Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: My husband and I have been using the cottage as our vacation home for the past twenty-five years waiting for the day we could retire permanently to Northport. That day arrived 2011 when we built our new home across the street from the cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Northport:
We fell in love with this area in 1985 and have been vacationing here ever since then. There is so much to see and do in this very beautiful peninsula, walking, biking, wineries, casino, swimming, boating, kayaking to name a few. Spring, summer, fall all the season's offer a beautiful landscape in which to gaze.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Our cottage is located in a very private wooded setting where you can view the birds and wildlife in their natural setting.
