About Carolyn Long
Bill's roots run deep in Ontario. His paternal great great grandfather pioneered an acreage about an hour and a half north of Toronto. As a child, Bill's family moved to a farm five miles from the cabin. Both of his sons were born and raised in Huntsville. And although he lived in western Canada for almost 20 years, Muskoka and Huntsville were still home. Bill had experience with the production of maple syrup while growing up. His family had 60 trees tapped on their 188 acre farm. He has also done logging, design and building of homes and renovations. Bill is a Master Electrician by trade, which comes in handy on a property like this. Carolyn spent many happy summer days as a child, escaping Toronto on family vacations for the rock and water of Muskoka. She too moved away to the west, which is where they met and married. She cut her teeth in design, marketing and sales in her 20s, using her arts background. Then moved into administration for large companies, until her independent streak could not be contained. She has run or managed small businesses ever since. What has tied all of their experience together is a love of travel and meeting new people. Both preferring alternative accommodations, they have experienced the best and the worst of the vacation rental industry. Their favourite VR's are the inspiration for the cabin and the property. Their goal, affordable luxury and great service.
Why Carolyn Long chose Huntsville
Bill and Carolyn Long had been planning to move to Vancouver Island to purchase some property and develop a business, while still pursuing their passions of hiking, skiing, and kayaking. That all changed in the fall of 2016 when, on a visit back to Bill's hometown of Huntsville, Ontario, they stumbled across a log cabin for sale, on 90 acres of maple forest with an existing, small maple syrup business. It was their habit to look at real estate whenever they visited a new place, and discuss what the possibilities might be. This trip was different, for many reasons. Before they even set foot in the cabin, they walked the property. It was late fall, so all the leaves were off the trees and you could see for quite a distance. They talked about how they could manage and conserve this forest. Something just clicked and they knew this was where they wanted to be.
