There is nothing like relaxing dockside, basking in the warm summer sunshine as you dip your toes in the sparkling water below you to welcome summer. With the scent of campfires in the air and the sounds of children enjoying the outdoors, it is no wonder cottaging is a pastime enjoyed by many Canadians. With long weekends and summer holidays on the horizon, dreams of owning a cottage are growing, with many Canadians looking for alternative ways to finance their dreams of cottage and cabin ownership. Now that we have you day-dreaming about sunny afternoons spent on the water, there is no better time to introduce the 2016 re/max Recreational Property Report.
