Livingston business owners appreciate customer support

Melissa Kunert, who comes from a family with strong roots in the Portage Lake area, has spent most of her life enjoying the Huron River and Lakes; now she and her father are using their deep experience with Michigan’s waters to embark on a new adventure.

Her father, Kerry Klave, and his family operated Klave’s Marina until it was sold to new owners in 2021. Later that year, the father-daughter team launched NautiMI on the River, which offers small craft rentals, a boutique with products primarily made in Michigan, coffee, breakfast and light meals and ice cream at 9260 McGregor Road.

“I’ve gotten private messages and comments on my posts from people thanking us for bringing a business like this to the community,” Kunert said. “I think people appreciate that we’re not just a store that wants to sell them stuff. We want to be a part of their lives.”
