AND IT (tomorrow technically) IS FALL!

With the arrival of fall has come a new trend: repeat phone calls! We hate it. It’s the worst.

Our front desk is only ever being worked by one person at a time, and we get A LOT OF PHONE CALLS. Plus, with 21 full rooms, we have guests on site who have questions/requests, and so there’s a decent chance we won’t always catch your call on the first or even fifth ring. STOP CALLING ON REPEAT — once or twice, leave a voicemail, send a text, email us, book online, DM, or PM. You got options folks, options that don’t include calling 15+ times in a row. That’s just stressful and aggravating.

If it keeps happening, we’re going to start assuming you’re having an emergency and forward you straight to the sheriff (just kidding, we wouldn’t do that, but truly, call that many times and we do worry).

We want to help you book, we want you to stay with us, we know you’re eager and that makes us so happy!! However, we so so appreciate your patience in reaching us to book for the remainder of this season and for those in our future! 💙

Here’s the latest orchard report, and some super-local ways to savor the abundance of local apples in the coming weeks. First a harvest report: Farmers Gene...

Thank you for everything you did, Rick, you’ll be missed. 💙

It is with great sadness that we let you know that Rick Lahmann, proprietor of Reflections Art Gallery in Fishtown for 25 years, passed away on September 8th. In the spring he had given his business after health struggles. Fishtown was a home to Rick and everyone there an extension of his family. Whether answering questions or entertaining visitors at his piano, Rick was a tireless, gracious and irreplaceable host in Fishtown. From all of us at Fishtown Preservation--we miss you.

Merch is all officially here! Totes, bottle openers, hats, tanks, tees, sweatshirts, stickers, and whatever is left of our pint glasses and travel mug-koozies!

Huge shoutout to @coopheston for being as hot as always, to @emrandalll and @ear_worms for designing SWEET AF designs we can throw on everything (including our bodies 🙌🏻), and @floodwell for printing everything (some of it twice after we accidentally recycled an entire order of totes…).

We started this process in April, and it only took us until almost Sept, so thanks for your patience! If you’re a local, swing on through or call the office to see about us shipping you things. Otherwise, we’ll see you soon. 💙

Stayed at the best dam lodge yet?

Welcome to Falling Waters Lodge in Leland, Michigan; we are the best dam lodge (in our not-so-humble opinion). The new lodge owners are Cooper and Emily Heston and we adore this place.

We've got an incomparable setting with views of the Leland River, the waterfall, Lake Michigan, boat docks, and Leland's 200-year old Fishtown (most of our rooms have water views!). Falling Waters Lodge is ideally situated for beauty and convenience - cross the charming footbridge over the falls into historic Fishtown and downtown Leland, take the sand path to Leland beach with miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shore, explore the widely-acclaimed Leelanau Peninsula or Sleeping Bear Dunes (declared by National Geographic the most beautiful place in America). You’ll also find many great local wineries, restaurants, and historic sites.

Whatever piques your interest, Leelanau County has something for you! Relax, feel the atmosphere, and enjoy a stay with us at Falling Waters Lodge.
