Award-winning photographer John de Visser and lifestyles writer Judy Ross examine one of Muskoka's most striking features, its boathouses. Exteriors range from Victorian lavishness to Shaker simplicity. Some of these boathouses date back to the 1800s, some are Muskoka modern. Inside are inspired sitting rooms, bedrooms, baths, kitchens, and cherished collections of family memorabilia.

If you are a lake cabin owner or just enjoy going to one this series of two books about the Boathouses of the Muskoka lakes region of Ontario is extremely interesting. The descriptions of the history of the boathouses and the photography of them and the many times classic boats in them is fabulous. I wish the author and photographer would do more.
