The property is owned by five families covering a wide range of ages and professions. Julia, the property representative, is a psychiatrist with three grown children, living near Washington DC. All of us are devout conservationists, hikers and canoers, lovers of movies, music, and theater, and corny activities like miniature golf, board and card games. Our house, built by our grandfather in 1911, is blessed with a beautiful setting, direct access to a lakefront with canoes and swimming dock. Inside guests find many comfortable rooms, a modern kitchen, and a great sitting area with a piano, books, games, records, and art supplies. We hope our guests will feel how the house brings people closer through sharing indoor and outdoor activities at every level of ability.
