Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Out of all the places in the world I have traveled for business, I love northern Michigan and the waters of Benzie County the most. My wife is an interior designer and this rental home gave us the opportunity to completely renovate an authentic 1870's structure and transform it into a bright, colorful vacation cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Elberta:
Elberta is near our primary residence and right on the water. The town is quaint and close to so many of the attractions that make coastal Northern Michigan famous, including a pristine Lake Michigan beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Expertly renovated and filled with light and color, this house has water views, fresh breezes and peaceful sunsets. Eagles soar overhead as you grill the day's catch and fix salad from the farmer's market.
