We have stayed with Darlene and Roger at Celibeth House only two time, but consider them friends, and that is the way they treat us. It IS going to your good friends' home. The decor is amazing and the breakfast can't be beat. Our regret is that we have only been able to stay for one night each stay. Location in the old resort and logging town of Blaney Park, MI is great for a central location, allowing plenty of flexibility to explore, from the Lake Superior and Lake Michigan coasts, the Tahquamenon Falls, various lighthouses, antique dealers, Seney Nature Preserve, national and state forests, good to great restaurants, the Pictured Rocks, Fayette Historical Site, and even some wineries near Manistique, Michigan.
