Eagle Island is one of the last few remaining gems of old Muskoka. This island is a quiet place that requires boats for pleasure and for transportation. The island was first acquired from the Crown in the late 1890’s by The Campbell and Maison families. Later it was purchased by the Bruge family from Buffalo and then the Lockwood family from Buffalo.
Georgia Meade Green Forman purchased the island in 1921, and it has remained in the family since then. The 5 live-in buildings, the ice house, the long dock, and the 7 + slip boathouse are grandfathered in, meaning, the number of buildings and kitchens that house people found here cannot be duplicated in today’s environment.
All have been preserved with up to date electrical, plumbing, and foundations, except for the small building at the end of the island. History is in every corner of every building.
The sellers hope that someone will come and appreciate all that is offered from the old stone masonry to the ancient glass windows. It is a place for family, for the gathering of friends, and for rejuvenating your spirit.
