From the Founders of OurGrandLakeCabin - Jim and Marianne Velayas
Pictures of Jim and Marianne from their early years in Bavaria, Germany 1958 

In 1977,  Jim and Marianne Velayas bought the  OurGrandLakeCabin property  (then was vacant land) because it lovingly reminded Marianne of where she was born in Munich, Bavaria, Germany.  These pictures taken in the Bavarian Alps from the 1950's show how right Marianne was.   Jim just wanted a great place to fish and a dock for his hand-built boat named the "Junk Yard Dog".
