Bryce Davidson’s family has been on the lake for four generations. He says the over 60-year-old marina had a lot of memories attached to it.
Davidson describes the property as a ‘Mom and Pop’ type Marina. He says the owners were on the edge of retirement and the night of the fire the husband was outside the building watching firefighters try to put out the flames.
Davidson says the small community of cottagers are all feeling the same loss now as most have had generations of families grow up with the Marina in their lives. He hopes the Marina will be rebuilt and keep the same ‘Mom and Pop’ feel that made it so special to the Skeleton Lake cottagers in the first place.
Muskoka Lakes Fire reported the calls came in sometime after 2:00am on Wednesday morning.
