              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1978

              About the owner: I am a retired CPA. This has been my summer home for 35 years. I have been renting it on and off for 20 years.

              Why the Owner Chose Big Arm:
              Nice quiet area with lots of natural beauty. Easy to relax in this spot.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              House and outside decks are close to the water, not a sharp drop off to the water, nice sloping area. Water at the end of the 60 foot long dock is about 6 to 8 feet deep. The clear water of the lake provides a clear view of the bottom of the lake. There is about 4 acres of land, the lawn is about 3 acres with lots of trees.
