I rent a little guest house on my property during the summer months of May-Oct. to summer tourists coming to the area. I rent one night stays or several. This small source of income has allowed me to survive as I only have a SS check coming once a month. The winters are very lean, so I am trying to use the income in summer to save and draw from during the winter. I have met many wonderful people as the people who choose to travel this way are usually very friendly and outgoing folk. Thank you, Marilyn Raffaele/Cedar, MI
