Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My husband, Bob and I have enjoyed owning our vacation home since 1985. We brag about our four grown sons, our three daughters in law and our nine grandchildren. We are both professional musicians. I am music director and organist at a Presbyterian church, retired public school music teacher. My husband is retired from his business career, plays percussion both classical and jazz. We both enjoy our vacation home and the most fun of all is having the family there with us.

Why the Owner Chose Oden:
We chose this location because we like Crooked Lake, swimming, boating and all that the area has to offer. We also enjoy the winter skiing, the summer concerts at the Bay View Music Festival just five miles away. There are lots of fine restaurants nearby and fun shopping in Harbor Springs, Petoskey and Charlevoix. Newly completed bike trail one block from the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Crooked lake is always a real pleasure. Swimming, boating or simply looking at it's beauty with the hills behind it, the sunrise in the morning, the waterfowl on the lake, and the colorful wind surfers. It is always interesting, always beautiful. A favorite is the one mile lighted walk along the lakeshore.
