              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1988

              About the owner: AHOY THERE: Captain Al & Lucy Tipton here. We are a retired school principal and teacher from the Sault Ste. Marie Area Public Schools. Since then, we have used VRBOs in our winter travels to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the Florida Keys & the Hawaian Islands. We lived in Key Largo in the Florida Keys for 15 winters and spent the 2013/14 winter months of Jan. / April on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. During the past 17 years, we have and still rent from VRBO owners from two week to 4 month stays. We KNOW what our GUESTS EXPECT, because we have experienced the good the bad and the ugly when it comes to the short term rental business. Owning our waterfront rental for 24 years, we know that YOU WANT: CLEAN - SAFE - QUIET & AFFORDABLE WATERFRONT ACCOMMODATIONS. So, if your coming to Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and want this kind of accommodation, PLEASE, e-mail us or give us a call, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Your hosts, Capt. Al & Lucy Tipton, owners.

              Why the Owner Chose Sault Ste. Marie:
              LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION. Our rental is located in one of the most SCENIC locations in Sault Ste. Marie, MI. Water front accommodations are very limited in Sault Ste. Marie so the decision to own and rent was with out a question the thing to do in the SOO.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Watching the passing Lake & Ocean Freighters to and from the Soo Locks and the abundance of wild life that live on the shores of the beautiful St. Marys' River are the real benefits of owning and renting this condo. Closeness to 9 golf courses, 7 Casinos, Mackinaw Island, Tahquamenon Falls and the Agawa Canyon Train trip are the benefits that previous guests have stated year after year.
