Experience one of Great Lakes best kept secrets, yes you can surf a lake!

This retreat is the best of both worlds; let go in nature and learn to surf one of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan! Imagine relaxing in a beautiful cabin with a wrap around porch set on 2 acres. There will be plenty of time to relax, restore with yoga, enjoy the hot tub and a bonfire after a day of exploring and surfing. Close to state parks, endless beaches, wineries and more. We have created a retreat to treat you to excitement, relaxation, connection, mindfulness, and fun!
