Bent Tree and Big Canoe

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 admin@benttreevoice.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).

The 2011 proposed change to the Bent Tree Drive / Cove Road sign

Click here and here for related earlier posts from March of this year.

A member of the Amenities Promotion Committee created the photoshopped image shown below, to give the 2011 Board of Directors an example of the committee’s proposed change. The purpose of a sign is to communicate a message.  Determining that message is a critical step in effective sign design.
