About the owner: Rebecca and her husband, Bill, were both raised in New Buffalo. They met when they were both in the sixth grade talent show but wonder--since they were in the same class starting in kindergarten--why it took them so long! After college, both moved away from the area but, after reconnecting, getting married, and birthing two baby girls, they were quick to return "home" in order to give their girls the same advantages they had growing up. It is true--every member of the Conway family knows he or she is fortunate to live in a one-stoplight town on a big lake with small town advantages and big city opportunities. The family resides just a few houses down from Rebecca's family home and enjoys sharing the Storybook Cottage with others.
