Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: My wife and I are retired, & semi-retired, live in Kitsilano, in Vancouver. We built the cottage a year after we bought the property.

Why the Owner Chose Bowser, BC, Canada:
Driving by, saw a 'for sale' sign on a tree. Phoned the owner and was told the price had just gone up five thousand dollars. We have always been grateful to him for being so reasonable.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our property was untouched when we bought it. We've had to cut down a few trees recently, as a safety measure. We fell in love with an opportunity rather than a pre-existing situation.
