The houseboat—or floating home if it’s sedentary—offers all the benefits of a cabin and boat combined. Canada’s extensive waterways make floating hotels of all shapes and sizes ideal additions to the landscape—and great destinations for those looking to get off the beaten path. So, next time you want to explore our home and native land, try staying on one of these unique vessels. We’re sure you’ll have a whale of a time.
Like many successful Canadian brands, Cottage Life was created from humble beginnings. As new cottage owners, Al Zikovitz and Wendela Roberts were in need of help with the many unique challenges of their recently purchased cottage. They spent an entire summer conjuring up a myriad of content ideas for a high quality publication specifically created for waterfront cottage owners. In April 1988, the first issue of Cottage Life hit the newsstands and was an instant hit with cottage owners of all stripes.
The growth of Cottage Life during the past 26 years has resulted in one of Canada’s most enduring and best-loved brands.
