                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: We are a family that has enjoyed entertaining in our home with family and friends. We hope to share that with you and make many more friends.

                      Why the Owner Chose Manitowish Waters:
                      As a child my husband grew up visiting friends in the 'Northwoods' with his family. We soon started coming up together and looking for a second home to vacation in. We have started a family and raised them in the same tradition of vacationing in the 'Northwoods'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We treat you more like a guest in our home than a renter. We have entertained a lot so we know what it takes to stock a house for fun. We try not to overlook anything and will make your stay enjoyable
