Babs visits the Blossoms on Round Lake

Posted on August 1, 2011


Babs Young has been out and about in Charlevoix.  She writes: Each week the Jordan River Arts Council sponsors a Plein Air Session. This last week they were at the Blossom residence on Round Lake in Charlevoix. The house is an iconic Earl Young with magnificent gardens. With a dock and view like this you can imagine what the rest looks like.

For those of you from Away, Round Lake is a little bowl between Lake Charlevoix and the Pine River channel.  The channel leads out to Lake Michigan; a drawbridge opens to let the bigger pleasure boats through.  There are a lot of those.  The entire shoreline is rimmed with docks and 50-foot boat slips and landscaped terraces rising to summer houses or condos.  It is a very festive place.
