This week I am back doing work in Newberry, MI. I was super excited to come back and stay at the Chamberlin’s Ol’ Forest Inn. This place is awesome. It’s a huge old house that built in the early 1900’s and moved to its current location. It is located on Big Manistique Lake and has awesome views. I was able to convince one of my co-workers to stay here as well…another needed more ‘work space’ and went to the Comfort Inn located just outside Newberry. I have heard that the Comfort Inn is not clean, though.
Staying here makes it feel like I didn’t even work each day. The Inn keepers make you feel at home, and the food is absolutely fantastic! I was the first guest of 2013 to kayak on the lake. The last of the ice melted 8 days ago. I kayaked over to the island today to check out the cabins that are there. Totally worth it; there were also four canada geese nests. I had no idea how big their eggs are.
On my last visit it was March, and a ton of snow was dumped on us during the week. I brought snow shoes with me for that trip. I am heading back to Petoskey tomorrow for a three day weekend.
Friday will be a ‘family day’. My last living grandmother passed away last week. It was her wish to not have a funeral or service. Just the spreading of her ashes by her children over my grandfather and their poodle. She will be missed!
