About the owner: Both my husband and myself grew up in DeTour Village and graduated high school there.We live in Sault Ste Marie Michigan with many ties to DeTour. We visit as often as we can with family and friends to enjoy and share this beautiful spot and home with them. We rent to share this spectacular spot with others and welcome you to our DeTour waterfront home.

Why the Owner Chose De Tour Village:
We purchased this home because the views are so very beautiful and the setting is private. The area is handy to town and people are super friendly. The area is rural but has everything you need nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
We fell in love with the homes remoteness,the views and the comforts. You can sit in the swing nestled in the trees or the one on the beach to watch freighters,birds and wildlife. All this and more from the living room bedroom upstairs or the spacious deck. Must experience this spot to truly experience the beauty. You will fall in love with this setting. We can't wait to share our piece of paradise with you.
