For Americans worried about Donald Trump becoming the United States’ 45th president, a cottage owner in Atlantic Canada may have the perfect Canadian getaway from reality.

Greg Hemmings is looking to sell his cottage located at 11 Memory Lane in Quispamsis, N.B. and is using the U.S. election to help.

The ‘Trump Retreat’ cottage, for sale along Kennebecasis River, is located just over an hour from the Calais, Maine border and features views of the river and wildlife. It’s a convenient roughtly 15 minute drive from Saint John.

Hemmings says the cottage has been listed for the past three summers, and while he’s in no rush to sell, he said a friend in Georgia suggested he use the election as a marketing tool.

“He said ‘are you kidding me? You’re only selling that place for $174,000 that’s insane because nowhere else in the world would you get a waterfront cottage in this natural environment so close to a city, close to an airport for that cheap,‘” Hemmings said.

Hemmings also admits he was swayed after seeing how much interest a Cape Breton tourism campaign offering a similar refuge for Trump-sick Americans received.

He added he doesn’t want to disrespect Trump supporters, saying the cottage would also be a great place for those who would like to see Trump become president.

“Maybe a Trump supporter wants to buy this place, and hey, one way or the other doesn’t matter to me, we will welcome you as a ‘Saint Johner.’  We love the left and the right,” Hemmings said.

Hemmings says he’s gotten some offers on the property from Canadians, but wants to ensure whoever purchases the property is a good fit for the neighbourhood.

While the Cape Breton campaign is said to have resulted in serious inquiries from Americans, president of the Saint John Real Estate Board Shiela Henry told Global News she hasn’t received any calls from people in the U.S. looking to purchase homes in New Brunswick.
