                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: I officially retired at the end of December, 2011 and Shana (my wife) is semi-retired (4 months each winter). We have a home in Playa Del Carmen which is our winter place. We love the lake house, which we built in 2009, but need extra income to make our dream come true. Lakehouse in the Summer and Mexico in the Winter!

                  Why the Owner Chose Winnipeg:
                  Our vacation home is located 110 km (70 miles) NW of Winnipeg, just 10 km East of Lac Du Bonnet. You get just the right mix of people and quiet time...on the long weekends, it gets busy, then back to quiet during the week. Nearby, you'll find Pinawa Dam Provincial Park with hiking trails or check out the suspension bridge and hiking/biking trails near Pinawa. We have been coming here for 14 years, in a trailer/cabana for 11 years and now in a beautiful lake home. The water is beautiful for swimming, tubing, waterskiing, fishing or just floating in a lounger by the dock. Our neighbours are great and because we are in cottage country, everyone is friendly.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  There's something special about getting up early in the morning and walking down to the water when it is still and calm like a giant mirror. Even sitting at the table on the deck enjoying your morning coffee with the birds is an unbelievably relaxing way to start your day. There is a provincial park (a 5-minute drive or a 15 minute canoe paddle) which is an old dam with hiking trails throughout (well worth the trip). If you are feeling energetic, the Trans-Canada Trail starts at the dam and goes all the way to the town Pinawa as it follows the Channel (about 14 km). In Lac Du Bonnet, you can go for Chinese food at the Lakefront Hotel or if chicken or pizza is more your fancy, Chicken Chef is a great choice. There is also a Subway and restaurants for dining at 4 hotels in town. There are 3 Golf courses nearby, Pinawa Golf and Country Club, Granite Country Club (both 18-hole) and Black bear, a nice 9-hole course; all have a club-house and restaurant.
