Take a fall sailing adventure on a floating B&B

August 17th, 2016 by Sandy White

You’ll literally cruise into fall when you book a sailing adventure on Schooner Manitou, one of Michigan’s most unique B&Bs. A few cabins are still available for four-and six-day Northern Michigan windjammer cruises aboard the 114-foot ship starting September 7.

Take a fall sailing adventure

Your sailing adventure begins when Schooner Manitou casts off and sets sail.

Picture yourself on deck in Grand Traverse Bay as Captain Brett Derr gives the order to cut the dock lines and points the bow north. The buildings of Traverse City recede as warm September breezes fill the huge sails (all 3,000 square feet). You’ll get to know your shipmates quickly because Schooner Manitou accommodates a maximum of only 24 passengers.

The remaining berths on these windjammer cruises are filling up fast:

  • Take a fall sailing adventure

    Host those sails, Matey! Pitch in to help if you want or just watch the fun.

    Six-Day Explorer Cruise (Sept. 7-13, $939 per person)

  • Michigan Craft Beer Cruise (Sept. 15-19, four days, $769). Your guide will be Amy Sherman of Grand Rapids, a chef and craft beer aficionado. Yes, there will be special hors d’oeuvres and craft beer pairings for you to taste.
  • Star Gazer Cruise (Sept. 22-26, four days, $769). Your guide to the night sky will be Mary Stewart Adams of Harbor Springs, director of the Headlands International Dark Sky Park and host of a weekly astronomy program broadcast on Interlochen Public Radio.

What to expect on your sailing adventure

The exact route of your sailing adventure will be a function of wind and weather conditions. Manitou displaces 100 tons, meaning it’s a heavy ship  that will be comfortable in most sea conditions.

Take a fall sailing adventure

Where will you be when the sun rises? The only certainly is your surroundings will be lovely.

You can expect to see islands and scenic coastlines you could never see from a car, to anchor for the night in secluded bays where the moon and stars provide the only illumination, and to walk on beaches where yours may be the only footprints.

Take a fall sailing adventure

Your three squares each day are served hot from this 1926 Glenwood wood stove.

Throughout most of the sailing season, Schooner Manitou offers a variety of short-duration cruises near Traverse City and an overnight bed and breakfast experience culminating in a hearty breakfast prepared on “Cleo,” the ship’s wood-burning stove. On these September windjammer cruises, Cleo is kept busy all day, turning out healthy, home-cooked meals and snacks. All that fresh air will give you an appetite. And you’ll sleep like a baby in your below-decks bunk, equipped with fresh bedding, windows, lights, and ventilation. Plenty of headroom, too.

Take a fall sailing adventure

You’ll enjoy fresh, homemade breakfasts and dinners family style in the main cabin, and lunch buffets served topside.

The Best Michigan B&B “Porches”

September 4th, 2015 by linda

The entire month of August, Michigan Lake to Lake B&B Association posted images on Facebook of porches, decks and courtyards submitted by its bed and breakfast members across the state. We asked our fans to vote for “The Best Place in Michigan to Cool Down” by “liking” their favorites.  Of the 30 contest entries, these are the top eight contenders, presented in order of the number of “likes” received. Huron House, ranked at the very top, garnered 638 “likes” from nearly 5000 views!

Spring Makes Itself Known at Michigan B&Bs

April 10th, 2015 by linda

early thunderstormSpring is making itself known at bed and breakfast inns across Michigan. Yesterday brought the first thunderstorms of the year and they were signature Michigan boomers. Leaving a trail of puddles and rainbows in their wake, their bluster signaled the official start of the growing season. With promises of warmer days and sunshine all this week, we are at the threshold of a powerful new life cycle. Virgil A. Kraft put it most eloquently when he said, “Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.”

Johnny-Jump-Ups are jumping out of the ground at LogHaven Bed & Breakfast and Barn in West Branch, in the Huron National Forest in  the Northwest part of the state.

Michigan B&Bs Share Promises of Spring

March 27th, 2015 by linda

They haven’t appeared quite yet — those magical first signs that spring has arrived. So our Michigan bed and breakfast inns got together some of their favorite early-springtime photos to remind you to keep the faith: the season is almost here.

Sandhill Cranes

In recent Facebook posts, At Willow Pond B&B’s innkeeper alerted us to the babble of Sandhill Cranes flying overhead on their return to Michigan to nest. Pitched somewhere between a chitter and a chortle, their song is as distinctive a harbinger of spring as the sweet warble of the robin. Click on the image to hear their unmistakable sound.

Pussy WillowPussy Willows will soon be on display at Dewey Lake Manor. Did you know their slim, white flowers have no petals? Instead, the blossoms are soft, furry cylinders called catkins.

ForsythiaYellow Forsythia are among the very first flowering  shrubs to say hello to spring. Where you see Forsythia today, you’ll see Lilacs tomorrow, and that’s a promise.

About spring, Anne Rivers Siddons wrote this in “The House Next Door”:
Forsythia that I thought had been dozed into oblivion sprang up
and misted the foundations with lemon icing I yearn for all winter.

Good bye pinecones and silk flowers. No matter how exquisitely fashioned, nothing compares to a morning cup of coffee enjoyed while feasting the eyes on fresh-cut daffodils and hyacinth straight from the the garden. Ahhh, Spring.

Congratulations, “Celebrate Fall” Getaway Winner!

old mission bikingLori Magelky is a fan of Lake to Lake’s Facebook timeline. She loves Pure Michigan fall for its colorful foliage. And she just won our quarterly drawing for a $250 gift certificate, redeemable for the next year at any of 110 quality-assured Lake to Lake-member B&Bs across the state. On top of that, she will enjoy a complimentary copy of Michigan Bed & Breakfast Cookbook, a compilation hot-off-the-press of nearly 300 of innkeepers’ favorite recipes from breakfasts and desserts to appetizers and entrees.

Ninety bed and breakfast aficionados entered the drawing, bringing the total number of Lake to Lake fans to over a thousand. Each told what they most liked about a Pure Michigan getaway in autumn. Jessica T said, ” I love the colors… I love the warm sun and the crisp air.  I love the smell.  I love wearing hoodies!  I love the food… apples and cider and donuts!  I love fall in Michigan!  It’s one of my favorite times of the year!”

Jodi M makes us wish we could make everyone a winner. She said she used to live in Michigan until her husband was transferred to Ohio. “We miss everything… the lakes, the sunsets, the farmers’ markets and Bells beer, but mostly the people. We would love to come home….”

Dawn E likes to cozy up to a warm fire with a blanket, a book and a glass of Michigan wine. For Marie D it’s the crisp air and great food.  Jeff C treasures the colors, the softness of the sunlight and “all the great memories of my wonder years growing up in Allegan.” Kim J enjoys a steaming cup of coffee on a brisk morning, watching the leaves whip the ground.

Other fall favorites echo our own: night-time campfires, hot cocoa, fresh apples, pumpkins, scarecrows, hot soup and Halloween.  Others are more esoteric: having nowhere to be, spending precious alone time with a spouse, peace and quiet, relaxation and being schedule free.

Join us for our next B&B giveaway at the next Solstice when we welcome winter this December. If you don’t want to wait that long, explore our wonderful bed and breakfast inns and choose your getaway today.

 

 

 

 

LOGHAVEN B&B: OFF THE POWER GRID AND ON THE EQUESTRIAN TRAIL

January 23rd, 2013 by linda


LogHaven Bed, Breakfast & Barn is nestled in the heart of the Huron National Forest near West Branch. Innkeepers Gail and Paul Gotter tell its story in their own words….

We are absolutely unique in that we live totally “off the power grid” here at LogHaven Bed & Breakfast.  We make our own electricity using a wind turbine and solar panels. We use all of today’s appliances from dishwasher to microwave, surround sound to satellite TV.  But we don’t get electric bills.  Many of our guests come to our monthly ‘Introduction to Alternative Energy” seminar and stay with us just to observe how we do it.

LogHaven is warm, welcoming and completely contemporary. While self-sustaining, it offers all the modern amenities you expect from a Lake to Lake-member B&B.

Our B&B has three large guestrooms and provides an atmosphere of comfort and hospitality.  Our guests have described LogHaven as “the next best thing to home,” “my view of heaven” and “a wonderful place to relax.”  Outdoor decks surround the building and include a screened-in porch. They are furnished with rocking chairs in which to sit, enjoy a glass of wine and take in the incredible views. A table and chairs is handy for an al fresco lunch or the cocktail hour.

We are a short five miles to cross-country skiing at the Ogemaw Hills Ski Area in the AuSable State Forest. But if you prefer simple countryside skiing over its 15 miles of groomed trails, we have LOTS of snow, woods and trails everywhere! How about skiing right from the front door!

If you have horses, LogHaven has the barn and everything else you’ll need to bring them along for the ride.

Got horses? We invite people and their horses to come to LogHaven for trail-riding. We have all the facilities — stalls, run-ins and pastures — and there are unlimited miles of back roads, trails and two-tracks for those quiet “in the woods” trail rides. Autumn is an especially beautiful time for riding although the wilderness terrain is majestic year around.

Topping off a great night’s stay, LogHaven offers a complete “country” breakfast prepared by Chef Paul.  Enjoy baked goods, fresh fruit and perhaps a strata, skillet dish or french toast served with home-made jams and locally-produced maple syrup.  Coffee is available any time of day, and we offer a variety of complimentary beverages right in your room. Enjoy cookies hot and fresh from the oven every day!

LogHaven Bed, Breakfast and Barn recently returned
to Lake to Lake membership. Welcome back!

MORE CHRISTMAS MAGIC AT MICHIGAN B&Bs

December 20th, 2012 by linda

At Chateau Chantal Winery and B&B on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, the tasting room features this “Celebrate!” Tree, decorated with cases of “Celebrate!,” the winery’s pink sparkling wine. Clever!

 

 

 

 

 

The fireplace is a holiday focus at The Kalamazoo House (left) in downtown Kalamazoo and at The House on the Hill in Ellsworth, near Traverse City. Lavishly decorated mantles and stockings waiting to be stuffed are de regueur for the season. Kalamazoo House innkeepers aren’t planning a special celebration for New Year’s Eve because the city-wide New Year’s Festival and parties galore start just outside their front door. In Ellsworth, guests are invited to enjoy the  annual “Ring in the New Year with the House on the Hill” party, complete with appetizers.

Who has more fun dressing up for the holidays
than Serendipity B&B in Saugatuck?

 

 

 

 

The innkeepers at Martha’s Vineyard B&B in South Haven (right) have baked up batch after batch of traditional Christmas cookies for their guests this year, while innkeepers at neighboring Victoria Resort B&B got raves for these delectable Michigan “mittens” at a holiday cookie exchange.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 No self-respecting B&B would let its exterior go unadorned. These inns, from every corner of Michigan, share the Christmas spirit despite their geographical distances. From the top left are: A Night to Remember B&B in Lexington, Michigan’s Thumb; the gazebo at The Inn At Old Orchard Road, Holland; Antiquities’ Wellington Inn in Traverse City, open for holiday tours on December Saturdays; and Comstock House in Big Rapids.

From all 110 fine Michigan inns that meet the standards to qualify as members of the state’s Lake to Lake Bed and Breakfast Association, may your holidays be merry and bright – and your new year blessed with a relaxing, pampering B&B getaway.

 

MICHIGAN’S MAGICAL CHRISTMAS INN

December 11th, 2012 by linda

Dutch Colonial Inn is a pretty bed and breakfast in a pristine Holland  neighborhood that shows its Dutch heritage with fresh-swept streets, manicured lawns and a sense of safety and serenity.  At Christmas, it turns magical.

The Jenny Lind Suite is one of four guest rooms with private baths, all decked out for the holidays. Sure enough, the fireplace mantle is covered with lighted Snow Village miniatures.

Innkeepers Bob and Pat Elenbaas make decorating their B&B a  family affair.  Their five  grandchildren earn ten bucks apiece to bring boxes out of storage and into designated positions on each of the four floors of the roomy 1928 home. That’s just the beginning of a three-week-long process. It takes time to decorate nine indoor Christmas trees — each with its own theme and one especially “for the birds.” It takes a village to install 16,000 colorful holiday lights of all shapes and sizes. It takes the patience of saints to lovingly unbox, place and light up 260 Original Department 56 Snow Village pieces and the many dozens of companion cars, trucks, sleighs, pine trees, Christmas trees, shopkeepers, ministers, school teachers, pets, pooches, Santas and children — all the accessories that bring them to life.

The little train is one of many animated Snow Village pieces.

Decorative paintings and wall hangings are carted into storage and changed out for snowy holiday images throughout the house and guest rooms. Every surface is covered in Christmas-themed notions and curiosities of every elegant and collectible ilk. But whimsical Snow Village miniatures rule. They cover nearly every surface in every guest room and common area and even in Pat and Bob’s private living quarters. Unless  you see it with your own eyes, it’s difficult to fathom how many pieces there are in the number 2-6-0.

This is one of dozens of Snow Village vignettes that populate the surfaces at Dutch Colonial Inn. Notice the windmill and the Hershey’s truck.

 

This detail of the vignette above and to the left demonstrates the attention to detail that makes Snow Village miniatures such captivating collectibles.

Bob and Pat aren’t long-time collectors. They were given their first Snow Village miniature as a gift just 10 years ago. It was love at first light. Since then, they’ve made collecting a science with records of pieces acquired carefully maintained to avoid duplication on vacations and shopping trips. Once, a friend called Bob and told him about a classified ad spotted in The Grand Rapids Press offering a large number of pieces for $1600. A divorce occasioned the sale and the ex-wife wanted them gone. In the end, getting no buyers, she settled for $600. Bob drove off with his pick-up truck stacked high with immaculately-maintained, boxed miniatures that turned out to include some of the earliest pieces first marketed in 1976.  Some of them are valued at much more than the entire truck-load price.

The photo gives no sense of size. These multiple tiers are a good five feet high and stretch wider than eight feet. This is what the Village of Snow Village looks like with its lighted windows twinkling in the dark. Peek inside the Krispy Creme with its automated doughnut conveyor, the jewelry store with its myriad of tiny gems, the rockin’ American Bandstand studio, the pool hall with its good ole’ boys racking up another frame — and dozens’ more icons of Americana.

Guests who book stays at Dutch Colonial Inn over the holidays are treated to a unique Christmas fantasy world that’s a little like a friendly museum where you can look as long as you want at whatever you want, practically wherever you want.

Give yourself a holiday treat: book lodging at this wonderfully warm, friendly and magical B&B this holiday season — or next.  Never fear: if you don’t finde time before Christmas, plan a getaway after the holiday. With three weeks of hard work invested in putting them up, Bob and Pat aren’t keen to take the decorations down before the spirit moves them — maybe sometime in February. There’s plenty of time — time well spent and well worth the going room rate.

Cranes and Color: Hallmarks of a Pure Michigan Fall

September 25th, 2012 by linda

Fall in Michigan is more than a season to seek out colorful foliage: it’s a season to discover unique ways nature shows its secret selves, sometimes in dramatic displays of sheer numbers all shouting in strange voices — like the annual migration of the Sandhill Cranes. Oh, don’t pretend to yawn and mutter under your breath about bird watchers. Have you ever seen or heard a Sandhill Crane in the wild? Well then. Give this video clip the chance to change your mind.

Michigan’s largest bird, Sandhill Cranes stand up to five feet tall and have a wing span of up to seven feet. Their long, skinny necks and legs make them appear even larger. Imagine the spectacle of hundreds of these giants gathered in one place.

Let Southern Michigan bed and breakfast inns take care of your night times while you experience day times celebrating these giant, prehistoric-like kin to the dinosaurs. Spend the weekend in Calhoun County at CraneFest XVIII, the Sandhill Crane & Art Festival, October 13-14 starting at noon each day. It’s at the Kiwanis Youth Conservation Area, 22300 15 Mile Rd near Bellevue, 49021. Parking is $3; admission is free.

Sponsored by the Michigan Audubon Society, the event includes an artist village featuring the work of 30 Michigan artists, birdwatching from the Youth Area and at the adjacent Baker Sanctuary’s Meadow and Marshlands Trail, naturalist-led hikes, bird crafts. live birds of prey with the Michigan Hawking Club and a whole lot more. The cranes themselves are best seen as they begin arriving at the sanctuary just before dusk. Bring a blanket, lawn chairs and binoculars to enjoy this spectacular event as it unfolds before your eyes.

If you can’t make it to the festival, crane viewing begins the weekend after CraneFest and continues every weekend through November 11 from 4 – 7 p.m.  Binoculars are essential to enhance the viewing experience.

Other Sandhill Viewing Venues
You can also view cranes daily from dawn to dusk at Michigan Audubon Society’s Phyllis Haehnle Sanctuary in nearby Jackson County. Find the details here. More than 350 cranes were spotted as of today, and the numbers grow daily until, in November, they leave for points south. 

Sandhill Crane Vineyards will add it’s signature wine to the mix in a Cranes, Colors and Cabernet Festival on October 20. The winery is teaming up with communities around the Waterloo-Pinkney Recreation Area, including the charming Village of Chelsea, which celebrates the gathering of the cranes starting the first Saturday in October through November 7.

If you are going to watch cranes near Bellevue, we recommend you book your bed and breakfast lodging now at these nearby inns, each “quality assured” by the Lake to Lake B&B Association and located within 30 miles of the festival site:
The Kalamazoo House, Kalamazoo;  Adrounie House B&B, Hastings; Olde Farmhouse B&B, Marshall; National House Inn, Marshall; Albion Heritage B&B, Albion; and The Farmhouse Inn, Homer.

If you’re mixing Cabernet with your cranes in Jackson or sampling festival fare in Chelsea, here are sure bets in addition to inns already listed in Marshall, Homer and Albion that will make your experience even more memorable:
Hankerd Inn, Pleasant Lake; Dewey Lake Manor, Brooklyn; Chelsea House Victorian Inn, Chelsea; Waterloo Gardens B&B, Chelsea; Munro House B&B and Spa, Jonesville; Topliff’s Tara B&B, Williamston; and Bunn-Pher Inn in Pinkney.
