Hosted by BeckyAsk a question
Both Jim and I grew up in the Chicago area and live in the City now. My husband Jim has been traveling to the North Shore since he was boy and has great memories of his family vacations there. My first trip to the North Shore was just after we were married 15 years ago. I fell in love with area immediately and never wanted our vacations to come to an end.
Why Becky chose Cook County
We have been looking for the perfect house and piece of property ever since our first trip up together. Finally our dream came true this past year. Growing up in, and living in Chicago now, we love the fact, that when at Twin Cedars we can't see our neighbors. That was very important to us. We try to get to Twin Cedars every chance we get but in the mean time want to share this beautiful piece of the North Shore with you.
What makes this House unique
I remember vividly my first glimpse of Lake Superior right from the driveway. As I walked down the gentle sloping path into the yard for the first time, I saw a cute little footbridge crossing over a seasonal creek. Not only did I have a beautiful, walkable, ledge rock shore stretching out in front of me but a babbling brook as well. As I strolled up the small creek bed lined with stones and wild roses I realized we had a small Springtime waterfall located just off the deck. This is one of my husbands favorite things to enjoy while grilling. Inside the house is all 'Knotty pine' that gives you that true 'Up North' feeling. This is a 1960's custom built house with lots of fun interesting features. With the updated track lighting you can either do some fine needle work and reading or have a cozy family movie night. Both the Family room and A-Frame have fantastic views of the lake. Just off the A-Fame are a few bird feeders rigged to attract a variety of species and with windows all around being from floor to ceiling the bird watching can be exceptional. It sometimes feels like you are in your own tree house. The Family room has a huge picture window that looks out over the deck and Lake Superior. You can see all the way to the Horizon here.
