Man of the House


Another fantastic July weekend came and went with happy campers, happy visitors and happy chipmunks. Wait a minute. How can you tell if a chipmunk is happy? Well he keeps coming back to visit. Kind of like our campers and cottagers but without the sunflower seed bribes. One of the reasons Timothy the Chipmunk comes back? The man of the house – our main man Logan.

This week we had an unexpected phone call from a local gas station. A man and his son, travelling from Manitoba to Parry Sound, had encountered problems with their boat trailer. The axle had broken. Yikes! We all know how that much sucks. Well of course we said come on over and we’ll be happy to set you up until you can get your axle fixed. We didn’t know what time they’d be arriving so we went about our business and happened to go off property.

When we got back, the Manitoba man had already arrived and set up his trailer on our slot by the beach. Yeah! Safe and sound – success! But the first thought was – how the heck did he know to go there? The answer? Logan. He knew he was the man of the house while we were gone and had greeted our emergency guest and got him set up on the right slot. How is that for completely awesome? We couldn’t be more proud of our son!

Within a day our Manitoba guest was ready to get on his way and offered payment for the slot which we politely refused. Here’s how we roll: we’re here to make an honest living by providing folks with a safe, fun, relaxing and homey camping and cottage experience. It’s what drives us. It’s what makes us happy. But if you honestly need help? Then part of just living as a human on this planet is helping those in need. We were happy to help our new friend continue safely on his travels and become a part of their summer memories. After all, isn’t a Lighthouse supposed to bring you safely to shore so you can continue on with other adventures? We think so too 🙂

Stay tuned for more Tales from the Lighthouse!

Yours at the Lighthouse,
