Community Involvement

I enjoy being very active in the delightful communities of Petoskey and Harbor Springs.  I have sat on the Northern Michigan Hospital Endowment Committee and the Emmet County Zoning Committee.  Currently I head the Eucharistic Ministery to Northern Michigan Hospitals from Holy Childhood Parish, Harbor Springs.  Previously, my husband and I represented the United States from 1992-1997 in an international faith organization, traveling worldwide to meet with other couples representing their country.  In my time enjoying this community, I play tennis, love to downhill ski, and enjoy the amenities in Birchwood Farms Golf and Country Club where I has lived the last 20 years.

Walloon Lake Real Estate

Quietly tucked away in the quaint and serene countryside of Northern Michigan, Walloon Lake has almost 30 miles of wooded shoreline, straddles two counties, and features 900 plus mostly Victorian original or newer Victorian or log cottages.  Three "arms" on the lake are distinctive in their waterfront direction for sunrises or sunsets and the quality of the bottom of the lake...the best being hard- packed sand.  The long-standing Walloon Lake Association, with members numbering more than 90% of the cottage owners, gets high marks for their dedication to protecting their "fragile Paradise" and is considered a model lake association in the United States.  The Land Trust Committee of this association has successfully purchased or have had owners donate acres of vacant land behind the cottages...never to be built upon.  The value of a cottage is mostly determined by front feet, presently ranging between $7,000 to $10,000.  These values have held up quite well through the present economy.  Total yearly sales are around 20...no one sells Walloon...short of death or divorce!  I welcome you to e-mail me at patverhelle@triton.net if you want professional, detailed, and accurate help to find your "perfect Paradise" on this lake of lakes by one of the few lake specialists.
