Cottage Country Real Estate
Welcome to www.cottages-forsale.com - Your source for buying or selling cottages, lots and homes while providing the best in real estate information. We're just 150 kilometers north of Toronto, the land and lifestyles change, for the better.
South Muskoka is the southern tip of the Canadian Shield, a land of rock, pine, and deep clean water. It extends east from Port Severn on Georgian Bay, through Little Lake and Gloucester Pool, over the famous Big Chute Marine Railway, along the Trent Severn and Severn Falls to Swift Rapids. It goes north a bit to take in Six Mile Lake, the other gem in South Muskoka’s crown.
The area offers everything you would expect from Muskoka, such as great fishing, boating, and abundant wildlife; without the long drive, and higher prices, found further north. It also offers easier access to a greater number of services and facilities.
South Muskoka is easy to get to. You get on Highway 400 North in Toronto and you get off it in South Muskoka. It’s as simple as that. The road is four lanes all the way and a pleasant drive, particularly, when you get into the rolling farm country north of Barrie.
Once you’re off the multi-lane, you’re in a different world, which is more tranquil, natural, and beautiful – a little friendlier too – than the one you have left behind. This is a world where your boat or your boots can take the place of your car.
