Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: We've spent our summers here every year since we bought it. My three boys have spent countless hours on the lake and enjoying some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. We've rented the place occasionally through the years to several returning visitors. With the kids grown and busy with life we've decided to rent more and expand our guest list. We love the place and have made steady improvements over the years to make it a warm and inviting home for our friends, family, and visitors. We hope you take the opportunity to enjoy our home as we have for many years.
Why the Owner Chose Honor, MI, USA:
The lake offers great water sports and swimming. With many large windows the house feels connected to the lake and you're never far from a beautiful view. The area was voted by Good Morning America as the most beautiful place in the country and with the many secret beaches and hikes you can access all the areas beauty.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house and property are organized for maximizing exposure to the lake. The house sits on a hill that slopes down to the water. With this placement you get fantastic views. There is a beautiful staircase with fieldstone borders running down to the lake. Solar lights straddle the staircase and provide light for night time commuting between the house and lake. The property is spotted with different seating areas that offer unique vantages of the lake. The dining room provides great views while family and friends enjoy time together eating and talking. The patio off of the lakeside of the house offers adirondack chairs for enjoying morning coffee or a relaxing break from the day. The boathouse has chairs, a table, and a fire pit while offering great views of the water and sunsets. The dock has a platform on the water with 4 dock pieces placed sideways to offer a large area for sunbathing and sitting. Breezes from the lake and great tree coverage keep the house cool and fresh smelling. Take advantage of the large windows.
