This cottage is tucked away in a quiet community of mostly cottage homes and retired couples. Panoramic sunrise views of Green Lake in its full fall splendor can be seen from any room in the house. Relax with a beverage in the swing on the wraparound porch or inside in front of the fireplace on cold nights. If you are sharing your vacation with family or friends, you will want to draw straws on who sleeps in the newly renovated second floor master suite. The second floor commands primo views of the lake from the master bedroom and includes an office, den (fourth bedroom), full bath and an ''away room'' (if you have small children you understand). Bikes are available to ride to the Interlochen Arts Academy just 2 miles away. Listen to 'free' concerts on campus outside Kresege auditorium at Interlochen Center for the Arts or purchase tickets to enjoy incredible evening performances as you watch the sun set on the lake from your seats.
One last gaze over a tranquil lake. The memories of a week gone by.
Surprise guests were we when meeting an oh so gratious Deb. The warmth of her house helped settle this "homeless" couple.
Long strolls along the big lake's coast. A taste of wine then petting the sleeping bear.
Star gazing at 3:30 am and sunrise chats. The company of grown children.
All this and more filled our days with joy and wonderment. We thank Jehovah for leading us here and creating a backdrop that helped bring peace of mind.
Until next time - Michael, Jeannette, Dawn, Jason and Jeremy
Gourmet dining, shopping and entertainment await you in Traverse City, just 13 miles away, though Interlochen also boasts a homemade bakery shop and the Hoffbrau, a local favorite with great food and atmosphere. Drive a half hour in the opposite direction to enjoy the quaint little towns of Empire and Frankfurt with their sweeping vistas of Lake Michigan along the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Shoreline.
Check out the hiking and biking trail maps in the cottage for a list of the many beautifully wooded trails in the area.
