Other things you need to know:

– The longer you stay, the less The Cottage in Hills costs on a per-night basis.  We encourage leisurely vacation stays of a week or more with our stay 6 nights and get your 7th night free special offer.
– In winter, we incur considerable cost to keep the Cottage road plowed, provide firewood and pay for the extra hydro-electric heating cost, thus we only take bookings of one-week, minimum.
– We are open year-round.  Periodic closures for maintenance are noted on the calendar below.
– We are pet friendly, dog(s) only.  Check with the manager about your pet.   There is a  $10/night/pet fee.
– Extra guests (more than 2) are $20/night/person.
– The cottage sleeps 6 guests (one queen bed, two double beds).  We have occasionally added a 7th person on a cot (best for a child).

Cottage in Hills is pet-friendly
The Cottage in Hills is fido-friendly, dogs love it here!

Pets:  The pet fee is $10/night/dog.  The Cottage in Hills is dog friendly (one dog, maybe two if well-behaved, let’s talk) with advance permission from your host.  If you are traveling with your dog please contact us to discuss whether the Cottage in Hills will be suitable for your dog’s needs.  We love dogs but for the benefit of all our guests we have a strict pet policy to ensure the Cottage stays in good condition.  No cats or any other type of pet.

Weddings:  We welcome small weddings — with prior permission from your host (extra fees apply).   The front garden area is lovely for a small ceremony but the Cottage  is not large enough to host the reception (we can help you arrange this elsewhere).

Honeymoons:  Bingo!  The Cottage in Hills makes a lovely honeymoon accommodation for newlyweds… it is very private and has everything you’ll need to enjoy your honeymoon.

Reunions & Parties:  Depends on the size of your group.  The Cottage is not suitable for large parties, stags or large family reunions as it sleeps only 6 guests.  But it is suitable for a multi-generational family get-together, a girls’ weekend, or for a group of friends planning a joint vacation.

Access for the disabled:  The Cottage in Hills is not wheelchair accessible but depending on circumstances we will do our best to accommodate guests with limited mobility… please call your host Lorna at 250-358-2722 to discuss this.  We’ll make every effort.

Shoulder seasons:  Our affordable rate and 2-night minimum encourage weekend getaways.  It’s the perfect time of year for a personal retreat, a couples getaway or mini-family-reunion (6 people max.).  Spring is lovely with blooms bursting forth in late April and autumn is sunny and glorious well into October.  In fact, September and October are our favourite months here in Hills.
