Cozy “Inn” for a Winter Michigan Getaway

It’s almost like it happens overnight. We suddenly want to feel the warm, cozy feelings of relaxing in front of a fire and knowing the air is chilly outside with snowflakes falling gently from the sky. It’s a time to snuggle up with a good book while enjoying a cup of hot cocoa or tea and spending time with loved ones. It sounds like a fairy tale, BUT we have connections!
