Why the Owner Chose Gardner Creek, NB, Canada

My home was left to me from my parents and the location is so spectacular it made perfect sense to do this with the old farm house. High on a hill overlooking the beautiful Bay of Fundy, in a peaceful, caring community. The old farm house was designed so well to do something like this that it all worked out in the long run. A few new renovations in bathrooms, laundry,common areas and new kitchen updates made it work.
People love the space and quietness that it offers to them. I had one guest sitting out in the chairs on my veranda one morning meditating as the sun came up over the bay and he said he had not experienced another situation like this in his travels for a long time. That made me feel so good for him and the fact that I had decided to do this for others to enjoy. Big cities are great but sometimes you just need to get out of that noise and confusion and take time to breathe fresh air and have some space to roam around on with out bumping into others.
