Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The Calgary based owners have been spending their last 17 summers along with their 3 kids at Big Island. It is a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of big city life and have the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the natural beauty of the area. Doug is a native of Antigonish and remembers spending time on Big Island beach as a kid.
