Medical Attention While on Vacation

We never want to imagine getting sick or hurt on our vacation, but unfortunately, it does sometimes happen. It’s inevitable that when you are in a different place and exposed to different elements that at some point you may need immediate medical attention, a doctor’s office for urgent care or even just a drugstore for some over the counter relief. Some of the common reasons for a doctor/drugstore/emergency visit are; ear infections from swimming, bug bites, cuts and scrapes, allergic reactions and overexposure to the sun.

We have compiled a short list of hospitals, walk-in clinics and drugstores in cottage country so that you aren’t scrambling when you really need to see someone or get some relief. We will also keep this list in our cottage manuals so you have easy access to it if needed. Our hope is that you never have the need to consult this list but we have you covered in case you do. There are also a few options on the list for veterinary care should your pet require medical attention while staying at the cottage.
