                      Owner info

                      About the owner: We purchased the land and developed the property ourselves in 1998. The property was completely forested and the road to the property was only compeleted in 1998. We cleared the land for buidling and put in the driveway and dock in the first year. In 2006 we started the construction of the Post and Beam cottage. We have enjoyed the project along with our two children Spencer and Madison. We plan on retiring to the area in the future.

                      Why the Owner Chose Haliburton:
                      This is a beautiful area with lots of activities for both summer and winter. The privacy of the large acerage lots was a real attraction to us. This lake is touted as one of the cleanest lakes in Ontario and is surrounded by large nature reserves.
