February 2 Trail report

We have been getting some decent snow past couple weeks on top of a good solid base.

The Jackman region as well as Coburn, Rockwood and Pittston Farm are all reporting fantastic trail conditions.   As well as our guests here this week.  Trails are simply perfect.

The cold spell expected Friday-Saturday is going to put a damper on the winter fun.  Just rmeber to bundle up and cover exposed skin.  Be safe out there.

Whenever a guest pay cash for the cabin and does not want the change back, maybe 0.20 or $1.50, we always added that small change into the Border Riders Donation box.  It is not a lot but does add up to a contribution for both winter and summer activities.

We are making it officiall

ROUND UP! Pay cash (or check) for your stay and round up to the nearest dollar. All extra will go toward the Border Riders Club and the trail system                                                                                                                                                Plus, if you pay with cash, you get a free Cozy Cove Grocery bag

Everyone had an incredible holiday weekend here at Cozy Cove Cabins.   The trails are not pristine yet but the ice on Big Wood is solid. I do not have a camera with a wide enough angle to capture all the activity out there. Lots of folks out there.

Then we have a young one racing dad on the little racetrack by the shore.                               I think the 5 year old won.


Great weather for fishing, relaxing or socializing around a campfire .

Get out there and enjoy the day.

The trails are having a slow start this year but do your snow dance and you will have a great season.

From the Border Riders club today:

Most trails are open.
Trails closed are: ITS 89 North to the Canadian border from the intersection of ITS 88; 89A temporarily closed due to sections plowed and the club trail north of the clubhouse is closed for the season.
Trail from clubhouse to Big Wood Lake – low snow conditions.


Happy Holidays 2022

For those who have not stayed with us in the past, or have not been back for the last 3+ years, or have moved, you may have not received our 2022 Holiday Christmas Card.

So here you are.   Now everyone put on your dancing shoes and do the snow dance!

We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

CP Holiday Train in Jackman


CP Railroad Holiday train stopped in Jackman today. Many locals had the chance to see it all lit up when it arrived around 5am.What an incredible site.

But here is a photo from above (Thanks Bill) during the 30 minute concert.

Hot chocolate, coffee and cookies were free to all. Food and monetary donations made to support the Jackman Food bank. Special shout out to Missy Newman for organizing this. Good job to all that helped and to all that donated!



RIP Maggie Mae

On Saturday morning, Maggie decided to leave us to spend time with her sister Murphy. I laid with her as she struggled and took her last breaths.    She was a sweet girl, always happy to get many petting sessions, treats, and to “lean” on you. Those who have only just met her, did not know her full happy playful self. She is and will be missed.

A guests’ appreciation

I really enjoy reading what our guests write in our guest journals in the cabins but I have not gathered one from the cabins for awhile to post. This entry is from a couple who have lived outside the US for many years. Their appreciation for us and the area touched my heart.

July 28-July 30, 2022

“We had never been here before. It is a beautiful area     The only aspect that rivals the natural beauty of the area is the beauty of the spirit invested in these Cozy Cove Cabins.

The literature Tami and Steve have left in the cabin (the information book, the log of renovations, their history of their dedication of work here) is transcendent.

A place is never just a place – it is the people who love it, who work it. It is the history.

This is what I feel gives a particular identity to this place.    Thank you

PS Have yet to see a moose!

PPS Saw a moose last night -right up the road where the information book suggested! “
