Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We have been property owners on Pine Lake since the fall of 1991. We first purchased vacant property, put out a dock, bought our first boat and enjoyed the lake on day trips while living in Kalamazoo. We built our cottage in 1997 and spent most of the summer and weekends in the off season until we just didn't go home in the fall of 2004. We bought this cottage in 2006, sold our first house in ' 07 and built our current home in '08. We are blessed and love living on Pine Lake, enjoying the family time with our 2 kids, 5 grandchildren and two labs (happy lake dogs). Pine Lake is a wonderful place to be any time of the year.

Why the Owner Chose Kalamazoo:
When this cottage went on the market, we knew it would be a wonderful place to offer as a lake rental. The cottage has such character being the only authentic log home on the lake. I understand that it was built by a man that taught cabinetry at Michigan Career and Technical Institute here on Pine Lake and you will notice the good use of space with all of the built ins. It is the perfect lake getaway spot!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The only authentic log home on Pine Lake.
