Owner info

About the owner: A (helpful) brother, (prodigal) son, (considerate) roommate, (savvy) business partner, (always improving) golfer and (versatile) management consultant. I spend a lot of time traveling for work and play. I spend a few weeks a year out west in the mountains and a few more exploring (scuba) dive sites around the world. I've become the type of person that thrives on spontaneity and never passes on the chance to create a memorable story. You want to hike the Great Wall next week? GREAT, let's do it! I pride myself on courtesy and consideration and make every effort to keep those around me comfortable (when dining with a big group, I'm the guy that pays attention to seating arrangement, ensuring a good flow of conversation, not leaving anyone out.)

Why the Owner Chose Empire, MI, USA:
The Neighborhood Out in the wilderness - on a clear night you can see all trillion stars. Oh, and it's very, very quiet.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
FROM TRAVERSE CITY: - The approximate commuting time from Traverse City depends purely on traffic but generally takes between 18 and 25 minutes. - The home is situated across the street from a century old barn in a large rye field. - We've added a fire pit, grill and lounge chairs to aid in your relaxing holiday.
