About Laurie Graham
Laurie and David met and were married around the lakes in Minneapolis, and moved to Michigan after David finished grad school in New York. Moving to Michigan was like a homecoming for David who went to University of Michigan for undergrad. Laurie quickly adjusted to the Michigan lifestyle. The four kids -- ages 13 to 21 -- love the outdoor activities Michigan offers each season.
Laurie Graham purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Laurie Graham chose Walloon Lake
We have enjoyed year-round Up North activities for our entire time raising our four children in Michigan -- boating, skiing/snowboarding, golfing, snow mobiling. We've always been attracted to the lakes with Carribean blue water. Walloon was a perfect match for us in all regards. When you add in its close proximity to Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Boyne City, who could ask for anything more?
What makes this cottage unique
After driving just over a mile through a 'tunnel of trees' along side the West Arm of Walloon, you complete the journey going up a sloping hill. Before even getting out of the car in the circular driveway, you are taken away by the view of the lake, with its turquoise water, and thick green shoreline on the opposite side.
We immediately knew the upper deck and shoreside deck were going to make great spaces for enjoying the views and sharing time with family and friends, but it was the mid-deck, built around a massive Maple tree, that captured the most attention.
Once we saw the interior of the house, with its great views from every room and extensive knotty pine woodwork, we knew this was the place for us.
