                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2012

                          About the owner: We grew up in Cheticamp, married in the beautiful Church that you will see from our property and plan to retire there in 2017. We were so happy to buy this home in February 2012. As a military family we currently live in Yellowknife, NT, but look forward to visiting Cheticamp each summer and enjoy our new home. We hope you love staying in our home as much as we do.

                          Why the Owner Chose Cheticamp:
                          We consider this a piece of paradise especially since our family still lives in the area... it's coming home to us each time we visit it. We cannot wait to retire there!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We grew up looking at this home across the bay and can't believe that we now own it. We love everything from the private pond, the old school house, and the peaceful setting of our home. We will never get tired of looking out at the incredible scenery. We're very proud to offer you the experience of staying in our home and our village... this will be a vacation destination you will most definitely want to return to.
