SUMMER 2017 SOLD OUT!
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF A SPECIAL SPRING RATE IN MAY!
MOREL FESTIVAL & MEMORIAL WEEKEND
Although Summers at Evermore have been selling out almost a year in advance, The Walloon Lake area may be more famous for it's "off season" activities. With only a month left in spring some of the regions natural attractions & adventures are at their peak! Some of the highlights in May include:
a. National Morel Mushroom Festival ( May 17 – 21 ):
Includes a carnival, music, seminars on morels, food and much more. Explore Evermore's 56 acres for Morels!
b. Spring Fishing ( May - Early June ):
Spring fishing in Michigan’s inland and great lakes is so renown that it is routinely written about in major publications such as “Bassmaster” and “The Bleacher Report.” Bassmaster, lists Burt Lake and Lake Charlevoix as two of the top bass lakes in the world #22 and #40 respectively. Lake Superior & Michigan are known as two of the top 10 lake trout waters in the world.
c. Birding ( May - June):
Birders form a substantial part of those who have a keen interest in Michigan’s wildlife. Northwest Michigan, especially along the Inland Waterway is a birders paradise during the spring and fall migrations. Of particular interest are Michigan’s population of Bald Eagles & Loons. Michigan is also home to the Kirtland's Warbler, which is ranked the seventh-most sought after species in the country.
d. Memorial Weekend
Memorial Day weekend is the official kickoff to summer in Northern Michigan! Spring temperatures during the day and crisp evenings make this week perfect for enjoying the outdoors by day and the fire pit or hot tub at Evermore by night!
The spacious, COMPLETELY RENOVATED, rustic industrial preserve named "Evermore" is a design collaboration between The Edgewater Design Group, TraceyJordan Colection (TJC) Co-Founders and a team of artisans led by local craftsman Scott Walker. The property was named as a tribute to The TJC founder's great grandfather, Jesse Livermore & the families former Kings Pointe NY estate.
Originally designed with a nod toward a Craftsman style home the team re-imagined the entire scope of this Walloon Lake project when it was discovered that the the new roof was built over the top of the original 1940's structure. Removing the original roof exposed expansive cathedral ceilings & caused the team to completely rethink the architectural style.
The spacious 4800 sqft setting on Walloon Lake in Petoskey, MI now revolves around two enormous stone fireplaces, reaching from the floor through the exposed black beams all the way to the custom wood ceilings.
Rich black & tan cedar siding coupled with stone & extensive landscaping give way to soaring cathedral & picture windows that frame a stunning rustic, industrial interior design that spares nothing when it comes to luxe detail.
Rich with wood, stone, metal & tile, "Evermore" features pampered sleeping quarters for 12 to 14 people surrounding a state of the art kitchen along with the game, living, & dining room.
Outside the luxuries and comfort continue as the striking landscape leads guests across the deck & patio toward the lake. Here you will find the hot tub, sanded beach, dock & natural stone fire pit surrounded by locally made, gliding Adirondack Chairs overlooking the calm waters of Walloon.
Complete with firewood, multiple grills, starter logs, hobo pie makers & more, it's our guess that this is where most will spend their time in the late spring, summer & autumn months.
The seasonal dock at "Evermore" is capable of handling vessels up to 28' & is the perfect location to watch the occasional water skier & boat cruise by. Guests will also find that we have provided Hobie kayaks, paddle boards, a classic fishing boat & much more to ensure lasting memories on one of the worlds most exclusive lakes.
The outdoor adventures don't end there however as "Evermore" also acquired the 57 acre property directly behind the home. With it's five, lake view peaks, rolling hills, and historic apple orchard (which still produces) this natural playground is ideal for those interested in hiking, cross country skiing, Morel Mushroom hunting, wildlife viewing etc.
The kitchen is the heart of a home and we have found this is no less true on vacation. The Kitchen at "Evermore" is state of the art and aside from it's architectural details features professional Viking appliances, a gas range, an enormous island and high end cabinetry all coordinated / designed by local boutique owner Dawn White of Lake Street Design Studio.
The counters are a creamy white variation of "Chocolate Bordeaux" granite coupled with dark walnut on the distressed hutch opposite the range.
This kitchen was made for for the chef who loves to host & for families who enjoy large HOLIDAY GATHERINGS.
The open concept concept floor plan allows those in the dining room unobstructed views of the kitchen, living & game rooms as well as Walloon Lake. Centered around a rustic but elegant 108" salvaged boatwood table you can comfortably seat 8 while another eight can be seated at the island counter and game room table.
Centered on the floor to ceiling, fieldstone fireplace guests have views of Walloon Lake from both of the custom sofa's. The comfortable living room also features a unique, 100 year old, reclaimed Russian oak coffee table, soaring ceilings, plus a 70" 1080p LED smart TV, Direct TV & high speed internet.
The founders of The TraceyJordan Collection tasked architect Michael Karr & craftsman Scott Walker with creating a lakeside master suite that smartly utilized the available space to create a serene, spa like retreat. We think they over achieved.
The master bathroom features a huge seamless glass shower with multiple shower heads including an overhead rain shower. As with the foyer bathroom the river rock shower floor massages your feet as you enjoy the provided Tommy Bahama, spa toiletries.
Coupled with ample space, the dual sink, Carrera marble vanity & custom mirror, this is the most talked about bathroom in the home.
The sleeping area of the master suite is elegantly furnished with a king sized upholstered bed, rustic industrial furnishings, an electric fireplace capable of warming the room independent of the central climate control systems & original works of art by Loui Jover & others.
Comfort & a peaceful night sleep is essentially guaranteed by the 1000 thread count linens, designer pillows, a plush down comforter all accompanying the Posturepedic Hybrid Elite Plush Mattress.
For those who require a little entertainment prior to falling asleep, the master suite is also equipped with a 50" 1080p LED smart TV, Direct TV & high speed internet.
Upstairs Guest Bedroom:
Climbing the unique steel & wood stairwell from the game room, you will find the upstairs guest room immediately to your right. While this may be the smallest of the guest rooms it commands the best views of Walloon Lake. Situated on the second floor, the elegant, queen sized upholstered bed & accompanying rustic industrial furnishings face the large windows offering gorgeous, birds eye views of the lake. The room receives abundant natural light through it's easterly facing windows and is also appointed with a custom closet & original works of art.
As with all bedrooms, 1000 thread count linens, designer pillows, a plush down comforter plus a 47" 1080p LED smart TV, Direct TV & high speed internet are also featured.
It's not just for the kids! Without exception, this is the most talked about bedroom in the house. Although the space was designed for the younger generations with it's dual, steel & wood, built in twin & full bunk beds, built in 12ft long window seat and PS3 gaming system complete with game library, we keep hearing that adults are equally enamored with the space.
This large room can sleep 4-6 in the built in bunk beds and easily 1-2 more in the 12ft long window seat area.
