Cottage season is coming and if you don't have your own, now's the time to start hunting for your rental for the warmer months. And what better time to book for than the Victoria Day weekend? It's warm and sunny and that makes it perfect weather for sipping beers on the dock.

This year, the May long weekend takes place from May 16 to 18, 2015, so it's a bit earlier than usual, but don't let that stop you from heading to a lake for relaxation. You may just not want to, you know, jump into the lake.

For those who own their own cottage, the May two-four is bound to be a chore-filled weekend, cleaning up the debris from a not-so-nice winter and spring, turning on the water and electricity in your long vacant space, and of course, surveying the land to make sure everything is in tiptop shape.

But for those of us who rent, the Victoria Day long weekend can be spent can be as simple as packing up and parking yourself on a Muskoka chair.

With that in mind, we went on the hunt to find incredible cottages available around the country via rental agencies. They're all available for the May long weekend, but we can't imagine they'll stay that way for long. So, whether you're looking for a cozy space fit for two or a big house to host all your friends, check out the slideshow below for 20 incredible cottages you can book today:
