Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We lived here for a short time between 2009 and 2012. Originally grew up on Pine Lake and returned to the community in 2007 when we purchased the hotel, now the full service Best Western Plus. Try our Timbers Restaurant or Rother's Pub for good food and drink! Just a three minute stroll away.

Why the Owner Chose LaPorte:
We've fond memories of days on Pine Lake, my having grown up on the lake. So few lakefront properties ever come available. So in 2008 we were blessed when this came available.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage rental provides vacationers direct access to Pine lake for boating and/or fishing with our private dock at your front door....and the sunset views are extraordinary. Enjoy a cocktail at the end of the day from the deck or screened gazebo. We also offer the unique ability to provide addition sleeping arrangements if necessary through out arrangement with the Best Western Plus...just a 3 minutes stroll away.
