Enjoy What is Left of Summer at the Cottage #GreatBlueResorts

The best memories of my childhood are of the weekends we would spend at the cottage. Never far from the lake and always surrounded by friends, we spent most summers just hanging out. We were very fortunate having a place we could go to ‘get away’ whenever we wanted. A place my friends were always welcomed and time just stood still. I miss those days and the slower pace of a family cottage. I often dream of owning a cottage myself as I know the kids would just love it.

We take a lot of road trips and spend most of our days outdoors. All year long you can find us being active and enjoying nature. We love to travel and check out new destinations but we also love to stay local. Enjoying the beauty that is within reach of us is perfect. Finishing up work on a Friday and driving less than an hour to somewhere special is always great. Being able to hang out and relax with no worries and connecting with our children makes me happy.

You and I can actually have this without breaking the bank.


The cottage lifestyle has evolved and changed over the years. There is a new alternative to the traditional cottage, it is cottage resort living.

Cottages designed and built with low maintenance in mind, with all the modern conveniences of home and a lake view. Cottages with resort-inspired amenities to enjoy, like golf, heated salt-water swimming pools, playgrounds and a recreation pavilion, a kids club, social activities and more.


Cherry Beach Resort in Prince Edward County Ontario is a cottage community like this, steps away from Sandbanks Provincial Park. Park model cottage ownership at Cherry Beach Resort starts at just $10,000 down and $379/month for a two-bedroom open-concept pre-owned model that’s only a few years old and like new. The highest priced three-bedroom 2016 model sells for just $139,900 with add-ons available with low interest financing available OAC. All models come with shingled rooftops, low-maintenance vinyl siding and windows and are fully furnished throughout with appliances, air conditioning and a choice of tasteful décor

Best of all no having to lug your stuff back and forth. No renting problems, no time share and pure enjoyment. Plus if you can not spend all of your summer there, hand the keys to your family to use it as well. If you want of course.

Swimming, campfires, sunsets and playing in the sand should be part of every child’s summer. This is what makes memories that last forever.

  1. I used to spend my summers on cape cod when I was a kid. My aunt had a cottage on the beach.

  2. That summer it over here! Hopefully at some point we can come check this place out!

  3. What great prices for cottages. I just took a look at their website and all I can say is wow. The cottages look amazing.

  4. I love getting away during the summer. Owning a cottage would be wonderful and the price is right.

  5. Catherine Sargent says

    This looks like a nice place to stay. I love how cute the cottage is. I will keep this in mind if we are in the area.

  6. That sounds like a lot of fun. That would be perfect for my family! My girls go back on the 29th, so not much time left here.

  7. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed or vacationed in a cottage. It sounds like a grand time!

  8. OMG, I would love to visit and vacation here. Looks like a great place to enjoy what’s left of summer. Thanks for the recommendation.

  9. It is almost over-so sad! I would love to go there for sure.

  10. Prince Edward County is so beautiful. I grew up only 30 minutes from it. I would love to spend the rest of summer at a cottage.

  11. We have been lucky to spend some time this summer at a cottage. Prince Edward County looks like a perfect spot to get away.

  12. Having a place to visit each summer is a wonderful treat. It is something to look forward to all year long and create amazing memories in while there.

  13. These sound dreamy. We don’t have cottages much here, but campin in the cabin is on the books soon!

  14. That sounds so relaxing. I love that you have modern conveniences but can slow life down a little.

  15. These sound great! I love vacationing by water and dream of having a cottage or cabin of my own some day. For the time being though, I’ll settle with a rental 🙂

  16. I certainly would not mind a quick getaway before back to school season. I bet this was a quaint and place to stay at.

  17. Cottage living is awesome, we used to go up north every summer to the cottage, but that was a very long time ago, but I remember the beauty and the peacefulness!!!

  18. This would be the perfect getaway before school goes back in session! I love the cottages super cute and great for away.

  19. My best memories of my childhood were also the time we spend at my grandfather cottage. My parents bought one when we were adult and I love spending my Holidays there. Wish I was closer and would have bought it when they sold it.

  20. I LOVE this idea! Affordable and fun. The locations are great and the cottages look perfect for a family.
