Our most valuable assets:

– New cottages.

Not renovated, but totally new. They smells like new. They looks like new. And all pipes and engineering systems are done in the proper way. So they are reliable and easy accessible.

– New water lines and hydro lines in the ground. This is a most invisible, but the most important asset. It is very expensive, and sometimes just impossible to fix lines in the ground. Sometimes you should dig out hundred feet to find the flow.

– We have all surveys, all building permits and all ESA inspections filed.

Then I just started my way to the cottage business, I was aware, that documents are one of the most important assets. Eight years later, I’m not really sure if all of them are really important for the business. Although, if you expect to do any development or alterations, it is better to have those papers.

– Private waterfront and private picnic spot on the lake for the each cottage and for the each cabin.

Please note: not “lake view” spots, not “lake access” cabins, as promoted by the most resorts.  We grant the privacy on the lake for the each guest. And, after 3 years of operations, I should say – this feature is our “best seller”.
