We have sold Cozy Cove Cabins

                                                                                                                                               Today, March 8, 2023 we have sold Cozy Cove Cabins.  We have loved this life, Jackman, the sunsets, the lake, the people we have met and yes, even all the blood sweat and tears we shed working on the cabins so this truly is bittersweet for us.

For those of you who do not know our story, I’ll be brief.   LOL  Probably not
We knew we wanted A Cozy Cove Cabin since 1994.  Did our first search & ended up in NH. The place we wanted sold just before we got there. SO we stayed in NH, then in 2003, sold our house and started our search once again. We looked at almost 80 properties across NE (NH, VT, M& Me), Michigan, and even Texas!
The funny thing is when we saw Tuckaway shores for sale in Jackman, we thought…what is in Jackman? It is so far from everything this can’t be good. .  Then Cozy Cove went on the market,  so we made a trip to check the 2 properties on a very blustery day in February.We looked at Tuckaway first then at Cozy Cove. We made the offer almost the next day.
This was the perfect location, size, and condition for what we wanted to do.
The first 8-10 years was really hard work. Every part of each cabin was touched by us inside and out, a few times even,  to get them to where we are today.  These are old Maine camps; most were brought in from somewhere around Maine and this is what we wanted them to stay. Tearing down and building new is just not who we are. We just had to make them able to tolerate the 4 seasons better and get rid of the 1970 carpets.  The surprises we found under shag carpets and behind paneled walls. It has been a learning experience since day one and definitely a labor of love.  You can read our journal and see our progress over the years in each cabin.  As there are still many things to do here, besides general maintenance, we hope this tradition of sharing continues.
But it is time for us to start the next chapter of our life. There is no plan yet. We will be traveling awhile to see where we want to nest next.
It has been an honor and a joy meeting so many wonderful people.  We have appreciated your patronage and a special thank you to those who keep coming back. Some guests have become great friends and some, even if they only stayed with us a few times, have found a place in our hearts too. You will be missed.
We hope Travis & Heidi enjoy you and this new life as much as we have.

                   This was the last photo we took in the fall with Maggie and Murphy girl is watching on from her happy place.  We hope you remember us fondly.

Email us

Over the past few years, we have had some difficulty using our domain emails  Gmail and other services want validation or the block us to our customers.  This year, they are sometimes blocking the email I’ve used for 19 years, tami@cozycovecabins.com.

Effective this month, please do not use this email, tami@cozycovecabins.com, to correspond with Cozy Cove Cabins anymore.  We do not want to loose you or miss your correspondence with us.  I will respond or forward any emails that come in to this address until the end of March.  This is the email you should add to you contacts for us.


You can still contact us at info@cozycovecabins.com or via the website but otherwise,               this is the best way to correspond with us.




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

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

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.

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.
