First time offered since it was built. This wonderful, good-boned Eilean Gowan Island retreat boasts a fabulous level shoreline with some rock features, waterside deck, large dock (which requires repair). Beautiful S/W view and amazing privacy. The 1000 sq.ft. cottage has 2 bedrooms and can easily be converted back to 3 bedrooms. The cottage has been used in the winter in the past, but not for a very long time.
So why would someone want to own a cottage on an island? Island cottaging holds a certain romance. As soon as you ditch the road, you feel more free. Island cottages tend to have larger lots than their mainland counterparts, offering more privacy and better value. Eilean Gowan Island also has something special – an interior nature preserve. There was a good article about it some years back in the Globe and Mail that you can read here: https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/lawyer-fights-for-wildlifes-place-in-the-sun/article744470/

Jim was great to work with. He was able to identify a property that came onto the market that was the perfect fit. He was patient, informative and accommodating. I would recommend Jim to my friends looking for a cottage or home in Muskoka.JC – Lake Muskoka cottage buyer
“Thank you for the memorable sales and closing experience of finding the cottage of our dreams. A perfect fit for our needs.”I & E – Lake Muskoka cottage buyers
“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
