Welcome to The Cottage Wife!

My husband Brian and I have had a cottage on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada for over 10 years now, and thought it would be fun to share some of our adventures with you.

Like any cottage, it’s a great place for friends & family and adventures like snakes, bears (real and impersonated), and renovations. And when it comes to those renovations – NOTHING at the cottage is normal! We’ve discovered that’s the most normal part of cottage renovations. I’m sure you’ll hear more about that as these have been some of the greatest adventures we’ve had so far. When we’re not in DIY and renovation mode we go hiking, fishing and exploring.

Enjoy! Leave comments, ask questions … it’s all good!

Going Green at The Cottage

I’ve been struggling with this topic for a while now – years in fact. Going Green. Green Living. Eco-consciousness. It seems odd when the topic is so important to me, but in light of the global uprising of reducing our footprint on the planet, I think I need to just write what I know so
