Bracebridge Area Information

Bracebridge is a town in southeast Ontario, just 1 hour and 30 minutes north of Toronto.

Covering more than 150,000 acres, the city limits incorporate vast areas of forests and lakes within Ontario’s famed Cottage Country.

Bracebridge is also the administrative seat for the Muskoka District Municipality, which includes a number of destination towns around Lake Muskoka. Bracebridge itself is built on the Muskoka River and shares a significant portion of its western boundary with Lake Muskoka, as well as incorporating some islands on the lake itself, most notably Browning Island.

A waterfall on the Muskoka River formed part of the town’s reason for existing, providing an abundant source of mechanical energy for local industry. The rivers and lakes also established Bracebridge as a local travel and transport hub. Now, the bridge and dam that traverse the river are local landmarks and scenic attractions as well.

The borders of Bracebridge incorporate a number of other small villages and settlements, including Clear Lake, Falkenburg Station, Fraserburg, Germania, Lakewood, Matthiasville, Purbrook, Rocksborough, Springdale Park, Stoneleigh, Uffington, and Vankoughnet.

Major transport to Bracebridge is via Highway 11, which runs north to south, connecting the area to Toronto and North Bay on Lake Nipissing. Other routes include District Road 117 and Highway 118 running east towards Ottawa.

Bracebridge Real Estate

Most of the Bracebridge real estate is typical of the Ontario Cottage Country property market, including a variety of cabin, cottage, and coastal appropriate styles.

There are also a number of resort-style condos, built within tasteful shingle-style, multi-unit buildings that fit the landscape and feel of the area well. Prospective buyers can often buy these in the form of shared-ownership, helping to split the cost and for added convenience if they’re only intended for holiday use.

Other interesting Bracebridge homes for sale include small prefab cottages, complete with spacious outdoor decks and well-appointed interiors. These can be customized and placed on an empty lot of your choice.

The abundance of land in the area makes empty plots an attractive choice for adventurous or picky buyers. Build the lakeside cottage or forest retreat of your dreams here, always close by to the amenities and conveniences of Bracebridge itself.
