Find your dream home

As a longtime resident of the Eastern U.P., it would be my privilege to use my acquired knowledge of the area to help residents and visitors become better informed about the real estate marketplace. Clients will find that my enthusiasm and appreciation of this region, and willingness to listen to their needs, provide the foundation for them to realize their property endeavors.

It would be my distinct pleasure, introducing newcomers to the many people and locations that Yoopers hold dear, when it comes to talking about a place we are proud to call “Home”.

Welcome to Les Cheneaux

The Les Cheneaux Islands area consists of an archipelago of 36 islands. The two mainland harbor towns of Hessel & Cedarville offer marinas and public docking for residents and visitors making trips to summer homes on inhabited islands. This area is beloved for its many channels and protected bays, which are ideal for boating, fishing, sailing, & kayaking.

Attractions on the mainland include all of the quintessential U.P. summer-town amenities: waterfront dining, gift shops, golfing, and a lengthy festival that culminates with the Antique Wooden Boat Show in Hessel, which is held annually on the second weekend of August.

There has never been a better time to escape the city and find your retreat in the crystal-clear waters, and idyllic wilderness setting of Les Cheneaux. Families have established home here that have been enjoyed by multiple generations, and the traditions and customs they’ve forged in this community, are ones that remain the most-anticipated part of every Summer season.
