This has been quite a winter here in Northern Michigan, plenty of snow, cold temperatures that drive some people crazy, but keep the snow lovers happy. Snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, and all the other activities we love up here have been better than we have seen in years.
Now that it is all starting to wind down, and Spring is at our doorstep, our attention is starting to focus on all the great things there are to do here in the warm months. Boating, kayaking, motorcycling, all the festivals, golfing, the list goes on forever. Truly something for every taste, from 5 star resorts to rustic camping for lodging, gourmet restaurants to mom & pop diners, some of the most scenic roads for touring, beautiful rivers for canoeing & kayaking, Blue Ribbon trout streams, and lakes that are unmatched anywhere. Torch Lake, Lake Michigan, Lake Bellaire, Lake Charlevoix, and so many others are right here, in Northwest Michigan, the best place to be if you are a 4 season lover.
If you have ever wanted to have a get-away place, there truly is no better place to unwind than here. Something for the whole family. Festivals like The National Cherry Fest in Traverse City, Rubber Ducky Festival, Polish Fest, Venetian Festival, Outdoor Fest, Alpenfest, again the list goes on and on.
What makes this area even better is the fact you can still own a piece of this heaven on earth for a reasonable price, compared to any other 4 season resort area. Condos at Shanty Creek in Bellaire, as well as other resorts in the area are available to purchase at prices that allow the owner to utilize all the skiing, golfing, and the lakes & other activities in the area, and by putting it into a rental program, in many case letting it pay for itself.
I like northern Antrim County because it's centrally located to all the things that makes NW Michigan so great. Wineries on the Leelanau and Mission Peninsulas, Sleeping Bear Nat'l Lakeshore, Mackinaw, Petoskey, Gaylord, Charleviox, and all the cool places in between are all within an easy 90 minute ride on the prettiest roads you can find anywhere.
If you ever thought about having a place here in paradise, hunting property, condo, home, lakefront property, or investment property, this is a great time to get serious about looking into making that dream come true. With cost of ownership being still relatively affordable, and the way the market is looking, that isn't gone last forever.
