There seems to be some confusion between the lot of cottage country living quarters. You say tom-ay-to, we say tom-ah-to; British Columbians say cabin, Nova Scotians say cottage. In many cases the confusion is a case of contrasting coastal jargon, but in some cases there are distinct differences between backcountry dwellings. With chalet season upon us and cottage season on deck, we figure it’s about time to put the uncertainty to rest once and for all. Without further adieu, the Holiday Rentals Network presents a backcountry bible: a definitive guide to cottage country accommodations.
The winter season brings forth two species of travelers. At one pole is the ski bunny: a class of cold climate travelers who settle in ski country and have a soft spot for subzero sports. At the other is the the snowbird: a migrant species that sees snow and heads South, booking it straight to the beach.
CottageCountry.com does not separate the birds from the bunnies, as there is simply no single right way to do winter. Instead we’re laying out all the options, curating holiday rental collections that will meet your needs whether your cup of tea is a warm or cold port of call.
