The weather’s getting warmer and you know what that means… It's cottage season! Whether you’re getting ready to move into a cottage for the first time, or you just want to spruce up your old cottage with some new stuff, here are 8 things you need for your cottage this summer! PS. Everything can be found on Amazon and if you hire movers, they’ll move it to your cottage for you!
Once you’ve finished unpacking, you’ll be ready to sit back and relax now that it’s cottage season. What better way to hang out than to literally hang in a hammock! If you have lots of trees on your property, a regular hammock will work perfectly, but if not you can always get a hammock with a stand.
- Beverage dispenser
Whether you need a big supply of sangria for happy hour or want homemade lemonade on hand at all times, getting a drink dispenser that’ll fit in your fridge is the perfect addition to your cottage essentials. All you have to do is fill it up with your favourite drink and pour away!
- Marshmallow roasting sticks
There’s nothing better than pulling up to the fire at the end of a long day on the lake. Especially if you’re munching on roasted marshmallows. Make sure you stock up on roasting sticks so nobody has to take turns!
- Inflatable Water Chair
Sometimes laying on a dock just doesn’t cut it on a hot summer day. Make sure you invest in an inflatable chair so you can get your tanning in while avoiding heat stroke. Pro tip: get one with cup holders so you can stay hydrated (with water or a more fun drink)!
When you think about it, there are a lot of little things to move to a cottage, but if you hire movers to help you, it’ll save you a lot of hassle!
- Waterproof bluetooth speaker
Keep the vibes immaculate with a bluetooth speaker you can bring on the dock or boat! But make sure you get a waterproof one so it can handle the splash zone.
- Solar String Lights
Speaking of immaculate vibes… Buy some solar fairy lights to put around your deck. They can handle being left out in the rain and you don’t even need to plug them in! They’re solar powered!
- Mosquito repellent coils
Don’t let the fear of mosquito bites keep you inside your cottage every summer night! Try these mosquito repellent coils to keep the bugs at bay.
- YETI Tumbler
All cottage owners know you don’t bring your glassware outside. So, make sure you buy some tumblers that 1. Won’t break and 2. Will keep your drinks hot (coffee) or cold (everything else)!
Moving into a new cottage or moving in for the summer season can be difficult, especially if your place is located pretty off the grid. Nobody wants to make a bunch of trips taking loads of furniture and boxes. Your best bet? Hire movers so you can do it all in one day! And if you’re not excited about putting your furniture together when it gets there, our Mates can do that for you too. Worry less about moving to your cottage, and more about sitting yourself on the dock with a cold drink!
