                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Owner Kim on the front porch with the sunset in the background and a bootle of wine and cheese on the table, WOW!!! how nice.

                  Why the Owner Chose Middle Bass Island:
                  The 110 foot front porch overloolking the water just steps away, the amount of things to do in the area, the historic value of the Inn, built in 1870

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Enjoy setting on the porch with wine in hand, cheese on the plate and all the birds including the eagle swooping by every once in a while. Enjoy the feel of thinking back of what it must of been like to live here in 1870, how proud they must of been to build such a fine home for those times. Steamers brought a lot of the wood timber and bricks over to build the home.
