Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We both grew up downstate but Lake City has always been our vacation destination until 2006 when we moved up here. Wayne retired from GM after 30 years and now works full time at a Young Life camp as a landscape supervisor. I am a dental hygienist currently only subbing and a full time Nana. We both enjoy the outdoors: biking, boating, walking, gardening, golfing and traveling to beach destinations.

Why the Owner Chose Lake City, MI, USA:
Wayne's grandparents and parents both retired in Lake City. We brought our children up in the summer every weekend to enjoy the beach, boating , volleyball and all the water sports. Wayne in his youth camped with his family all over the state of Michigan but they always wanted to come back to Lake City because of the large sandy beach and warm water. We purchased this home from Wayne's parents and have been remodeling it over the years. We have a quaint, quiet town which is only 3 walking blocks away. It is the best location on the lake. Walking distance to the county park and the city center ( restaurants and ice cream shop noted for the largest ice cream cones in the north.)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beautiful, tranquil views of the Lake from every room. Bedrooms that will accommodate 10 people .Location, location, location!
