Without a lift getting to the water involved a noisy, scary, 15 minute drive in a 4 x 4 vehicle on a steep, rough track that disturbed the neighbours. With the lift it’s 4 minutes and the neighbours can’t hear a thing.
The owners of this lift live at their cottage year-round and found they were spending less and less time in the boathouse and on the water. The lift turns trips to the boathouse into moments to rest and enjoy their view of Muskoka.
Without a lift providing lifetime access from the cottage to the water, this would not have been a viable retirement home for the purchasers. With the lift it created the perfect retirement home.
These cottage owners really needed this lift to utilize the whole cottage and the water, without the lift they were considering selling.
This cottage property was a multi-generational family purchase and, without the lift, it would not have happened.
The Owners decided that it made sense to install this beautiful 2-Pitch Lift in to help sell their unique Shim-Sutcliffe designed cottage. The lift gives all prospective purchaser the ability to get to and from the water.
The new purchaser of this property needed the lift to accommodate his whole family, many who would arrive by boat.
These cottage owners had considered getting the lift a few years earlier and the time to act was right.
This lift began with a call from a Real Estate Agent who had clients that were very interested in purchasing this property but they needed a lift to make it work for everyone in their family. 44 days later the property had sold, closed and the lift was running.
