                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: Pictured is my boy with a 'catch.' I am a busy mom of a teenage boy and teenage triplet girls. My husband is a business owner in the next resort town over, South Haven. Since we are such a large family and are too large for one hotel room, I discoverd the comfort of staying in vacation homes. I maintain my own properties, with the help of my kids in the suummer, and make sure they are clean and well kept.

                          Why the Owner Chose Saugatuck:
                          Saugatuck is such a beautiful area with Lake Michigan and this home sits on Lake Goshorn.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The beautiful views and the warm water of the lake! My kids actually enjoy swimming in Lake Goshorn more than Lake Michigan because Lake Goshorn is so warm in July and August. We have a firepit outdoors, a paddle boat, kayak and canoe. There is a bike trail into downtown Saugatuck is just down the road - so bring your bikes!
