Why Cottage Insurance?

Cottage insurance is designed to safeguard your investment, covering the unique risks of owning a vacation property. Unlike traditional home insurance, cottage insurance considers the seasonal or occasional use of the property, remote location, and possible increased exposure to weather-related events.

    What Does Cottage Insurance Cover?

    At FirstOntario Insurance Brokers, we offer customized insurance solutions to meet your needs. Our cottage insurance policies can include:

    Detached Private Structures

    Personal Property

    Coverage for your personal belongings, such as furniture, appliances, and recreational equipment, while at the cottage.
