Aisling Lakehouse

Ready to feel the rush of a winter?  Do you remember that feeling as a kid? It’s still there as an adult! Our family has been enjoying winter fun right at the Lakehouse such as hot tubbing, sledding and snowshoeing. It’s been an adventure exploring the woods, searching for animal tracks and learning to identify the tracks we find. Yesterday we discovered Long Tailed Weasel  tracks . . . and the kids even saw it run  in the trees nearby. Deer, Coyote and Fox tracks are a common site on the driveway (which apparently the animals use as much as us!).

Don’t lose the feeling of anticipation this year. We have posted some special winter rates to ensure you and your family and friends can get away to enjoy the Lakehouse this winter.

There’s just something great about being outdoors with your family. We love sitting at the firepit and gazing at the stars above! We are loving the new outdoor lights too, as we can make a dash for the hot tub in all sorts of weather(and see where we are running!) and enjoy the view from safe inside the gazebo. Hopefully the next time you are up at the Lakehouse you will make some great memories in one of our favourite areas.

Christmas is here and  hopefully you will enjoy some time with your family over the holidays. New memories will be made and others will be recalled. Maybe a few laughs about last summer at the cottage, who fell in the lake…or the canoe that tipped out Grandpa! So many great times at the lake. We still fondly remember “Chippy”…our first family chipmunk who actually would eat right out of our hand when visiting the cottage. Or what about the first time that one of our kids only wore 1 outfit all week long because her older cousin gave it to her as a hand me down. The infamous “cottage outfit” is part of our family forever.

It’s not too early to start thinking about summer time with your family and friends. The Lakehouse is a great place to get the whole family together… Grandparents, Kids and Grandchildren. There’s room for all of you to stay in comfort.

We hope to see you at the lakehouse next summer and we hope you have a great Christmas with your family!

Merry Christmas From our Family to Yours

Love The Aulds

 

Canadians already love summer cottage rentals…but how about exploring what the cottage has to offer in the winter! Learning to embrace winter at the cottage offers you even more opportunity to escape the city and head to the lake for some true R&R.

Snowshoeing offers an amazing time of refreshing, not to mention a great cardio workout. Finding your way through the woods, unhindered by bushy trees and leaves that block your vision gives a feeling of accomplishment and adventure. Even though you know the land has been explored before you can’t help feel like you’re the first one here…after all those are your lone tracks behind you!

Outdoor Hot Tubbing in the winter has got to be a non-official Canadian Sport. Watching snow fall on the forest around you, while the steam quietly embraces you just feels good!  Sore muscles are soothed and great conversations are brewed in the hot tub. Wanting quality time with a friend or family member? Try this great “sport” together.

Hope to see you at the (frozen) Lake!

Celebrate Christmas at the Cottage with your family, when you rent 1 or all 3 cottages at Aisling Lakehouse! There’s just something wonderful about being in the woods around Christmas. Towering pines that surround the lakehouse make you feel like the outdoors has been specially decorated for your stay…thankfully they stay up all year. The cottages are simply decorated for the Holidays. A cozy, fireplace ensures you are comfortable during the epic family fun that always takes place at the cottage.

The Moon and Starlit sky make your run to the outdoor hot tub a beautifully lit adventure. Snowshoe rentals can be arranged and in your cottage on arrival so you can fully explore the outdoors. See if you can find deer, moose, raccoon and squirrel tracks during your hike.

Everything at the cottage is ready…we’re just waiting on you! Book your stay today!

Maybe it’s the Christmas decorations? Maybe the sudden need for the glow of the fireplace? Maybe it was the lake suddenly freezing over last week with a glassy finish that just begged to be skated on…. The last week has built my anticipation for winter cottage activities!

If you’ve ever thought about renting a cottage in the winter, then be sure to check out the 4 amazing all-inclusive retreats that we’ve planned for you! Winter cottaging at it’s best…even the hot chocolate is included!

This winter the Lakehouse is serving up 4 different retreats so that you can embrace all things Canadian…snowshoeing, exploring, relaxing in the outdoor hot tub (rolling in the snow on a dare!), curling, skiing, and more. Women get the most options…sorry boys….as 3 of the retreats cater just to them. The Women Winter Getaway will be a great long weekend with the perfect mix of activity and relaxation. The Active Women’s Winter Weekend is all ACTION…non stop…all weekend! Just Mom & Me 2017 focuses on the important relationship between mothers and their daughters. Looking for a co-ed getaway? The winter outdoor weekend is for gals and guys.  Adventure and Learning unite with a focus on the uniqueness of the Georgian Bay area.

Whatever you decide this winter,  there’s so many ways to embrace the upcoming winter wonderland.

Hope to see you at the Lake!
