Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Having had many cottage holidays, the proprietors have learned from experience what works and what doesn't. They have endeavoured to provide their ideal vacation rental and, judging from the comments in the Visitors' Book, they have certainly succeeded.

Why the Owner Chose Ganges:
This property is well situated, being just 5 mins from the markets and shopping center in Ganges yet sited within beautiful, rolling, peaceful countryside. The best of both worlds!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
An 'away from it all' experience in the heart of the country. Peaceful, tranquil and private. The long grasses and wildflowers, rarely seen in the city, are in abundance here along with nesting birds, owls, rabbits, deers, frogs, etc.
