Bent Tree and Big Canoe are both beautiful, unique communities. Many potential buyers look at both and discover which one feels right for them. Big Canoe is more refined and manicured; Bent Tree is more laid-back and rustic.
The following is a brief comparison of some key aspects of both communities (click image below to zoom or click here for pdf). If anyone sees something that needs to be corrected on the comparison, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with the information and I will get it updated. Both communities offer much more than what is shown below (i.e. hiking trails, playgrounds, bocce courts, numerous organized clubs and activities).
46 Golf View Court in Bent Tree just hit the market with an asking price of $225,000. The house includes 4 bedrooms, 4½ baths, and the lot is almost 2½ acres (a five lot combination).

The picture below shows the house and private front yard as seen from the street, looking down the driveway.. The back of the house overlooks the 18th green and should have some nice winter views of the lake and mountains.
