The Lakes & Communities


In Muskoka there are 3 big lakes: Lake Joseph, Lake Rosseau and Lake Muskoka.  All three lakes are connected to different communities and offer many different recreational pursuits. Boating is by far the most popular lake activity, however non-motorized use has accelerated with the advent of paddle boards. The lakes allow for seasonal swimming as the temperature rises to approximately +28 C (82 F). All three lakes are an approximate 2 hour drive from Toronto. The “Big Three” offer some of the world’s finest cottages, most pristine shorelines and breathtaking vistas. While most cottages are accessible by land, some are island escapes. Either way, a buyer should view a home or cottage from the water prior to purchasing.  Do some research on the lakes and communities by clicking below to determine which ones are right for you.
