Lake Rosseau Boathouse

With the recent extreme temps I have been spending quite a bit of time on the water. While driving up the eastern side of Rosseau I spotted this interesting boathouse on a magnificent point of land.

Each and every cottage and boathouse in Muskoka has a story behind it. The family history, the architecture, who has owned it, etc. I don’t know anything about this one other than it being unique. More Eye Candy on the Lakes.

In: boathouses of muskoka, in and around muskoka ontario, on the water

    When I see places like this I always have the same few questions. Has this been in the family for multiple generations? What are the stories? What is the occupation of the owners? Can I have a tour? And, finally, when can I move in?
    Thank you again for sharing. I especially love the pics you take from your boat as these are the beautiful and interesting things I cannot see from the streets and roads. Until my annual visit in the fall I will continue to live vicariously through your camera lens.

    Hi Lindsay,
    I go by your boathouse all the time and I love it too. In fact if I didn’t have a great place already I would have considered it. I love that point of land and the views. I think Joe Quinn had it listed for a couple of seasons and was always surprised why it didn’t move quicker.

    Hello Linda and others,
    My grandfather (John Thwaites) bought the end of this point before there was a road. We spent every summer of our youth on the point along with close friends and relatives. Every rock, tree and crevice has a story. In 1986, my mother sold the land and it was divided up into 3 parcels of land by a developer. 2 of our cottages burnt down on the point and you will find lots of history a few inches under the soil. The new owners built this beautiful boathouse with what must be amazing technology to anchor it into the rock as we had many docks swept away each winter by the ice. My family and I have so many fantastic memories of this point. It is true paradise. I still occasionally drive up the old cottage road and take a walk through memory lane. Some day I would love to see the old property again as I have just retired myself. If you want to see old pictures or hear stories, let me know.
