Year Purchased: 1975
About the owner: This is our Mimi's house! She lives in the cottage the majority of the time but When she is traveling the world or visiting her other grandchildren, she likes for other people to enjoy the lake, like she does. We will make sure your stay is relaxing and very enjoyable. Mimi bought this property to 'get away' from the busy world. We used to live in this house and loved every minute of it.
