                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1982

                          About the owner: Originally from Bethesda, MD outside of Washington, DC. Teacher and Executive Secretary at Blue Cross 1970-1994 in Lansing, MI. Permanently moved to Pentwater in 1997. Moved into Mack Place Condos in town (by the blue water tower) in 2005 and opened up the Lakehouse for rentals. Used to sail up and down Lake Michigan shoreline from 1972-1982.

                          Why the Owner Chose Pentwater:
                          Bought this property in 1982 because it was on Pentwater Lake. Beautiful view in the fall! Easy acces to town.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          In the winter, Monroe Road gets plowed all the time as it's near a turn-around area for the snowplows!
