Fictional Moonglow Island

There’s something about this rocky island that speaks to me. So I based my fictional Moonglow Island on it – one of the 4 owned by the Thorntons. The real island, Wistowe on Lake Rosseau, is part of a similar group. And as in the novels, they’re close to “Wyndwood”,  inspired by Mazengah Island. There is a spacious century cottage on Wistowe; the only one on the entire island. You can catch a glimpse of it in the photo below. Wistowe was profiled in the excellent book Old Muskoka: Century Cottages & Summer Estates, by Liz Lundell.
