Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband and I are delighted to share our lake house with you! We know you will love it as much as we do. I have always loved traveling, learning about different cultures, and meeting new people. I have lived in four different countries and four states and still treasure my friendships from each of these places. My very favorite spot in the world is this lake house in Sawyer, Michigan and I love to share it with others. I now split my time between Chicago where I practice law and Sawyer, where I simply relax! My husband and I are available to assist you in any way. We hope to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible!

Why the Owner Chose Sawyer, MI, USA:
While just an hour and a half from Chicago, this place couldn't feel any further away. We chose this property because we can really get away from everything, but still are close to great restaurants, breweries, shops, art galleries, distilleries, and amazing hiking, biking, and cross-country ski trails.
