Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I am an interior designer and my husband is a retired police officer. We both enjoy the outdoors and nature which is why we purchased the property. We also like to hunt, fish, hike, ski, garden, cook, entertain, and spend time with our friends and family. We couldn't think of a better place to do all of the above.

Why the Owner Chose Vandalia, MI, USA:
This property has so much to offer and we knew we just wouldn't find anything else like it. It truly is one of a kind. Everybody that comes out here is just blown away. It's been a lot of hard work, but well worth it. We love it here!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is truly unique because it has a little bit of everything. There is a lake, a pond, a moving stream, hills, woods, open areas, and it's far enough off the main road to give you that secluded feeling. Yet there are many places that provide all the modern conveniences only minutes away. Being next to T. K. Lawless Park is a huge plus with everything they have to offer and just knowing that the property won't be developed gives us a sense of security and reassures our privacy.
