Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Owners Barb and Steve are retired teachers. We purchased the Gladstone guest house from Barb's grandmothers estate. Twin Oaks has been a labor of love and a place we hope to someday retire. We love to travel, sail, and ski.(Photo from recent visit to Peru). In recent years we have traveled to Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Eastern Europe, Iceland, Norway, and Denmark. The world is beautiful but not more beautiful than Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Last winter we visited the ice caves near Trenary. They were amazing! Someday we would like to visit all the waterfalls in the U.P. Last summer we went to Isle Royal, which is a beautiful island in Lake Superior.

Why the Owner Chose Gladstone, MI, USA:
Twin Oaks is across the street from the Gladstone City Park with great views and access to Little Bay De Noc off Lake Michigan. It is very family friendly! Location-Location-Location! As a child Barb helped her grandmother take care of the cabins that were next door. The rooms in Twin Oaks Guest House were also rented out as a part of grandma's business. Barb and Steve are the 3rd generation to share this special property.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Twin Oaks has the charm of a 1930's guest house with the conveniences of a high end resort. Large spaces are found throughout the house where friends and family can gather to share rest and recreation. The house has the original kitchen sink and all the original light fixtures. Updating was carefully done to restore the traditional feeling. It is our hope that our guests will find the peace and joy you have earned throughout your working weeks. Extremely clean standards are expected from our maintenance staff.
