Winter time in Northern Michigan

Year-round activities abound in Northern Michigan

Most people talk about the mild Summers in Northern Michigan.

What you don't hear all the time is about our gorgeous Winters in Northern Michigan.

There is SO much to do after the snow starts falling.

If you enjoy winter activities you need to live here.

What is the best way to enjoy outdoor activities in the Winter?

The trick is layering.  Layering and warm clothes are a game-changer when it comes to Winter outdoor activities.  Find the companies that make the clothing that is best suited for your body type and then support their cause.

Not only is Winter beautiful, but tourism is down in the Winter, so you can enjoy all your restaurants and hot spots any day of the week.

Here is a list of a few things that you can do during the winter in Northern Michigan.

  1. Ski
  2. Snowshoe
  3. Skate
  4. Sled
  5. Shop
  6. Ice fish
  7. Snowmobile
  8. Hunt
  9. Relax by the fire
  10. Hot tub
  11. Sauna
  12. Spa day
  13. Incredible food choices
  14. Grab a book
  15. Head to the movies

Winter is here and it is a great time to buy and sell!

Call today for a market analysis

The snow is falling in Northern Michigan.  Winter sports are just beginning.  While you are in Northern Michigan let me show you houses, or help you sell your own home.

With all the tourism coming for winter sports, there are both buyers and sellers available in the Winter.  Don't be fooled by the misconception that houses don't sell in the winter.  

Sometimes the Winter is a better market than the Summer.  This could be the year.  Don't miss out!

Northern Michigan Peak Fall Season coming THIS WEEKEND

PEAK fall colors in Petoskey Harbor Springs

fall color northern michigan

petoskey harbor springs fall color

The Petoskey and Harbor Springs area typically are about a week later in peak season than the inland areas of Boyne City, Gaylord, and Indian River.  This past weekend was pretty much peak for those areas and now this coming weekend will be the peak season for Petoskey and Harbor Springs.  

There are still some trees that are confused by this fall weather.

Come up this weekend and enjoy the gorgeous fall foliage of Northern Michigan combined with the blue turquoise waters of Lake Michigan.

The images above are from Deadmans Hill this past weekend.

If you would like to visit some houses while you are up call Trish at 231-838-0411.
