About Dean Westlund
I am Dean Westlund and my Wife is Rory. We live in Lockport, IL. I have been going up to Paw Paw Lake my entire life and my Father Milt was Born just a few miles away in 12 Corners just west of Coloma on Red Arrow Hwy. I am a Sales Engineer selling industrial and commercial HVAC equipment in the Chicago area. We have recently relocated to Michigan so we live on site next door.
Dean Westlund purchased this Cottage in 1976
Why Dean Westlund chose Paw Paw Lake
My father Milt bought this property over 40 years ago when it was just two shack cottages with grass up to your knees. My father and I have spent 45 years rebuilding 'The Westlund Ponderosa' from the ground up to what it is today. We built two additions to 5446 while we rented what we call 'The Stealth Cottage' today. About 25 years ago I took over the 'Stealth' and rebuilt it room by room during the winters. The largest project was gutting the Living room, Kitchen, & Screen Porch and building the Great Room, Kitchen, & Loft we have today. I also converted a one car garage into a Master Bedroom and Bath. We then converted the front Utility room into a bar. My friend Todd and I built a Deck and Patio about 10 years ago. Several years ago we completely rebuilt the Lakefront adding a permanant pier, Large bolder seawall and the bar at the lake. This property has been a labor of love for my father and I. Unfortunately we lost my father several years ago at the ripe old age of 88. My mother passed away in 2017 so we are renting the Stealth Cottage to be able to keep it in the family. I have taken ownership of it now and am working on catching up with some work on the property. So its a win win in my opinion. I hope to meet new renters who may become friends and come back for years to come and you get to enjoy what is probably the most fun property in all the area!! This property is becoming rare on Paw Paw Lake as the old cottages are being torn down and replaced with giant over $1,000,000 fancy new lake houses but ours is old but rehabbed and rebuilt with 100 year old touches. Think of the TV show Restored.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have the rare combination of land and Paw Paw Lake. Most of the lake residents have small lots without much land. By being just across the road from the lake but with 115 feet on it we were able to aquire 2 + acres of land. So you have lots of room for your family and friends. No worries about parking or storing your boat trailer. All in a historic cottage with all the anemities of a modern house. We have hosted weddings, receptions, pizza partys, graduations, birthday partys, girls & guys weekends out, winery tour weekend, bike tour weekends, and golf weekends,and other events for up to 30 people. We rent for three day minimum stays in the summer and weekends in the spring, fall, and winter. You will not be disapointed.
