We have just celebrated 1 year in business here at Superior Orchards! What an amazing ride this has been. In October of 2018, we sold our family home down state, packed up our belongings and two dogs (we now have three 🤗) and headed north. As far north as you can get in Michigan, to the Upper Peninsula. As new “Empty Nesters”, we embraced the opportunity to start our second phase of life and do something we had only dreamt of doing once upon a time.
We purchased 20+ acres that included an Apple Orchard in beautiful Grand Marais, Michigan. The property was already fit with two “sleeping” cabins and a full heated bath in the pole barn. With a little sprucing up and creativity, a “Glampground” was born. We have been blessed with guests from around the globe during the summer months and many folks from neighboring states have graced our property for snowmobile season. One would think I had some horror stories to combine with the joys that we have experienced, you know, for dramatic effect, but I don’t.
There is truly something special about the people that choose to visit and experience Grand Marais, Michigan and the Pictured Rocks Lakeshore. Year round, there is always something amazing to see and do up here. From the gorgeous, frozen ice caves and mounds of snow in the winter, to waterfalls and an abundance of nature in the summer, your eyes never tire from taking in the sites and life experiences the great north has to offer.
We have witnessed the mighty Grey Wolf walk across the street in front of us as if we were in HIS way, to baby bear cubs climbing the pine trees in the front yard to retrieve, or steal the woodpecker’s suet. Sunsets that somehow always seem different from the last, to sunrises that are ceremonially summoned by the call of the many bird species that adorn our property. It has been an amazing year, and we have been blessed to call Superior Orchards home.
Here’s to another terrific year and many more experiences. You are welcome to snag a piece of paradise and come stay with us, we will keep the cabin warm for you.
