Muskoka Collection

A Note from The Editors I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of this new creation - I’ve been joking in the office and saying “we’re giving birth to a new baby” and this birthing process has been so exhilarating! We are truly excited about providing another quality service to the Muskoka marketplace and the response from our advertising partners has been incredible. It’s my hope that this new magazine will not only be a way to celebrate the Muskoka luxury real estate market, but also a way to simply celebrate the Muskoka lifestyle. I know for myself and the rest of the team we feel truly blessed to be living and working in such a beautiful place and I hope that our enthusiasm shines through on every page. I think most readers will find this magazine to be light and easy browsing, full of brilliant pictures and engaging editorials. - Todd Todd Adair* President/Sales Representative

I am extremely excited to see the impact that this magazine will have on our clientele. We have always tried to think outside of the box and every year we come up with fresh ideas to help us do what we do best- sell properties! I am so pleased that many of the businesses that have agreed to partner with us are personally known to me. I’m so grateful to them for believing in us and in this exciting new project. “The Muskoka Collection” is the result of a team that works beautifully together, supporting and enjoying one another and my hope is that this is clear throughout this publication. - Megan Megan McLeod** Broker of Record

Laura Morrison

Mark Twain once wrote, “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” This has truly been my experience being a part of this inaugural issue. This “ship” is about to set sail through determination, courage, hard work and the incredible support from the team at Cayman Marshall, as well as our publisher. It has been an honour to be one of the editors. I think to accomplish great things we must believe that we can, live boldly and move ahead with confidence, integrity and passion! I am so very proud and privileged to have had my touch on this, and to be able to live the life I imagined. I am overwhelmed at the positive response from our first-class ad partners and my wish is that as you browse through and look at the showcase of beautiful homes, you too will be inspired to explore, dream and discover, as you turn each and every page. - Laura

Capturing the Essence of Client Appreciation One day last winter skiers and boarders got a chance to step back in time and ride a hill that many had forgotten even existed. The event was also a way to picture what the future will hold for someone who buys Muskoka’s only private ski hill.

“This is such a remarkable property, and the best way to appreciate it is to experience it,” says Todd Adair* of Cayman Marshall. “So we decided to open it up to a group of guests so they could do just that.” A few dozen guests spent the day skiing the hill’s five runs – a rare opportunity to enjoy powder skiing in Muskoka – taking in good food and live music in the chalet, and relaxing around the fire at the base of the hill. “It really was a taste test for potential buyers, a chance for them to see what winter weekends are like at this property,” said Todd*.

Although it’s almost forgotten now, for a couple of generations Steven’s Hill was the place to downhill in Muskoka. Located on Griffin Lodge Road south of Huntsville, it was created in the early years of the 20th century, at a time when skiing down the hill was immediately followed by a long climb back up to the top. A mechanical lift was soon added – the region’s first – and for a time the hill attracted highly competitive skiers, including Olympic champion Nancy Green. A massive ski jump was a popular attraction, and school children were bussed to the hill every weekend.

“My husband learned to ski here, and brought me out when we were still dating,” said Francine. Later known as Curlew Lodge, the hill eventually closed in the 1960s and fell into disrepair. The current owners came to see it on a whim. “My husband learned to ski here, and brought me out when we were still dating,” said Francine. “We saw that it was for sale, and we started to dream about how much fun it would be to own a ski hill.” When their offer was accepted, the couple had a “what have we done?” moment, then set to work clearing the hills. Trees that had grown up on the

runs were cut down and the crumbling ruins of the old chalet were removed. The original t-bar lift was repaired and a new cottage chalet – complete with lap pool for summer use – was built midway up the hill. For fifteen years, the property was a wintery playground for the couple and their friends and family. But life brings changes, and so the property was put on the market. “It’s time for someone else to enjoy this place,” says Francine. “We’ll miss it, though. It’s been a fabulous retreat.”

A History

of Speed and Elegance Chris-Craft Boats

It’s a story that’s familiar to every fan of historic Muskoka boats, a tale of a 19th century boatbuilder who went on to lead an industry. In his teens he began crafting skiffs to explore his local waterways. As the power boat age dawned, he began building faster and faster vessels. His talents eventually brought commissions building luxurious yachts for the world’s wealthiest consumers. The story could be told about Ditchburn or Minett, but this version has a couple of twists. For one, the local waterway that inspired the boatbuilder wasn’t Lake Muskoka or Rosseau, but the deltas of the St. Clair River in Michigan. And, unlike the Muskoka boat shops, Chris-Craft boats is still thriving. Greavette and MinettShields, Ditchburn and Duke have all folded, killed off by the Depression, or an inability to adapt to changing tastes, or the advent of fiberglass. But Chris-Craft., after a tumultuous 140-some years, is still delivering luxurious boats to customers around the world, including quite a few in Muskoka.

could get a better and more enjoyable return by building boats for his friends and for the visiting duck hunters. (He also earned renown as a decoy carver – decoys with his CC insignia on them are still highly coveted by collectors.) When Chris was twenty, he went into boatbuilding full time. It would be nearly 40 years before his company became Chris-Craft., but for the rest of his life he would be known as a superb boatbuilder, someone who knew and understood how to make boats go fast, and also loved to add luxurious touches. The speed was the element that drove much of his early success. The luxury came later. It’s difficult for modern boaters to understand just how popular boat racing was in the early 20th century. Races on the Detroit River or the Toronto waterfront drew massive crowds – tens or even hundreds of thousands of spectators who came to watch death-defying drivers like Gar Wood pilot their boats at breathtaking speeds.

The firm got its start in 1873, when the improbably named Christopher Columbus Smith built his first skiff. Like his older brother, Henry, 13-year-old Chris grew up surrounded by water. His home town of Algonac is located on one of the world’s largest freshwater deltas – the town’s many canals have led some overenthusiastic boosters to call it ‘The Venice of Michigan.’ The Smith brothers and their friends used the river for play and to earn money, hunting ducks for market, and guiding visiting hunters. But Chris soon found he Cayman Marshall International Realty Inc., Brokerage www.caymanmarshall.com

Part of the thrill came from the rapid advances in technology. Chris started by putting car engines into rowboats, pushing them along at speeds of seven or eight miles an hour. As the motors got better, he and a handful of other builders began to experiment with a new type of hull.

But timing is everything. Where Greavette had the misfortune to launch just before the Depression hit, a move that nearly killed the new company as quickly as it had begun, Chris-Craft sprang into existence at a boom time. Pleasure boating was becoming accessible to the middle classes, and production steadily increased through the 1920s. The company’s designers and builders drew on Chris-Craft’s heritage of fast boats and luxurious custom builds to create the best of both: boats that would cut through the water at speed, while featuring luxurious touches and superb craftsmanship.

Displacement hulls – in which the boat was pushed through the water – soon gave way to hydroplanes, in which the boat rode on top of the water, the way modern boats come up on plane. Steps in the hull helped break the boat free of the water even more, and boats reached previously unimaginable speeds. In 1910, Chris built a boat that went over 30 mph; just three years later, one of his boats ran well over 50 mph. It wasn’t long before airplane motors began providing even more horsepower, particularly after the First World War, when surplus motors were abundant. Speed records were shattered year after year.

The Depression hit all boat builders hard, but Chris-Craft weathered it better than most. There were layoffs and work slowed, but even by 1936 the company was starting to buy new property and build an expanded plant as sales started to pick up. By the end of the decade, Chris-Craft was offering a bewildering range of boats – nearly 100 different models, from skiffs and 15-foot runabouts to 55-foot cruisers – and building up to 1,000 boats a year.

Aside from the thrill of the speed, boat builders saw two great benefits in racing: it was a place to test new technology, and it was a way to market their brand. For the same reason that Ferrari and Porsche build Formula One cars today, Chris Smith built boats for Gar Wood a century ago. The most famous racer of his day, Wood helped raise Chris Smith’s name to prominence, while Chris and his sons Jay and Bernard helped Wood win races. Those prestigious race wins drew clients to Chris and his sons, who were happy to supply luxurious – and fast – boats to an elite clientele. In Algonac, as in Muskoka, most high end boats were custom orders. Builders like the Smiths might publish a catalogue of models, but their customers knew that they could customize the boat in any way they wished, even altering the hull design by requesting something longer or shorter or wider. But by 1921, Jay and Bernard had other ideas. Building custom boats was rewarding work – the company would continue doing it for years, crafting for customers like Katherine Hepburn, Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley. But the younger generation suspected that the real money was to be found in production work. They had seen how Henry Ford and others had used assembly lines to speed production of cars, and they knew the same approach would work with boats. The partnership with Gar Wood was amicably dissolved, and Chris-Craft Boats was finally born. Other boat builders were doing the same thing, or would follow suit. In Muskoka, for example, Greavette boats was launched when Tom Greavette decided to leave his employer, Herb Ditchburn, and set up a modern, production line boat factory just across the road.

“When the war ended and soldiers came pouring back home, the company entered the biggest boom period it had ever seen.” When the U.S. entered the Second World War, production rapidly switched to military vessels. Chris-Craft built landing craft – over 10,000 by the end of the war – as well as patrol boats, rescue boats, and even target vessels for training navy gunners. Profits during the war years were limited by legislation, but military contracts gave the company a chance to explore new techniques and materials. Plywood and industrial sealants were used for the first time, approaches that presaged the move to plywood boats and later to fiberglass. Chris-Craft also kept up its marketing budget, with slogans like “Buy war bonds today, command your own vessel tomorrow.” Promoting war bonds was good for the country; after the war, it would turn out to be good for Chris-Craft. When the war ended and soldiers came pouring back home, the company entered the biggest boom period it had ever seen. Owning a boat became part of the American dream, and Chris-Craft was a top choice for many of those returning servicemen. The company had also got a jump on many of its competitors, preparing for peacetime production even before Japan surrendered and the war ended.

The Smith family sold the company in 1960, and the firm changed hands several times over the next few decades. (At one time there were actually two separate companies – Chris-Craft Industries owned t.v. stations and chemical plants, but sold the boat-making division and leased the name to another company. The two parts were reunited in 2000.) The company built its last wooden boat in 1972, but the material remained an essential part of the boats. To this day, mahogany, teak and other woods are still used extensively in decks and swim platforms, as well as on dashboards and other decorative locations. Modern Chris-Craft boats retain more than just a history of wooden detailing. The number of models has diminished considerably – the 2014 catalogue shows 20 models, ranging from 21 to 36 feet. But Chris-Craft remains a builder that takes pride in luxurious details as well as high performance.

EAST OF ELEVEN Lake of Bays By: David Smith

Often seen as the lesser known cousin of the “Big 3� Lakes (Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph), Lake of Bays has rightfully earned its place as one of the most desirable lakes in Muskoka to locate. It is the largest lake in The Township of Lake of Bays and is actually the second largest lake in Muskoka. Located at the top of the watershed and fed by the Oxtongue River, leading from Algonquin Park, the lake is deep and crystal clear, with kilometers of natural shoreline, abundant bays and inlets that make it true to its name. Conveniently located almost equally between Bracebridge and Huntsville, the lake is serviced by the popular waterfront communities of Baysville, Dorset and Dwight.

Muskoka Collection

With great highway access around the entire lake, the area boasts many popular four-season activities, attractions and resorts. The Lake’s shoreline vegetation and water quality are preserved and protected by a unique Development Permit Process that was put in place by the Township in 2006. This system brought in guidelines that made it more challenging to develop near the shoreline, and although initially thought to be a negative feature, it is now viewed as a very desirable attribute about this lake. Property owners are now realizing that protecting the beauty of the shoreline area, so that the view from your dock (and your neighbours) is mostly natural, is what people really want to experience when they come to Muskoka. Much of the recent success of the area can also be attributed to the revitalization of the 520-acre Bigwin Island, which is one of the most unique properties in the cottage country of Muskoka. Unmatched in its rich history that started in June of 1920, it was a popular venue

In addition to all that Bigwin has to offer, Lake of Bays is also fortunate to have vibrant sailing and tennis clubs, which offer great programs for kids and adults alike. This past summer also saw the return of the SS Bigwin, the famed Muskoka steamship that was first put into service in 1910. After an extensive renovation project, made possible by the unwavering commitment of local cottagers, residents and organizations through an impressive fundraising initiative, the return of this precious part of lost heritage is now available for all residents and visitors to Lake of Bays to once again experience. Based in Dorset, regularly scheduled and private cruises take place in July and August. Finally, it would be remiss not to mention the proximity of Lake of Bays to one of our Nation’s treasures, Algonquin Park, which attracted famous artists such as Tom

for performances of big bands including Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Guy Lombardo. In the 40’s, Bigwin welcomed famous Hollywood couple Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, illustrious writers Ernest Hemingway and H.G. Wells. It was a favorite haunt of the Rockefellers, Princess Juliana of the Netherlands stayed for a visit, and Canadian Prime Ministers, including John Diefenbaker, often summered there. In the brilliant splendor that once greeted guests decades ago, Bigwin Island is now a thriving waterfront cottage community. Along with its championship golf course and world class dining, it once again provides a vast array of resort-style services, amenities and programs for its members, guests and property owners.

Thomson along with members of the Group of Seven to its beauty and inspiring landscape. Located a short distance away, the Park with its over 2,400 lakes and 1,200 kilometres of streams and rivers, offers a wide variety of activities, including canoeing, fishing, mountain biking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and day hiking; an incredible asset to residents and visitors to the area that cannot be overlooked. A little more laid back and relaxed, but with great value and selection, Lake of Bays is in every way a viable alternative to the “Big 3”...and is definitely worth considering if you are in the market for a Muskoka Waterfront Property.

Todd Adair* President/Sales Representative Todd made a name for himself in the tech industry back in 2002 at the ripe old age of 26. That is when he sold his first start-up tech company.  His next adventure started in 2004 when he authored, architected and delivered a unique marketing software business for Realtors.    Although Todd still owns that business as it continues to grow and serve real estate professionals in 26 countries, Todd took a hiatus from software to get practical experience in the industry.  In Todd’s first year he was the number one Remax agent in Muskoka selling almost $20 Million in waterfront properties.  That motivated him to continue on and become the co-founder and president of Cayman Marshall International Realty in 2012.    In Todd’s down time you  will  find him on the water wakeboarding, kite surfing, hacking up the fairways of the local golf courses and most importantly spending time with his family including his two children that are 3 and 7 years old.

Megan mcLeod** Broker of Record Oakville was home to Megan most of her life, but she grew a passion for Muskoka living while in Port Carling and was looking for a profession that would enable her to live and play here permanently, which became a reality in 1996. She left her sales position with Xerox and began her new career in Real Estate in 2000 in Muskoka. This demanding and rewarding industry complimented Megan’s savvy sales and marketing experience. She embarked on what has turned out to be a very successful real estate career, as a top producing agent for the last 15 years. Now a Broker of Record and Co-founder of Cayman Marshall, she loves what she does and is grateful to work with such a fine team of not only professionals but just really good people. She lives in Huntsville with her 7 year old son Marshall.

Her administrative experience including coordinating top producing teams fosters Dawn’s authentic nature and genuine service. Apart from her professional life, she adores spending time with her family and volunteering where she can.

Jeff Liddle* Sales Representative Jeff grew up cottaging in Muskoka and understands the desire that ultimately drives buyers to this wonderful place he calls home. After working in the Golf industry for some time, Jeff turned his focus back to his entrepreneurial sales roots and has been selling Muskoka fine homes & cottages for the past 6 years. Jeff’s honesty, attention to details, determination and ‘stay-the-course’ style has brought much success to his clients. Whether its guiding through the Muskoka waterways or landscapes, Jeff is always dedicated to finding his clients their dream property.
