With the weather cooling off in the morning hours, the hiking weather is just about perfect right now! Although there too many beautiful hikes in Muskoka to name in one post, we have chosen our favourite five, descriptions and photos courtesy of the Township of Muskoka Lakes.
The Fall Colours, the smell of tangy cranberries in the air, and crafters from all over northern Ontario are only a few of the things you will experience on this great day trip to the Bala Cranberry Festival.
Enjoy the wagon ride tour as you learn and watch how cranberries are harvested. Spend a little time shopping in the Cranberry store.
Now you are in for a treat as we head downtown to take in all that the festival has to offer.
Friday is seniors day, Sunday is family day and Saturday is for everyone! Shopping, dining, samples, and snacks. Petting zoo, live entertainment, and a shuttle bus to get around. So much to do, so much to see.
The entirely volunteer-run event brings family fun to the area by way of food, drinks, craft markets, musical acts, and more with funds being donated to carefully selected local charities and community programs. Grab your friends and family and check out the festival this year!
“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!

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.

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!!!!!!
