About Patti Garvin

My husband Honi and I are now retired. He was a pilot for 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and then 21 years with United Airlines. I was once a software engineer, working at computer companies. We have 4 children (all boys) who enjoyed summers at this home. We live in Monument, Colorado.

Patti Garvin purchased this house in 1998

Why Patti Garvin chose Northern Michigan

My great grandfather was a surfman and light house keeper at the Point Betsie lighthouse from 1895-1909. My grandmother was born in Frankfort (nearby town) and my mother was born there as well. I have relatives all over the area and spent my summers there as a child. Each year my family attends reunions in Frankfort. In 1998 we bought this house to have a place for my extended family to be together to enjoy our reunions.

Wonderful location and beautiful home! Steps away from Bestie River, Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Frankfort - we can't wait to come back.
