About us

We are a young, married couple who live in Kitchener, Ontario. Both originally from small towns, it was our dream to own a piece of lakefront property away from the city. Through renting out BLISS, we are able to realize this dream. We also strive to contribute to our community, and one of the ways we do this is by offering up our cottage for free retreats to various charitable organizations throughout the year. By 2006, we also plan to incorporate local culture into our cottage by showcasing local artisans' work, which will be made available to interested renters. We hope you appreciate BLISS as much as we do!

Thanos and Jennifer Papastergiou
