Lake Muskoka

One of the largest lakes in its namesake region of Muskoka, Lake Muskoka has a surface area of nearly 50 square miles, with lots of crags and inlets. This creates many opportunities for private, unique shorelines, so every property on Lake Muskoka is different. The waterfront cottages on Lake Muskoka are also close to many nearby towns, so residents are always just a hop away from towns and amenities, no matter what part of the lake they’re located on. Multiple islands also dot the surface of Lake Muskoka, creating more opportunities for incredible real estate opportunities.
