Enjoy a weekend spent at my home on 40 acres of hardwoods along the beautiful Betsie River. You'll be treated to a series of skills workshops on Lower Herring lake followed by a Sunday trip on Lake Michigan to practice your new skills. We will introduce you to all the basic strokes, safety skills, group rescues and even some surf technique. Two comfortable nights lodging, several fine meals and equipment are all provided. You'll be able to swap stories over a glass of wine next to the fireplace or have a walk through the woods to the river when you are not out on the water.
