About The Crawfords
We purchased Hilltop located on a 100 ft. wide lot next to several wooded lots and our original fishing hideaway where families of deer, a pair of eagles and all kinds of furry and feathered wild life make their homes on the 'Rivered Hills of Hersey.'
Why The Crawfords chose Hersey
EVERYTHING is here that we love - privacy, beauty, incredible changing seasons, fishing, wildlife, a great hunting retreat during season. We enjoy the beautiful sunsets, view of the river, always changing! The fishing is great from the 20' dock and children have lots of fun in the shallow water on the 10' dock, catching crayfish or clams or picking up 'special rocks.' You can relax on the river, shaded by maple and various types of trees, hang a hammock near the picnic table on the river bank, tube down the river to either one of the docks, have a bonfire at night in the fire pit, on the river bank or the fire pit in the back yard, enjoying the stars and our lovely Michigan cold night air, as you watch the moon cause golden ripples in the river.
What makes this house unique
Downtime - memories forever - retreat for sweethearts - away from it all. You will never forget and often return.
