About Our Rental Cottage

This chalet was designed by my uncle Marty Poizner and built by my dad Murray Poizner, in the early 1970’s. I was about 9 years old and I remember going up on the weekends to help.

It was finally ready (well almost ready) in our first season of use. The bathroom did not have any walls yet just curtains and the beds were mattresses on the floor but my family (mom, dad, and my 2 younger sisters)  went up and we had our first Christmas vacation at the chalet. My uncle Marty, his wife (my auntie) Helen, and my two cousins (Rob, and Tracy) joined us that first time and pretty much every holiday and every weekend since then. It was not until I was about 30 that the place stopped being used on a regular basis.

A lot has changed in the 45 years since we built the place  but the place is still home, comfortable andis currently being used as a rental property while my family have matured and pursued other interests.
