As I'm sure you're all aware, there's been this virus around which has put us all on lockdown. While restrictions are slowly being lifted for some businesses to open, others remain closed. At this time, due to the nature of short term rentals, we remain closed by provincial order. Crown land camping is still banned, so even if you could go out on a houseboat, you couldn't camp anywhere.
Gwen has been attending many, many meetings online with different tourist associations and business associations to stay current on all that is happening and changing, and it seems to be in flux daily. While we hope for good news to be able to open soon, all signs seem to point to us being several weeks away from that point yet. If you have a booking coming up, we'll call you closer to the time to let you know the state of things and whether we'll be allowed to serve you or not.
There is nothing we want more than to see all our customers again! But we also want to make sure you will remain as safe as possible during your stay. We are following cleaning protocol guidelines closely so when we can open we'll be ready. Some are a little scary, like suggestions to leave rooms clear for 5 days - I don't know how we could do that without picking and choosing who can come.. Other guidelines may include a deep clean with a 24 hour wait before occupation. All these things are still in discussion stages and will have to go through a couple stages before we will be notified of what must be done. This makes us pretty sure that it'll be awhile before seasonal short term rental businesses are opened.
We can only wait and see. We know you want to come, and we want you to come as well, but until the province allows us to open, we're all just wishing this year was like any other...
Rest assured, in the meantime we'll be getting ready for the moment the province gives us good news! Until then, we’ll keep practicing social distancing so we’re healthy and ready to serve you!

So Many Options with a Houseboat...
Why are houseboats so popular?
Families enjoy the freedom to move from location to location when the kids want a new section of land to explore. When it's raining, they can always be on the move to a new campsite while the family is busy playing games.
Couples look forward to tucking away into a secluded bay for some time together surrounded by Temagami's peaceful nature, or adventuring into an unknown area to see new sights.
Fishermen love the fact that they don't have to move far from their favorite fishing spot, or they can explore a large area without having to return a long distance to sleep for the night.
