What a different year this has been! We didn’t know early on what to expect with regards to which amenities would be available and who was going to travel to northern Michigan this summer. Biggest question was – How is everything going to work?
We are happy to report that everything worked out very well! All 3 pools were able to open mid to late June, the fitness center opened as well and of course tennis, pickleball and hiking trails were all available.
We had more visitors this summer than we have had in years. And although most area events were cancelled due to the pandemic, our owners and guests still had plenty to explore such as the Petoskey State Park Beach, a multitude of nature preserves, boating on the Inland Waterway and birding on the Trout Creek Trails as well as the Sunset Birding Trail.
The on-site amenities…pools, hot tubs, fishing and trails of course are right there so really no need to venture out if you didn’t want to. And because you’re in a condo with a kitchen and dining table, ordering dinner for take-out from area restaurants has been a great option plus there are so many that put in outdoor dining.
The weather has been beautiful…so many sunny warm days. This is obviously a bonus to be enjoyed. And it is still sunny but the temps have cooled for now to an average I would say of 70 degrees. In our option that is the perfect weather.
So now we are looking toward fall. We have some great fall specials for you to consider. If you are into wineries there are many in this area with beautiful views and of course great wine. A drive through the famous Tunnel of Trees with a stop at the Good Hart General Store for an awesome chicken pot pie is a must-do. Birds will begin migrating soon so it would be a great time to bird on the trails, bike along Lake Michigan and simply retreating to a Trout Creek Condo in Harbor Springs is reason enough to head up north before the snow flies.
