Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Natalie and Bob were high school sweetharts both growing up in Marquette, MI. Bob retired from banking as President and Natalie is a RN and certified massage therapist with a clinic in Marquette. They have extensive contacts in the Marquette area and can help arrange multiple activities.

Why the Owner Chose Big Bay, Powell, MI, USA:
Natalie bought the property with plans to use it as a summer home. The log home is 1,800 sq.ft with all modern amenities including a sauna, two full baths, 3 bedrooms (one with bunk beds). Internet, Bose surround sound both in the home and outdoors on the deck and patio provide the perfect setting to watch the waves roll in off Lake Superior. The home looks due north so you can watch both the sunrise and set!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Having the perfect view of Lake Superior you can marvel at the changes in the lake. One day it can be sky blue, the next slate gray. It can be calm as far as you can see (it's like looking out at the ocean!) and the next day be 10' waves!
