                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: Ryan and I purchased Bayou Beginnings in the fall of 2011. We were married in the home in December 2011 in front of the main floor fireplace! We live in Grand Haven with our son, Brock, and our 3 Labs.

                  Why the Owner Chose Spring Lake:
                  We love to go boating! While we currently live in Grand Haven we have always wanted a lake house with a dock. We plan to move into Bayou Beginnings in 2017.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home is prime SL property...on a hill, facing west and no bridges blocking traffic into the bayou.
