With winter rentals, the primary question from renters tends to be what the cottages heat source is. When renting in the winter season it is particularly important that you rent a cottage that is fully winterized. Items such as insulation, heating, hot/cold water, and ploughed road access are all important. You may prefer electric baseboard heating, forced air or you may prefer to rely on a cozy wood-burning fireplace or peaceful gas fireplace to keep you warm during your stay. These are all items that can be looked into when renting, so dont let the cold keep you away from the cottage!
Many of our rental cottages are open and available throughout the whole year. The fall, winter and spring can be beautiful, peaceful times to enjoy a cottage holiday and enjoy sights and activities that cannot be enjoyed in the summer.
Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, ice fishing, sledding and more are all activities that can be enjoyed in the cold and snow. Keeping your family active and entertained throughout the whole year can be a challenge, but a cottage getaway provides opportunities and the potential for great fun and adventure no matter what time of the year.
If downhill skiing is your activity of choice, consider renting a cottage during your ski holiday. A cottage provides your own space, your own warmth and the freedom to cook, eat, sleep and relax on your own terms. A cottage rental in the Grey Highlands and Midland/Penetanguishene area could be the perfect option for you to be close enough to the ski hills while still enjoying the peace and serenity of cottage life.
Rentals in the off season or low season at our cottages are very flexible during this time of year and, at many cottages, stays can range from a minimum 3 night rental to a full week, to several weeks and months! This gives you the freedom to maximize your time away from work and not be limited in the time that you have at the cottage.
So, even though summer is ending you have plenty to look forward to! The leaves will soon start changing to their brilliant colours, the snow will cover the ground in a sparkling layer of snow, and then spring will be here before you know it with its warm air and refreshing greenery.
