Homes on Mackinac Island MI

I'm participating in Hooked on Fridays over at Hooked on Houses We're posting on stuff that makes us happy. Here we go:

After my daughter's wedding in June, my hubby and I took a little trip to Mackinac Island as he had a business conference to attend there. I spent a majority of my time gawking at the fabulous homes on the island. Here's a few of my faves (though I could do without the 'rear' shot here):Everyone's gardens were amazing....
LOVE the wrap around porch on this one:
The sunporch on the side here? HEAVEN on earth....
This one was probably my favoritist as it was tucked back from the road with a squeaky iron gate. Look at that wee tiny window gable at the top! I heart it...
Here the Grand Hotel where we stayed....one of the oldest in the nation. Opened the summer of 1887.
I dream of someday living in an old victorian farmhouse. Or maybe a craftsman bungalow. Then again, a mid-century cape cod sounds nice too. Instead, I'm treading water in an 80's ranch on a cul de sac until the kids finish school. At least this summer I got my fix on Mackinac!

And although the houses make me very happy.....this right here, now, makes me positively giddy. Nothing like Mackinac fudge to enjoy whilst perusing the quaint neighborhoods :o)

I love Mackinac Island, we used to visit there every year when I was growing up. I keep saying I am going to take my children. Such a beautiful place. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
