About the owner: I grew up in Two Rivers and my husband, Chris grew up in Manitowoc. I am an educator who spent most of my teaching career at the University. Chris is a college administrator. We have 4 young adult children. We enjoy camping, reading, movies, cycling, and other outdoor activities.
Why the Owner Chose Two Rivers, WI, USA:
This land has been in my family since 1946 when my grandfather purchased the original farmland upon which this cottage is located. My parents purchased the land from my grandfather in 1977 and in 1985, they built this cottage home. In 2014, we purchased the property. We share this beautiful location and cottage with those who also appreciate the wooded location and all that Two Rivers and Manitowoc County has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage sits on a beautifully wooded property that is outside of the Two Rivers city limits, yet it is less than 2 miles into town. Enjoy this quiet, relaxing atmosphere that is also home to a family of Great Blue Heron that nest on this property each year.
