          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1911

          About the owner: I have lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba and had the privilege of access to my family cottage, one hour north of Winnipeg, all my life. My grandfather and great-grandfather built the cottage in 1911 and, so, at that time had pick of the property. I have owned it solely since 1992. My sister and her husband live in their permanent residence across the way and my son and I get quality visiting time with them in the summer.

          Why the Owner Chose Gimli:
          As this cottage as been in my family more than 100 years, it means a great deal to me. Though it is only one hour from the City of Winnipeg, it is the most private property in its area and, so, has been a welcome retreat for me from the pressures of work life. Having said that, though, it is minutes (walking) from swimming beaches and only minutes (driving) from local shopping and golf courses. The town of Gimli (10 minute drive to the north) hosts summer arts festivals and a long wide beach where, should you choose, you can rent sea-doos and the like. Winnipeg Beach (5 minute drive to the south) hosts a boardwalk, beach, and picnicking areas. Unique local arts and crafts can be found at both Gimli and Winnipeg Beach.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          The true beauty of this property is its expansive lakefront view. Whether drinking coffee on the Adirondack chairs in the morning and watching the snow white pelicans soar overhead or watching the moon rise over the lake, it is truly a special spot. The cottage itself features the original rich fir paneling but has an updated bathroom and modern amenities. You can quietly read in the sun at the cottage or, within minutes walking distance, partake in local community club family activities or sun and swim at one of two beaches. One of these is perfect for families with small children - shallow sandy-bottomed waters - and the other, boasts a willow and plank pier for swimmers.
