              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: Hi. I'm Dave Schmitz and I grew up in Kiel WI (6 miles from Elkhart Lake). Quit Qui Oc (down the street)was my 'home course' for high school golf. I graduated from the Air Force Academy in 1975, flew fighters in the Air Force for 14 years and have flown for Delta (Northwest) since 1989. You'll quickly realize I was NOT the decorating expert as my talented wife Helen masterminded and executed that plan. Helen grew up in Arizona (our other condo location) and Southern California and graduated from Long Beach State. She is a Civil Engineer and the CEO of HH Engineering Ltd in Detroit. We live in Dearborn MI .

              Why the Owner Chose Elkhart Lake:
              We both love the Elkhart Lake area and plan on retiring there. The people, attitudes, food, and beer are fantastic- we can't wait to retire. We were one of the original purchasers in the Osthoff development. Job demands, distance and our dogs severely limit our Osthoff use. Our custom decor and upgrades don't fit the standardized Osthoff rental plan -- hence the VRBO approach.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Unparalleled amenities. Unspoiled lake and watersports. Fantastic food, bars, and golf all within walking distance. Great staff and locals.
