Our family of 5 is from Grand Rapids, MI. We both grew up in northern Michigan and wanted our children to be able to experience the same. We spent our fall and winter of 2016 renovating this charming cottage ourselves. We had so much fun and made great family memories along the way. It was a year they will never forget!
