Canada Cottages Country

There are urban cottages operating within cities, villages and towns in Canada. However, some are one-offs while others are large clusters of Canada cottages and cabins operating as resorts. As a result there are so many cottages located in various wilderness regions within many provinces and territories and we refer to these regions as Cottage Country.

Types of Canada Cottages

Canada cottages, chalets and cabins vary is style, size, amenities, price and quality. They vary from basic to elegant - from a rustic trappers cabin to a ritzy mountain chalet.

There are simple cabins with no power, no phone, no cell service, a table, a wood stove and some bunk beds if you are lucky. These  rustic cabins are used by hikers and cross country skiers located deep in the wilderness backcountry. Because of the remoteness vistors often must pack in their own supplies and bedding. On the other end of the cottage spectrum are the totally self contained cottages with multiple rooms, lofts & kitchens and every possible amenity provided plus some.

Canada Cottages Extras

Some of the extras that are available with some of the elite Canada cottages and cabin rental accommodations may include a lodge, tours, guides, activity building, gift shops, food store, restaurant, spa, golf course, ski hill and sporting equipment.
