                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Jon and Jean purchased the property from an 80 year old school teacher and his wife who decided to retire in S. Carolina with their son. The husband and wife spent every summer for 40 years driving from Michigan to summer vacation here, and managing their cherry orchard.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bigfork:
                  We always dreamed of owning a place on the lake, and when we met this charming couple who wanted to sell to us, we decided to finally do it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The beautiful lot, with the large fir trees toward the lake and the fruit trees in the back of the property were a great attraction to us. We wanted to have a beautiful place where our children and grandchildren could gather for family occasions, to have fun and build memories and strengthen bonds.
