Information for Cottage Owners

We are always anxious to add to our inventory of available rental cottages. Cottage Country Travel Services also offers a wealth of experience in the competitive, Ontario cottage rental market, eliminating the hassle and reducing the risk in the rental process. Our Ontario cottages enjoy high occupancy levels from year to year and generate significant income for our property owners.

If you own an Ontario cottage in Muskoka, Haliburton, Parry Sound, Georgian Bay or Kawartha that can be accessed by car and are considering renting, we invite you to contact our office at your earliest convenience. We have developed a comprehensive Information Package detailing our services to you, the cottage owner.

Benefits to the property owner:

  • We will visit your cottage to compile property information and take interior and exterior photos.

  • We will develop a detailed, on-line listing for your property that will include extensive property details and descriptions and make it available to a worldwide audience.

  • We will publish an extensive, high quality, photo album of your property.

  • We will update and maintain an up-to-date 'availability' calendar identifying the available rental periods for your cottage.

  • Our online Availability calendar allows each of our owners to have a different rate for every week of the year rather than set rates by season.

  • Our website allows our property owners to put a specific week(s) on 'Sale', showing the original rate, the discounted rate and the amount the rate has been reduced. These cottages are featured as 'Short Notice Rentals at Discounted Rates'.

  • The number of booked weeks at your cottage is kept private by virtue of our only noting 'Available' and 'Not Available' status.

  • We will handle on-line advertising on the internet and in other publications. Your property is constantly being promoted.

  • We save you money on long distance calls and are available to you on our Toll Free line.

  • You establish the rental criteria for your property ยท Your privacy is assured. Personal information is never posted on the Internet.

  • A security/damage deposit paid by the renter (and held until you have checked the cottage).

  • We collect appropriate deposits and require payment in full prior to occupancy.

  • We remit your part of the rental revenue to you during the week prior to each rental.

  • Rental income can help to offset ownership costs.

  • Routine follow-up with all booking parties for feedback.

  • Hassle free renting-we handle the paperwork and save you time, money and risk while providing the highest occupancy levels possible.

  • As a registered retail travel agency (License #4116075 TICO - Travel Industry Council of Ontario) we operate under strict guidlines, trust accounting and financial reporting to TICO.
