We are both from Jackson and really like it here. We love our farm and the cottage. We live on the farm in a separate home and wish to share our beautiful lake, and cottage. We have been working hard to renovate our cottage by painting, adding moldings, new appliances, new flooring, new furnishings and just making it light and airy.
