My husband and I and our 2 standard poodles spent a peaceful and beautiful Christmas day and the following day at this amazing tranquil property! It is off the grid. No Wi-Fi, no cell phone service inside the house. We read books, sat by the fire, played board games, took walks, listened to classical music on the sterio there, and watched and listened to the sound of waves. Magical!!! Thank you so much Father Jim for allowing us to make these beautiful memories of Christmas 2018!
In spite of the area having just received 30” of snow (it is not how we imagined our time away) we made the best of it by cooking some meals in the well supplied kitchen and finding our way to the beach through deep snow. We thoroughly enjoyed our walks north along the snow covered dunes of Whitefish SP. The erosion from the recent storm left a 4-6 ft wall of sand. Very interesting. The next day we enjoyed beautiful ice formations at Cave Point Park, and were able to walk quite far into the state park along the bluffs. On recommendation we had dinner one evening at Glidden Lodge’s restaurant just down the road. Wednesday night was German night( too much meat). We opted for Thur and enjoyed the tuna and walleye. Met 2 of the owner’s family members who live across the street. Nice people. I hope they all realize how blessed they are to have such a beautiful place to live. Our last day we experienced the bay filled with ice chunks floating into shore as the lake thawed with temps in the 50s. Thank you for a wonderful getaway. Would love to return to see this gem in summer. The views from the house are so wonderful. We chose to bring our own bedding and towels and do required clean up, which was just fine for us. If there would have been a snow shovel I would have cleared off the decks. The skylight in the master bedroom is an added extra to watch the night sky before falling asleep. This place is beyond a fantastic place to stay. Thank you so much for sharing it!
