The Brandy Lake Good Neighbour Code

Brandy Lake is a place that all of us, as summer visitors, cottage owners/families, and full time residents, value greatly. The positive experience we have here are rooted in family, outdoor recreation, and spending time with friends and relatives. The lake is valuable, and maintaining the health of the lake remains a core value for the Brandy Lake Association. We have developed this good neighbour code to help everyone enjoy Brandy Lake for years to come.

Brandy Lake Association Strategic Plan

Greetings from Brandy Lake!  We hope this finds you and your family safe and preparing for a safe, physically distanced or properly bubbled holiday season wherever you are!  Brandy Lake is fully covered with ice, but it is still very thin in several areas, so we urge extreme caution as always when venturing out onto the lake at this time of year.  Everyone is hoping for a white Christmas, but so far, our snowfalls keep melting with warming weather!  We hope that if you are not already at the lake when you receive this, that you find some time to enjoy winter at the lake over...

An integrated solution for flooding, economic prosperity in Muskoka

Written by: Kevin TrimbleOriginally published to: It’s time to get serious about getting residents, businesspeople and decision-makers to start building a watershed plan for the Muskoka River watershed.

If Muskoka were to...

Hi everyone. I'm looking for suggestions for getting drinking water in our cottage. We are thinking of a filtration system, but I'm concerned about frequent clogging/maintenance/filter changes etc. We could dig a well but that costs a lot, or we can keep lugging water jugs around. Any input is appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less

Last night's first Brandy Lights Flotilla was a hit. We had 10 boats out, plus the 3 canoes. In addition, approximately every 3rd cottage had someone or a group waving on the dock or deck, many even shared lights of their own to welcome us as the group toured the lake. Here are some photos. Please post and share your own. ... See MoreSee Less
