The Cottage Season Continues
As the summer holidays draw to a close remember that there is still fabulous weather to come. September and October can be the best months at the cottage as evidenced by the photo below taken by Dave Curtis in October last year. The marina continues to operate but with shorter hours: 8-5 daily through Thanksgiving.
Join us at Catchacoma Marina on September 1st from 11am to 2pm for our final Pop Up Market of the Season! We will have lots of fresh, local produce as well as corn and berries from McLean's Berry Farm.
You can order ahead of time online at www.mollysacres.ca/shop and simply pick up your order that day, or you can browse the selection we have while you're heading up to the cottage for the long weekend!
See you at the Marina!
Our Seasonal Merchandise is Now 10% Off. Sweet!

Ice Out Ice Cream Challenge🍦🍦🍦
Spring is here, and with it the annual Ice Out Ice Cream Challenge. Join us to predict ICE OUT DAY 2018. Go to the Catchacoma Marina Facebook page by midnight Monday, March 26 and enter your prediction. If you guess right, you can drop by the marina this summer to grab FREE ICE CREAM CONES for a boatload of up to 8 people. We'll announce the winners here the day the ice goes out as determined by Steve, our marina manager. Only one submission per person, of course. Last year the Ice Out Day was accurately predicted by 3 happy ice cream lovers: Erin McClenaghan, Barb Lillico and Nicole Eathorne. Cheers!
