Muskoka Boathouses, Eye Candy on the Lakes

One of the key attributes of Muskoka are the numerous boathouses nestled in on the shorelines. I don’t believe there is anything else like this in the world.  They can range from little one slip shacks to gigantic mansions with helicopter pads. Many of them offer a deep and interesting history. Whether its a summer home to a previous US President, Hollywood movie star, designs by a famous architects or a property that dates back to the 1800’s they are all interesting to see.

People are always asking to see more of these boathouses so I will make an attempt to include them as I travel throughout the lakes.

    Yesterday your eye candy had a flurry of snow! It has been a bit chilly. It is amazing what these places can stand from extreme heat to extreme winter cold.

    Now that’s what I call a boathouse! We don’t have many boathouse up near me, but I always admire them when I come across them. Back in the 1920s, there was a large boathouse with an apartment above it on our island. One spring the ice ripped it out though. So now all that’s left is the rock cribbing and the seats from the 30 foot long launch that was stored in the boathouse when it wasn’t being used for bootlegging. I wish that we had pictures of it.

    Interesting shot … but I’m kinda confused by the light filters and other peripheral ‘technique’ you’ve used in the image … Can you give techy detail? ie. camaera used, filters used, and/or photoshop applied … Just kinda curious …
