RESPECT YOUR ENVIRONMENT
The cottages are located in a rural neighbourhood- please be considerate of the local residents - summer season can be overwhelming with the onslaught of visitors. We need to be respectful of the people living here all year round - the area and the environment - no loud music, pick-up after yourself and follow the rules posted by The County. We need to show the local residents that Visitors can be respectful of their little piece of paradise - it’s a fine line we’re balancing - we want them to continue to embrace our visitors.
Tap water for the cottages is sourced from the lake and passes through a UV filter system. We recommend bottled water for drinking. Tap water okay to bathe, brush teeth and cook.
Insects-are a part of cottage life.
To keep them outside where they belong - keep the screen doors closed as much as possible. After dark keep the lights low and move quickly when entering and exiting your cottages.
We provide propane gas for the BBQs
Buy Local Burn Local.
You need to bring your own firewood. Please try to buy within the County - this is in an effort to control the introduction of invasive and harmful forest pest like the emerald ash borer.
For your convenience, our neighbour Morrison Point Farm sells organic eggs, honey and firewood.
Quiet Time 11.p.m.
Please enjoy your campfire and your cottage as long as you like but do so quietly; please keep a courteous ear for your neighbour - especially after 11:00pm
Parents, please remember your children are your responsibility. Please watch them closely in the pool area, along with the shoreline and around the playground area.
Garbage & Recycle
You are responsible to take your garbage & recycle to the new red metal shed . Please recycle in the appropriate bins.
Ask us about feeding the chicken and goats with your food waste - the kids(and adults) will love. It makes you happy to see the animals enjoying their meal.
Please be gentle with the septic system, use only single ply, septic safe TP. Please do not flush any items other than human waste and TP down the toilet - we do take a lot for granted when we live in urban areas. The slightest mishap is quite disastrous when you live in a country setting.
If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay with us.

It is a challenge trying to set up these amenities for our guests. We can increase the rental cost, but being remote, it cost more than within the city access; or, for a couple days you can switch off, reset and enjoy all that your vacation spot can offer you - swimming in the lake, fishing, paddle boarding, frog hunting, campfires and most importantly-bonding with your friends and family - these are how childhood memories are built.
For the BIG HOUSE, these amenities are included!
