Bought our land on the river
« on: May 21, 2017, 09:59:47 AM »
We've been looking for a camp or land on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada for several years.  Land with riparian rights is difficult (and can be VERY expensive) to find.  An old friend decided he could part with what he calls the wood field (where he's stored fire wood and timber for years) and the land down to the river, including 100 feet of riparian rights at the tail-out of his salmon pool.  Couldn't be happier...and our young English setter is even happier - grouse and woodcock everywhere.  Here's the view down to the river:



The "wood field" proper:


The driveway will go here.  The property is on a little lane with only two other camps on it:



The land is a high perch, above the level where river ice can wipe out a structure.  Likely will wait until next year to start building.  This year we'll just concentrate on the permitting process, which is a real bear in New Brunswick.  We'll be building a two bedroom, single bath camp on a crawl space.  It will be winterized.  We're only allowed to be in Canada for a total of six months per year, some of which will be centered around Christmas time.
