Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: We are both originally Chicagoans, now living in Evanston, IL. Carolyn is an architect and formerly the municipal building official in Evanston. John managed major design and construction projects for Northwestern University. We are retired from all that and started a business called University Icons. In a nutshell, we sell fine are photographs of iconic college buildings. The business draws on John’s long standing avocation of photography, our combined enjoyment of travel, and our mutual interest in architecture. We also own a rental house in Buenos Aires, Argentina, called Casa Palermo, that we visit a couple of times per year. We each have two daughters from previous marriages.

Why the Owner Chose Jacksonport:
After years of vacationing in Door County, we began looking at cottages and land in late summer, 2002, with the idea of either buying or building a summer cabin. We clocked hundreds of miles, over many weekends, driving back and forth across the peninsula in search of the right property. Nothing seemed just right. Carolyn had a yearning for a cabin on the lake, or at least a view, but our budget was slim. Eventually we found ourselves along the Lake Michigan shore, staring into dense woods. In the foreground a sign read, For Sale - 1.5 acres. Curious, we went to take a look. Of course, we fell in love with it the moment we stepped on shore. There was the matter of budget and the price of the land was more than our total budget. (Isn't that always the case?) But concocted a scheme: We would rent the place out to vacationers and enjoy it ourselves when it was free. As soon as our offer was accepted, we began sketching potential designs like mad. We closed on the property in early December, 2002 and cleared the woods for the driveway before Christmas. Construction started the following March, and by the end of the year, the bulk of construction was finished. On January 1, 2004 we launched our website and signed up with VRBO. We spent that spring building and hanging doors, sealing the cabinets, shopping for furniture, etc. It was a photo finish. When our first guests arrived that spring, the paint on the shed doors was still wet. Killasonna Lodge is situated in an area that was developed in 1922 by an enterprising young woman named Annie Reynolds. She called plat of subdivision that she filed with the County “Killasonna Plat.” So we borrowed the name. It serves to recognize her vision. After ten years, we remain extremely pleased with our decisions. The location is tranquil and secluded and the shore is spectacular. As for the house itself, everyone has the same reaction when they first walk in: Their jaw drops.
