Scott & Kim Lepine: 298 Bramblewood Dr.
Kim & scott have sucessfully embraced both of their families traditions to create a holiday home that family and friends enjoy during this wonderful season. The Lepine home has a massive real Christmas tree with thousands of lights and blown glass ornaments. The house is decked with heirloom Swedish accents and a tremendous Santa collection.

Melvin and Susie Wilcox: 2320 E Lake Mitchell Dr.
Smell the sweet aroma of a bonfire and warm yourself in the glow emanating from it. You have arrived at the sweet little cottage home of the talented Susie. Growing up Susie used to visit this 1926 cottage, owned by her aunt and uncle. Her dream was to live here one day. In 2008 that wish came true. It may be small, but it is packed with lakeside charm and homemade quality quilts and crafts, many of which are for sale.
Marsha Anderson: 4578 Benson Rd.
The Anderson home is the picture perfect chalet that welcomes guest with a huge wrap around deck. Inside the large windows and high vaulted ceilings flood the house with natural light creating an open and spacious feel. A loft adds more living space and gives a birds-eye view to the family room and the outdoors. Traditional furnishings and decor give a comfortable, homey style. A crowning jewel to this home is the beautiful three season room that overlooks a peaceful, park-like back yard. Leave your worries behind!
Bill & Nancy Wagner: 445 Torrey Rd.
This spacious modern home was custom built in 2002 for the current owners. It is a home designed for entertaining. A large well equipped kitchen leads to a unique dining area. The floor to celing stone firplace is a welcome spot for groups to cluster as they visit and party. In warm weather, the lake side patio and deck beckon people outside to enjoy the simply marvelous views of Lake Mitchell. In fact, every room of this home takes advantage of the beautiful natural setting in which it sits.
