25 scenes that prove winter cottaging is the best

While most of our photo contest submissions are from the sunny days of summer, we do also get some shots from those cottagers who head to the lake year-round. While the warmer months are very nice for cottaging, there are plenty of things to love about winter stays.

To celebrate this often overlooked cottage season, we’ve collected some of our favourite winter scenes submitted by our readers. They capture everything from stunning snowscapes to ice sports to brilliant lake views.  So go on, explore some winter wonderlands.
