Becki Zerr and her family were once campers in Regina Beach before they became cottage owners. Eventually they opened their own business called Centre Street Suites which serves as a common weekend getaway for residents around Regina.

With the cost of living on the rise, Zerr said she saw that opportunity.

“We wanted to bring the vacation opportunity to our guests,” she said. “We respect that we’re in a unique time right now (in) relation to our economy, but we believe that you can just step outside of your city and there’s so much to offer and so much to experience here in the small community of Regina Beach.”

“This is our luxury place. Our home away from home,” said Malach. “We wait all winter and get ready to come out as soon as the campground’s open.”

Hidden Hills Campground and Resort is also located in Regina Beach, which is over 50 km north of Regina.
