                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I grew up in Michigan and spent summers in NW Michigan. Unfortunately, in the early 80's, the Michigan economy necessitated that I move to Denver first, then to Texas. I still try to get 'home' as often as I can to see the magnificent beauty of NW Michigan.

                  Why the Owner Chose Traverse City:
                  Growing up in Michigan, our family used to vacation on Long Lake. I, like my brothers and parents, formed many fond memories on this beautiful lake. My hope in buying the cottage, was to provide the opportunity for my wife and children to form similar memories on Long Lake and NW Michigan.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The area of the lake that the cottage is on, is in a well protected cove and therefore typically very calm water. This calm water also is a plus as the local 'Loon' population very often is seen and heard out in front of the cottage. The cottage is well covered by trees so the cottage usually stays cool with breezes off of the lake.
