Cottage Services

W.W. Fairbairn & Sons, Inc. has been servicing local cottages for as long as we can remember. 

The opening and closing of cottages in Northern Michigan is no easy feat, but it’s one of the most rewarding parts of our business. Some of our customers have been with us for four generations, which is incredible. In addition, several of the homes we have the honor to service are pieces of history in themselves. 

Each Fall and Spring, we service over 450 customers second homes in just a couple months! 

Have a cottage or second home that you’d like us to turn the water on and off to seasonally? We’d love to help. 

Give us a call and inquire about our current rates and scheduling availability!
