Sometimes it seems like being at the cottage is all about people–guests, family, neighbours, friends (and, sigh, friends of friends) all packed in and creating a never-ending atmosphere of happy chaos. There’s something awesome about being the host with the most–but sometimes, there’s something equally awesome about stepping away from all the visitors and enjoying a little peace and quiet, all alone. Here are our top reasons why solitude at the cottage is a wonderful thing.
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.
