My Canadian friends told me it would be the ultimate Canadian experience. Spending the weekend in a cottage on the lake. We were invited to spend last weekend 3,5 hours north of Toronto, in a beautiful cottage on lake Joseph, lake Joe for friends hehe. Located in Northern Ontario, the lake is surrounded by cottages. A weekend full of barbecuing, roasting marshmallows in the fire (my favourite!), swimming, fishing and boating on the lake to peek at all the cottages and boathouses. Did you know a boathouse is a house for your boat(s) and not a houseboat (where you could live in)? Definitely a small cultural difference, or maybe something linguistic… Anyway, love the Canadian style! Every boat deserves a pretty garage.
