                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: Your Hosts, Roger and Cathy, moved to the estate ten years ago and painstakingly restored to main log home to its original beauty. The property was developed to compliment and blend with the indigenous forest and woodland species and stream fed lake. If you are a gardener, you will appreciate the wide variety of unusual trees and plants as well as an indigenous garden. Besides our day jobs, we are both glass artisans and spend many hours in our working studio using large kilns to produce functional glass art. We look forward to sharing our property with you!
