About Jane and Blaine Filthaut
After traveling the world, working in the jet-setting high finance business, and then subsequently owing his own construction company in Florida, 40 years later life brought Blaine back to his birth and hometown of Maple Creek, Sask, Canada, where his dad and mom owned the local bakery and pool hall and his childhood memories of growing up on the prairies of Sask will make you smile. He hit the ground running, bought and renovated his grandad's home and the 'Cottage of Content' in January, 2015. He is currently Retired from managing at the Local Home and Agro Co-Op, President of the Chamber of Commerce, and as a lifelong artist himself, purchased an 8,000 sq ft. Historic building on Main Street in Maple Creek and is enjoying retirement constantly upgrading The Broken Spoke Fine Art Gallery and Gift Shop, and Island Oasis Smoothie Shop. Rebuilding and renovating the 'Cottage of Content' for a short term rental was a project he enjoyed with his wife, Jane, while she awaited her permanent residence here in Maple Creek, ensuring every detail of the renovation was accommodating to our guests. Jane comes from the East Coast of the USA, whom Blaine met 12 years ago while living in Florida. Jane brings years of experience in the hospitality industry, having worked for Marriott International for over 20 years. Together, Blaine and Jane look forward to welcoming you to Maple Creek and the 'Cottage of Content' , accommodating your every need and exceeding your highest expectations!

Wonderful Week in Maple Creek!
We have just returned from a wonderful week at the Cottage of Content. All amenities are as pictured and described, the beds are comfortable and the shower is hot. Our little dog loved the back yard as did we. Maple Creek is a great little town and we were pleasantly surprised to find the Co-Op grocery store had everything we would expect to find in Calgary. Jane and Blaine were excellent hosts and a pleasure to deal with. You have to check out Cyprus Hills Provincial Park where we spent several days hiking. When we return to Maple Creek we will stay at the “Cottage of Content”!
Thank you for your wonderful review..it was certainly a pleasure to have you as our guests and hope our paths cross again in the future. Jane and Blaine
Comfortable and well located.
Our family of 5 stayed 3 nights in early July and although the weather was rainy, the cottage was cozy and the hosts were friendly. We enjoyed Maple Creek and the Cypress Hills and this was a nice place to return to at the end of each day’s adventures. We hope to visit again some day!
Wonderful house in a wonderful community!
It was great to have a home away from home. Jane and Blaine are amazing hosts! Made me feel like part of the community.
Thank you so much Angela! Looking forward to seeing you again! Jane
Super clean and cute!
Lovely place to stay and explore the town and surrounding parks, historical sites etc. We stayed with a toddler and the space was great. The bed was a bit uncomfortable, but other than that, a great stay. The hosts were very welcoming and a pleasure to deal with!
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cottage of Content and enjoyed all the amenities of Maple Creek. We noticed that although there are three bedrooms with three different types of mattresses, at the Cottage noted that you only used the front bedroom, which has the softest mattress. The middle and back bedrooms have firm and extra firm mattresses; perhaps if you choose to stay at the Cottage again you may be more comfortable trying them. We hope to have you as our guests again in the future. Jane
Very cute. Great location 😊
Thank you! Owners are great!
Convenient and comfortable
The Cottage has everything required for a comfortable stay. Our hosts were easy to deal with and quick to respond to any communications. We were only at the house for the night but it provided all that we required. We had to make a slight change to our plans and Jane was very accommodating.
