About the owner: My wife Maureen and I grew up in Michigan, and we love going to northern Michigan. Ever since 1984, I’ve been coming to Pratt Lake. My wife and I knew we’d be going back to Pratt as often as we could. As our family grew, we found Pratt to be the perfect place to take the kids. They couldn't get enough of the lake. There was no question, we had to invest in our own 'Pratt Lake cottage.' We hope you'll enjoy all that Pratt Lake and northern Michigan has to offer. You'll want to keep coming back too! TJ and Maureen, Portage, MI.
Why the Owner Chose Gladwin: Our family bought on Pratt Lake 30 years ago and I spent every summer on the lake as a child. When our cottage was listed in 2007, we knew we wanted to create memories for our children just the same and bought it the same day it listed.
