Spring Thaw – Where Are YOU?

Last year at this time we had lots and lots and lots of water creeping up from Netley – and this year we had a long walk on the Creek. As lovely as it is – let’s get a move on – if we can’t fish, ski, or sled  – let’s seem some beauty in the flowers, trees and grass – – that’s what I say any way…

This picture (of my crazy friends last year) shows the difference from April 1, 2017 to April 1, 2018.



Changes from November 2014 – November 2017 – just a wee sweet memory now….

In 2014 we took the plunge and said a sad goodbye to our 2 bedroom 750 square foot adorable but falling down around our ears cottage.  It was bittersweet!Cottage and Excavator

Now to have this sweet beach house helping us create memories we couldn’t be happier.  We have wonderful times with family and friends but also get to host wonderful guests regularly.  With our 6 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and rustic floors, we have comfort without worry,  closeness and yet privacy, all amenities yet cottage feel. cropped-panorama-may-2016.jpgThis November we can finally and happily say we have had all the family see and spend some time at the cottage and we welcome all guests from close and far.  It’s going to be a great season of bonfires, creek fishing, skating, skiiing, or sledding!


It all started with a frozen well, then a frozen holding tank, then a freezing me, then a leaky roof – we loved loved loved our Peaceful Haven.  Its 800- square feet, its plywood floors, its lime green bedroom carpet, its rustic original light covers.  What wasn’t there to love…..THE MAINTENANCE.  The amount of not so relaxed time we had spending there.  So after some consults with builders we were convinced we had to bid adieu to the adorable place that had granted us so many memories.

Well here we are 3 summers into our new Peaceful Haven and the enjoyment we have had with our time there and our wonderful renters cannot be expressed enough!

Fall time is here – have you found your spot for your “ME” time, or for some family time away from the hustle and bustle.  Check out what we have to offer and for the 2017 months left we are offering 25% off rates!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving to all and may your time with friends, family, co-workers – whomever it may be – be special and peaceful!


This time of year makes me so grateful for so much.  The transition from summer to fall to winter seems to bring a renewed sense of change – changes for the good.  Our new cottage is such a “Peaceful Haven” to enjoy this change, its changes, and the seasons changes.

If you need a get away – for yourself, your family, maybe a gift for Christmas or other for someone that you know that can use a break – this is the time to take advantage of our newly constructed cottage!

2014 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 10,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.


Peaceful Haven is getting an exciting facelift see our REnewAL page for details!!!


I know the leaves are just falling – and it is beautiful and hard to think that snow and or ice fishing are just around the corner – but you better be ready.  Peaceful Haven is the cottage to hang your parka at, sit around the woodstove and discuss your great catch of the day; or your great sled ride!  Only a phone call, email or text can get you set up for a great stay away from the rush and roll of the city!


WHY NOT – it’s a gorgeous fall.  Have you thought of entertaining the family at the cottage.  Ahhhhhhh – leaves, water views, fires, roasting marshmallows, games, family time – yea – WHY NOT?
