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 email@example.com 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).
It’s been nice to see all the horseback riders out and about in Bent Tree this spring. Yesterday, I came across two different groups within a few minutes. The header above shows one group crossing the road near the stables. The photo below, of another group, was taken at the spillway.
The geese have been hanging out in a corner of the lake by the dam. Maybe they were still molting, so unable to fly away when the fireworks went off, and decided to retreat to the furthest corner away from the beach area.

The Bent Tree employees put on a fantastic fireworks show on the 4th of July. There’s something extra special about watching the fireworks in Bent Tree. The reflection on the lake, the echoes of the fireworks booming off the mountains, the background chorus of frogs and cicadas…it’s hard to beat. And, the thunderstorms held off just long enough for the festivities.
It looks like there was no “Goose Roundup” in Bent Tree this year. On Tuesday, the geese found a quiet area of Lake Tamarack, away from the Pot Luck Dinner crowd at the beach. The geese may still be in the molting process. If so, they are unable to fly right now. If they are through with the process of losing old flight feathers and growing new ones, it’s possible that tomorrow’s fireworks will scare them away.
