I’m officially back in the office after spending the last 5 days exploring the northern region of Michigan’s lower peninsula! Right now I’m busy doing all the unglamorous things like catching up on emails and handling client flight delays — but I promise that soon I will be sharing with you all the goodness from this close-to-home getaway. Everything from the lowdown on local wineries, the best eats, and how to access gorgeous lake views (like this!)

Until then, enjoy the view 🌲☀️ 🌊

Good Morning from Anne's Tablet - “Her love of this island and its beauty in the words of her heroine, Anne.”

Anne's Tablet is a memorial to the author, Constance Fenimore Woolson who wrote the 19th-century novel, “Anne." The novel depicts the conflicts faced by its heroine as she leaves her home village, Mackinac Island, to seek a future as a young woman in the Northeastern United States.

You can find Anne's Tablet on the East Bluff just past Fort Mackinac overlooking the harbor.

Most Enjoyable Stay! ✨ This hotel is in-line with a high-end boutique hotel yet retains the charm for which it is known. Check-in was flawless and welcoming. The room was beautiful, well-appointed, and spotlessly clean. The bedding was so comfortable, and the shower actually had pressure! There was a refrigerator, coffee maker, ample towels, and Beekman 1802 toiletries. The view from our room was beautiful. On the grounds in the evening are two chimera fire pits for people to gather around, and the porches with rocking chairs were a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the water and marina. There are bicycle rentals in front of the property. The hotel is an easy stroll to the busy downtown yet situated on the quieter end of Main Street. After staying in many places on the Island, we would like to stay here again and will make a point to do so. ⁠
