Seasonal properties have special requirements for insurance. Newman brokers are very familiar with all the fine details of insuring your cottage, trailer lot, ski chalet or any other vacation property in Eastern Ontario.
Relax and enjoy summer at the cottage
Opening a cottage is an exciting event shared by many Canadians every spring. A cottage is more than just a weekend getaway; it’s also a place to share lasting memories with friends and family.
Cottages can be added to a property policy and will also include coverage for outbuildings, such as garages and sheds, and liability. If you own a high value cottage, island property, or rent out your cottage, you may find it doesn’t qualify.
For these types of cottages, we turn to a specialized cottage policy that’s available through several insurance companies. Not only can these policies accommodate a wide variety of cottages, they also allow you to choose from a variety of coverages.
If you plan to rent out your cottage this year and haven’t done so in the past, take the time to ensure it’s permitted before you put out the ‘for rent’ sign. While some policies may allow you to rent out, they can have tight restrictions.
It’s also recommended that you determine in advance what your renters will be permitted to use, such as boats, jet skis, other watercrafts or even a hot tub. The insurance company will require these details. If you don’t want an item used, ensure it’s locked or removed from your property.
If you’ve recently purchased a cottage, or are a long-time owner of one, contact us today to find out more, or to obtain a free-no-obligation quote.

Excellent staff and they take the time to shop the best rate possible.
Highly recommend! Pleasant and knowledgeable staff, willing to assist with your insurance needs. Quick and through, left me feeling properly insured at the best value.
I find Newman very helpful and easy to deal with. I called yesterday to change something I needed on my insurance and within half an hour, I had confirmation it was done and good to go.
I would highly recommend Newman Insurance. It is always a pleasure dealing with Joe Smith. He always exceeds my expectations. Thank you!
I have been with this company for several years now and I am very impressed with the excellent service I always receive. They all seem very professional yet friendly at the same time. Such a pleasure to receive this kind of service these days.
Great team to work with. When we changed from a city focused insurer they were helpful in finding the right company for rural needs.
