Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Married 41 years, five children, twelve grandchildren. My wife and I own a Contract Research Organization which manages clinical trials for the biotechnology industry.

Why the Owner Chose Cardinal, ON, Canada:
We inherited the cottage. It is a fabulous location but quite far from where we live in California. However, we use it two weeks every summer.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
There are lots of birds - geese, ducks, cranes, kingfishers as well as many different types of small birds, due to a large wetland located nearby.
