              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1952

              About the owner: Mike and Lois moved from BC to enjoy the Muskoka experience. Mike is a professional Scuba Instructor (MSDT PADI 211856). Qualify here before you head south.

              Why the Owner Chose Gravenhurst:
              Lois’ parents built the cottage in 1952. She and her family enjoyed summers there. At that time there was no road and everybody and everything had to be brought across the lake by boat. Later Lois and her first husband Bob bought the cottage from her parents. They raised their family there enjoying full summers at the cottage. Her children had summer jobs in Gravenhurst and it was their second home. Now Michael and Lois have had the cottage for 18 years. It is a well loved family place. Our neighbours have been there for almost as long as we have and we all love the lake and the surroundings.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Quietness, a place for personal reflection, prayer and reading. Special family times. Fun when kids are swimming, tubing, canoeing, and enjoying the lake.
