I've had the pleasure of keeping cozy at Nothin Dune in New Buffalo, MI during some of the coldest winter weekends in the Midwest! My boyfriend and I drive up from Chicago every winter for a little R & R together. There is nothing more perfect about a snowy winter day than being curled up with a bottle of wine next to a roaring, toasty fire.
One afternoon we went sledding at Warren Dunes and followed it up with dinner at a place called Timothy's. Which was basically a cottage in the woods.
Nothin Dune is a great destination any time of year. My Boyfriend and I always look forward to going back... maybe next time we'll bring some friends along!
