The cottage is located on a private country acreage in a mature birch / mixed wood forest called Greenley Acres Retreat. The homesite is pleasant with many open areas and a western exposure for soaking up the rays and watching the sunsets on the 50' private dock.

The cabin is surrounded by abundant wildlife, great fishing lakes, fly fishing rivers, trails and fresh air. Features of cabin include evening fires by firepit lakeside, mountain biking, good swimming, badminton area, good hunting/fishing and listening to the loons call out.
