Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Richard has been a log home builder for 27 years. Richard and Katie have both seen their partners go through cancer and pass away. Then God so graciously brought us together in 2005. Richard had 11 children and Katie had 9 which gives us the grand total of 20. One passed on in 2000 so we cherish the others though most of them are now married and do not live at home. 48 grandchildren. We enjoy all the natural beauty around us. We greatly appreciate what ' Our loving Father in Heaven' has created for our enjoyment. ' The answer is Jesus with-in'

Why the Owner Chose Cadillac:
We are using this beautiful log home as a model as we share it with others. Totally relaxing!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
I always enjoyed water, The depth of the lake and the high ground with its ever green trees all around is what drew me to this location. You will have to experance it yourself to know what i am saying. Bond with your children and grandchildren as you spend time together--------Richard & Katie-------
