We purchased this home as a getaway and eventually hope to retire to this small town.
Donna, who runs the rental business, is a journalist and gardener. Dennis works in the building department at the University of Michigan. Steven and Ellie were teenagers when we purchased the place and are now adults living in Michigan.
We loved the setup of this townhouse, with the upstairs 2 BR and bath being separate for teens or extended family.
The area offers the beauty of northern Michigan forests, lakes, rivers and trails while still being close to all of the resort and town amenities.
The setup of the condo inside and out is perfect for families and others. We also have one of the only townhouses with a side picture window that looks out into the forest.
The wooded setting is peaceful, but still close to the resort center. The summer pool is steps away and other pools are available year round. The number of lakes and rivers in the area is great!
