“Looking out over the lake, I felt enveloped in the most peaceful, loving utopia.”
Laurie Kahn

While the temperature is warm now, soon our gorgeous Door County landscape will begin to lean into fall and the waters of our Lake Michigan beach will seem to take on an urgency. The roilng whitecaps. The cold dark hues of the surf. The migration of birds, flying low over the water, sites set on warmer climes. There is a comforting rhythm to life at our four-season beach and we want to share it with you.

Isn’t it time you “felt enveloped in the most peaceful, loving utopia?”

Come stay at our Lake Michigan Beach this fall.
