Don and I went to the the 2014 Northern Home and Cottage Tour on Saturday. There were 10 places on the tour but we only were able to make it to 4 of them due to a later start AND the distance between each place on the tour.
We began with the 1st home listed, which was on Torch Lake (http://mynorth.com/2014/08/2014-northern-home-cottage-home-tour-european-accent/) It is a beautiful home but "a bit much" for my tastes.
Next we went to a place located on the shore of East Bay. If it had been the only place we had visited, it would have been enough for the tour. ;) IT IS FANTASTIC! It was a private home but has since been donated to a non-profit organization. (http://mynorth.com/2014/08/2014-northern-home-cottage-home-tour-one-for-the-ages/)
We took photos of it but there are many photos on the link (http://pinehollow.org) which will be more informative. DEFINITELY check it out! "My" favorite bedroom was "Michigan".
Behind the tree/bush in the previous photo is where this next photo was taken.
Our next stop was on Old Mission Peninsula, although we did not take any photos (http://mynorth.com/2014/08/2014-northern-home-and-cottage-home-tour-barn-reno/)
The last home we toured was also on Old Mission Peninsula, but towards the center of the Peninsula amongst the fields and orchards (http://mynorth.com/2014/08/2014-northern-home-and-cottage-tour-farmhouse-reno/).
It was a very enjoyable day!
