Shared Natural Design and Planning Aesthetic: The land deeds include covenants that promote a community of like-minded residents interested in building robust, aesthetically-pleasing four-season dream cottages and vacation homes that blend into the natural setting of the land and lake. The covenants will set out in a clear, predicable and fair fashion the shared responsibilities relating to road access and snow removal. The covenants will also ensure that all owners of this community will respect each other’s visual and acoustic privacy.
Abundant Wilderness with Breathtaking Views: The lake and surrounding hills are teeming with wildlife, offering opportunities to spot white-tailed deer, wild turkey, ruffed grouse, snowshoe hares, blue herons, owls, hawks and eagles, luna moths and monarch butterflies, as well as over 25 species of wild birds. Petit Lac Murray’s shoreline and landscape feature a mixed forest with mature white and red pines, red oak, poplar, maple, basswood, ash and hemlock.
Year-round Recreational Activities: Crown land nearby and the entire surrounding region offers infinite leisure activities such as swimming, fishing, canoeing, hiking, boating, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. Given the abundance of crown land in the wider region there are plenty of opportunities to explore uncharted lands with bikes, ATVs and snowmobiles – on trails and beyond.
