Property description

Log home built in 1992. The house on 1.12 acres of wooded property and is all on one floor. The bedrooms are located in 3 'wings' around the living/dining and kitchen areas. This allows for 'together' time while also providing the ability to have some private or quiet time as needed. There's a large stone wood-burning fireplace in the large room and a large back deck with charcoal-burning grill available. The hot tub access is from the deck.
N.B. The hot tub is shut down during the winter.
****NOTE: There is a bank transaction fee for any amount charged (about 3% of the amount charged). I will accept payment by check directly to me if you choose to avoid this additional charge.

Owner info

About the owner: I built the house in 1992 when we got tired of looking for a place near Interlochen Arts Academy/Camp that my nieces attended. I'm an alum myself and attend the Adult Choir Camp each year. The next generation of campers are still too young to attend!

Why the Owner Chose Interlochen, MI, USA:
The house's lay-out affords a great combination of together-ness area and private bedroom spaces. There can be meals, games or TV going on in the big room, and yet a private nap/work/discussion happening in private...and unless it's summer with the windows open, that privacy remains.
