Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take…
Bob Clarke and his wife Marnie have been cottaging in Muskoka for over 30 years. Marnie’s parents’ cottage was on Mary Lake and while they were dating they went to the cottage every possible summer weekend. In 1987, at the age of 24, Bob bought 2000 feet of shoreline and 50 acres on Big Island on Lake Vernon for $35,000.00 (which was borrowed!)
A year later, the property was subdivided into 7 lots and all sold the following summer. With the proceeds, the Clarkes purchased a vacant lot on Lake Joseph on the Joe River. In the first year, they built a 40 x 60 foot single slip dock by hand – without power! The following year they built a 1400 sq ft Normerica post and beam and completed most of the work themselves with the help of family and friends. That was the northern home until 1998 when they sold and started purchasing vacant lots and older cottages for renovation around the Big Three lakes.
…but by the moments that take our breath away.
The above have given our family the rare opportunity to experience what the advantages are on the Big Three and on many of the Lakes of Muskoka. With this, we can bring a “real life” perspective of buying, selling, living and building in Muskoka. Bob has had his real estate license since 1987, Marnie has had hers since 2003. Marnie decorates their cottages herself and has connections with multiple suppliers and staging experience.
Prior to real estate, Bob was with a public electronics firm for almost 20 years. He was involved in marketing, sales, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions. They now reside full time in Muskoka and call Evergreen Point on Lake Rosseau home. Bob and Marnie are both members at The Lake Joseph Club and Muskoka Lakes.
