Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We love the outdoors and love to be in it. We fell in love with the drybed Cedar forest on this property and then viewed the perfect natural place to build the log home. With the assistance of a local builder and dear friends we spent years of weekends finishing the house for occupancy with plans to move North. Much to our delight we had a grandson join the family then another, then another and we just can't leave the delightful little ones yet in Southern MI. MI is the state we both grew up and and after traveling to what we thought were our dream states realized we have the best right here. Someday ahead we hope to enjoy the Log Home fulltime but for now are willing to share our dream.

Why the Owner Chose Boyne Falls, MI, USA:
We built it because of the many outdoor activities in this area. We love the snow, snow ski, snowshoe, hike and snowmobil, and the same love in the Summer with so many lakes and outdoor activities or just a walk in the great fresh air.The view from the front porch with total Fall color change or the morning sunrise with a cup of coffee and evening happy hour.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have many lovely neighbors that live there yearround and others that are weekenders like us. With all of us having acreage and busy lifestyles we enjoy our privacy in a friendly manner. Sitting in what I call our fairy forrest I love the tranquility of listening to and watching the rushing river on a hot day. We snowshoe in the woods on the most blistering winter days totally protected from the winds. Lake Louise is minutes away in the Summer with a wonderful park, public access and beach area that is usually not crowded. Lake Charlevoix is 5 minutes away. Private side deck for sunbathing. Plenty of room to throw a ball. The mushroom hunting is great. Boyne City has street music & events ever Friday during the Summer months. We do share a portion of the Cedar Forrest with a neighbor and request consideration of their privacy in their posted region. The large bridge across the river is theirs and private. Thank you!
