              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: We live just under an hour away from this property giving us a chance to enjoy it as much as we hope you do! We have three girls in elementary/middle school and want them to experience great memories at a lakehouse. Craig grew up in the Chicago area and Stephenie is from Northern Michigan. We love the life on the lake and the relaxing atmosphere it brings into our normally busy lives.

              Why the Owner Chose Pierson:
              As our children are growing up, we wanted to give them the memories of having a cottage to experience in the summer (or for those drab winter weekends when we need a change of pace). We decided to buy a property that we could also convert into a vacation rental because we've enjoyed that experience as renters ourselves over the years. We loved this property for several reasons. First, it was a small lake front cottage that had about 2000 square feet added on to it to create a 3000+ square foot luxurious vacation home. We felt this would make it a good place to come with multiple families - because vacations are always more fun when you can share them with people you love to be with! And then, when we reached the top floor we fell in love with the master suite. Each morning we wake up there we realize how blessed we are to be able to experience the views that we do in an amazing space.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This is a large house and is perfect for a family reunion, a girls weekend, a small group vacation, a work retreat, or a larger family to enjoy. We all love getting away, but our jobs might not allow fully being unplugged and as working professionals ourselves, we understand that and have incorporated it into this home. The house has USB ports in convenient locations, wireless internet access, a work area if needed, and remote heating/cooling access so we can have the temperature set and ready for your arrival. For security purposes, the home has a personal coded front door lock that will be specific to you. We tried to make it comfortable for kids and adults by offering quality mattresses in all of the rooms and all of the amenities you might need in the home. The second floor has 2 bunk rooms with 4 beds in each room. The home features two bedrooms with queen size beds (1st floor and 2nd floor) and the 3rd floor is a full master suite with a king size bed and a crib if needed.
