We met and fell in love while students at MTU back in the late 1970's. Jerry is from Lower Michigan, Nancy is from Ironwood. The natural beauty and serenity of the Keweenaw area captured our hearts during those early years. Several years later we returned with our young family for a week long stay in Eagle River. The cottage we rented was a bit of a dive, but we all had an absolutely wonderful time. We started dreaming of having a place a place of our own on Lake Superior. The 10 year plan for our cottage became the five year plan when the cottage was completed in 2006. We designed it as our Dream Home ... to be comfortable, cozy and easy to care for.
Why Jerry and Nancy chose this location:
We chose this property because of its location, beautiful setting and ease of building. We love that we can keep it open year round when we choose to. We love the shared beach area and our wonderful neighbors (who aren't too close!) We love sitting on the beach watching the waves change throughout the day and watching the sun set in the evening. We love being within minutes of everything the Keweenaw has to offer. The area has dug its hooks deeply into our souls. When we are away, we are constantly dreaming of our return.
What makes this house unique:
The beach! The view! The smell of fresh air and cedar trees! Our sandy swimming area! Deer and fox, woodpeckers, loons and eagles! Freighters, fishing boats and sailboats! Kayaks and canoes! Falling asleep to the sound of the waves and catching the occasional northern light show.
