From the Cottage Life guidelines:

Cottage Life is the magazine for and about water-based cottagers. Although most of our readers are based in Ontario, we welcome stories about cottages and cottaging in other parts  of Canada. We publish six issues a year: Spring, May, Early Summer, Summer, Fall, and Winter.

The magazine has a strong service slant, combining useful “how-to” journalism with coverage of the people, trends, and issues in cottage country. We run columns and shorter features on subjects such as boating, building projects, cottage design and architecture, nature, personal cottage experience, and environmental, political, and financial issues of concern to cottagers.
