Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Born and raised in Michigan currently live in Chicago. Purchased this property in 1996 and tore down and rebuilt in 2008-09.

Why the Owner Chose St. Helen:
My wife has been coming up to this lake since she was in high school. We bought this property because of the location and what surrounds. Even on the busiest of holidays the lake is never busy! With 28 miles of shoreline only 4 miles are built on and that makes this the perfect lake. When we lived in Michigan it was a 2 hour trip and we were away from the every day hustle, now it takes us about 4.5 hours from Chicago. This property is 15 minutes from Higgins Lake, Houghton Lake and West Branch. Only 75 minutes from Traverse City and 90 minutes from Mackinac Island and the Upper Peninsula. Located just minutes from quality golf clubs such as The Dream, The Nightmare, The Quest, Forest Dunes and Fox Run. 15 minutes from the outlet mall in West Branch.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the 'private like' lake and the sunsets and the ability to take a short day trip to some great activities!
