Ron is a native 'Yooper' with roots in the Gladstone area. Although he moved away more than two decades ago he and the family make the trek from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to visit several times per year. The U.P. is a perfect place to unwind and take a break from Ron's hectic work schedule which has him traveling all over the world through most of the year. Ron and Katrina have a total of 4 kids who love to spend time in Gladstone as the location is perfect for kids. It is also a very friendly town where you will immediately feel welcome as you explore all that the area has to offer. In their spare time Ron and Katrina love to travel to exotic locations. Ron is a musician and guitar collector while Katrina enjoys puzzles and volunteer work.
Ron purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Ron chose Gladstone
Ron's mother and grandparents are from Gladstone so he had the benefit of spending a lot of time here as a child. It's a great place to just hang out and enjoy the friendly local people and small town charm. The lifestyle here is very relaxed and the scenery in the area is truly beautiful. The sunsets over the lake are spectacular and you can occasionally even see the Northern Lights! It is the perfect place for a 'Getaway"!
What makes this Cottage unique
The location is great because Van Cleve Park and Little Bay de Noc (Lake Michigan) are just across the street. The park is beautiful and it offers everything from a public beach (where the water is actually quite warm due to the shallow bay) to a kids playland, to a new public fishing dock. Little Bay de Noc is known as one of the best Walleye fishing areas in the country and there are local charters available. In the winter you can enjoy the Gladstone Ski Hill which also offers tubing, and snowmobiles are allowed on city streets to allow easy access to the extensive trail system. Gladstone is a small town with great local restaurants and a charming downtown with local shops. If you visit in the summer you will also appreciate air conditioning which is uncommon in Upper Michigan.
