                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: I love the outdoors and enjoy finding new discoveries in and around Courtenay! My favorite things to do would be cross country skiing on Mount Washington, hiking & walking the trails by Nymph Falls!

                      Why the Owner Chose Courtenay:
                      This river-front property is a rare find. It was constructed in 1936, renovated and expanded in 1992. Then we again renovated and decorated in 2011/12. The cottage's quaint charm is refreshing in its idyllic location. You can feel something peaceful about the cottage as you relax and enjoy the river-view through its large windows. From past guests' comments and reviews, this cottage seems to be exactly the type of stay everyone is looking for!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      It's wonderful. You can swim, fish, hike, bike, walk, ski or relax with a book or a movie. It has something.. for anyone! Come enjoy yourself. We know you will want to come back! Any questions? Please ask!
