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..

Yahoo

Although we have yet to determine the cause, Yahoo is marking our domain email, info@cozycovecabins.com or tami@cozycovecabins.com,  as spam.

SO if you try to contact us from the website or using either of these emails directly, we are not ignoring you. Look in your spam box for a reply.

If you made a reservation with us, your confirmation will be sent from tami@cozycovecabins.com.If you do not get it within 24hours, check your spam or junk box. If there is nothing, give us a call.

Please add these emails to your contact list if you want a reply or correspondence from us.

I have been working with Yahoo customer Care for a month now trying to get this resolved.

Thank you for your patience.

Email replies

Last year, there were some problems with my email communications being blocked by various services. (Comcast etc)  We consistently told people that if they did not receive their confirmation email, to check their spam box. This was usually where they were.  We finally resolved that problem.

This year, it is Yahoo. If you have a Yahoo account, my replies to you are probably going into your spam or junk box. SO if you want to receive a reply or a confirmation from us, please add info@cozycovecabins.com and tami@cozycovecabins.com to your contact list.  And just check your spam or junk mail box occasionally.  We are not the only ones getting spammed by Yahoo.  I check mine once a week and luckily, I do catch some important emails.

I always reply to any emails we get within 24hours. So please, if you have not heard back from me and there is no reply in your inbox or spam box, just give us a call.

 

Ice out was only 5 days prior to taking this photo and look how much the water is receding!  Today, the 20th, the lake water is beyond the rocks and all that is left are some puddles.   There is rain in the forecast so in the next few days, it could change again.  Mother nature is at work here.

We almost have a lawn again. Looking back to years prior, we never even saw the bottom yard until late May.

Ice Out Contest 2021

The Northland also does an ice out contest and they called for                              yesterday, April 13 at 845 AM. Yes this is really early for Ice out.

We can all try again next year.

Today is April 3rd, 2021 and below is the most recent cam shot of Big Wood.  You can see the lake has risen with the water is our bottom yard. The grumbling under the ice has started: so I think the ice is getting thinner and water is moving, or Big Woody is getting restless.

That is a snapshot of Big Wood this morning from our webcam. (March 8th)

It is a beautiful sunny but very cold morning here in Jackman.  Yesterday was a moving off the ice day for many ice shacks though. Warmer temps are supposed to happen later this week, which is why I assume the shacks are moving out. Once it starts getting slushy out there, they are difficult to slide off.

Truly, the date is a guess in every sense. But keep in mind, 2020 was a very dry year. And this winter did not produce as much snow as we have in the past. Does that mean less snow & ice to melt, warmer spring, earlier ice out?  Who knows?

SO with all of that being said, it is about time to start with the guessing for this years ICE OUT CONTEST!

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 person/email.

3. The deadline to post your vote this year is 8am on April 10th, 2020. 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 2021.

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, 2021.  New this year, you will also win a Cozy Cove Cabins hoodie.

Please Note: Only one discount permitted per stay at Cozy Cove Cabins and our same discount rules apply. (payment by check or cash, cabin minimum must be met)

New Covid Guidelines for Maine visitors

Starting today, an update has been posted for visitors to Maine.

“As of March 5, 2021, exemptions from testing or quarantine are available for:

  • Residents of New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island or Massachusetts
  • Individuals that have had COVID-19 in the previous 90 days, or are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

People who are not residents of Maine will still be asked to sign a “Certificate of Compliance” if they seek lodging in Maine.  This certificate indicates either that they have received a recent negative COVID-19 test result, that they will quarantine in Maine for 10 days (or the full duration of their stay if fewer than 10 days), or that they have already completed their quarantine in Maine, or that they are exempt due to being fully vaccinated or having had COVID-19.  This compliance form must be provided to check-in at all Maine lodging.

Moving forward to May 1st, 2021,  Maine will automatically exempt all states, unless a state is otherwise determined by the Maine CDC as being high risk. If one or more states see a spike in cases of highly contagious COVID-19 variants, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. The Maine CDC will publicly announce any such states when they are identified.

Masks/face coverings are still mandated to be worn in Maine.

What we do here at Cozy Cove Cabins will not change much. But if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us.

Stay healthy!
