          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1982

          About the owner: My mother and dad bought the Strawberry lake property in the early 80’s. It was intended to be their place to escape to....quiet peaceful, great fishing and lots of visitors. Eagles, river otter, loons, deer, “etc.” Their first cottage on the property was a 25 foot used trailer that Dad bought for $500 dollars - not the huge home you see now.

          Why the Owner Chose Cadillac:
          If you look in the lower level bathroom you will discover the hole in the concrete floor where dad sunk a well point 4 feet into the ground water for our drinking water. Before we could use it, Dad had it tested and the chemist wanted to know where he found such pure water. Being an engineer, my dad knew that the source was the springs that feed Strawberry Lake. By the way, if you wondered about the name “Strawberry Lake,” in the summer the flowers that bloom in the lake look very much like Strawberry plants. My dad designed the house with of course input from Geri, my mother. They constructed the basement first, and used that for a weekend getaway until they built the rest of the house in 1991. The house was designed to function as an entertainment center with the Lake as the focal point. Fourth of July (Mom's birthday) always found the house crowded with visitors...Mom’s brothers and their families from Wisconsin and many local residents just dropping by. There have been several weddings at the lake including mine, and my sister’s. Mom liked to cook and was very good at feeding lots of people, so the holidays were always busy. She would cook for the many deer hunters who visited the house for the annual November 14th party. I do however believe that her favorite occasion was the annual “Thanksgiving Dinner.”

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          The house truly is a four season playground . It can be a serene, healing experience, or a place bubbling with a variety of family activities - swimming, fishing, volleyball, and the older folks playing cards on the spacious decks soaking in the energy of the lake and the forest.
