I mean, who doesn’t like cottage people? Cottage people are people who love spending time in nature, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. They appreciate the peace and quiet that comes with living in a rural setting, and they relish the opportunity to escape to their cottage or cabin whenever possible.
Cottage people are often passionate about outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, and boating, and they take pride in maintaining their property and keeping it in top shape. They may also enjoy hosting friends and family at their cottage, whether for a weekend getaway or a full-fledged vacation.
Canadian cottage people tend to be friendly and outgoing, and they enjoy the camaraderie that comes with being part of a tight-knit community. They may attend local events and festivals, or participate in activities like fishing derbies and bonfires. You can also network and engage with builders, contractors, and those able to tell you about the upcoming and available products associated with cottage living around Ottawa. These types of folks will be there, will you?
If you do plan on attending the Ottawa Cottage Life and Backyard Show, maybe you’ll run into a Hamre Real Estate agent. Some of us will be there, and we hope to see you there too!
