Property description

Would you like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life?
Nestled in the woods on 15 beautiful acres, stands the glorious 1890 home which overlooks Grape Arbors and Cherry Orchards.
Lake Cora’s public swimming access is a one minute walk from the house.
The historic nine room farm home has three King Bed rooms, one Queen Bed room and two baths. Sleeps 8-12 guests and 2-4 more if the Coach House is used. The Coach House has a bedroom, living room, dining area, kitchen and bath. We have extra cots and cribs available.
A fire pit with wood awaits a cool night's gathering. There are yard games, two tandem bikes, and two standard adult bicycles in the garage. A charcoal grill, Koi pond and lush gardens.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Susan and Bob Wojcik have owned and operated Oak Cove Resort in Lawrence Mi for over 40 years. They happily have added this 1890 farm home and coach house to their other unique set of travel accommodations. The Wojciks have hosted guests from all over the world and every state in the U.S.

Why the Owner Chose Paw Paw:
This property was purchased in 2011 from a family who had used it as a Bed and Breakfast several decades ago. We used to send them our resort overflow. It has delightful historic turn of the century character. We have lovingly restored it to its former beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
What made us fall in love with this house is its farm style grandeur. It is a Painted Lady of turquoise with white trim. The landscaping is lush and lovely. It is beautiful in the the snow. The views from every window - panoramic. The land is fascinating to explore: a barn in the back, a chicken coop with lace curtains but curiously, no chickens, the Coach House, garages, storage sheds and a deer blind all invite inspection.
