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.

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.

March 1, 2022

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.

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.

 

Happy Holidays

If you have ever stayed with us in the past, you know that every year I send out holiday postcards to our past guests.  Unless you have stayed here multiple times though, I can only keep records back 3 years. SO if it has been awhile since we have seen you, or you have moved, you may not get a Holiday card.  Sorry.
Please know that we are so thankful to all who have stayed with us in the past and especially those who keep coming back.

This Holiday season we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and may you all have a Joyous, HEALTHY, and prosperous new year.

Our guests enjoy nesting

Many of our guests, especially the ones who come back year after year, like to “nest” and add their own comforts of home.  This is what Cindy and Jeremy bring every summer.

They enjoy cooking outside. They have a grill, cast iron pots and pans and a smoker.  They made us pancakes on the grill and we spent a day hanging out with them and other friends while smoking a pork and beef roast using rubs they got form Sawyers Maple.

4th of July award

Every 4th of July, a few of our guests enter the float competition.  They always get creative. This year, they did Grease!   Played great music, dressed in 50s attire and even had a couple T birds on board.  They one the Judges award this year.   It was fun getting it ready.

If you go to our facebook page, I captured a brief video of them coming back to camp.

4th of July 2021 in Jackman

The 4th of July in Jackman is always a fun day. It usually starts with a parade through town.  Not only locals participate but we have a group of our guests that enter the parade every year.  And win!  SO feel free to join in the fun, even if you are just visiting.

After the parade, here at Cozy Cove, we have our annual potluck picnic with our guests. If you are not staying with us this year, you are still invited. Just bring a dish to share.

At dusk, the town has an awesome fireworks display. Some say it is the best in Maine.

This year the JMMRCOC is sponsoring A FREEDOM RACE in the morning of the 4th. They hope to make this an annual event too. Anyone is welcome to participate. The best part, we can cheer on the racers from our shore or along Main street.

Turtle Nest 2021

After a few days of looking for the right place to lay her eggs, Miss turtle here found a spot.  Took her most of the day to dig so she can safely lay her eggs.

We did not mark the area off this time. But in about 60 to 90 days, we will watch for the babies to head to the lake.  Good luck baby turtles..
