Wahooooo, we are back in business as of June 11th. We are so looking forward to seeing everyone again. I hope this is the last time we have to shut down. Stay safe everyone. xo
May 13th 2021
We were very hopeful for the lock down being eased on May 20th. That was not meant to be. The Ontario stay at home order has been extended to June 2nd. We cannot wait for this to be over, and get back to business–which is taking care of all of you who want to get away for some peace and quiet. Our fingers are crossed! xo
December 23rd 2020
Here we go again. Our cottage rentals have been suspended until at least January 23rd, as per the provincial mandate. We hope to have clarification before that date to be able to notify people if the shutdown will be extended further. To keep everyone safe during the winter month rentals we have decided to implement a 4 night minimum with at least a 3 day vacancy between bookings. In the meantime, have a safe and wonderful Holiday season. xo
Sept 27th 2020
As the last of the summer and fall passes, we are now thinking about the winter. With the amount of work to clean and sanitize the cottages, we are implementing a 4 night minimum for the winter months. This will allow us to keep the cottages vacant for 3 days in between bookings to keep us all safer. We have a low season weekly rate, and will implement a 5 day special. Thank you so much for giving us the chance to host you.

It has been a long 3 months, but we have some GREAT news to share!
We are very happy to inform you that the Government of Ontario has announced that we will be able to open our cottages back up to our Canadian friends in the next coming weeks. To say we are thrilled is an understatement.
It is incredibly important to all of us at The White Pines to ensure that we are able to provide a holiday for you that is both safe and peaceful.
We know how much you are all needing some time away.
Over the next few days, we will be receiving guidance from the Ontario government as to how we can provide a safe oasis for you all. We already have many safeguards in place, but we will be taking every precaution to uphold and protect the safety of all of you.
For those who have reservations already, you will be hearing from us shortly to go over any changes. For anyone who is looking for some peace and serenity after these challenging months – please contact us – we still have some openings available for the remainder of the summer.
And to our US friends, we can’t express how much we miss you. We love you all and hope that you are all keeping healthy and safe. We are looking so forward to seeing you again as soon as the border opens.
Love you guys!
Shawn and Valerie xoxo (virtually, of course!).
