“Art in the Park” Parry Sound
There is no other place I would rather be in the summer months than Parry Sound, Ontario. Sure I’m biased as our family cottage has been located in this are for more than 20 years. But beyond that, where else in the great white north of Ontario and the Muskokas can you truly have it all? Great escapes, incredible vistas, the best fishing spots, and the longest snow mobile trail the province has to offer, are all waiting for you in this year round fun filled town. Read more »

Winter Prep:  Seasonal Cottage Rentals and the Shut-down
Not all cottage rentals are 4 season dwellings. In fact most are not. Canadian climate generally does not permit a simple solution to all year maintenance for heat and hydro. Even solar powered and wind powered homes require maintenance and monitoring all year due to our winters.

Quebec City, is it really a city?  Or actually is it a walk back in time?
“Kébec”, named after the Algonquin word meaning “where the river narrows”, is the second largest city in the province of Quebec, and as well is the province’s capital. The St. Lawrence River narrows as it enters the city, on the one side Levis, and on the other side, Cape Diamont. This is how the city came by its name. The St. Lawrence River is an integral part of Quebec history, both in merchant and battle. The city’s historical significance dates back to the early part of 1500’s, and is one of the oldest historical cities in North America. Jacques Cartier built the first settlement on site in 1535.
