142 top-notch cottage lots on offer

  • Print

A group of 142 prime cottage lots will become available this summer as part of the province's Cottage Lot Draw Program.

The program, in place since 2004, has given Manitobans a chance to purchase or lease cottage lots at market value on Crown land or in provincial parks through a public draw.

The 142 lots that will open up are lots that were selected in the draw process but came back to the province either because people cancelled, failed to build on it within the two-year time allotment or the deal fell through.

"These will go through another draw process. We don't have any dates on that yet but that is upcoming this summer," said Lori Stevenson, director of land for Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship. "These are a variety of lakefront, waterfront and all areas of the province." The Cottage Lot Draw Program has so far resulted in 929 lots purchased or leased out of 1,392 originally put up.

There were 320 cottage lots not taken in the draws made available in the First Come First Served Cottage Lot Program, which is ongoing. In that program, 98 lots have been sold or leased.

Among the 222 still available, 219 are available for purchase and three for lease. There is waterfront property, but most are in more remote locations.

To check out availability in the First Come First Served program, go to www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/fcfs_cottaging/lts_available.html.
