About Laurie Cooney, Owner
We are *Laurie(Susmark) & Jo Cooney. *My family has owned Wilderness Watch since 1951, and after my mother died, I bought out my four siblings. My wonderful husband Jo came along shortly thereafter and together, we have worked to maintain and improve the property, while caring for the woods and its creatures. (Recently, we celebrated 25 years of personal ownership.) I spend five months of the year in managing the rental. During the off-season, I take care of marketing and our rental home, along with caring for our two dogs, King Arthur and Lobo. We have one daughter, 28, who joins us at the cabin every summer, with her dog, (Lobo's sibling) Duncan. Before doing this, I was working for a Nursing Home and did Home Child Care. I love animals, kids, helping seniors and photography. I am on-site at Wilderness Watch, (we own 2 houses on 2 acres), should anything come up that should require my assistance.

Laurie Cooney, Owner purchased this mobile home in 1951
Why Laurie Cooney, Owner chose Watersmeet
My parents first bought the property after my father traveled up for many years hunting and logging. Then they and my Grandparents purchased a second home to put on the property for my Grandparents to be snow-birds from Florida and they vacationed in Upper Michigan for many years. As a child, we spent every summer, from school out, to school back in session, at the cabin. I have spent my whole life exploring the Cisco Chain. Now that my parents and grandparents are all gone, we turned the larger three bedroom home into a rental, and kept the smaller one bedroom home, (with a recent addition, now a 3 bedroom also) for us to live in, while managing and maintaining the rental. Looking towards the future, my daughter looks forward to carrying on the family traditions we started so long ago. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and take care of Mother Earth!
What makes this mobile home unique
Located at the middle of the Cisco Chain of 15 lakes, Wilderness Watch is on a medium sized lake, that has an average depth of forty to sixty feet. The spring fed lakes are crystal clear all the way through August, before the 'bloom' comes on for the winter. Excellent fishing and swimming, right from the dock! Having 'grown up' on the Cisco Chain, I can offer many insights into the sights and activities of the Chain, not to mention great fishing holes! I also offer the only Guided Pontoon Tours of the Cisco Chain, (where you can view the fourteen Great Bald Eagle nests) and I offer a discount to my renters. When you arrive, I have a packet of information, detailing all the things to see and do within a two hour radius of the home. I can offer tips on places to eat, things to see and the must-see waterfalls in the area to hike. There is a gambling Casino in Watersmeet. Lake Superior is also just a short drive away, offering a wonderful day trip location, to rock-hound or just marvel at its magnitude and beauty. No matter what your interests are, Wilderness Watch is at the heart of all the best the Western U.P., North-woods has to offer! Come let us show you what we've known for years... It's all PURE MICHIGAN!!
