About Laurelynne Harris
My husband and I purchased this property in 1975 and then spent many years gathering ideas before we built. We felt the grand-kids should focus on outdoor and creative activities while at the Lello House and therefore made a conscious decision against having a television. The decor and amenities were designed for our taste and comfort. Unfortunately retirement incomes to not allow for ever increasing property taxes which make it necessary for us to rent a portion of every year. Otherwise we would be there ourselves!

Why Laurelynne Harris chose Cross Village
The view! The trillium, morels and wild flowers in the spring; the beach in the summer; the beautiful fall color; the surprising enchantment of winter. Cross Village has a wonderful neighborly small village culture. Did I mention the view?
