My wife and I are contemplating a move and purchase of a lakeside home in northern Michigan. The home has a gorgeous lake view but with that comes a 85' vertical difference between lake level and home level and a very steep bank with more than 100 stairsteps to the lake.
We need the exercise but at some point it could become a real problem. I'm getting rough quotes over the phone from all over the country of between $50k-$90k for a hillside tram system (holds up to four people or 800lbs) which seems a bit excessive. Does anyone have any experience with such a system?
