Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I came to Lexington as a newlywed freshly graduated from Western Michigan University with a Masters in Occupational Therapy. We moved to the Lake in 1989 before my youngest could walk and stayed for 14 years full-time!

Why the Owner Chose Lexington, MI, USA:
I fell in love with this property at first sight. It was a disaster, but as my friends all said "it has a lot of potential". I worked at the hospital one day a week while the girls were small and began fixing up the old house and guest house. We lived and worked in the area and in this home for 14 years while the girls were growing up. We rented the guest house to families with young children during the summer so the girls always had playmates!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Beach walking remains my favorite lake house activity. Our beach is very walkable in both directions, I search for sea glass,fossils and rocks! There is no light pollution in this area so the stars are especially bright, star gazing is one of my favorite night-time activities. I love to lie in the hammock, listen to the surf and watch the stars. I often go to the cottage during the full moon, the moon rise over the water is amazing!!! My favorite time of day at the cottage is SUNRISE!!! The gardens at the cottage are nice to enjoy, they bloom all summer long!
