We strongly support and practice all government guidelines for stopping the spread of COVID-19. We suggest you do also.
Most of us don’t give much thought to our waste management systems at the cottage – unless they stop working! Yet these systems are crucial to the maintenance of our water quality and the purity of the lakes and rivers that we enjoy so much.
Signs That Your Septic System is in Trouble:
•Drains or toilets are backed up or running slowly
•Sogginess in the ground around the septic tank or leaching bed
•Unusually green or thick grass growing in or around the leaching bed
•Significant algae growth in or around nearby lakes or waterbodies
•High levels of nitrates, bacteria or other contaminants in well water
The Muskoka Watershed Council has produced an excellent brochure dealing with the maintenance of your septic, to keep it functioning at an optimal level and prolong its life.

“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
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
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
Just want to tell you that you did a fine job for me on the cottage sale on Lake Muskoka. The sale has removed a huge load from my shoulders. Iris, just a note to thank you again. Money is in the bank!!!!!!BJ – Lake Muskoka
