Most of us have thought about owning our own Tiny Home (TH) vacation property at one time or another. But perhaps you’ve found the cost of purchasing suitable land, getting permits and inspections, installing sanitation systems and drilling wells just too much to handle let alone pay for. And don’t forget having to deal with government permit requirements, inspectors as well as finding a reputable construction contractor.
While time shares are an option, you then find yourself restricted to using your significant investment for whatever specific time frame you have purchased or trying to trade with someone else which in itself can be difficult. The fact of the matter is you never actually own it but rather have to share it with up to fifty other strangers.
Many of us have dreamed and planned for a new less stressful life style. Tiny Homes have been and continues to be a great example and a major first step in this direction. Some may wish to live permanently or part time in these ever popular units.
Located along the Fundy Coast near Alma, New Brunswick we are an hour’s drive from Moncton and less than an hour and a half from Saint John or Fredericton N.B. The American border is with a two hour drive along mostly 4 lane highways.
FundyRidge consists of 26 acres of land surrounded by a Federal Wetland Reserve, overlooking the world famous Mary’s Point International Bird Wildlife Sanctuary and the Bay of Fundy. It’s only a 20 minute drive from the entrance to the beautiful Fundy National Park and just minutes from pristine sand beaches and other tourists’ attractions including Cape Enrage, the Shepody River, and World Famous Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park and a private kayaking opportunities. How popular is this area?
The Hopewell Rocks and Fundy National Park are the two most popular tourist’s attractions in New Brunswick with nearly three quarters of a million (3/4 million) visitors annually. That’s nearly twice that of all other provincial attractions combined. With the scheduled completion of the breath taking Fundy Motor Trail (2018), projections are for an additional 170,000 visitors annually to this area.
Unique to Fundy Ridge is a fabulous view of the world famous Mary’s Point International Bird Sanctuary and Shepody Wetlands Federal Reserve. Many forms of wildlife are abundant as are hiking trails, hunting, fishing, bird watching and numerous canoeing and kayaking opportunities. For the horse back riding enthusiast you have a choice of two local facilities, one of which is within walking distance of your door. The area also offers numerous opportunities to see genuine New Brunswick crafts being made by local artisans. You can even take courses in pottery making or glass blowing just to mention a few.
Should you wish to make your Tiny Home an all season experience you can enjoy numerous winter activities such as skating on the wetlands, cross country skiing and snow shoeing right from your own door step. You can take advantage of the excellent winter programs and services offered by Fundy National Park or enjoy downhill skiing at Poly Mountain, less than an hour’s drive away. And let’s not forget those famous New Brunswick snowmobile trails.
While The Fundy Ridge Community has enough space to host literally dozens of Tiny Homes, it is our intention to minimize participation. This ensures both privacy and a share of the wonderful scenic view for everyone.
We are confident that this opportunity will be of interest to many and provide years of enjoyment. The Fundy Ridge Tiny Home Community provides easy access from major urban centers and the Eastern United States. For a minimum investment you get an assurance of friendly environmentally conscious neighbors, a breathtaking scenic view and endless recreational opportunities.
Future plans include the construction of a private fishing/recreational pond, community gazebos and fireplace and expanded hiking/cross country skiing trails. For those who like to tinker in the basement, a service barn will contain an area for member’s complete crafts or other projects requiring the use of light wood working tools. Additionally a concerted effort will be made to expand winter season activities to make your investment a truly year round experience.
