Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I live in Denver, Colorado and own a canine physical therapy business. I left Michigan after I graduated from college because I wanted to live in the mountains. It has been wonderful but do look forward to returning to Suttons Bay Michigan some day.

Why the Owner Chose Suttons Bay:
Suttons Bay is my childhood home. I purchased this property for my retirement. I am happy to share this property with people because Suttons Bay and Leelanau county is a very special place. It hasn't been touched by big box stores and provides a wonderful setting to get away from it all.
