Welcome to Cottage Cove at Asessippi


Asessippi Ski Area & Resort opened and was named "Canada's Best New Attraction" in 2000 by Attractions Canada. In 2005 work on the cottage development began. Since the three original models where introduced, our team has worked with our cottage owners in designing more options with plenty of custom features in order to create your perfect dream cottage.

Sizes and styles all vary but quality and comfort is consistent in every design. All of our cottages are built for year round use. Ski in / Ski out or Riverview lots are available.

Your recreation property at Cottage Cove is a four season delight. Skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, skating and downhill snow tubing are just some of the activities you can in enjoy in the winter. In summer explore the entire park, floating on the Shell River or boating on the Lake of the Prairies, you will also have access to the marina just below the development.

This is where the good times are, the memories for you, your children and your grandchildren. Community is important to us and you will find plenty of activities to meet your neighbours. Start living your dream.

Please visit us this winter at the Cottage Cove desk inside the main lodge at Asessippi or contact Daymon Guillas for more information.

Gingerbread House Decorating
Nothing warms a December like gingerbread. Shirley Campbell, Assistant Manager for The Russell Inn, has been sharing her passion for gingerbread houses with the staff there for years.
This year cottagers got a real treat when she brought her tasty craft workshop to our Christmas party and she will be back again. You and your family can spend an hour or two creating a masterpiece to take home with you.
This has become a huge tradition with Russell Inn staff and their families, and we are so very pleased that Shirley has offered to share this with our cottage cove families.
Riverview Hiking & Snowshoe Trails

A beautiful trail along the river deep in the bush in the deep show. These trails are open for your use. They are well treed and sheltered so enjoy them even after hours.
Summer time they are also open for hiking.

Après Ski

Now that was a hit! Our second year in a row of 4:00 pm Après parties for cottagers. Lots of laughs, lots of snacks, and even a family snow ball fight or two. We look forward to doing it again next year. Hot Chocolate, Marshmallows, a bit of beer or wine. Rumour has it that Don Bonk, got bonked in the lip with a snowball, which officially confirmed that the kids won and the adults lost the snowball fight.
