Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a family of 6 with 2 dogs. Grew up spending summers on Strawberry Lake and loved it so much we bought a place of our own.

Why the Owner Chose Whitmore Lake, MI, USA:
This property is beautiful being one of only 2 lots with double frontage on Bobwhite Beach. Bobwhite Beach is on the East side of the lake which is the best for the sunset views. It is a great location because it is in close proximity to our home. Being between Ann Arbor and Brighton, we love to attend the Ann Arbor Art fair each year as well as the many local festivals. We love being on the chain of lakes to take a 3-4 hour boat tour up river, or heading over to Zukey Lake Tavern for dinner by boat. Great sandy bottom for swimming. Wonderful fishing right off the end of the dock!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Staying in this quaint log cabin reminds us of the peaceful slow pace, and lazy summer days that people have enjoyed for the past 80 years. Sitting around he big stone fireplace, relaxing on the porch and playing games at the table are some of our favorite memory spots.
