Welcome to Lakeside Boat Storage.
We are located on Pigeon Lake, one of the finest lakes in the Kawartha's just outside of Bobcaygeon. Bring your boat by water or by trailer and we will accommodate full service storage with the option of other preventative maintenance services. We store a large variety of items and vehicles. Please contact us with your storage or maintenance needs.

We at Lakeside thank you for a wonderful season. The weather was excellent all summer. There was a lot of activities such as Wakeboarding, Fishing tournaments, and other Leisure Boating going on around here all season. Boats Sales were very positive this year compared to last. Looking forward to seeing everyone back here next spring.

July 8  2020.  All inventory has sold we have no boats on the lot. Let me know if you have a boat for sale.

June 6 2020.  Now operating somewhat normally. Boats selling very well this year let me know if you are looking to sell.

MAY 29 2020.  We now have half our boats out in two weeks. Normally we would have been working for five weeks. We are still requiring more than 1 week booking to have your boat ready this spring. Please be patient.

MAY 24 2020.  WOW. Used Boats (especially pontoons boats are flying off the shelves.  If you’re looking stop by soon we still have 2 available.  

This spring, we are only summarizing and getting boats ready once you contact us and make an appointment.  We are booking 1 week out minimum. 

Bellhaven and Pigeon hollow,  Please confirm your OWN dock is in when calling for your appointment. 

 

MAY 16 2020.  ITS A GO !!!!!!!!!!!!!   WE ARE OPEN !

Please keep in mind that we had lost 5 weeks of prep time.  We literally just started.   Expect delivery at least 2  weeks from the time you ask for your boat.  We are slowed down because of safety precautions  in place.  If repair service were required, delays will be greater however we will do our best to accommodate.   

MAY 13 2020.  Cold weather is over !!!!! YAY. We are now working on the fishing boats for the people that usually get their boats on Mothers day (past).   Still waiting for the Official word from the Ontario Government for Marina's to get the GO.  

 

MAY 8  2020.  We are now operating as of this past monday as per Ontario regulations.  However our next delay is the night temperatures consistantly below freezing  over the next week.   This puts a halt on our operations.  We appreciate your patience.

MAY 1  2020.  Well , Normally today is the day we would be opening.   Unfortunately nothing is going  on here as we await the Government and Health officials decisions to modify the essential services list, or roll out the start of the 3 phase " Back to Normal" campaign.

  Please be patient as we would all like to get back out on the water.

  But remember,  SAFTEY FIRST!

 

April 29 2020.  Copy paste this link to read a letter from the Ministry of Transportation is to provide guidance to the Boating Ontario Association about how the declaration of a provincial emergency and closure of non-essential businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak will impact marinas in Ontario

April 23 2020.   We want to assure you that all Boats in Storage during this time, can stay in storage at NO additional fee for the summer if necessary, or  until we get through these unprecedented times.  More detailed information to follow. 

 

April 11 2020.    In thess time of uncertainty, we here at Lakeside Boats wish you and  your families safe nagivation though this all.  So far the government of Ontario has mandated marinas to remain closed at this point.  We are waiting to see where this liquid  situation will take us.

EXAMPLE CURRENT  POST FROM LARGEST MARINA IN ONTARIO BELOW and another...

"Sorry to post this again but we are still getting questions. 

To reiterate the last few posts: The marina is currently closed. This includes the office, the gas bar, the ramp - everything. Nothing at the marina is open. The entrances are blocked. Do not come here to work on your dock. Do not come here to fish. Do not come here to talk to staff about something. As much as we’d all love to see you, we are social distancing and following orders as per Premier Doug Ford. Like all local marinas, the marina is closed and will remain closed until given permission by the government to let people on the property.

Staff have brought it to our attention that people are reaching out to them via personal channels and we are going to request you please to respect their personal privacy outside of their job. If you have questions, you can always email or call the office for clarification, or check the website, in addition to any posts here on our Facebook.

Questions about when the government will allow businesses to reopen can be directed to government officials. 

We understand this post doesn’t apply to 95% of those reading this, so again, apologies for having to post this. 

Thank you and see you when this all ends"

 

" Muskoka Marinas facilities are now closed and all services suspended due to the recently modified COVID-19 Essential Services List. This includes all launches and out of storage. We ask everyone to be patient, most of all be safe and to be thankful and care for the ones you love. "
