These pioneers had a vision of what snowmobiling could become and set about to establish a network of trails.. As the time progressed so did snowmobiling popularity. In the early 80's, Clyde & Isabel Saunders, avid snowmobilers) donated the materials required to build a clubhouse, a place, Clyde & Isabel reckoned, where snowmobilers on the Paudash trail system could rest, chat with other snowmobilers and get warm. Paudash leased a parcel of land and the Saunders' dream became a reality.

Although a power boat may not be provided in your rental, many local marinas and outfitters' stores do rent fishing and ski boats. As certain watercrafts are provided (sailboat, windsurfer, paddleboat, canoe, kayak) it is your responsibility to ensure that all rules, laws, regulations and safe boating practices are followed. We advise that you obtain a hydrographic map if you are boating on unfamiliar waters. For more information on boating regulations and safety call the Canadian Coast Guard at 1-800-267-6687 or visit their web site through our links page.
There is a $5.00 administrative charge per call if any calls are billed to the cottage phone on top of the cost of the call. These charges will be deducted from your security deposit if necessary. Bring a cell phone or calling card.
At the cottage, you will find a copy of an individualized COTTAGE INFORMATION FOLDER, containing the "Household Rules" (emergency numbers, cleaning checklist, garbage disposal and septic information, etc.) Please read through the "Household Rules" as soon as you arrive as you are responsible for following them! The location of marinas, local stores and attractions, fishing and other tourist information, will also be provided to make your stay more enjoyable. Please read and follow the information and instructions for the cottage. If you are unable to find this folder, please contact us by 5:00 p.m. the day of your arrival.
Although we have weekly maid service, the cottage must be left thoroughly clean and tidy before you depart. This means that a thorough cleaning must be done by you and/or your party prior to your departure! A cottage cleaning checklist can be found in the Cottage Information package at the cottage. As well, DO NOT leave any garbage behind. All garbage is to be taken with you and NOT left at the cottage. Deductions from your security deposit will result if the above is not adhered to. Any consumables should be replaced (i.e., BBQ propane).
The cottage owner is responsible for checking the cottage between rentals. If there is a problem or emergency while you are at the cottage, please contact the owner or the alternate contact. This information will be provided at the cottage.
RESPECTING OUR NEIGHBORS. Our cottage property shares a bay with six cottages, Some are close friends. It is important to respect our neighbor’s privacy and quiet enjoyment of their properties. Sound travels easily unobstructed across the water and engulfs everyone in the bay. Loud screaming, yelling and constant crying and whining is not appreciated by anyone who has come to cottage country “to get away from it all”.

For weekly rentals arrival time is 12:00p.m. Saturday and departure time is 3 p.m. Friday

Directions and keys will be sent out a few weeks prior to your vacation.

Generally, security deposits are mailed out 14 days after the departure date, but may be held until the telephone bill and Pay-Per -View Movies bill has cleared.

The cottages are equipped with pots, pans, dishes, glasses, cups and cutlery and lines already. Features such coffee maker, microwave, etc. are available at cottage (see AMENITIES). The following is a list of suggestions of what to bring on your cottage holiday:
Drinking water - the cottage runs off a filtered well. It is still a good idea to use bottled drinking water. A water cooler with large jugs of water are provided replacements can be purchased at the grocery stores throughout cottage country. Be aware that water wells can run dry through overuse (showers, laundry, etc.); practice conservation.
Linens - Sheets, pillowcases, blankets and pillows are at the cottage. You should bring your own beach towels.
Life jackets - at the cottages there are life jackets provided, but in order for a life jacket to work - it must fit properly; therefore, you should bring your own. One approved life jacket or PFD is required for each person on board any boating vessel.
