We have been summer residents of Empire since 1988. It really is 'The Most Beautiful Place in America.' We love the town, the beach, the National Lakeshore. Empire Rose is a house we have admired for many years; we just purchased it in 2011. We are thrilled to own it and be able to offer it for others to enjoy.
Empire Rose is in an ideal location: easy walk to the beach (five minutes), groceries (one minute), restaurants, bank (with ATM), ice cream store, quirky shops, library, National Lakeshore visitor's center.
