Muskoka Real Estate for the Discerning Buyer
03/01/2013

The Highlands Estate development at Deerhurst Resort is a haven of executive recreational homes.  Custom designed to be perfectly suited to active lifestyle living, these fine homes are the perfect blend of elegance and comfort. The backdrop for Phase 1 of the development is Deerhurst’s Highlands Golf Course.

The magnificent Deerhurst Highlands golf course was designed by Robert Cupp and Thomas McBroom.  It is a par 72 championship golf course which is hailed as one of the finest in the region.  Our beautiful development will of course, have great appeal to the golfing enthusiast – and during the off-season, the fairway provides wonderful walking, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing opportunities. But there are multiple other recreational pursuits in close proximity to this great location.  Hidden Valley Highlands for downhill skiing is only a few kilometers away, Fairy Lake and Peninsula Lake are virtually at your doorstep, and Algonquin Park, with its numerous trails and lakes, is about 20 minutes by car.

This area is also famous for its four large chain lakes. – and the exceptional boating, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing available on them. Peninsula, Fairy, Vernon and Mary Lakes are connected and offer more than 40 miles of boating.  With the additional feature of having several wonderful places to dock and enjoy a lunch or dinner or a sunny afternoon ice cream cone with the grandchildren, being so close to this great waterway, certainly enhances this location’s appeal.

Hailed as one of the most beautiful regions in the world, you can expect to be surrounded with beauty in each of our four spectacular seasons. The fall colours of Muskoka command a worldwide audience of travellers, who come great distances to see what we are blessed to have in our beautiful back gardens. Our long hot summers are rarely smoggy and our winters rarely slushy. While we may have to face a few little bugs in the spring, it’s nothing that the breeze from the lake cannot handle!

Huntsville is less than 10 kilometers away and offers an abundance of quaint shops, fine dining opportunities and a theatre. The Algonquin Theatre brings world class performers to Huntsville, and gives the talented local thespian community a great venue for their productions.

Huntsville has a full service hospital, complete with a chemo clinic and a dialysis unit. The community also supports the service of several internal medicine specialists, so most health care needs can be accommodated without the need to travel.

There are many other service professionals in this north Muskoka town. Finding dentists, optometrists, and naturopathic doctors will not be a problem. You can obtain almost every kind of massage, from shiatsu to hot rocks. This is a great community, perfectly developed to enrich the experiences of the retiree or vacationer.  In Huntsville you can be pampered in every way!

Our busy lifestyles mean we crave a place to totally relax, and Highland Estates provides exactly that. Spectacular architecture, quality finishes, and a premium location make the decision to relocate an easier one.

As always, I welcome your questions/comments about this blog or about Muskoka Real Estate in general.
