I was luck enough as a child to spend my summers in Muskoka and my children and grandchildren have also enjoyed this experience. Our old cottage was torn down 5 years ago and now we enjoy all the modern conveniences with central air in a perfect location. My husband and I enjoyed designing our home and spend our spare time gardening boating and swimming. There is always time for golf. We enjoy taking our dog Brandy for numerous interesting walks and she keeps us active. In the evenings we take time to enjoy our coffee in front of the fire or sitting on the dock watching the sun go down
