A good business opportunity

I was surfing the web for Muskoka Chair plans when I came upon an interesting article that was published in a community newspaper catering to the summer visitors to that region of central Ontario.
The people of Bracebridge, Gravenhurst, and Huntsville take a great deal of pride in their unique area of Canada that caters to visitors first from Toronto, and then the rest of the world.
Muskoka is as unique as the area connecting Rainy Lake to Nestor Falls, Sioux Narrows, and Morson. We, too, attract visitors, primarily from the United States but also the rest of the world.
The outdoor chair known as the Muskoka Chair is a unique piece of Canadiana. We have two sitting on our deck at the cottage and I take great pride in them, having built them of local cedar.
What caught my attention was that a French developer was building an 800 cottage resort in France that would feature French-styled cottages. In the centre of the resort will be a huge indoor complex that would be central to the development.
The cottages and the central building will become a giant theme park based on the cottage experience of Canada. The central complex with beaches, trees, and water pools will never have a cloudy, windy, or rainy day.
In essence, every day will be the perfect Canadian day.
The developer has identified that many in Europe want the Canadian cottage experience—without having to come to Canada.
The other item was the development of time-share resorts on the larger lakes in the Muskokas, which are creating a great deal of controversy because of their size.
Time shares are common in southern resorts and ski resorts, but have been slow in coming to Canadian summer ones. The cost of owning a cottage in Ontario is growing beyond the reach of many, and the opportunity to own and have the use of a cottage for two weeks in the summer is very attractive.
I wonder if there is a business opportunity for a time share resort in this area?
