Just down the hill and to the left is a viewing dock for sunsets just like these. Tonight it was occupied by just 2 couples, but starting this weekend sitting and standing room will be increasingly harder to come by. If you’re staying with us and want to catch the show just let us know! We’re happy to drop you off in one of our golf carts or point you in the direction of our cruiser bikes to help you beat the crowds.

I pass this scene every time I drive from Boyne to Petoskey. I've been telling myself for two years "I need to stop, I need to stop and shoot this." Last year, the Trillium faded before I had the chance. This year, I made the time to do so and I'm elated that I did. There truly is pleasure in the pathless woods (or woods with a two-track running though them!) . . . . . . #puremichigan #puremittigan #michiganwild #michiganders #mittenstatelove #mittenlove #naturalmichigan #awesomemitten #greatlakesstate #upnorthmichigan #michigrammers #upnorth #boynecity #spring #northernmichigan #hikemichigan #midwestmoment #mlive #michiganawesome #nomadsofmi #gtliving #enjoymichigan #themittenstate #themitten #puremichiganders #puremittenpride #midwestcaptures #michiganderthreads #womenwhoexploremichigan #lovewhereyoulive

The former Men’s Cottage at the Traverse City State Hospital, now the Grand Traverse Commons. This building is abandoned but is being preserved for future use. It will be interesting to see what this becomes in the years ahead. . . #traversecity #tcmi #upnorth #northernmichigan #michigan #abandoned #urbandecay #grandtraversecommons #thevillagetc #renovation #puremittigan #puremittenpride #awesomemichigan #urbex #urbanexploration #gtliving #hoosierjoey

We are thrilled to have @lakesandgrapes as one of this years sponsors--you’ll spot their logo featured on your Leland Wine Fest wristband! Here’s a few words from the Lakes and Grapes founder, Abby Clear! “Lakes and Grapes is designed to inspire people to get out and enjoy all things Lakes, Grapes, and Midwestern living. Lakes and Grapes is a premium Great Lakes region brand, representing the ideals and aspirational qualities of classic Lakes and Grapes living: optimism, community, adventure, and infinite possibilities. Growing up, I was fortunate enough to call Traverse City, Michigan home; a town that is blessed with miles of Lake Michigan coastline, surrounded by a countryside full of vineyards and orchards. Living around a Great Lakes wine region, summers meant escaping to the lake, taking the boat out at sunset, enjoying happy hour at the marina or indulging in the local wine scene. Simply, life was better at the lake, surrounded by grapes. From boat cruises to sunset sips in the vines, some of my best memories were created with friends and family around the Lakes and Grapes lifestyle.”

Oh the magical place they call “Up North”.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We're lucky enough to call it home.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What keeps us coming back?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The people, yes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The outdoors, love em.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The little town events every. single. weekend, you know it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But I think it has something to do with the water.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The calm. The color. The sound.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The vastness of feeling like you’re at the ocean or strolling the beaches in the Caribbean.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I told Scott that wherever we live, I want to love it. I think we nailed it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m telling ya friends, come on over to Northern Michigan, it’s a place you won’t forget!

From yesterday’s trail run. Who can help me identify these wildflowers?

This week's Fun Run is at @thelittlefleet. If we're lucky, the blossoms will be popping! See you at 6:30PM.

We enjoyed showing @winedestinations around our vineyard recently! It was a beautiful day to showcase the hills and vines! 🍇 📸: @winedestinations

Hold onto your hats, Northern Michigan, we actually have sun in our forecast today!

“Daddy that wood is beautiful” she said. This is the last of the original vintage era 1900 baseboards that we salvaged and stripped old dark varnish off with citrus gel stripper.

"I smell the fresh sea air, and have never felt so at home in my life, out on the open waters, no land as far as the eye can see. It's amazing, beautiful and the air smells of adventure, just the way it should. Just the way it always would if I could control everythig." — Naya S. (Bridge to Cailai: Book One) ..---...---...

Pssst: Have you been out wildflower hunting yet this spring? I added a new post to my blog about some of my favorite places to find forest floors filled with trillium and other beautiful and fleeting spring ephemerals. I highly recommend finding yourself a woodland wonderland to explore in between rain storms this week. These blooms are from Pete’s Woods in Arcadia, MI. Great spot! https://www.minorthernsoul.com/northern-soul/2019/5/20/trillium-up-north-3-magical-places-to-take-in-the-bloom ✨ ✨ #spring #flowers #trillium #wildflowers #springephemerals #awesomemitten #mynorth #gtliving #upnorthmichigan #nomi #spring #tcmi #puremichigan #naturalmichigan #lakeshoremag #arcadiami #mittenstatelove #puremitten #midwestgrammers #misun #puremichiganders #michiganunsalted #mioutdoor #wearemichiganders

It is officially the week of Bayshore! Check out all these @tctcbayshore enthusiasts from last week's Fun Run!

Sometimes the best medals are the non traditional kind. Happy #medalmonday! I won this sweet duo at the TVC Run the Runway 5k on Saturday. Did anyone else participate in this super cool inaugural event?

.......and then the Fog rolled in! It’s always a surprise when I get out to the lakeshore, because you never know what Lake Michigan is going to do. When I left Traverse City the sky was blue with a few clouds, and when I got closer to the lakeshore it looked like a whole different world. The lighthouse looked eerily beautiful and I definitely was not disappointed. 🌫💦☔️ • • #puremichigan #puremittigan #puremichiganders #renegade_rural #rsa_rural #country_features #countrylivingmag #gtliving #m22life #michigansun #michiganders #michiganawesome #michiganoverboard #thegreatlakesstate #themittenstate #michiganderthreads #wearemichiganders #puremittenpride #awesomemitten #midwestmoment #only_in_michigan #michiganunsalted #capturingmichigan #natural_michigan #upnorthlive #mynorthmedia #greatlakesloving #greatlakesproud #greatlakeslocals #raw_lighthouses

We got some much needed R&R in Traverse City this weekend, but it’s really never enough. Had a photo session with @danstewartphotography with Parker and came back with a few tasty items from @fustinistraversecity that we’re excited to put into a dish. Enjoyed lunch at @brew_tc twice, tried the @greenhousecafetc and it was delicious. Looking forward to the next time. . . #sleepingbeardunes #beach #beachwalk #beachside #beachlife #nomi #tcmi #traversecity #gtliving #mynorthmedia #mittigan #puremittigan #puremichigan #mittenstatelove #lovemichigan #igersmich #moodygrams #moody_tones #agameoftones #michigan #michigansun #michiganawesome #traversecity #grandtraversebay

I didn’t think she would jump on the fallen tree I asked her to, but this girl got up there the moment I asked and stayed until I released her.

I never realized how early tulips bloom compared to a lot of other flowers. I almost went to the festival in Holland Michigan, but passed partially because of the 3 hr drive. . . It was a pleasant surprise to find these beauties in a secret garden like spot in TC. My nieces and I enjoyed exploring amidst the old stone and vibrant colors. . . . . #tulips #vividcolor #spring #gtliving #traversecitymichigan #traversecity #tccommons #secretgarden #takeawalk #northernmichigan #mittensmitten #michiganliving #michiganmoments #michiganview #puremichiganders #mittenpride #mittenadventure #greatlakesstate #michiganawesome #greatlakesproud #mittenstatelove #puremittigan #michiganders #capturemichigan #naturalmichigan

This rainy and cold weekend has me dreaming of warm summer evening beach walks! 🏖

You know it’s been a successful fishing trip when your catch is half as tall as you are! 👏🏻🎣🏆

It’s been a gloomy and rainy weekend, so stop by and cheer yourself up with a glass of Boathouse wine! We’re open 12-5 today 🥂

👏🏻Put your hands together for the @drewhaleband , who will be joining us for this years’ wine fest! 🎼🎤 “Throughout Michigan, the name Drew Hale is synonymous with powerful vocals, compelling lyrics and haunting melodies. In 2016, Drew won the national Country Showdown competition held at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, earning him the title Best New Act in Country Music, as well as the $100,000 cash prize. Most recently, The Drew Hale Band won the Detroit Regional round of 93.1 NashFM’s Nash Next contest. Influenced by Texas roots and artists such as Reckless Kelly and Eric Church, the Drew Hale Band’s music pays homage to the red dirt country and southern rock scenes, as well as paints a picture of their love for the people and culture of Michigan, where the band calls home. The Drew Hale Band can be found playing throughout the Midwest, promoting their latest album, Roots and Wings (including the single, Pieces, featuring Vince Gill). They have shared stages with Frankie Ballard, Trace Adkins, Jana Kramer, Scotty McCreery, LoCash, William Michael Morgan, RaeLynn, Trent Harmon, Drew Baldridge, The Railers, Walker McGuire, Chris Lane, The Cadillac Three, Bret Michaels, and Adam Sanders. They’ve also played festivals with some of Nashville’s biggest recording artists, including Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Dwight Yoakam, Toby Keith, Canaan Smith, and Cassadee Pope. Whether on an intimate stage at one of the many wineries or breweries throughout Michigan, rocking a bar on a Saturday night, or playing festivals such as Common Ground (Lansing, MI) or Arts, Beats, & Eats (Royal Oak, MI), you can count on an eclectic show that delivers a dynamic combination of originals and covers that bridge the gap between country, roots rock, and blues.”

Yesterday was floor sanding day two! Looking better than expected as well, not bad for being 130 years old. -original old growth pine farmhouse 2nd floor from 1890-1910, area is now our 2 kids bedrooms (lilac and sky blue) and landing/hallway. Our master bedroom we sanded and refinished last week was old fir flooring from a 1940’s addition, so it was totally different. Luckily both floors were hidden under nasty carpet and just a few layers of brown and gray paint. Justin did have to patch many pieces with other floor boards he salvaged around the old stair landing to make this project restorable! We like the rustic look of it and will clear coat poly this weekend after he hand sands some more to buff out the brittle splintered areas. . . . #twofoxfarmstead #twofoxfarmsteadrenovation #farmhouse #demolition #remodel #fixerupper #kitchen #nxrrange #farmstead #homestead #renovation #homedesign #homeimprovement #restoration #diyhome #diy #farm #pinefloors #barnporn #puremichigan #upnorth #gtliving #historichomes #michiganfarmhouse #historicpreservation #woodworking #goodbones #modernfarmhouse #timberframe #farmhousestyle

Cheers to our recently released Unoaked Chardonnay! We can’t properly express how flavorful this wine is, its notes of pear, peach and a touch of apricot really shine through. 🍐🍑 Hurry in for a tasting or a bottle, this one usually goes fast! 🥂
