fox or Harp. Please feel free to contact us so we can help you determine the answers to the questions above and get you focused in the right direction.
