Does the cottage come with towels and bedding?
We provide hand and tea towels for your use. Please bring your own bath/shower/beach towels, as we do not provide them (or laundry services).
We do provide cleaned and sanitized sheets and blankets for your use. However, due to health and sanitary regulations, we do not provide any pillows. Please bring your own pillows for use during your stay.
Do you provide toilet paper, soap and/or any toiletries?
Although we do provide hand soap in the bathrooms and dish soap in the kitchen, we do not provide any bath/shower soap. Please bring your own personal soap and toiletries.
Do I need to bring my own food and/or condiments, etc.?
We do not supply food, condiments, salt/pepper, etc. Please bring your own supplies for the duration of your stay.
What equipment/utensils are provided in the kitchen?
Each of our cottage kitchens are fully equipped with a fridge, stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, kettle and cupboards.
What is your current cancellation policy?
For the moment, if a reservation from a Canadian resident is made that falls during any active lockdown or stay-at-home period, it will be refused and/or refunded. If a reservation is made far in advance, and the stay suddenly falls within a lockdown, the deposit will be credited towards a future stay, or refunded, as it is obviously out of control of the Guest when this happens.
Is the tap water safe to drink?
Absolutely! We have a state-of-the-art filtration system, including a multi-step reducing micron tank system, and UV sterilization. The water is drawn fresh from our beautiful lake, and then undegoes over 6 steps and frequent testing to ensure cleanliness.
Is Wi-Fi available?
We do provide free wi-fi in certain areas of the resort. Most cottages fall within coverage, although the further away from the main Lodge and Welcome Centre your device is, the weaker the signal will be.
Wi-fi is provided for light duty communications only, such as checking your email, etc. Becuase of the poor internet plans available in our rural area, bandwidth is extremely limited, and cannot support streaming (Netflix, Crave, YouTube, etc.), video calling (Facetime, Skype, etc.), or other bandwidth-intensive activities. If a device is found to be using too much bandwidth, it may be blocked from using the wi-fi completely, to free up capability for other Guests. Please use the wi-fi sparingly, and with fair use in mind.
Can I book a winterized cottage for less than two nights during the winter?
Although the website ony allows a two night minimum on our cottages, for the winter season, we allow shorter stays in our Pine cottage. Please contact us for details and/or arrangements.
