Cottage Watch



Your cottage is your haven: the place to unwind and relax, to enjoy time with friends and family, to get a change of pace from your usual routine. The last thing you need is a nasty surprise greeting you upon your arrival. It can certainly spoil your vacation to discover that you have no heat or water, or that your cottage has sustained weather-related damage, or that you have been the victim of vandalism or theft. Some form of wildlife may have invaded your space, or you may find your pathway blocked by a fallen tree.


All of our visits are documented; and, if we find any issues, we will follow up with the instructions you give us. This could include notifying the appropriate authorities, hiring local contractors for repairs, or acting as the local contact for your alarm system.

Your insurance company may require regular inspections, particularly in the case of long absences, to assure you of comprehensive coverage. Please check with them to discuss the implications of our services.


Our experienced staff and local knowledge can assure you that your visits to the cottage are always a source of pleasure, leaving you secure in the knowledge that your property is safe and functional. We would be very happy to set up an appointment to discuss our services.
