“Sheridan on the Lake”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

We just booked our fourth visit to the Sheridan. It is a beautiful home on a lovely lake.
You can see this for yourself on their website. What you do not see is what lovely people Barb and Bill are. They are exceedingly accommodating and kind people. They will do anything to make you comfortable including any special needs you may have. They also are very knowledgeable about the area including places to eat and what is going on in the area. This is our favorite B&B and we have experienced many.

In September 2012, my boyfriend and I traveled from North Carolina up to Houghton, MI. We spent a long weekend at Sheridan on the Lake, taking in the crisp air and beautiful scenery. Barb and Bill were the most welcoming hosts. We truly felt like we were at home there enjoying their company in the mornings over delicious breakfast. Our favorite breakfast they served up was homemade scones with devonshire cream & lemon curd, chilled strawberry soup, and fresh corn quiche.

One of the mornings we took the kayaks out on the lake. We did some exploring, down through the Pilgrim River and back. On one of the chillier evenings we got to enjoy the hot sauna. It was right down the path from our room that overlooked the lake. When we got nice and warm in the sauna we chilled off by walking down to the end of the dock and jumping in the water. Very refreshing!

The house is perfectly situated by the lake so we could just walk out our door and down the dock to watch the sunrise over the water. We relaxed in the hammock and enjoyed a lazy afternoon. That night, we took a blanket out to the dock and took in the gorgeous night sky. I had never seen stars like that- especially the shooting stars!

After spending a couple of days doing all there is to do at the house, we decided to go into town. Downtown Houghton is absolutely charming. We walked from store to store and had a great lunch at Suomi Cafe (a popular local spot). I recommend the pasty... coming from the south, we had never heard of them. It's essentially a meat and vegetable pie inside a flaky crust. On our last day we ate at The Ambassador- the pizza there is delicious!

It was a perfect vacation and a memorable one. The Sheridan on the Lake gave us an escape from the hustle and bustle- something we really needed before the Fall. I hope we get to go back very soon!
