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! COME and ENJOY Maple Creek with us!

Comfortable and Homey
For us this was a wonderful place for a quiet romantic getaway. We've been to Maple Creek and the Cypress Hills various times over the past decade but this was the first time we did so without bringing kids or family with us and the "Cottage of Content" was a perfect home away from home. While it could easily accommodate a larger family it is also cozy enough to make it great for just a couple.
We enjoyed total privacy during our stay and the benefits of having a fully stocked house, deck and yard to use as our own are just too numerous to mention. It was WAY better than a hotel room or a shared space B&B in our opinion. Little things like having ziploc bags for leftovers were greatly appreciated. The owners were very friendly and available yet also gave us our space.
We would absolutely recommend this place to any of our friends and we would happily stay here again in the future.
Maple Creek Cottage
Our stay was perfect. Location was great for exploring the area or going out to eat. No neighbors on either side ensured privacy on peaceful back deck. Price was reasonable. Only suggestion might be a new mattress in middle bedroom.
Very clean cozy relaxing. The cottage had everything we needed. We will definately stay here again.
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
