This property is owned by Bruce & Cheryl Meyer. Cheryl inherited the property from her parents. It holds many family memories for us and our children and grandchildren. Currently, we live at a distance so we cannot make use of the home as often as we would like. We have chosen to rent it out Spring to Fall each year to help us maintain the property. We feel that it is a place that many others can enjoy and we are happy to have you as our guests.
The home was built by our deceased parents circa 1968-70. Unique style of that era.
In the summer the decks with lake breezes are wonderful to have breakfast coffee, afternoon tea, cold drinks, and to grill meals. The view is lovely to observe beach activity and passing ships. The best is the extensive sugar sand beach to play on and to take long walks beside plus clear cool water for swimming. Children love the water, sand. and play grounds.
