                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: Married 41 years, five children, twelve grandchildren. My wife and I own a Contract Research Organization which manages clinical trials for the biotechnology industry.

                  Why the Owner Chose Cardinal:
                  We inherited the cottage. It is a fabulous location but quite far from where we live in California. However, we use it two weeks every summer.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  There are lots of birds - geese, ducks, cranes, kingfishers as well as many different types of small birds, due to a large wetland located nearby.
