Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Mel is a retired Mason contractor and has worn his body right out lifting bricks and block for some 50 plus years. Ellen is a licensed general contractor & loves designing & building cabins. We are empty nesters and have served 4 missions for our church. Nauvoo in 2005 - 2007, Martin's Cove 2009, 6th Crossing of the Sweetwater in 2010 and Deseret Land & Livestock in 2011. We sold our home before we went to Nauvoo and Built a new home when we returned. When we were called to serve at the Handcart sites of Wyoming for 6 months we decided to rent our new home out for family reunions while we were away. We called it 'The Gathering Place' (another cabin, next door that we rent out). When a spec cabin sold in 2012 we decided to build this cabin with nightly rentals in mind. We had listened to our guests at 'The Gathering Place' and decided to add more bathrooms as suggested. 10 might be just a little over the top.

Why the Owner Chose Sweetwater (Garden City, UT, USA):
When we were serving in Nauvoo, we learned to love The Early Saints. Ellen learned that Heber C Kimball baptized her G. G. G. Grandpa in England. We served in his home in Nauvoo. When we came home we built on a piece of property that once belonged to Heber C and his family. It just seemed fitting to call our cabin 'The Heber C.'

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The wrap-around porch is shady in the afternoon and protected from the prevailing N.N.W. winds. We love to relax on the deck and enjoy the view of the lake and the agricultural lands below. When you design & build a home with your own blood, sweat & tears you have a greater appreciation for all the details and all that went into it.
