Do These 4 Things Before Opening Your Muskoka Cottage This Spring
Before you make the trek to your cottage, there are a series of things that you need to do first and foremost.
- Contact your electricity provider and turn on your cottage electricity.
Before you head up to the cottage, you’re going to want your electricity powered up! This could mean something different for each cottage owner. For example, some cottage owners have to run their power off a generator rather than a typical electricity supply panel. If this is the case, you may need some help hauling that generator across the lake! Thankfully our GPHE cottage opening team has done this numerous times - CLICK HERE TO SEE A RECENT TRIP!
Not sure how to go about restoring power to your Muskoka cottage? Unless you have background and training in electrical systems, we recommend you immediately call a pro for help. It’s so easy to make a small mistake and electrocute yourself during this process - and that’s no way to kick off good cottage season!

- Contact your propane or gas provider and reconnect your fuel service.
The next step in preparing your cottage for that first trip back is contacting your propane or gas provider and reconnecting your fuel service. If you’ve been dreaming up that first bacon and eggs breakfast by the lake, you’ll be sadly disappointed to find out your propane wasn’t turned on in time!
- Contact your water provider and ensure that your water access is reconnected.
Don’t forget to turn your water back on! Our GPHE Plumbing team has been on numerous visits to cottages where the simple problem lies in calling your provider and ensuring that the proper steps have been taken to reconnecting your cottage water supply.
In some cases however, the problem can be more serious.
Some of the common cottage plumbing issues that we see at Muskoka cottages in the springtime are leaking, frozen, cracked or burst water pipes. This is obviously a more serious problem that needs to be addressed immediately!
If you’re not sure how to go about restoring your cottage water supply, don’t hesitate to call our cottage plumbing team at Gravenhurst Plumbing!
- Contact your HVAC service provider and schedule your HVAC Maintenance Appointment.
Whether your cottage is summer, winter or all-season, proper heating and cooling is a MUST! We all know how quickly the heat can sneak up on us during the spring months. If you’re anticipating a cool and comfortable cottage season ahead, the next step on your cottage preparation list is ensuring that your air conditioning is working properly! If it’s not, that could derail your entire summer vacation plan!
