Unconventional Moose, The

Your Cottage Dream Store, Unconventional but always interesting....The UnconVentionaL mOOse, is a "boutique of sorts". We have a wildlife theme with a rustic flair. The shop previously operated for many years as the Mohawk Trading Post carrying primarily native crafts, moccasins and leather goods. Originally located just east of the junction of Highway 7 & 37, many recall the caged bears that called the Post home entertaining many a tourist by drinking bottles of coke and slurping up ice cream. Not a sight common in today's environment but memorable for many that passed by the Post on their annual trek to the cottage. After a 10 year stint on Highway 37 the ownership changed and the product mix was enhanced which prompted a name change. With a life like moose now sitting at the front door and an unconventional product mix the UnconVentionaL mOOse came into existence. Now situated at the beautiful West Wind property just west of the Highway 7 and 37 junction, Kosmo the mOOse has his own private pond and waterfall with a spectacular back drop of the Skootamatta river. The moose is owned and operated by proprietor Tracey Hiltz. Tracey originated from Nova Scotia but spent many years wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of Toronto life. Tweed appeared to be a quaint little escape. Perched on the shores of Stoco Lake, with the mighty Moira meandering through the downtown streets, life just seemed to move at a slower pace. Obviously she was somewhat naïve about rural retail business--things clip along at a much quicker pace than anticipated. One thing is for sure though-- she would never trade this beautiful country setting to return to the big City lights. Now in addition to a thriving retail shop the moose also offers overnight and short term motel accommodation and several long term apartments. Maybe someday a small café will come to life offering healthy local fare in a spectacular setting looking out over the back rapids.
