Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We are a family that has enjoyed entertaining in our home with family and friends. We hope to share that with you and make many more friends.

Why the Owner Chose Manitowish Waters, WI, USA:
As a child my husband grew up visiting friends in the 'Northwoods' with his family. We soon started coming up together and looking for a second home to vacation in. We have started a family and raised them in the same tradition of vacationing in the 'Northwoods'

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We treat you more like a guest in our home than a renter. We have entertained a lot so we know what it takes to stock a house for fun. We try not to overlook anything and will make your stay enjoyable
