Not just for parties!
Really, how many extra years just this buy you, if you only have boat access, like most of our lake? So, the old neighbours are selling because they want a road-access cottage. Turns out that the market is stalled, and there are several cottages for sale on the lake, and I've also seen quite a few deserted cottages that are probably caught up in probate. This always happens when the sellers are looking at the past boom, and buyers are all sinking their money into Toronto condos. :) Don't know how long this will last.
