LaBri is the ultimate Northwoods retreat. LaBri means shelter or calm place in French, and you will understand why as you pull down the drive to an inviting one level log cabin. The kids will run around to the lakefront, passing a hammock strung between trees, en-route to the multiple watercraft lined up for their enjoyment. Canoes, kayaks, inflatable water toys, a 14 foot fishing boat await them. The pier invites them out, as they gaze longingly at the swim raft.
Meanwhile, you will enter the living space to find a real Northwoods retreat. The kitchen is equipped with every modern appliance, including the sub zero fridge, and the cabinets reveal every cooking and baking spice you may wish for during your stay. 2 wood burning fireplaces and a large screened in porch will begin to paint the picture of your time to come. Games for all ages are available and the martini glasses stand proud in the cabinet.
Serenity surrounds you as you listen to the haunting cry of the resident pair of loons, zealously protecting a chick or two in the spring or early summer. The eagles will be circling, also looking for the newborn loon chicks. Check out the multiplicity of wildlife, including birds, squirrels of many colors, otters, and the ever present deer. Fill up the bird feeder and watch from the kitchen window, as the deer come through in a parade at night.
Grab a sundowner in the gazebo, and listen to the happy screams of your children playing in the lake. Muskellunge await the clever fisher people, whilst the little fisher people will find the little fishes all day long off the end of the dock.
The fire pit by the lake has hosted countless schmoors parties, and awaits you. Remain quietly after the kids are gone, and you may well be visited by the hoot of the owl.
The forest and trails that surround LaBri make for endless hiking and biking in the summer, and snowshoeing, and cross country skiing in the winter. The slopes of Indianhead and Powderhorn mountains lie just 45 minutes to the north in the UP of Michigan.
Summer or winter LaBri will massage your soul. Come stay with us. It is very likely you will return.
