Our Home & Location
We live on 5 acres, 6 miles SW of Brandon, Manitoba, Canada. Brandon is the second largest city in Manitoba with a population of 50,000. There are many interesting museums & art galleries in Brandon. We live in a modern bi-level house. There is a lovely south-facing deck to watch the many birds, some deer, foxes & coyotes. We are adjacent to pastureland so it is peaceful.
If you combine your house sit here with another in Winnipeg, we are 132 miles from Winnipeg; Manitoba's capital city with a population of 709,000 people....
Winnipeg has much history, old architecture, museums, arts & culture to take in. It is home to "Journey to Churchill" at beautiful Assiniboine Park. This is a great polar bear exhibit. The Canadian Museum of Human rights is the only national museum outside of Ottawa, our nation's capital. We are about 70 miles from Riding Mountain National Park, a lovely park with many wild animals, & beautiful Clear Lake. It has a biosphere reserve designation by UNESCO. It is a popular tourist destination with 300,000 visitors annually.
We are 53 miles from the North Dakota, USA border and the International Peace Garden. + More info
