Dear Urban Diplomat: How do I tell my friends that they can’t come to my cottage every weekend?

Dear Urban Diplomat: Former Frat Boy

(Image: Clinton Steeds)

Dear Urban Diplomat,
My wife and I recently bought a cottage. It’s a charming two-bedroom with a bunkie near Orillia. Unfortunately, my university buddies, with whom I’m still close, have decided it’s their cottage, too.
