Great Reasons to Rent a Cottage This Year!

Vacations come in many forms.  There is often a lot of debate on how you will spend your limited vacation time, but I would like to share just some of the great reasons why renting a cottage may be a good choice for your vacation this year!

Last summer Jayne’s Cottages facilitated over 300 cottage rentals in the Muskoka area alone. Here’s how a few of our guests described their experience!

“It was our first time renting a cottage in Muskoka, Jayne was extremely helpful through the entire process. She always responded to my emails and inquiries immediately and I felt I could always ask her any question. Jayne and her staff were very professional and were always available… setting up the water trampoline, housecleaning, rental of a boat to restaurant recommendations. Jayne had all the answers. We had a fantastic vacation on Lake Rosseau. The memories will last a lifetime.” – C.S. Channel
