The FLC News – Issue 6

Welcome to Issue 6 of the FLC News, MDM’s newsletter keeping you up to date with all the progress on site at the Fenelon Lakes Club as well as sharing some local community highlights and news.


Heating Up For Summer!

Construction at our Fenelon Lakes Club community is speeding along! Over at Balsam House, exterior finishing work is well underway with the basecoat substantially applied. On the interior, finish painting has started on the 2nd floor along with final millwork and tiling installations. Exterior finishing work has also begun on Cameron house.

At the Clubtowns, curbs and sidewalks have been poured, soon to be followed by base coat asphalt. Elsewhere, full attention is being paid to interior finishes with painters, tilers and millwork installers hard at work!

Recently, a local drone photographer managed to grab some stunning shots of the community from the air. Check them out via the link below!

Stable Prices and Strong Demand in the Cottage Market

As summer arrives, cottaging becomes a Canadian obsession once again. The Toronto Sun reports that while the pandemic real estate frenzy has subsided, the market for recreational properties, driven by desire and disposable income, has stabilized and even grown in regions like Kawartha Lakes.

The article goes on to point out that it is highly unlikely demand will diminish significantly unless a sudden influx of new lakes appears close to the GTA. Even if the supply of cottages increases, it is expected that the market will readily absorb them, maintaining a stable demand-supply balance.
