We all know the beauty of “up north” summers, but have you experienced the awakening of spring? Beginning in late April, the woods, hillsides and meadows come alive confirming the end of the long winter. Apple and cherry blossoms, bulbs of all kinds and fresh new greenery give you the feeling that it is great to be alive. Share the feeling with your special loved one.

Some say spring offers up some of the best fishing of the year. We agree. Season openers for bass, pike and the various salmon and trout will really get your attention. Morels anyone? A mushroom hunters delight awaits you, especially with the abundance of nearby public lands. Prefer to stay in? Look no further than across the street to restock your food and beverage supply. A full service deli is available in addition to breakfast and lunch.

The colors of autumn are something to behold. This quiet time is considered the most beautiful by many. The hillsides and valleys are difficult to describe, making for an unforgettable display. Fall getaways will make you feel like Northern Michigan is your own…a perfect time to escape.

For the young and the forever young, this serene and tranquil time of the year can be very romantic. Experience fine dining, walks in the woods, and breath taking scenic drives in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. A sunset on Little Traverse Lake is picture perfect from your cottage with a campfire completing the day. Come see all the seasons “up north” for yourself at Paul’s Paradise Cottages on Little Traverse Lake in Leelanau County, Michigan.
