2016 Update - Terrapin Station

Well, here it is 2016.  Another summer is coming to an end.  The summer on Turtle Lake has been spectacular.

The Pileated Woodpeckers had 3 babies, all males.  It has been awesome to watch Dad get suet and take it to them and share with each one.  The hummers provide endless entertainment with their antics.  There is a beaver on the lake; the eagles visit almost everyday.  The highest electric bill all summer has been $77.00

It is with much sadness that it is time for me to start a new journey in my life and sell this little slice of heaven.  My love and soulmate spent 20 months battling that terrible, horrific disease of pancreatic cancer.  Jack succumbed and was able to exit his debilitated body May of 2015.  I've never met a more courageous man.  His original diagnosis was 3 weeks to 3 months after diagnosis and he fought valiantly for 20 months.  Since Terrapin Station was our dream home and dream life, it just doesn't seem right to continue to stay here.  So, I have decided to move back to Grand Rapids MI and have purchased a condo Downtown.  I said I would never move again...what is that lesson about "never saying never"???

I would love for our home to go to the type of person who values sustainability, the beauty and solitude of nature while having all the creature comforts.
