07 Aug 5 Reasons to Say “Yes” to Cottage Ownership
Are you looking back over the Canada Day weekend and feel like you’re missing out on cottage life? As Canadians, we take cottage season pretty seriously. It’s one of our most beloved past times, and when you think about lakeside docks, the smell of fresh pine, campfires, and wearing all the plaid you can find, it’s not hard to see why.
Cottage living offers the chance to get away from the city, smog, and traffic while still being able to enjoy your own home amenities. If you’re teetering on the idea of jumping into the cottage life, here are five reasons to say “Yes” to cottage ownership.
Your Own Beautiful Retreat to Enjoy
Owning a cottage might be a serious investment, but it’s one that you can benefit from for a long time. Having a cottage to call your own means that you can create your own private oasis to visit whenever you please when the hectic city life is wearing you down. If you’re the kind of person who finds pleasure and solace in nature, then cottage ownership is definitely for you.
If you’re always struggling to figure out what to do with the kids during the summer when school is out and you can’t whisk them away on vacation every week, imagine not having to. With only a short drive, you can pack in the family and enjoy every weekend staycationing at the cottage. The kids get to run amuck outdoors and actually unplug for an extended period of time, while you kick back or take a dip in the lake. Can it get any better?
A Family Heirloom
Cottages are usually kept in the family for generations. So once you buy it, your kids can enjoy making so many memories there and then eventually even bring their own kids to enjoy it years from now. This is what makes it such a worthy investment.
Make New Friends
Spending time up in your new necks of the woods opens you up to a whole new community of like-minded people. It allows you and the family to interact with your neighbours and make new lifelong friendships that can make your cottage time even more amazing.
Make It Your Own
Camping or renting out a property can be fun, but eventually you realize that your body just isn’t cut out for tent-life anymore and not being able to access essential amenities (like a coffee maker) is a game-changer.
That’s the beauty of owning a cottage. You get to make it your own home away from home. That means you can stock it up, design it and include all of your must-haves like a coffee maker, and even beds that are actually comfortable to sleep in. Just imagine!
Being a Canadian and a cottage owner often go hand in hand. So if you’ve been debating about your decision to own, take comfort in knowing that it’s a worthy investment that you’ll be thankful for years from now.
