                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1955

                  About the owner: The Lakehouse was a summer cottage built at the turn of the 20th century. Our parents bought and renovated it into an all year round family home. It was a wonderful place to raise a family of 6 children. What better playground than a scenic lake as your front yard!? The Lakehouse continues to be a special place for the siblings to gather and celebrate life's special moments with their extended families.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  private beach, view from the front porch, best sunsets on the entire lake
