Drive to Georgian Bay properties are typically sought after as they provide a wonderful combination of cottage lifestyle experiences in the Parry Sound-Muskoka district; access to the wild nature of Georgian Bay, while enjoying the comfort and convenience of driving to your cottage. Many cottage buyers desire the peace of mind a drive-to property can provide and it certainly is a convenient option when considering transporting food, supplies and larger cottage items such as building materials. However, these properties tend to be very sought after by cottage real estate buyers and are generally significantly more expensive than other properties in the district.
As with all Georgian Bay properties, each property is unique in terms of its topography, waterfront shoreline and size, and can generally be used during the four seasons. Many of these properties also have the potential of becoming a future permanent resident for those who are considering retiring in the Parry Sound-Muskoka region. This gives buyers the option of utilizing their cottage property over the years and planning for their retirement as needed. If this is the case, it is important to consider local amenities such as health care.
