Carolin Boysen and Alex Lacher
Born and raised in Switzerland, Carolin and Alex immigrated to Canada in May of 1999. In April 2000 they dived into their first experience in the tourism industry when they bought a cottage resort just north of Huntsville, Ontario (Muskoka area).
In the same year during high season, Linda was born at the local hospital. After six successful seasons as resort owners and managers, an irresistible offer was presented to them by a third party to purchase the business. Not wanting to give up on that opportunity and the chance to explore the west of Canada, the young family moved to the Okanagan Valley in BC, where Carolin was heavily involved in a private school through volunteering and a seat on the board of directors while Alex attended and completed a course in vineyard management.
At the same time, they started their own property management business which they kept on proceeding until they bought their current venture Twin Birch. After two years and feeling homesick for the beauty of Ontario, the family moved back to their starting point in Huntsville.
Beside the property management business, they expanded their house into a B&B, another successful involvement in the tourism industry. Slowly but surely getting tired of long winters up north (a sign of age!), it was decided that a change had to occur yet again.
After a 3 months research trip to Nicaragua it became clear however that the future should and would be in Canada, but this time somewhere in Prince Edward County. Luckily, in the spring of 2013, an opportunity presented itself when it was discovered that Twin Birch was for sale. It didn’t take long to get to an agreement with the previous owners and on July 2nd, 2013, a new chapter in their eventful life started for Carolin, Alex and Linda with the purchase of Twin Birch.
