Welcome! Thanks for checking out The Sunny Porcupine. This is our cottage and even though we wish we could be here all the time we cannot, so we are sharing the experience with you. In case you are wondering, the cottage got it's name from our 1st trip when we found a chunky little porcupine in an apple tree. It was only fitting we made that cute little guy a part of our journey.

I (Jared) work in an office and my wife (Toni) is a work from home dog breeder (Bernedoodles). We are parents to 3 wonderful children so needless to say we live a hectic life and love the chance to relax to the sounds of the breaking waves, watching the tides roll or the playful seals if you're lucky.

If you are also in need of some good ol' R&R, we welcome you to come and kick your feet up at our place!
