Lori Magelky is a fan of Lake to Lake’s Facebook timeline. She loves Pure Michigan fall for its colorful foliage. And she just won our quarterly drawing for a $250 gift certificate, redeemable for the next year at any of 110 quality-assured Lake to Lake-member B&Bs across the state. On top of that, she will enjoy a complimentary copy of Michigan Bed & Breakfast Cookbook, a compilation hot-off-the-press of nearly 300 of innkeepers’ favorite recipes from breakfasts and desserts to appetizers and entrees.
Ninety bed and breakfast aficionados entered the drawing, bringing the total number of Lake to Lake fans to over a thousand. Each told what they most liked about a Pure Michigan getaway in autumn. Jessica T said, ” I love the colors… I love the warm sun and the crisp air. I love the smell. I love wearing hoodies! I love the food… apples and cider and donuts! I love fall in Michigan! It’s one of my favorite times of the year!”
Jodi M makes us wish we could make everyone a winner. She said she used to live in Michigan until her husband was transferred to Ohio. “We miss everything… the lakes, the sunsets, the farmers’ markets and Bells beer, but mostly the people. We would love to come home….”
Dawn E likes to cozy up to a warm fire with a blanket, a book and a glass of Michigan wine. For Marie D it’s the crisp air and great food. Jeff C treasures the colors, the softness of the sunlight and “all the great memories of my wonder years growing up in Allegan.” Kim J enjoys a steaming cup of coffee on a brisk morning, watching the leaves whip the ground.
Other fall favorites echo our own: night-time campfires, hot cocoa, fresh apples, pumpkins, scarecrows, hot soup and Halloween. Others are more esoteric: having nowhere to be, spending precious alone time with a spouse, peace and quiet, relaxation and being schedule free.
Join us for our next B&B giveaway at the next Solstice when we welcome winter this December. If you don’t want to wait that long, explore our wonderful bed and breakfast inns and choose your getaway today.
