From cottage rentals to grocery shopping, handyman services, and cottage cleaning, the name “Jayne’s” can mean many things these days.
While Jayne McCaw, owner of Jayne’s Luxury Rentals, began her business nine years ago as a way to connect luxury cottage owners with the ideal renters, her reputation for luxury offerings and impeccable service has led her to create Jayne’s Concierge – dedicated to offering the same top-of-the-line services to the Muskoka community as a whole.
These services allow cottagers to sit back and enjoy cottage time from the moment they arrive, but they also serve a greater purpose: allowing Jayne to connect cottagers with the best businesses across Muskoka.
“With over 250 rentals in our Muskoka portfolio, we’ve developed a thick rolodex of connections with the best trades, retailers and services,” says Jayne. “Our concierge desk allows us to meet the needs of cottagers by connecting them with vetted professionals from here in our community.”
This passion for supporting the Muskoka business community has become a battle cry for Jayne. “By supporting local businesses, we strengthen the local economy, draw workers to the region, and continue to transform Muskoka into a world-class hotspot.”
“I really hope everyone understands how we are all responsible to help maintain this paradise we live in. That means buying local and spreading the word, promoting Muskoka whenever you can. Tourism, especially outside of summer, will attract more labour to our region, which will build more sustainable year-round communities.”
Jayne also offers gift baskets to rental guests, filled with gift certificates, promotions and discounts from local retailers. Retailers and service providers can reach out if they want to join the 34 businesses currently included in Jayne’s Sustainable Tourism Drive.
Cottagers can spend more time enjoying their property rather than having to sweat the details. A simple text to 1-855-2-JAYNES will allow them to book anything from property maintenance and concierge services to garbage collection and more.
Another way to help is to plan an off-peak Muskoka getaway. From September to May, you can take in the glory of the fall and winter scenery, and enjoy your favourite shops and restaurants without the busy summer crowds.
“Come and stay overnight. Buy dinner and breakfast and a few souvenirs and experience our great hospitality,” says Jayne. “Let us help you experience all that Muskoka has to offer.”
