It was a rainy afternoon in August and our second day at Parkbridge Resorts, Lakes of Wasaga. We were there for three nights as guests. The kids had a friend with them and I was wrestling with the urge to tell them all to get off their Nintendos when I heard my youngest daughter holler: “There’s something over there by the lake.” All three children threw their sandals on and they ambled towards the lake. That weekend we had already spied dozens of groundhogs, we’d been swimming multiple times, made our own fishing poles of twine and branches, spied many fish, played some board games, been mini golfing and picked up about 30 different frogs and toads. The rumour was that there was a beaver living in the bullrushes near the picturesque lake at Lakes of Wasaga. I followed after the kids with my iPhone in my hand, partly skeptical and a wee bit hopeful that they had found the fabled creature of the lake. I stared at a rock and was ready to leave, after all my mission had been accomplished anyways: the kids had dropped electronics to interact, investigate and explore the natural surroundings. As I turned, the rock moved. I have never ever seen a beaver up close before but there it was. It was unmistakably a beaver. The rumours were true. We didn’t believe it until we saw it for ourselves. That kind of describes the entire stay at a Parkbridge Resort Community. You won’t believe it until you are there.
Parkbridge, Canada’s leading owner and operator of land lease communities believes in affordable, comfortable and secure places to live, vacation and retire. Parkbridge has four types of properties: Cottage & RV Resorts, Retirement Communities, Family Lifestyle Communities & Marinas.
The cabins are clean and spacious. They are heated and safe and you can easily spend a week or two there as many have fully stocked kitchen areas. We found everything we needed. I even found a cork screw. So a family could easily sleep 5 to 6 in a cabin the size of the one we had. There are many nearby stores if you need to run out and grab some food to cook in the well equipped kitchen. There are also options to purchase a cabin as well. You can rent, or buy which makes this a really appealing way to manage a yearly family vacation or an entire season of glamping.
This is my kind of stay. Glamping in a gorgeous cabin, not too far from the beach, but also secluded enough to feel like you are away from the city. Looking to get away this summer at an affordable price? This is a great solution. Check out the resorts section on the Parkbridge website and browse the map, or search resorts by name: http://www.parkbridge.com/en-ca/Pages/CottageRVResorts.aspx
There are amenities for people of all ages and each community is unique in what it offers. Stay a week, a month, an entire summer or a whole season from April through to Thanksgiving. You can rest easy, relaxing all summer long when you know your property is being well maintained by the team at Parkbridge.
I know I am not the only one out there who has contemplated cottage ownership at one time or another but thought to themselves I am not sure I want to be driving every weekend to a cottage just to make sure the grass is cut and the water hasn’t overflowed and that nobody has broken in while I was away. At Parkbridge your home away from home is taken care of when you are away.
