The sunsets at Cross Paddle Retreat are always spectacular and often very different. It is enjoyable to view a new dramatic sunset each night. If you rent the cottage you do not have to be bored with the view.
After spending an enjoyable day canoeing on Cross Lake it is nice to relax on the deck, enjoying your favourite cottage beverage, and watch the beautifully colourful sunsets as the clouds dance across the lake.
Welcome to the Cross Paddle Retreat blog!
The first things we would like to show you on this blog are all the improvements we have made, since we purchased this rental cottage in July 2015.
We built deck and stair railings, we installed glass safety panels so everyone can enjoy the beautiful view of the lake, we added solar night lights to the dock and deck, and we extended the water intake pipe and updated the filter so that it is safe to drink. We also modernized the wood stove to meet current standards.
Next year we will invest in a bigger and better floating dock, and perhaps a few surprises to just make it better for cottage rentals at our summer vacation home. Please visit back and we will report on progress right here!
Our friend Rob came to help us build railings at the cottage at Cross Lake near Algonquin Park.
Parents also spent time consulting, working hard and cooking for us too!
Solar lights and pickets were installed around the perimeter of the deck railing.
Stair railings were built and made the stairs firmer and safer for everyone to enjoy a cottage rental in Algonquin Park.
Friends (Thank you Edgars and Santa!) came to help install tempered safety glass in our deck railing so renters (and us) can enjoy the glorious view of the Algonquin Park area, and cottage life in Ontario while still staying safe!
