For mobile, the Wilson Electronics "weboost" series is something of a gold
standard. Iirc they make units for your usage profile as well. I have
considered picking one up but decided I preferred to have limited
reachability at home.

If you have internet service at the cottage, a femtocell transciever from
your wireless carrier would be another option.

Good luck!
