The fall color season in Northern Michigan is at its richest along the scenic lake side drive along Lake Michigan. The upscale Mardo Lodge is nestled in the middle of this naturally beautiful, vibrant area. Michigan greets fall colors in September, and the autumn hues usually linger until mid-October. When it comes to Fall colors, the west coast of northern Michigan is particularly gorgeous. In fact, in traveling the rolling farmland, hilly woodlands and beach views near our log home, it’s clear why this part of Michigan one of the best places in the country for fall color viewing. See blazing yellows and oranges, deep reds and russets all about.
