                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We completed construction on our lake house in 2000. Since Bob retired from practicing medicine in 2006, we enjoy traveling and spending the summers in Wisconsin near Lake Michigan. Our favorite seasons at the lake are Fall and Spring. The lake has always been a great place to create warm memories for us as well as our friends and we hope you will feel the magic here as well.

                  Why the Owner Chose Grand Lake of the Cherokees:
                  We actually bought the property back in 1992. There was originally an old 1950's house that had no curb appeal and we saw the potential. The fact that we have 600+ feet of shoreline and a protected cove for our boat dock made it the perfect location as well as the fact we are at the end of the road!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  There are actually five separate porches (three are covered) where you can sit out and enjoy the world or chat with your friends and family. It is intimate and yet everyone can easily have their own space. You can also sit down at the table on the dock and enjoy the sounds of nature or share a meal. Another feature we offer is our wonderful home manager Helen. We could never rent the house without Helen's help. Helen coordinates our housekeeping crew and makes sure everything is in perfect order for your stay. She will meet you at the house and show you it's special features and answer any questions you may have. We have rented houses where no one meets you, the key is missing and the house was not cleaned properly so we know how important those details are to anyone choosing to rent a luxury home or apartment.
