Many people ask “Why rent a cottage when I can just book a room at a resort?”, but there are a multitude of reasons why you might want to consider the cottage route instead! Renting a cabin or cottage is a great way to de-stress and get away from the hustle and bustle of life while maintaining a comfortable home to rest in. It’s a place where you can bring the whole family to make memories that will last you a lifetime; no matter your age! From children, to grandparents, to even your pets, a cottage is a welcoming place for everyone. It’s a place where you can tell stories around the campfire while you snack on your s’mores and take walks through the woods to hear the sounds of chirping birds and bustling squirrels. Listed below are some of the top countries we would recommend renting a cottage in!

Ontario - Canada

Canada has long since been known for having the perfect setting for cottage life. Every season of the year, tourists and locals alike make their way to their respective get-away homes to enjoy the calming and laid back experience of cottage life. Ontario in particular is one of the most beautiful and accessible areas to rent a cottage due to its close proximity with four out of the five Great Lakes (Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie, and Lake Ontario). The peak season in Ontario for renting a cottage would be during the statutory holidays and also in the summer months - from June to late August. There are also benefits to visiting during the off-season as well, such as the volume of other people in the area will be lower so you will have more privacy. Regardless of what time of year you visit, Ontario’s beauty will never fail to impress you.

Northern Germany

A less conventional alternative to the cottage hot-spot of Canada would be Northern Germany. The Baltic Sea Coast in particular is renowned for its beautiful coast which includes tranquil shallow waters, gorgeous sandy beaches, and a gentleness that will lure you in and convince you to want to stay. A benefit to finding a little cottage or beach house on the coast of the Baltic Sea is also its proximity to the charming town of Stralsund. Stralsund is a historic town filled with rich culture and lovely architecture that will surely provide long-lasting memories.


If a lake-house is more your style, Switzerland has most places beat. The combination of forestry, huge mountains, and crystal clear waters will rejuvenate you in ways you never knew you needed. Be sure to check out the surrounding lake-houses near Lake Oeschinen, Lake Brienz and Lake Thun. There are dozens upon dozens of gorgeous lake rentals here with breathtaking scenery. Sparkling aqua-coloured waters, snow-capped peaks, accompanied by the fresh scent of spruce trees will surely be just what you need to unwind and enjoy nature’s beauty.
