Lake Rosseau cottages are some of the most sought after in the Muskoka area. As one of the “Big Three Lakes” it gives cottagers access to miles of boating on Lake Muskoka, Lake Joseph and the Muskoka River as well as Rosseau itself. Generally listings start to appear in reasonable numbers in early spring with the bulk showing up mid-summer. As one of Ontario’s prime recreational water ways it also demands a premium price.
There’s a large price range on Rosseau with a basic starter cottage in the $750,000.00 to $1,500,000.00 range to luxury waterfront real estate well over $10,000,000.00. Because the lake system is so extensive folks gravitate to larger boats so 2 and 3 slip boat houses with living quarters above are very coveted. Many properties are water access which can be a big bonus for people who want privacy.
