Cottage Docks are expert floating dock builders offering every option imaginable to fit any budget. Whether you’re looking for a standard size, or a full custom waterfront package, we’ve got you covered. Our floating docks are solid, stable, and beautiful, and we specialize in construction large one piece traditional wood floating docks. We love floating docks because the designs are limitless. They are perfect for deep water, fluctuating water levels (as low as 3 ½”) and soft lake-bed type conditions.
Cottage Docks can build virtually any dock design possible. Each application can vary and Cottage Docks can adapt. We can adjust to any freeboard height (water level to decking) to match our customer’s needs. All our floating docks are built for maximum per sq. ft. buoyancy and stability.
Since every location is unique, it is important to take into account all factors such as prevailing wind, boat traffic, etc. Cottage Docks will go over these factors with you to ensure that you have the right fit for your new dock system.
All purpose (AP) docks are one of our most popular and best selling docks. Available in any size or configuration, with sandstone or black floats.
Bumper Float (BF) docks offer a unique combination of dock bumper and flotation. Designed to run the length of your dock on both sides, these floats will comfortably float a dock 8 feet wide.
Cottage country offers an array of shoreline opportunities for us to adapt. We can use boulders, solid rock, armour stone & soft or mixed shorelines.
Perfect for fluctuating water levels, automatically adjusting when the water goes up or down, a ramp is used to get from your shore to your floating dock.

Western Red Cedar
Why Western Red Cedar? Well, for starters, this highly revered, durable wood is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attacks, which means anything you build with it will last longer and require less maintenance. Aesthetically, there really is no substitute for the natural beauty of Real Cedar. Imbued with decidedly crisp, yet superbly rich, tonal properties.
SUSTAINABILITY – Independent studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetic products in every way. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, western red cedar actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. And unlike brick, cement and composites, Real Cedar is renewable and biodegradable. Plus, Real Cedar is sourced from the most sustainable managed forests in the world.
