Josie’s cabin is located on a heavily wooded hundred-acre site five miles North of Harbor Springs, Michigan. This part of a country provides a feast for the soul during each and every season: Spring is filled with hidden morels and trilliums whose blossoms look as though fresh snow had fallen. Summers bring lush ferns and other greenery – a stark contrast to the white sandy beach and thrillingly blue waters of the Lake Michigan shoreline. Autumn is Josie Mossburg’s favorite time of the year. Its unmatched calico of colors, warm days, cool nights, and a promise of winter festivals and a spring certain to come, is embedded in the earth and air. And winter, finally winter, with its solitude and silent beauty – its warm and welcoming glow in the freezing night sky.

Snow on the bedroom balcony reflects its own brightness on the beadboard ceiling of the upstairs bedroom.
The dining area is set into a bay of oversized windows; the beamed ceiling with a chandelier creates a lovely rustic elegance.
