Rural Life

Imagine leaving the hustle and bustle of the city behind and traded it all in. Instead, picture the peace, quiet, and tranquility of rural life in Muskoka including its nature and the panoramic views of the Canadian Shield interspersed with lakes of all sizes and shapes.

Picture heading out for a hike, a snowshoe, a bike ride, or a paddle to take in the flora and fauna – all within steps of your front or back door. Muskoka offers an abundance of forest and wetland properties in and around its 17 historic towns and charming villages where wildlife viewing is a part of your daily experience.

Properties in the rolling hills amongst Hillside, Dwight, and Dorset along Highways 60 and 35 as they kiss the south west border of Algonquin Park offer spectacular views year round. Muskoka has been recognized time and time again as one of the best places to view fall colours in Canada – come see why.

Agriculture in Muskoka is small scale and diverse. From grass-fed cows, specialty pork breeds, and free-range poultry, to fruit and vegetables, to honey and maple syrup, consider active and assessed agricultural properties in and around Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, and Huntsville for your ideal rural Muskoka life.
