Ken Fowler Enterprises Sells Village of Minett
Interests to Mitch Goldhar

We are pleased to advise that Ken Fowler Enterprises Ltd., the current owner of Cleveland’s House and surrounding area, has entered into an agreement to sell their interests in the Village of Minett to a private company controlled by Mitch Goldhar, a successful Canadian businessman and environmentally concerned, Lake Rosseau cottager. The transaction, which will close shortly, is believed to involve the sale of;

  • Approximately 1200 acres of land, including a substantial shoreline in and around the Minett area
  • Cleveland’s House
  • The Rock golf course
  • Wallace Bay Marina

The transaction does not include the minority interest that Ken Fowler Enterprises holds in Legacy Cottages (formerly Lakeside Lodge).

MLA View on the Transaction

This transaction gives us some reason for optimism that the area will be developed in a less impactful way than is permitted under the Official Plan or as earlier depicted in other schemes we have seen from previous proposals. We will keep you informed once the transaction closes and we learn more about proposed plans for the area.

As many are aware, the District of Muskoka has struck a Village of Minett Steering Committee to provide input to elected officials on a development plan for the area. We sincerely hope that a more environmentally friendly ownership group, combined with a fresh look by the Steering Committee will result in a long-term development plan that can be supported by all politicians and stakeholders, including the MLA.

If you have not yet had a chance to do so, please renew your MLA membership for 2019. A strong and united Muskoka community is critical to ensuring that our collective voice is heard.

May we also take this opportunity to wish all members a safe and happy holiday season.

Yours sincerely,

Muskoka Lakes Association
