Boat Access Properties for Sale in Muskoka | September 2018


  • +1

Blog by John & Bonnie Fincham, Brokers | September 20th, 2018


With the number of Muskoka cottage listings being very low people searching waterfront properties are setting their sites on alternatives. Boat access properties are not for everyone but they can be attractive for families who's needs and budgets are not aligned. There's a few things to keep in mind when pondering this option before you purchase;
  • Insurance is sometimes higher, it's a good idea to check with your broker
  • weather can make getting to or leaving your cottage a big challange
  • there's often a cost to docking on mainland so that number needs to be factored in.
  • not all water-acess properties have deeded parking / dockage
  • most are 3 season only
  • costs for constuction or renovations are much higher
  • septic pumping can be very expensive 
But on the positive side;

  • prices can be much lower compared to an equivalant drive-to cottage
  • many times they're much more private
  • with lower demand there is seldom bidding wars
