The Cozy Cabin nestled upon the Cedar Bay lakeshore is open for another season.
Friends of Cedar Bay volunteers Mike and Nancy McCord, along with their children, opened the Cozy Cabin for the first time this winter on Dec. 28.
“It was really a last minute decision,” Nancy McCord confided. “We looked ahead at the weather yesterday and saw it was going to be maybe minus five; our family was itching to get out so we messaged the group (Friends of Cedar Bay on Facebook) and everybody was happy for us to open the cabin.”
The Cozy Cabin will be open Saturdays from noon to 4 p.m. throughout the winter until the end of March, weather permitting.
McCord said people are welcome to walk, snowshoe, ski, fat bike, kick sled, or snowmobile out to the cabin.
The Cozy Cabin is located approximately one kilometre down the trail from the Cedar Bay parking lot and horse stables.
“We have a pot of water boiling on the stove. People can help themselves to make some hot chocolate or tea. If people have reusable mugs, it would be great if they could bring them. There’s also a bin for donations if people wish to make one,” McCord said.
A new stove has also been installed in the Cozy Cabin this year.
“There’s a nice fire pit outside as well and we’ve been finding some families have been bringing hot dogs and marshmallows and roasting them over the fire as well,” she added.
The Cozy Cabin she said is a great place to get warm, play a board game or a game of cards, catch up on a good book, connect with old friends and make new ones.
“We also have 10 sleds that Cedar Bay has bought and there’s a great little sliding hill here as well,” she stated.
More than 50 people visited the Cozy Cabin on Dec. 28. The cabin’s opening had only been posted on Facebook the day before.
