Welcome to the Christmas Issue of Cottage Country!

The days have become shorter with a chill in the air; the snowy season is upon us. 

In Cottage Country, we have a lot to be thankful for as 2019 comes to a close. We are blessed to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful vistas in Canada – rich with wildlife and lake-life alike. Here at the magazine, we have a great team who work hard to support the best clients, and we look forward to a new year filled with innovative beginnings and strong business relationships, both old and new. We thank YOU, our readers, for a great year, and we look forward to coming full circle back to our roots in 2020 as a community publication you can rely on for feel good-news, information and interesting reads. 

With the Christmas Season upon us, we all become a little frazzled. Remember to take a walk in nature, enjoy the crisp days and the way the frost falls over our beautiful countryside; return home with a cold nose and rosy cheeks to get cozy with this newest issue of Cottage Country Lifestyle Magazine, and accept a change of pace. 

We encourage all of you to think about your community on a local level this season while shopping for those you love. Local spending with small businesses makes a world of difference in your community. Local dollars spent lend momentum to local infrastructure, and we all prosper in the end. Local shop owners are also most likely the ones to have that one-of-a-kind gift you’ve been searching for! Shop Local; Shop Cottage Country.

From our Cottage Country family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. May 2020 be filled with health, happiness and a good dose of time enjoyed by the lake – whether it’s a winter wonderland or summer paradise – with friends and family.
