THE MANITOBA COTTAGE LIFESTYLE
NAR: Despite these concerns a lakeside property on Lake Winnipeg has never been in greater demand. The man they turn to for their dream at the lake is cottage realtor Jim Hall.

JIM HALL: Everybody in Manitoba talks cottage I think this would have to be the central spot in the world where everyone is cottage oriented. Part of it may go back to their childhood. Most of the people that I sell to have cottaged all their life. They want to recapture those memories that they had in their youth.

They talk to me about I can remember being with my grandfather he took me out on the pier and we fished on the pier till early morning were we could see the mist over the water. They try to recapture what they feel they are missing. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't

NAR: Jim finds three types of buyers.
JIM HALL: There's the young family that wants the beach area and the use of the lake. There's the middle-aged family that is looking for getaways, using it for escape. They have high profile voltage jobs and they want to get away for even a few hours.

Now were in an area that is in transition and were getting a lot of requests for retirement homes or trying to find cottages that can be converted into year round living.

Sometimes people fall in love with a cottage on first sight. And it usually happens with the wife and her eyes pop. I know the guy is dead. He's going to be buying it whether he likes it or not because she's fallen in love with it.

The happiest cottagers tend to be the families that enjoy playing together. People in this area don't even care if it rains it gives them an afternoon to read.

NAR: Like in the city ethnic groups found their own place on the lake
JIM HALL: What you would find at Traverse Bay is Albert Beach that is a very French community. What I kind of enjoy out of it when you go the stores and the people are talking French it kind of reflects on Manitoba and Canada as a whole.

YVETTE: There was a time here that you had to French and Catholic because its the Catholic diocese that used to own the land here. You had to be French Catholic then they changed that. And when they did that we put an Irish sign in front of our cottage we because we're Irish.
