You can always tell a campfire is near, by the distinct smoky, woodsy, scent. It’s a smell that seeps into your pores and seems to attach itself to just about everything it comes into contact with. For cottagers, it’s a small price to pay for a perfectly toasted marshmallow.
A source of comfort on a summer’s evening or a cold winter’s day, campfires are a defining aspect of cottaging in Canada. Cottagers have found creative places to both enjoy the view of the lake and stay warm.
These photos of campfires from Cottage Life readers are guaranteed to trigger warm memories of gathering around the fire at the cottage.
