Sip beverages and enjoy alfresco dining on the covered porch or catch the last of the sunset on the patio with a cool drink while grilling dinner on the gas grill. Or take the night off and go out for a great meal at one of the local restaurants. (Take out from Chang's up the street at Fairview Park if you're ready to just relax).
Nap in the backyard in a shaded garden hammock or relax with a good book. Open living space describes the kitchen, dining and living space on upper level. Lower level provides an additional living space with TV, desk, and small dining table. Bar refrigerator and coffee maker are also available for sleepy guests in lower level master suite.
Televisions (3), DVD, VHS, stereo unit with CD and IPod player are included. Electric fireplace on both levels can warm up a chilly evening for skiers to relax and lounge with hot chocolate and a good movie and leave you rejuvenated for another day on the slopes. Nubs Nob and Boyne Highlands are less than 10 minutes away and Boyne Mountain is a 25 minute ride away in Boyne Falls.
In the warm months, go to the beach, get in a boat, take a walk along the Bluff with beautiful views of the Bay or along the water past beaches and marinas. Ride a bike, play golf or tennis, sightsee or shop 'til you drop in the unique stores you will find in Harbor Springs and Petoskey (across the Bay). Take the ferry (30 minutes away) to Mackinac Island for the day and see the Fort and Arch Rock, among other sights. Rent a horse or take a carriage ride while on the Island.
This house is a short walk to town. Skiing slopes (2) are within 10 minutes of the house. You can reach northern Mi by flights to Pellston Airport (closest airport and 25 min. away), or Traverse City - 1.5 hrs. away, or Lansing Mi Airport - 3.75 hrs away. Flights to Detroit are cheaper but drive will take longer.
This home is cozy and comfy and lends itself to gatherings of all sorts. A great getaway for families, or couples/friends, a respite for one or a romantic retreat for two. There's always plenty to do 'up north' and the opportunity to do nothing if the mood strikes.
