About the owner: I, Wendy Anderson Halperin am a children's book illustrator and have artwork from children's books in the house. My husband John is a stone sculptor and storyteller . We work and travel a great deal in the summers because of our work so we love having families enjoy the peace and beauty the lake offers. One daughter is a dancer so we built a dance floor/deck in front of the house . It is also a very nice place to sit, do yoga etc. Our son is a restaurant manager so he built the pizza oven in the east part of the property. Only if you have experience in wood fired ovens can we offer up it's use. Our other daughter is a textile designer and so her art is also in the house. If you enjoy hand made this house all about hand made.
