Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: For over twenty years my wife ran the health food store in Gaylord while I ran the bookstore. Could you even imagine a more satisfying occupation than being a bookseller. Well now we are both into our second careers; day caring our 2 grandchildren. They are a lot of work and we are exhausted but we get lots of hugs and kisses.

Why the Owner Chose Michaywe (Gaylord, MI, USA):
We love this place so much. I have to pinch myself when I'm sitting with my feet up and a book in my lap looking out over Opal Lake. We are happy to share our home with you at least until we aren't needed for our day jobs.
