SOLD – Upgraded Cottage
Recently upgraded and mostly furnished, this executive 4 season island cottage of 1700 square feet features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, stone fireplace, and extensive decking. Beautiful granite walkways, steps and landscaping lead you to expansive open lake views. Additionally, note the single slip boathouse with sundeck plus attached single slip boat-port as well as a Bunkie. It has been impeccably maintained without question. Enjoy easy access to the extensive walking trails of the Eilean Gowan Island Nature Preserve. Only a short boat ride to one of to 3 nearby marinas, this 2 acre property with 185′ of frontage is a fraction of the cost of a comparable mainland cottage. The lighthouse in the lake belongs to this property.
You definitely get more value for your cottage-buying dollar once you ditch the road. Generally you will see larger lot sizes and more privacy. Owning a cottage on an island is at first an adventure. Eventually it becomes a lifestyle you adapt to and grow to love. The romantic vision of boating off to your own retreat becomes the goal each weekend and you really appreciate the lower taxes as well!

“Jim and Iris Gardiner were both amazing to deal with. A truly professional team. They shared a great deal of knowledge with us and really shed important light regarding potential Island Cottage ownership – all the pros and cons. Not only did they sell our existing cottage in 24 hours for much higher than our asking price they helped us find our new slice of paradise on Lake Muskoka in a very tight market. We are thrilled with our new cottage and love being on Eilean Gowan Island! We would highly recommend either Jim or Iris for any of your Real Estate needs!”J & D – Sold on Echo Lake and bought on Lake Muskoka
Mike Taylor was a great find for us. Mike was accessible and flexible with showings, visits, the house inspection and all of the steps involved in closing a sale. Following our closing Mike has continued to be a valuable source of information providing us with contacts for insurance, plumbing and electricians among other things.S & D – Muskoka River, Port Sydney
Jim did me a favor 20 years ago and I wanted to return the favor – I approached him and Iris at the cottage show and, even though I already had a real estate agent, he recommended a cottage property that I purchased and enjoyed for those 20 years. I therefore, tracked him down and had him be our agent in selling that property. Our priority was to find new owners that would be friendly and fit in well with the neighbors and Jim and Iris found the perfect couple Jim and Iris made the entire sale most enjoyable. The experience was so smooth and enjoyable that the sellers, the buyers and the real estate agents all got together for supper the following summer at our old cottage!K & L – Lake Muskoka
As first time cottage buyers but no strangers to purchasing property, we were fortunate to find Mike Taylor. We purchased through him in 2016 and would gladly again. Honest, great local knowledge and mindful of the nuances of financing, our experience with this agent was golden. Hardworking and always available, Mike made our experience of this purchase so much easier. A great job and comes with the highest recommendation” Thank you AgainS & C – Buck Lake, Huntsville
It is with great pleasure and appreciation for me to recommend the services of Jim Gardiner and the entire Gardiner Team. Jim’s awareness of community by-laws and market related activities extracted incremental value for us when we were finalizing the purchasing agreement.JB – Mirror Lake
