Every day I hear how important the internet is to have when away at the cottage. Some maybe heading to a cottage to escape that constantly connected feeling while others may have to work to do and simply can’t completely escape from their city lives. As I type this I’m thinking to myself, yeah, I could go a week without wifi, but then I think, what if I also didn’t have access to Facebook and email through my smart phone? Could I do it? Of course. Would I want to? Not a chance. I’m a marketing coordinator, and being connected, well, that’s just who I am. So when I go away on vacation, internet access is something I want. No, I don’t need it, but, vacations are supposed to be full of things you like doing.
As cottage rentals become more and more like hotels and resorts, services such as high speed internet and wifi are just one of the many extras guests are looking for. As time moves forward, more and more cottages are adding a small amount of internet bandwidth to each booking, allowing guests to work, browse webpages and reply to emails.
Most of the time, watching YouTube videos or movies on Netflix won’t be possible because internet usage is limited, often to one gigabyte per week. Please see some of CLRM’s cottages below that have internet access:
