Loon and Turtle Lakes are connected by a short 16′ wide canal. A granite ridge separates these lakes. The properties are located between 3 km and 8 km from Gravenhurst, depending on their location on the lake. There are two main roads, one being Pinetree Road on the granite ridge between the lakes and Loon Lake Road on the north side. Both are maintained year round and there is garbage pick up too. Redwing Drive leads from Loon Lake Road south along the lower half of Loon Lake but this gravel road is not maintained by the Town. The lake is about 16 feet deep and Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass are the most likely catch of the day although Northern Pike and Sunfish are also present. This is one of many ‘finger’ lakes in the area that were gouged out by the glacier. The shoreline is typical Muskoka granite with birch, oak and a variety of pine tree scattered throughout the area. Many cottages are about 50 years old and most have 100′ wide lots. There are about 150 cottages on these lakes and about 20% have been winterized and 10% are used year round. Shopping is very close because the Town of Gravenhurst is only minutes away. The acidity of the lake is similar to most in the area, moderate. It is not ‘weedy’ and if you are looking for a lake without any weed you are likely going to find a ‘dead’ lake. This is a healthy lake. The ‘Princess Margaret Sweepstakes’ cottage has been built on this lake in 2017. The research department of Muskoka Real Estate Services has determined that values on Loon Lake range from modest summer cottages valued at $320,000. to newer cottage/homes at $1,100,000.00.
