The Iconic Canadian Cottage Experience

Posted: Mar 24, 2014 | Category: Cottaging | View All Blog Posts

For over a century, folks have looked to Ontario’s wilderness to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and to find the perfect cottage to be their vacation headquarters.

While some parts of cottage country and its lakes have become over-populated and over-priced, Loring-Restoule is still home to family-owned cottage resorts that offer an intimate and relaxing vacation experience, one that comes from being a bit more removed from this busy world.

Think of this as home away from home…

Family and friends can stay together in the comfort of a cottage or a cabin nestled on the shores of a sparkling blue lake. Start your days with a morning dip and a coffee on the dock, spend afternoons swimming, paddling or just floating around. Build a crackling bonfire at night to cook the fish you caught, or to toast some mandatory marshmallows. Spend evenings gazing at the bright carpet of stars above – or the northern lights – as the silence of the night settles in.

Some cottage resorts provide everything you need for your stay, including dining. Others give you the option to bring your own food favourites from home. Many spots have social activities to entertain and introduce you to fellow guests, and gear and equipment for you to use during your stay, such as canoes and kayaks or ATVs. (And if you’ve never tried it, we’ll teach you how to bait your own hook.)

Whatever your preference and whichever the season, a cottage resort or cottage rental in Loring-Restoule is the perfect place to call home while you visit Ontario’s most beautiful wilderness destination.
