Cottage Country Style Bedrooms Design With White Furniture

Cottage country is a common name in the Canadian province of Ontario, as well as other regions of the country, for areas that are popular locations for recreational properties such as cottages and summer homes. Cottage country is often socially, culturally, economically, and politically distinct from other rural areas in that it is populated by a notably higher concentration of urban vacationers and residents who have an affinity for the outdoors in contrast to more traditional rural populations that are largely absent of “city folk” (although, this distinction tends to be more noticeable in the East than the West). Any major population centre may have its own popular “cottage country” area. The name is sometimes applied locally in vernacular use. For example, Toronto, Ontario residents might say “I am heading up to cottage country this weekend,” which is locally understood to be referring to Muskoka, the Kawarthas, or the Haliburton area. On the other hand, a speaker from Ottawa would use the same phrase to denote the Rideau Lakes area or parts of the Outaouais.
