              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1997

              About the owner: Rick and Kathy Rees are the owners of this property. Rick teaches at Arenac Eastern Schools in Twining and Kathy is a elementary school principal. We have three grown children and two adopted daughters, Jazmyne (6) and Jiayi (3) who we Internationally Adopted from China in the last four years. Our Jazmyne calls the lake house her 'castle'. We all love this house!

              Why the Owner Chose Hope:
              We bought this house because of its spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding area. The first time we walked around the back of the house and took in the views we knew that we were home! Lake size was certainly attractive to us so we could get out and really boat for miles. Wixom Lake is a huge lake which can be boated over 20 miles in either of two directions.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property is just beautiful whether it is spring, summer, fall or winter time. In the summer, waterskiing, tubing and fishing are excellent with miles of water spots to choose from. A picnic on the lake at Pontoon Alley is always great for little kids with its clear shallow swimming area. In the fall, a leisurely color tour up river is a wonderful way to spent the day. In the winter time, snowmobiling up the frozen lake or in the nearby miles of state land is a blast, with a log on the fire and some hot chocolate waiting for you when you get back. As you can see what is not to love about this year round vacation home!
