                  Year Purchased: 1963

                  About: Like my mother before me, I have spent summers in Onekama, Michigan all of my life. My mother's family has owned summer vacation property in the Onekama area for four generations, starting with a kit home and land purchased by my mother's father's aunts, who taught school in Chicago in the early 1900s.

                  Why Manistee:
                  I manage the summer rental of The Lion's Share Lake House for my mother Deb and her sister Andrea, the home owners, whose parents Richard and Barbara Bolling designed and built the home in 1963.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  With changes in lifestyles, we are no longer spending all summer in Michigan and we are pleased to open the house for rental to friends, old and new, who know the respite and relaxation of a one week or one month Lake Michigan vacation. We continue to enjoy the Lake House, walks on the beach, and shopping in Traverse City when we open/close the Lake House each year.
