Exquisite tree of life tapestry is centerpiece of entry

Five Big Canoe homeowners are generously opening their homes to tour. Each home is unique with architectural features and decorating that will delight the guests. The two-story home set on 1+ acre on the ridge above Lake Petit is exquisitely decorated and includes an extensive art collection. The whimsical lakefront log home surrounded by remarkable landscaping is decorated with family antiques and repurposed collectibles.

Authentic old world joinery and chinking make this cabin set in lovingly tended gardens a must see

One of the three Wildcat homes on tour reflects the owners’ love of entertaining and cooking and features an indoor salt water pool and spa. The next home in Wildcat overlooks Dawson forest and features custom cabinets, shelving, and architectural elements that reflect the owners’ love of family and casual entertaining with a view. The largest home on tour features several comfortable living areas decorated with furniture and art acquired during the owners’ European travels, private suites for each of their adult children, a bunk room for the grandkids, a swimming pool and bocce court overlooking Dawson Forest, outdoor fireplace and entertaining areas, and a butterfly garden.
