Our Lake Michigan frontage offers you swimming, fishing and a range of water sports. Opportunities abound for bicycling and hiking. Games available include badmitton, shuffleboard, pocket billiards, horseshoes and tennis on our own court.
Leelanau County's cherry blossoms fill the air with sweet fragrances. The woods are beautiful in their fresh green and the trilliums and other wildflowers accent the trails. Be sure to bring your camera (and a bag for morel mushrooms!)
You are only a short drive from the wild granduer of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Enjoy the music of the masters at nearby Interlochen, home of the National Music Camp. You can explore Leland, a picturesque fishing village that is a favorite subject of artists and photographers alike. Nearby Lake Leelanau features public beaches, great walleye fishing and weekly sailboat races. Upon Lake Michigan and visible from Jolli-Lodge are North and South Manitou Island, which can be visited by a boat which leaves daily from Leland. Lake Michigan also offers world-class charter fishing and plenty of room for water sports. Midsummer brings the cherry harvest and the National Cherry Festival.
Join all of Leelanau County in celebrating the October Color Tour of red, gold and russet forests accented with the rich green of the pines and the white of the paper birch...it's an experience you'll never forget!
Jolli-Lodge is uniquely situated to provide you with a host of opportunities to satisfy your specific needs and desires...
...if your mood is quiet and restful, take long, relaxing strolls along the lake and watch its many moods; hike through the woods with the birds, the wildlife and the wildflowers as they change with the seasons; sunbathe or read on the lawn,; enjoy a quiet meal in your cottage or one of the many fine, nearby restaurants; or just sit and talk with old and new-found friends.
...if, on the other hand, your mood is restless, haunt the antique shops; go on a winetasting tour of the local vineyards (there's one just across the road!); seek out your favorite artisan at his or her studio; join the crowds at a local art fair, parade or festival; take in a play or concert (jazz to classical); or take a night out "on the town".
...if you're really bursting at the seams, try hang-gliding, wind-surfing or kayaking, climbing the dunes or ride your bikes around the County's scenic back roads.
...then return to us at the Jolli-Lodge to slow down, engage in conversation with some new-found friends; join us at the Thursday night pot-luck or Sunday evening marshmallow roast, sit in front of a beach fire as the sun sets and the stars come out and drop off to sleep with the sound of the lake in your dreams.
