About Us



Thank you for stopping by our “Smart Cottage”. A website/blog that mainly talks about the ups and downs of owning a waterfront cottage and how my husband and I are trying to make this our “smart” cottage.

You see, 6 years ago, in our late 30’s and early 40’s, we boldy and maybe blindly jumped in and just follow our hearts to embark into this journey to the unknown called cottaging. Knowing nothing, from how the mortgage criteria in buying a second property works, to how to care for a waterfront property.

So calling this our smart cottage is really refering to us struggling to be a “smart cottager”. So please follow our escape to the unknown as we slowly but surely making it from a beginner to a pro cottager! 🙂



I may not be a professional mortgage broker or real estate broker, but in the last 6 years, I have come to understand some insights about all things cottages. Hopefully, I can hellp you avoid some mistakes that have cost us money, and anguish during the entire process.



You may have expectations and thought nothing can go wrong. Trust me, a lot can go wrong. I will be sharing everything, the good, the bad, the ugly!

Join us and we will try our very best to help you turn your cottage into a “smart” cottage. If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.


All the best,
