We do not have an internet connection or wifi, Rogers cell users can use their iphone or Galaxy for a hot spot and connect thru that (We don't know how to do that, but apparently it is not that hard. Says the guy with a shed full of old rusty tools that he thinks are cool.) There is excellent Rogers connectivity but no Telus service.
We have a full time caretaker and maintain the cottage thoroughly. For example - just replaced the hot water tank with a new, larger unit! (June, 2014) Questions or issues?

Guest AccessOur guests are welcome to use everything except the boat and the windsurfing gear. A 1997 Lexus ES300 is available if desired, for a fee. (Airport pick-up too.)
There is a new Keurig coffee machine stored in the small bedroom closet. Guests are welcome to this or the 1970 model in the kitchen. There is no way to drain the water out of the Keurig, so it is best to run several large cups of hot water until the machine calls for a refill. Interaction with GuestsWe are not at Moon Over Jessica when guests are. Questions or issues? Pauline - (email hidden) (phone number hidden) or (phone number hidden) (cell) or Sean - (email hidden). (phone number hidden). My number is (phone number hidden). The NeighborhoodQuiet, peaceful and serene. Our cottage is on the shore; a lodge is next door on one side and the other neighbour is a private cottage. Moon Over Jessica is surrounded by spruce, poplar and birch trees and lots of bushy understory which offer good privacy, especially in the summer. Getting AroundThe White Lake store is about a half hour walk along the highway or a five minute drive. Bring your bikes. Other Things to NoteThe cottage was built in 1950 (without power tools!) and while it has been enlarged once, it retains much of the original material and furnishings -- it's a true Mid-Century Modern home!
Last . . . thank you to our 2014 renters! We feel fortunate to have had such great people share Jessica Lake with us. Everything went smoothly (*pretty* smooth ;-) just like years prior) and we are looking forward to 2015. Guests who return understand that we are not Marriott Over Jessica, and appreciate the cottage as we do - complete with some shortcomings and quirkiness.
