Ontario Cottage Rental
Amenities Provided by Ontario Cottage Rentals
If you haven't been to an Ontario cottage rental before, you probably wonder what amenities are there. This type of accommodation actually offers much more than you'd think. They are definitely not old houses where you won't find anything. They are maintained as comfortable places for tourists to feel like home and relax. After all, the owners want tourists to recommend their cottage and to come back, so they provide everything they can. The costs are significantly lower than those required by a hotel, so it's a win-win situation. Actually, if you do have enough finances, check out the luxury ones.
Each cottage is different and there are no standards. But there are common amenities and deluxe ones. Ontario has over 250,000 lakes, making it the proud owner of over one third of the world's fresh water. That's indeed impressive. So are the cottages that are all placed near a body of water.
The family area amenities include TV, DVD, washer, dryer, fireplace, air conditioning and internet connection. Some might have a billiard table, flat screen TVs, cards or boardgames. When it comes to bedrooms, each property enlists the number of beds for each type (king, queen, double, twin, single, bunk or sofa). The kitchen is equipped with fridge, cutlery, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, dishwasher, pots and pans and sometimes even a stove. So everything you need to prepare meals for your family or friends.
The outdoor amenities are usually a rowboat, a paddle boat, a ping-pong table, a barbecue grill, a kayak, a canoe and outdoor furniture. These are all provided for free by the owner. By request you could get a motor boat or life jackets. Luxury ones can include extras such as water coolers, several TVs, Jacuzzi, badminton, swimming raft, waterslide, pianos, darts, hot tubs, wine coolers, beach volleyball, or even party islands.
Some are winterized, wheelchair accessible or have a proximity to skiing too. Summer activities in the nearby areas include all-terrain vehicles, hiking, mountain climbing, public beach, water sliding, windsurfing, horseback riding, mountain biking, golf, karting or fishing. There also are recreational winter activities for winterized ones such as ice skating, snowmobiling, skiing or hockey. The parking space is usually according to the number of bedrooms. Most cottages have 3-4 bedrooms. Big ones can shelter even 20 people so you can even book it for a big party.
