Bloggie discount for April 2022

Happy April Fools Day.   Did you play any tricks on anyone?

What is happening in Jackman in April?  Pretty much nothing. You cannot ice fish, nor open water fish, snowmobile trails are close and ATV trails are not open yet. You could try hiking but your feet will either get muddy or you slide on the snow that still remains on the ground.

BUT you can get away from reality for a few days, play cards with a friend, cook a “gourmet”  (LOL) meal in the cabin or order a Pizza from Bishops, watch a sunset from your cabin, sit out on the deck as the many birds migrate through the area this month, perhaps even watch “ice out” on Big Wood.  Sometimes this is all we need.

SO here is our April Bloggie discount.  Stay 3 nights and we will take 50% off of one night. Usual rules apply for any blog discount: you must mention you saw this on our blog and only cash (or check) will be accepted.  Give us a call.

March 2022 trail report

It looks like this weekend is the last hurrah for this years riding.  There is still snow out there but most clubs are reporting some bare spots.

We had a dusting of snow this morning in town but then turned to sleet and some rain.   The forecast for the week is also warming during the day with coll nights.

Then again, Mother nature has her way.  We could still get a snow storm in April.

It was a great season all in all.  Thank you to those who stayed with us and a special thanks to the Border Riders Club and the landowners.

See you next year.

Ice Out Contest 2022

Big Wood update as of March 19, 2022.  Here is a cam shot from this afternoon.

Just to let you know what is going on out on Big Wood so you can choose the best guess for ice out. Yesterday, with the warmer temps and rain, our fisherman were sloshing on a lot of water but they said it is still about 3 feet thick.

Are you ready for the 2022 Ice Out Contest?

It was 40 yesterday and raining. Today down to 30s and snowing so your guess is as good as mine.

So how this works:
1. Choose your date and time that you think the ice will go out on Big Wood. Choosing a time is helpful if multiple people choose the same date.  The person closest to the time will win.

2. Add a comment to this post with your best guess. A comment on Facebook will not be entered. We can only accept one entry per/email.

3. The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 15th, 2022. Watch our webcam at www.cozycovecabins.com for signs of change.

The winning date will be what the Town of Jackman records as the ice out date and time for 2022.

The winner will get 50% off one night when they stay with us 2 or more days or 1 full night free if they stay 4 or more days. This discount will expire December 31, 2022.  New this year, you will also win a Cozy Cove Cabins hoodie.

Hello March 2022

All in all, the winter season has been almost back to normal.  Yes we have these crazy warm days then it gets cold again.  We had rain yesterday and now it is snowing again. The forecast is for 2 inches or so.  Luckily we have a good base so they are still riding.  Just watch out for those icy corners.

If you are coming up this weekend, be sure to stop in at the Northland for the Border Riders Club auction.  It is always  lot of fun.

For the rest of the month, anyone who stays with us,if you pay in cash or check you get a free Cozy Cove Cabins grocery bag.  Just the perfect sine to pop over to the market for the milk, bread and deserts you may have forgotten.

Another snowy week.

The snow has been falling off and on all week.  This made for a pretty photo the pother night.  Thanks Kelly for sharing this.  If the snow keeps up our friend, Ralph the Moose is not going to be seen from the road anymore.

Rate adjustment 22

In 2020, just at the beginning of the Pandemic we did a slight rate increase. In part, it was to be competitive with other accommodations in the area. Once the issues and guidelines for the Pandemic started, we found our cost to maintain the cabins increased too.

This year, as we are sure everyone has noticed, the price of everything has gone up over the past 2 years: food, gas, fuel for our homes, housing, etc..   Jackman resident and Businesses have the same cost increase.   CMP customers can understand this too.

So again, we raised our base rates but keeping our per person rate lower so still, the more people in a cabin, the less cost per person.

The new rates are listed on the website rates tab and will be in effect February 11th, 2022 for any new reservations made starting May 1st. If you have made reservations for the upcoming year before this date, the old rates, of course,  will be honored.

We do hope to offer various discounts throughout the year. such as: “March Madness”;  “couples discount” – if a couple, meaning you can share the same bed, rents a large cabin for 6, we will take X amount off;   If one person rents a small cabin, some discount;  Active duty service families, discount.   We will not accept plastic for these discounts

Beside our weekly discount, our Deer Season discount, and our mid week winter discount, which is standard, all other discounts will be posted here on the blog.  When you make your reservation or check in, you will need to tell us you saw the discount on our blog to benefit from these extra discounts.

 

February 2022 Trail Report

Boy it has been a cold winter so far this year.  This is keeping the good snow on the trails.

I still do not think we have had the usual amounts of snowfall last month but so far the trails are all in good condition down to Parlin, over to Rockwood, up to Pittston and to the border.

This was on the Jan 28th, before the Nor’easter.

 

And this one was after the storm.

Yesterday and into the night, we did get about another 5-8 inches of snow here in town.  It was difficult to measure it as again, the winds kept it moving. At least for us, it was an all snow event.

Today it is still cold but the skies are blue and the sun is shining.  It should be a good week to ride.

As for riding the lakes, use extreme caution.   Even though most of Big Wood is quite frozen, there are reports of slush pockets at the southern end (near River outlet) as well as snow drifts.    Rockwood is also reporting issues on Moosehaed,.  Please stay on Marked trails.

We appreciate the groomers of the Border Riders Club as well as surrounding clubs that make our trails in the region some of the best. Please join and support the clubs where you ride.

 

Mid January 2022 Trail Report

Here we are January 14th of the new year waiting on the big snow.  The good news is that we have had a few decent snowfalls and the temperatures have been pretty low. We had bouts of maybe 2-4 inches fall here in town but at higher elevations, reports of 5-6 inches.

Early January, the club did go out and start rolling the trails, getting them packed to ride. This week, we are hearing reports of some good riding. Summit riders reported that they were able to groom south of Jackman. And Pittston Farm has been grooming also. State there could be some rough areas but they were pleased with the results.

There is some logging happening north of the clubhouse.  You can take the lake trail to the clubhouse but you cannot ride west of US 201. The ITS trail east side of 201 to the border is open. Please be aware of signage.  If it says “NO RIDING” stay clear.

This is a photo Heidi shared from her ride last week from Jackman to Pittston.

Looks pretty good to me.
