Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I am retired from running a training business for the criminal justice field - police, judges, dispatch, and federal agents. Have pursued that career in the U.S. and foreign countries. Before that I was a professor of communications. Served in Peace Corps in Africa. Have traveled extensively. Born in Detroit, grew up in Farmington, lived in Malawi, Africa; London, England; and Edinburgh, Scotland. and Dublin, Ireland. Hobbies are reading, cross country skiing, travel, attending theater and concerts and eating out.
Why the Owner Chose Tawas City, MI, USA:
I bought The Cottage because it is next to my home on Lake Huron and therefore easy to manage and deal with the needs of my clients. I also enjoy meeting new people and hearing their stories! It is especially nice for those looking to get away and enjoy some quality time. Every morning on Lake Huron is a new beginning because the lake rarely looks the same. Bald eagles fly up and down the beach hunting a meal. The occasional loon dives and sounds it's eerie call. And, in the fall and spring the ducks and geese land and take off in their annual migrations.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Staying at The Cottage in the Fall is a real treat. Enjoy a later night fire and watch the moon rise over the lake. In the winter cross country ski in the Huron Forest on the Corsair trails. Sleep on a pillow top mattress and have the soothing waves of Lake Huron lull you to sleep. Sip a steaming cup of coffee or tea and watch the sun rise. Grab a glass of wine or make yourself a drink and watch the Harvest Moon rise. This is a place to be really lazy - or indulge in as many activities as one pleases -- biking, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, reading, sunbathing, skiing, shopping, wine drinking, etc. State park beaches also nearby.
