                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: I am a native of 69 years. Avid hiker and winter sports. Knowledgeable of the area. Will take you or show you how or where to go. I horseback ride and love animals. Like to fish.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  It is home. My dad was born here and spent his whole life here. Parents created a resort on Whitefish lake in the late '30s...we reside in one of the original cabins (remodeled). Mother mainly ran the resort with the help of my grandparents. Dad was an engineer on the Great Northern Railroad. Just had my 50th class reunion for Whitefish High School. I bought this house to live in while dad was able to care for himself in his house. It is the best area one could ask to live in.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  In a few words...peaceful and relaxing.
