Owner info

Year Purchased: 1928

Why the Owner Chose Pelican Lake:
This vintage property has been in the family since 1928. It is designed in “cabin, vintage chic”. There are many wonderful family memories here and so we decided to rent out during various summer weeks when the family is unavailable to use it.
