5 Tips For Enjoying Your Cottage In The Fall

We sure love our summers and as the weather turns to cool fall days, we can feel that longing for the hot days on the dock. But each season has its beauty making owning a cottage special year- round.

The combination of crisp, cool air with the changing colours of leaves makes the season a favorite for many of us. Here are five tips for enjoying your cottage in the fall:

1. Go for a nature hike.

Even the staunchest summer-lovers can’t deny the beauty of the fall season. With the leaves making their transitions from green to red, orange, yellow and brown, they beautify nature in ways that only happen at this time of year and on the east coast.

Going on a hike during the fall enables you take in the sights and sounds of nature without an abundance of insects hampering your fun. And the cooler weather is perfect for longer walks.

2. Build a campfire.

Who doesn’t love to roast marshmallows over a campfire? With October in full swing, it’s the absolute perfect time of year to gather around a fire to tell spooky ghost stories and partake in the deliciousness of S’mores.

The cool air of autumn makes sitting by the campfire an even greater delight. Be sure to check out our blog on how to build the best campfire ever!

3. Take the boat out on the lake.

Just because the temperatures are too low for you to go swimming, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the lake by your cottage. The fall offers many perfect days for little excursions over the water.

A paddle boat ride is a fun way to enjoy the water while also getting in some exercise. Swap the paddle boat out for your kayak or canoe for a little extra physical engagement.

4. Snap a pic for the ‘gram.

The sun is lower in the sky making the light golden warm, perfect for pictures. Instagram gives you the ability to quickly snap shots of you enjoying your cottage and sharing them with the public instantly. Coordinate family photos that incorporate the wonderful colours of the season in the background.

5. Safely remove your dock.

Our dock coupler system serves as a wonderful alternative to the traditional
dock couplers that require you to be in the water with hands between the dock pieces. Done. Easy.

With DockHinge you save a lot of time which is better spent enjoying the beauty of autumn’s changing leaves with your family and friends.
