          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1999

          About the owner: My family lives in Ann Arbor Michigan. We have three children, the youngest of whom is 21.

          Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
          We began renting vacation homes in Northern Michigan in the 1980's. It was always a 'shot in the dark' renting homes sight unseen. When we discovered our property in the early 1990's we knew we had found somewhere we could return to every summer. Our three children could swim in the bay which is shallow for quite a ways. We loved tubing and snorkeling in the crystal clear water. There were plenty of 'critters' for the kids to study and catch. The Leelanau peninsula is absolutely beautiful and there are many activities close by. In 1999, when the owner of the property who lives next door offered to sell it to us, we couldn't refuse. We purchased the property in 1999, removed the old cottage and built the new house in 2000. We enjoy getting together with our extended families for reunions so we built Roby's Retreat with family reunions in mind.
