                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1985

                  About the owner: Everyone here seems to have a history to this lake, and the lake has a history of its own. There is a book in the house with a story from everyone on the lake. Once home to some stars and singers as a getaway when performing in Chicago.

                  Why the Owner Chose Watersmeet:
                  We looked for a house to rent on this lake forever. It never happened so we camped for years. I would have killed to be able to rent here at one time. Its sometimes hard to tell if its going to be as clean and nice as the description. Once you open the door you will breathe a sigh of relief. Most people book for the same time each year in advance. Its right on the lake and so close because they allowed you to build much closer years ago. The screen porch is great because as you know the bugs can be crazy in the U.P. although they haven't been as bad the last few years. The good thing is you can sit in the screen porch and still enjoy the fire and the view of the lake.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The views cannot be beat. So quiet you can hear the eagles wings in flight or see them swoop in for a fish. The sunsets are only rivaled by the full moons. There are more stars than you could ever count. There are so many things that you could do and enough reasons to do nothing at all. I can't imagine not being able to come here. Something about it grabs you and never lets go. We are allowing dogs because half the fun of our vacations are enjoying it with our labs. We only ask that you be conscientious about the house and furniture. There are extra sheets you can throw on the bed or couch if your pet likes to sneak up there. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
