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. make you smile. He hit the ground running, bought and renovated his grandad's home two years ago and the 'Cottage of Content' in January, 2014. He is currently the Manager 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 doing the renovations himself for a Fine Art Gallery, Gift and Tourism shop. Purchasing and completely rebuilding and renovating the 'Cottage of Content' for a short term rental was a project he enjoyed with his wife, Jane, 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 needs and exceeding your expectations!

Convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

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.

Enjoyed our stay very much. First time using VRPO and was impressed with the experience

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cottage with all the necessary amenities. Made our own meals which made it very homely. Enjoyed the back deck when we were able to be outside. Unfortunately the rain kept us inside but the cottage was really comfortable so it wasn't a problem. Thanks for a memorable experience.

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

An adorable cottage on a quiet street in picturesque Maple Creek. We had an absolutely wonderful stay. The cottage was perfect for our family with plenty of room for everyone. This self catering cottage is clean, well kept and fully stocked. Jane and Blaine are wonderful hosts who are available to help if you need anything otherwise they leave you to enjoy the cottage. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone visiting Maple Creek.
