Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: I live in Grand Haven in the woods on the beach and have been coming up to the Fife Lake area for the past 20 years. I spend much of my time up north. My neighbors in GH, who come only in the summer, always wonder why I could possibly be going any where else!
Why the Owner Chose Fife Lake, MI, USA:
My husbands father built his cabin in Fife Lake in the forties. We loved the woods and beautiful lakes in the area and subsequently found our own place on Downs Lake in 1994. The Chalet, also on Downs lake was purchased in 2002. The original cabin, close by, has been renovated and can be rented along with the Chalet.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
The chalet is a peaceful place in the center of nature. Watch and observe closely, you will not be disappointed.
