Truly a gem!

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Paradise Pines! Peaceful setting on a beautiful, serene lake. This cabin was comfortable and yet cozy and was decorated very nice. It was very clean and well-stocked with anything we needed. Views were just breathtaking from the many windows. It was the perfect arrangement for 2 couples having bedrooms on 2 different floors, each with their own bathroom. Owners were very helpful with planning and supplying local information. Would highly recommend this cabin and it's owners! It is truly a gem! Thanks for sharing your paradise with us!

Paradise Pines getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 2 years ago and wanted to come back again to unwind and recharge ourselves. The home was still beautiful and the weather exceptional. We didn't lack for anything and even caught a few fish. We were actually sorry to leave but have some great memories.

Perfect summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful and had everything that my family and I needed for a great vacation. The cabin is beautifully decorated, spacious and loaded with all the necessities. Beach towels, cookware, fishing poles, you name it, it was there. Kids loved the loft area which offered them a space of their own to lounge, watch tv and play games. The deck on the back of the house was a favorite for the adults to sit and drink coffee in the morning. Location was great. Centralized to everything my family wanted to do.... shopping in town, wine tasting on both peninsulas and adventures to the sleeping bear dunes! Molly was extremely responsive any timbre I had questions both before and during our stay. Thank you so much for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

About Molly Menegay

My husband and I split our time between our home in Dallas, TX and Bass Lake. We were both born in the midwest with summer ties to Northern Michigan. We have six grown children and 8 precious grandchildren!

Molly Menegay purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Molly Menegay chose Interlochen

We fell in love with this home while visiting family Up North in 2014. It is a quaint cottage with tons of character. It sits on a small lake boasting beautiful views. Nature abounds with great fishing, varied bird watching and singing frogs!!! You'll love this serene setting. There is a fire pit and patio by the lake. You will also enjoy our deck across the back of the house with a dining table and comfy furniture.

The famous Sleep Bear Dunes on Lake Michigan is only 30 minutes away and a "must see" while visiting northern Michigan.

Michigan is becoming well known for its wineries; it is currently the 4th largest grape-growing state. Northern Michigan is broken into 3 distinct growing areas; Leelanau Peninsula, Old Mission Peninsula, and the Petoskey and Harbor Springs.
