About Robert VanValkenburg
I grew up in Clare Michigan, 15 miles from the cottage. I went to school in Clare, all twelve years. I attended Ferris State, graduated from there and then attended Lawrence tech in Southfield Mi. Ended up working and living around the Detroit metro area as well as in Jackson Mi. I ended up living and working in Midland Mi. for 35 years with a two year job on the north slope of Alaska. I am currently starting a new business which takes up the majority of my time.
Robert VanValkenburg purchased this Cottage in 2002
Why Robert VanValkenburg chose Harrison
Between High School and College I was a State Park Ranger at Wilson State Park in Harrison Mi. I always had a soft spot in my heart for this area. I purchased 10 acres of wooded land near Harrison some years after leaving the area. I used it for mainly recreation. One day when taking the scenic ride home around the lake we saw a for sale sign and fell in love with the cottage. It was just what I had always wanted in a cottage. We closed on the property 17 days later just in time for the fourth of July 2002 and have enjoyed it ever since.
What makes this Cottage unique
We chose this property for the lake of course and the whole neighborhood. It is fun all summer long. On holidays it is very busy on Saturday and sunday. The lake is alive with boats, pontoons and tubers. But during the week the lake calms down and you pretty much have it to yourself. It has curfews on speed boating so the fishermen can use the lake in the morning and evening. Pontoon parade starts around 7:00 pm. It is great for swimming, boating, jet skiing, and just hanging out at the beach. We have a nice dock with a patio section near our boat lift. we do not furnish a boat but you can use the lift if you like.
