Loreen Niewenhuis is making 1,000 mile walk on the beach, all the way around Lake Michigan.  Her brother chose our Inn for a night’s respite.  Here’s how she describes her arrival.  It’s exactly the feeling we hope all our guests have when they turn down our driveway.

I had a long, inland hike in over 80 degree weather to reach Suttons Bay, and when I finally got off route 22 and turned into the driveway of Black Star Farms — bordered by a terraced vineyard and shaded by large trees — I felt my pack lighten on my sore shoulders.

You can read more about Loreen’s visit on her blog – Long Trek – and follow her adventure as she completes each segment of the walk.
