Leelanau County, located north of Traverse City, Michigan has always been one of our favorite destinations. It is home to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, many quaint little towns, a few dozen wineries, and miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. The Leelanau Peninsula is a place that has called out to us.
No matter the season, we have spent a lot of time enjoying this amazing piece of real estate. In 2011, ABC’s Good Morning America voted Sleeping Bear Dunes the most beautiful place in America.
While it is difficult to compare the varied landscapes in America, we do feel the area ranks right up there with the best of them.
In recent years, the area wine industry has become a major player in Michigan’s economy. Along wih it, the foodies have descended upon the area. Mario Batali spends his summers here. The food and wine are delightful!
So, you ask…what does that have to do with our summer? Well, we are going to be work camping at one of our favorite resorts!
Wild Cherry Resort is located between Sutton’s Bay and Lake Leelanau. Besides us, there is one other couple and room for a third (due to a recent cancellation). This will be our first work camping job, so while we know the park well from staying there, we haven’t seen it as workers. We have spoken with the staff in the past, and all of them have enjoyed the experience.
If you are interested in spending the summer work camping in an amazing part of the world, contact Jim at Wild Cherry through their website wildcherryresort.com.
Hopefully, we will get to enjoy the summer together!
