Up North

Our home is in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We just moved there in May having sold our home in northern Virginia. We were only there about a month before we came up north here in Michigan. We have a home on Mullett Lake in northern lower peninsula Michigan. My husband had been coming here since he was 3 weeks old. His grandparents had a cottage here, his parents now live there and we purchased a home here 4 summers ago. This area is very unique in that it is very generational....cottages are passed down from one generation to another. All families know each other and when you first meet someone, rather than asking them their name, you find out which cottage they are associated with. We made the decision in 2005 that rather than move further south for the winters, we would move north for the summers and escape the oppressive heat and humidity of Virginia. This also makes a nice destination for friends and family to come when they want to visit us. We have a country club with a 9 hole golf course here in Mullett Lake Village, decent fishing in the lake, toys for the lake such as windsurf boards, wakeboards, water skiis and a Sunfish sail boat. Our village is around this bay in the northwestern section of Mullett Lake. I just checked the temperature and it is 96 degrees in Virginia but here at Mullett Lake it is 72 degrees and no humidity. Where would you rather be?
