Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: I have been coming up to Sugar Springs since my parents purchased the property in 1976. I road through the lake in a 4 wheel jeep before it was filled with water. I used to own a remodeling business and now my hobby is to continually improve the property for my family and our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Gladwin, MI, USA:
I have spent 30 years improving the cottage to make your stay relaxing and memorable. Has all the amenities of a house but has the feel of a cottage with lots of natural wood and fishing and boating decor.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Almost every room has a view of the water. The gardens have been a long term on going love affair. Sitting on the garden swing or hammock totally relaxes me. Seeing the sunrise from the master bedroom always puts me in the right state of mind to start the day.
