My husband Shel and I have lived on Lake Leelanau for 20 years. We moved here from Orchard Lake Michigan. Shel is a retired pharmacist and I had been in business many years. For the last 20 years I have been a Top Producing Realtor with Coldwell Banker specializing only in Leelanau County. Since we were married 40 years ago our dream was to live on Lake Leelanau which is a 25 mile long lake with crystal clear water. We only wish we could have moved here sooner. The wonderful people, the glorious scenery that changes every day with the reflection of sun, water and skies, the cultural activities, fabulous restaurants, incredible farms, cherry..grape..apple..peach..plum..berry farms are everywhere. These a just a few of the reasons we moved here including the wonderful water surrounding
us. We have four children 2 boys and 2 girls. Love our 3 grandsons and 2 grand daughters. Of course, life would not be complete without our adorable Duncan McDuff, our special West Highland White Terrier.
I bought Freshwater to share my Leelanau Dream with as many families that have never been to this magnificent land. I have traveled to 50 countries on 6 continents and have not found any other place that can match Leelanau County. Believe me I looked everywhere and this really is a paradise. Remember the movie FIELD OF DREAMS? One of the baseball ghosts
asks Is this Heaven? And the farmer says No, this is Iowa. Well this property, house and lake will feel like heaven to you and your family. Peace, quiet and lots of activities when you want it. I know you will be delighted to be here.
