About the owner: Bob is Michigan Tech graduate he is retired. He worked for 18 years as a Michigan Tech finance administrator,he also worked as the Internal Audior at the White Pine Mine, Controller of a family business in Minnestoa and as a Edward Jones Investment Rep. Current he is a lay pastor at a Lutheran Church in Phoenix, AZ. Kathy is a retired math teacher. We have six kids and 39 grandkids. Bob's Dad was born in 1903 and grew up on Bumbletown Hill 6 miles from Cedar Bay where his grandparents move in 1900. Somebody in the family has owned lakefront protery at Cedar Bay since 1958 family roots go back a long way.
Why the Owner Chose Calumet: I purchase the property hoping to build a home here, I was an administrator at Michigan Tech for over 18 years. In 1993 I, a 45 year old bachelor, married a widow with 6 kids and moved to Minnesota. We built the cabin as a guest house for our kids hoping someday to retire here and build a passive solar home in the hole on the southfacing hillside. Instead we retired in Sun City, Arizona and I became a pastor at a church there. Therefore, unable to spend 6 months here as we did for a few years we now rent it on VRBO when we are not here.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: We enjoy going sauna and swimming with our 39 grandkids and other kids that come to visit us. Making s'mores on a campfire on the beach for the kids while we watch the sunset and the stars come out. Hikes on the nature trails are always fun.
