Back to School. Back to Work. Back to ‘Normal’?

There is a crispness to the air, the leaves are making their annual change from green to gold and things are slowing down to accommodate a return to our non-summer schedules. For some, we mourn this time of year as the season changes; for others it is a cozy, productive time as we ready for the impending snow. Perhaps you are celebrating the bountiful harvest that the season brings, and you are canning and preserving for the cooler months. Cottage Country has so many thriving farms, and markets abound – all selling fresh veggies, fruits and meats. Now is a great time to visit vendors – a last hurrah at wandering market aisles outdoors. 

Welcome to the Fall issue of Cottage Country Lifestyle Magazine. We welcome you to the fresh new season and invite you to get cozy, relax and give this newest issue a read-through. Here at the Magazine, we pride ourselves on keeping content local to Cottage Country. We strive to make a reader friendly Magazine that can stay on your coffee table and direct you to the very best businesses and locales in the region.

“Winter is an etching, Spring a watercolour,
Summer an oil painting and Autumn a mosaic of them all”
