                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1984

                          About the owner: I am a registered nurse turned real estate broker for the last 32 years. I had 5 wonderful boys and my thought was that I could not take them on a more wonderful vacation than to go to Lake Okoboji. I bought this home in 1984 and enjoyed it for many years. 2 years ago it was entirely rebuilt, so everything is brand new. The boys have grown up and bring their families to the lakes now. It is a tremendous place to make many memories!

                          Why the Owner Chose Okoboji:
                          I think if you looked all year you would not find a nicer, newer, or more state of the art home than this. It is large enough for the family. The function and design of the home is superior to most on the lake. It also offers an exquisite sandy beach and large front yard viewing the gorgeous blue waters of Okoboji. The low beach and yard are very hard to find. It is located right off of highway 9 which is so convenient to shopping, groceries, movies, etc.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          I have traveled extensively and I have not seen many places like Lake Okoboji. I fell in love with this unique place because I can go out and have a 5 star dinner, or, sit in my swing and lazily read a book. The water activities are second to none, and I can go to the park and hear bands every weekend that are usually free. My home is extremely comfortable and has every convenience so I can relax entirely.
