Happily married for 21 years, mother of four: ages 12, 9, 6, 5 and two fur kids Kona (rescued Mountain Feist) and Luna (rescued Black Lab).

We bought this lake house so we can spend more time together in my most favorite place. On the lake.

We hope that you can come and spend time together with your tribe at this very special place​ because there is just something magical about the days spent on the lake. Come find out.

Remember your why...
