Imagine stealing away, just the two of you, for a day of golf, dinner at a fine Italian restaurant and a night in a waterfront condo overlooking Sleeping Bear Bay. Or how about just you, your fly rod and a two-day stint of schooling under the skilled eye of an Orvis guide? Or how about a big weekend for four in a three-story waterfront condo stocked with gourmet treats, where the only thing on the agenda is relaxing visits to wineries, farm markets, art galleries and the beach?

Now imagine you can have it all for free.
