Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: After looking for several years to find the right lot to build our vacation and future retirement home, we found the perfect lot and lake. With 5 children and 13 grandchildren, we knew the home had to have plenty of elbow room. We designed the plans and our two level home was completed in 2007.

Why the Owner Chose Hale, MI, USA:
Short drive only 2 1/2 hours north of metro Detroit Minutes away from Ausable river, short drive to Tawas, West Branch, Oscodoa.Review our guest book from previous guest under overview below.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We find that during the week it is very peaceful and the lake is not very busy at all. Our guest suite of our home remains cool during the hot summer months and the fireplace keeps the guest suite nice and warm when needed
