High Speed Internet at the Cottage - No Way!

This is the reaction we get from some people when we say we have high speed wireless internet available at Beauview.
>>> Why would you want high speed internet at the cottage when you are on holidays? (other than to do work!)

In fact, for those who bring their laptop computers, there's lots of uses to enhance their holiday experience.

The first use is getting up to the minute weather. Our weather has been very changeable this Summer. When planning their day, our guests have logged on to the Environment canada website for the latest weather forecast and also the radar website which is updated every 10 minutes! On the radar website, you can see what the weather pattern has been over the last hour to see whats coming our way.

Some guests have looked at the Algonquin Park website before heading off on a hike. Others have visited the Algonquin Theatre and Huntsville Festival of the Arts websites looking for what's on in area entertainment.

Guests have logged onto the Baysville marina website to see what boat rentals are available and the rates.
There's Santas Village and Sportsland and the new Eaglecrest Aerial Park - The Ultimate Treetop Adventure.websites. Both are closeby in Bracebridge

Others have kept in touch with family and friends through Email and MSN messenger.... even to check up on how their dog or cat is doing while they are away.

These are just a few of the uses.

And MOST IMPORTANT - If you get an email message from your work place - DON'T answer it!
