Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: My wife and I purchased this property in the late 1980's. We loved being outdoors going boating, fishing, and hunting. I began building The Lodge in the early 1990's. We have used the property for family vacations and a place to stay on the weekends. As our children grew older we began using the cabin less and less. We now enjoy allowing other families to create some of the same memories I have created with my family.
