Winter’s Pleasures - featured image

As a custom home builder for Northern Michigan, Lakeshore Custom Homes clients often embrace cottage style and lake living. Our minds often relish in the visions of summer and beach activities. With winter just around the corner, we would like to offer a different perspective, one that includes soft fluffy snow, crystal ice-topped lakes, warm companionship, and winter recreational activities.

Traverse City and its surrounding communities have so much to offer the outdoor enthusiast during the winter months. Consider snowmobiling, skiing/snowboarding, cross-country skiing, tubing, tobogganing, and snowshoeing. Traverse City True North is a wonderful resource and great place to start when making your outdoor recreational plans. You can even download a mobile app called Experience 231 that offers locals access to over 300 year-round outdoor activities.

Winter is also a time to savor the comforts of home. Home is where family and friends can gather around the warmth of a fire, snuggle up in blankets, and sip on warm drinks. Home is where the candles are lit. It may be time to dust off your favorite boards games, or learn a new game perhaps cribbage, backgammon, or chess. Its fun to play the oldies but goodies like checkers, Monopoly, and Life. During the summer months you may not make reading a priority. Winter is a good time to visit our local Traverse City District Library or bookstores. We have a great selection of bookstores to choose from such as Horizon Books, Brilliant Books, and The Bookie Joint which is the city’s premier used book store. Why not indulge in a new book, something fictional just for fun, or non-fictional for personal growth?

Get into the kitchen to try out new recipes. Did you know that Oryana, Fustini’s and Northwestern Michigan College offer cooking classes? Why not take a class, then put on a new apron and utilize your own home kitchen creating a fabulous new dinner for your family and friends during the holidays.

Whatever activity fills your senses ~ do that!
