From Torch Lake to Petoskey— Unforgettable Homes! It’s October in Northern Michigan—our most colorful month, what with the riot of reds and golds in the woods and the deep shades of cobalt and turquoise that our lakes turn that time of the year. I can tell you for a fact that I know of seven homes in the Petoskey area that take full, splendiferous advantage of that view. I know because I have scouted them all for our 2016 Northern Home & Cottage Home Tour on October 15. (This is the second of our two 2016 tours—in September we walked hundreds of happy tourgoers through homes in the Traverse City area.) Each of these seven homes is on the water or has a full view of that beautiful H2O: Torch Lake, Lake Michigan, Round Lake, Walloon Lake and Burt Lake. Talk about a wealth of scenery. But I can also tell you that the scenery inside each home is equally breathtaking. I truly love each and every home on this tour. You’ll see shingle, lodge, cottage and Wright-esque architectural styles. You’ll see several massive single-sided fireplaces and two fireplaces with double-faced hearths, a European-inspired kitchen, a wallinstalled steam/convection oven (the latest in cooking trends), an outdoor deck that is cantilevered over a dune swale, a pond with fountains, and even a floor that still bears the marks of the lumbermen who walked over it in their heavy boots back in the day. There’s more of course! Take a moment to read the stories about these homes in this, our tour guide issue, and I all but guarantee you’ll be clicking on MyNorthTickets.com to purchase tickets. And while you are browsing the magazine, please linger over our Northern Style this month. Topic: A Taste of Bourbon. Art director Nicole Steffen and I are having a delightful time collaborating on this department—working to curate items that we hope will inspire you into creative new style directions.

vernacular. The contemporary farmhouse look is created using elements that include vertical board and batten, a metal roof, a generous front portico, mullioned windows and a color scheme of mocha, brick and white. The interior is a relaxed mix of transitional style complemented with vintage and contemporary accents. The floor plan revolves around a fabulous great room that features an expansive view of Walloon Lake through solid-glass French doors that open up onto a blue flagstone patio. A white coffered ceiling over the living area glams it up while adding intimacy. The open kitchen and a wet bar line the perimeter of the room, making both easily accessible. A relaxed sunroom off the great room speaks old cottage—just the place for a rainy day read or an evening board game in front of the fieldstone fireplace. 4 FIND DRIVING DIRECTIONS ON YOUR TICKET: MYNORTHTICKETS.COM.

When you’re a little kid, you don’t know how the simple act of building sand castles on the beach can have such a dramatic impact on your life. As I sit here gazing at what remains of this summer sunset over the lake, I can smell what must be the first night’s bonfire rising, and nostalgia nearly overwhelms me. Our family came “up north” in the summer like so many other families. For some of us kids, the water, the waves and the sand left impressions deeply ingrained in our consciousness. Over time, those feelings grew seductive enough to draw us back. I have never seen myself as the overly nostalgic type. But as I close my eyes while sitting here on the porch, it all comes racing back to me as an unforeseen gift. All the sights, sounds, and smells of those family vacations long ago swim through the warmth of a magnificent sunset.

home, one that added a master bedroom suite, and turned the former master bedroom into a library. Forward to earlier this year when the Meathes updated their kitchen with the help of renowned Atlanta architect Peter Block, who has forged his design signature in historically rooted architecture inspired by his European travels and vast collection of rare books. Block’s sublime, understated touch is everywhere in this kitchen—a bank of black-steel paned windows, Calcutta gold marble countertops, white furniture-style cabinetry and a black-and-gold La Cornue range—all of which work together for a quiet, classic elegance. The Miele steam/ convection wall oven (no microwave in this kitchen!) speaks to Jim’s eye toward healthy living trends. Gorgeous grounds, a vintage-cottage veranda and a carriage house apartment round out this must-see stop on the tour. FIND DRIVING DIRECTIONS ON YOUR TICKET: MYNORTHTICKETS.COM.

design team, bringing style and harmony to the kitchens and baths. From the cedar shake and stone façade to natural interior elements of wood and stone, the Arnolds’ new home blends perfectly into its wooded lot. In the great room, large banks of windows welcome in the fresh, deep-water vista, while the two-sided stone fireplace (one side faces the living area, the other faces the dining room and kitchen) heats up the rustic style. The rustic theme continues in distressed Douglas fir trusses, handsome custom wrought iron touches (truss braces, chandelier and stair railing), a hickory floor and sophisticated barn wood accents that echo a Ralph Lauren feel. A carefully curated use of stone on the interior is a true signature statement in this home. Beyond the fireplace, the frontdoor-wall is faced in stone from top to bottom, and touches of stonework continue through the dining room until they culminate in the pièce de résistance—a stone range-hood. Think lodge, fine country house, European inn—the hood, the kitchen’s focal point, executed by Jill Brecheisen of Kitchens by Design, evokes a bouillabaisse of home and hearth sentiments. Brecheisen complemented that powerful statement with creamy farmhouse cabinetry, black granite perimeter countertops and an island topped in a thick, polished slab of cordovan-colored granite she calls cowboy leather. A separate beverage area and walk-in pantry (paneled in the logoside of wooden wine boxes) round out this dream kitchen. Playing off the homeowners’ ideas, Brecheisen also designed the fabulous bathrooms in the homes. Don’t miss the master bath soaking tub set into a niche that’s paneled in barn wood, or the 4

We have to assume that Jim and Patti Anderson, the owners of this home on Round Lake, share a wonderfully understated Midwestern sense of humor with Garrison Keillor who made the humble town of Lake Wobegon famous on his radio show “A Prairie Home Companion.” The fact is, the Andersons’ home— which they have named Camp Wobegon—stands as one of the grandest that we have ever had on a tour.

The primary of these two fireplaces is a magnificent double-sided, floor-to-ceiling masonry masterpiece that faces the living area on one side and the den on the other. The open kitchen, executed by Kitchen Choreography’s Angela Goodall working with Young & Young’s interior designer, Michelle LaVictor, is a warm mix of creampainted maple cabinetry with glass fronts on the upper cupboards, quartz countertops and mossy glass subway tiles that play off the wooded views. With its organic materials, clean lines and cantilever, this home evokes a Frank Lloyd Wright-ian style. Wright would likely approve of the way the home’s carefully placed windows turn it into a prism at sunset—the Wietings’ very favorite thing about their beautiful new home.
