Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Our family has loved Northern Michigan for many years. It is where my Irish parents taught us to be part of the outdoors. We learned to water ski on the lakes of Michigan, as kids, as well as snow ski as adults. We learned to quiet the mind here in Northern Michigan and respect the beauty. We were taught the art of conversation around crackling fires, screened in porches and warm wooden docks. Thank you parents.

Why Central Lake, MI, USA:
The private lake setting, the white birches and the short distance drive to the big Lake Michigan. The quaint 1920's cottage reminds us of where we came from and to enjoy the simple things in life like sunrises, listening to the sound of rain on the back porch, hearing laughter of the lake while sitting around a fire. There are so many things to do in the area or just sit back in the adirondack chair and enjoy the veiw.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Private beach setting, availability of Grocery Store/Market, beautiful restaurants, or simple dining, a beachy town, cute cinema, water parks, golf, tennis. Brownwood Acres at Torch Lake let's you step back in history, from penny candies to flea market to the history of the area.
