General Description

A bright, cheery and very charming little cottage. Approx. 2000′ shoreline and about 85′ acres of property on Bow Lake, just off Hwy 28 (less than 10 k), south of Bancroft. We have developed several walking trails throughout the property including one that reaches the top of a cliff, affording extensive views in all directions. Visit the Prayer Wall and feel the high vibration of the many crystals and minerals that are naturally occurring on this sacred piece of land. Richard & Monica are on the same property approx. 500′ from this cottage. The log cottage has been extensively renovated in 2004/05 with open, pine finished vaulted ceilings, skylights, modern kitchen, sunroom/porch and new outside bathroom.
