A view toward the west showing Bigwin’s two dining rooms. Concrete construction saved this building from demolition.
The main entrance to the dining areas
Behind the dining halls are the Tea room and the hotel suites, now converted to condominiums. Fireplace remains shadow a demolished structure.
Begun in 1915 and opened in 1920, the famous Bigwin Inn was once the largest and most luxurious resort in North America. Located on Bigwin Island in the Lake of Bays, Muskoka, Ontario, the Inn has played host to the rich and famous over the decades. Clark Gable, Queen Juliana of the Netherlands, Prime Minister Diefenbaker, the Blacks, Westons, Kennedys and Rockerfellers all found their way to the Inn. Entertainers included Louis Armstrong and the big bands.
Guests would travel to Bigwin by steamer…the “Bigwin”….(now restored and fully operational) Wanda III or other watercraft. Golfing, swimming, boating, tennis, and horseback riding were some of the amentiies offered.
After a period of decline beginning in the 1950s the Resort fell into a period of dereliction, until substantial restoration was undertaken in the 1980s. Some of the iconic structures, such as the Rotunda, had to be demolished. The Inn’s remaining hotel suites have been converted into condominiums (with more on the way) and it still offers fine dining and public use of the world class eighteen hole golf course in the shoulder summer seasons.
How fortunate that this iconic landmark has in large part survived and been modified to meet the needs of the current generation(s). Enjoy the video below.
Our most recent sale is this classic Lyman runabout.. The boat had been in the same family for 43 years! The Lyman has undergone recent comprehensive restorative work with many new upgrades. This runabout is powered by a rebuilt 210 hp. Crusader engine. The sale included an upgraded trailer. No doubt the very reasonable asking price of $17,900 helped to interest the purchaser. The vendor was pleased with the marketing provided by Port Carling Boats. Please see comments and additional photos below.

We have been instructed by the owner of this versatile classic Sea Master to adjust the price of the boat to $7,500. This is a dramatic reduction from the original asking price of $17,500. (A new character-less “plastic” boat of similar size would likely cost four times as much. Even a trailer is included!) Please […]
Enjoy this video of antique and classic wooden race boats, racing around several courses in the U.S.A. Despite some heavy wave action in one of the Gold Cup races, the drivers are able to achieve astonishing speeds, considering the time period. Who says that wooden boats won’t stand up to a beating!
