Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: George is a retired store owner and teacher. Pauline is retired from a State of MI job. We are in our mid-sixties and working part-time while enjoying the income from our rental units. George was born in Cologne, Germany and became a US citizen in 1976. I was born and raised in Detroit. He and I have been together now for 30 years. We moved to the U.P. (Upper Peninsula of Michigan) in 1993 and became the owners of the small Iroquois Grocery store which we sold in 2005. We are enjoying our combined fifteen grandchildren and three greats. We love living on the shores of Lake Superior in the North Country called the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
Why the Owner Chose Brimley:
We chose to buy this property because it is on the beautiful shores of Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay and also because of the sparse population, clean air, bountiful water and surrounding national forest. Our Lake Superior Beach House rental was just a run-down shack that my husband and brother renovated completely in 2006 adding a lot of insulation, thicker walls, a full bathroom, new roof and exterior log siding and tongue and groove pine on the inside. We then added onto it in 2008 a full kitchen and master bedroom, and attached deck. A new deck was added at the top of the stairs to the beach in 2012. Six new steps down to the beach were added in 2014 after water levels rose then fell again taking away some sand.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The benefits we enjoy while staying at this property is that we get to meet such great people and share our beautiful pristine Upper Peninsula and clean air. What a difference from being in the city!
