Owner info

Year Purchased: 1976

About the owner: I grew up on this property and just love the area. It's the best lake in the world and the best place for a family vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Empire, MI, USA:
My parents vacationed here when I was young, and I fell in love with the lake and the area. Now my daughter Amy is managing the rentals. When you want to enjoy your family vacation with the ones you love....this is the place to visit.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world, and I have looked! Yet it is surrounded by a simplicity characterized by small towns that grow large only in the summer.
